The Halo Bulletin this week brought us the long awaited Covenant Weapon trailer, complete with more wub-wub. There is not much new in this video, or in the comments by various 343 staff about each weapon. Two things of note are that both David Ellis and Frank O’connor staid that the needler will be an important weapon on the higher difficulty campaign missions. Also, they mentioned that although someone who is sprinting slows down when being shot, sword wielders are immune to this. That might be a good thing if the sword is your favourite weapon, but as someone who is regularly on the bad end, I was looking forward to actually being able to take some of those guys down. I guess we’ll see if they clear this up.
