A new Halo Infinite gun was revealed on Thursday, March 25. As the days draw closer to fall 2021, we have only received so much information regarding the weaponry set to be in Halo Infinite. The Halo Infinite gameplay premiere trailer back in July 2020 showed us a number of weapons that, in one way or another, seemed like rehashed and recycled models of fan favorites - such as the Assault Rifle, Magnum, Plasma Rifle, and Shotgun.
Even the Banished weaponry seemed to be reminiscent of the Covenant- and Brute-origin weapons of Halo 2 and Halo 3. Now, for the first time in a Halo game, a new weapon will be included that feels like it will bring out the most violent aspect of the Brute lore.
New Halo Infinite Gun Revealed
343 Industries revealed the design for a Banished weapon called the Skewer. This weapon was revealed during an "Inside Infinite" Q&A session with 343 Industries' audio development team. The weapon's sound design can be listened to in the Q&A session. To briefly describe it, 343 Industries designed an eerie, powerfully savage sound that matches the weapon's design.
Traditionally in Halo lore, the Skewer is an anti-tank weapon used by Banished, used by the Brute forces. The launcher fires a large spike capable of piercing through the tank armor, energy shields, and even Spartan armor. Naturally, the weapon will also have strong anti-air and anti-infantry capabilities as well.
Though we may now have a more definitive release date than fall 2021, hopefully a gameplay demonstration of this weapon will be shown before then.
