Giving away PAX swag. 343 was being fairly generous with patches and posters and such, so I ended up with duplicates of a few items. I've decided to share the love and give them out to my fellow HaloGAFfers.

First up, an ONI patch. First person who answers the following question wins.

Name three weapons that are in previous Halo games, but not in Reach, that are returning in Halo 4.

More GI stuff:

Promethean Weapons:
Boltshot - Pistol
Binary Rifle - Sniper.
Incineration Cannon - High explosive. Fires several streams of explosive particles along multiple paths that detonate and spread on impact. Mixes traits of the rocket launcher, shotgun, and flame thrower.
Light Rifle - Comparable to the Human DMR and battle rifle.
Supressor - Automatic rifle. Fires bolts of charged Hardlight that pierce and destroy organic material. A favorite of the Forerunners for use against the flood.
Scattershot - Shotgun
Pulse Grenade - Creates an area of effect that slows vehicles and damages both shields and health.

I assume this isn't everything. I would expect a vehicle or two at least and some more classes of enemies.

Where did 4 of those come from? I've only ever heard of the LR, Boltshot, and ScatterShot.

They were all in the PAX build, and are briefly detailed in the new GI. All Promethean. Each one matches a UNSC weapon for the most part.

The encounters get complex and varied. Knights can spawn a Watcher off their backs. Watchers can then deploy a Hardlight Shield for the Knight, revive dead Knights, and call in Crawlers. Frank makes it sound like he doesn't think there will be a go-to strategy for beating the game on Legendary.

Between these guys and the Covenant, should make for some fun encounters.

so.. Solo Legendary will be a bitch you say?

Okay.

Situation is tentative at the moment, but at this point it seems more likely than not that I can go to NYCC. There are some details I have to work out, like whether or not I'll have to drive up to RDU to get a direct flight, but other than that I'll be pretty much set in the next few days. I'll purchase the tickets when my next paycheck comes in.

Maybe in terms of big bad assery, but other than that not really. Big and intimidating, have hardlight shielding, Scattershot, Autosentry Turret, and the big sword arm thing they have. Since they are also a Knight, they will be very intelligent. Knights in general sound far more agile than a Hunter would be. It does say they get sent in when all else fails though.

Prometheans sound like they are going to be srs bitches to fight. Sounds exciting.

I know for sure I'll be rooming with you guys. I'll be coming in Thursday night most likely and will be leaving Sunday night.

I'll get back to you on the audio equipment. I'm not sure I can rent it out and take it to New York with me. We'll see. What I would need isn't large at all, so it'd be carry-on luggage.

I've said it's a club's on here before. I'm an officer, so I should be able to take it, but due to the situation, the rest of them would have to approve.
