Halo 3 info leaked: new weapons, vehicles, features & Collector's Edition detailed [update 1]


Xbox Portugal has posted scans from an upcoming Halo 3 feature to be published in Swedish mag Level. Some serious translation work is needed before the full story comes into focus, but we have gathered that the images are from an alpha build of Halo 3, suggesting that many of the details won't reflect the final version. Check out the one-manned mini-Warthog Mongoose!

Xbox 360 Fanboy has a summary of the new details:


  • Spiker - a new Brute weapon
  • Spartan Laser - a laser that tears vehicles apart
  • Nail Grenade - sticks into walls, sends nails everywhere
  • Mongoose - the ATV that was cut from Halo 2; seats two, but no weapons; designed for recon
New Feature
  • "Man Cannon" - what it sounds like; launches you into the air (think: jump pads from Unreal, Quake Arena)
  • Bumpers are used to reload the right and left weapons independently
  • X-button has a "secret" function
  • Secondary weapon is now visible when not in use (slung over shoulder)
Collector's Edition
  • "Legendary Edition" - box is a replica of Master Chief's helmet, includes 4-disc set:
    • Disc one: game
    • Disc two: documentaries and developer commentary
    • Disc three: spin-off material (Red vs. Blue, Spark of Life, etc.)
    • Disc four: all cut scenes from Halo 1-3 in HD
    • Bonus: sneak peek of Halo movie will be included on one of the discs (maybe)
[Thanks to Galls & everyone else that sent this in!]
