Video: Halo 4 clip fires deadly UNSC weapons

Posted by Shane McGlaun

Halo 4 is probably one of the most anticipated video games of 2012.

Yes, Microsoft and 343 Industries have been putting the finishing touches on the latest iteration of the franchise, while hyping a game that probably needs very little PR to build excitement amongst the geek masses.

As you may recall, the first glimpse of actual Halo 4 game play made the obligatory rounds on the web in the form of a purportedly leaked VHS tape.

Fortunately, yet another Halo 4 video has turned up on the Internet this week which showcases some of the cool new weapons. The latest iteration of Halo packs quite an arsenal for players, including the Assault Rifle, Magnum, Battle Rifle, DMR, Rocket Launcher, Shotgun, Sniper Rifle, Sticky Detonator, SAW, Spartan Laser, and a Railgun.

Personally, I think the most intriguing weapons are the laser and railgun. Of course, all of the weapons look painfully effective, and the game play footage shows some pretty sweet multiplayer action. And yes, you can also see for yourself how effective some of the weapons are against vehicles in addition to other Spartans. So check out the video above to see some of the weapons in action.

Oh, and let us make sure not to forget about the live-action Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn movie that will be aired in segments each week - until the official launch of the game on November 6.
