It is one of the most iconic weapons in the Halo series - an alien gun that's tricky to use effectively but devastating in the right hands.

Keep the reticule on your target then boom.

Now, this weapon can be held in real hands, because Microsoft's made a Halo 5 special edition that includes an actual Needler gun.

The £450 Halo 5 Pink Mist Edition includes a 1:1 Needler replica model that comes with LED lights and in-game sounds created with the original digital files used in the game.

Wonderfully, over 14 needlers pop up and down in sequence when the trigger is pressed. Look at it. Just look at it.

You get other stuff, too, including a statue of Master Chief and Spartan Locke, and the Halo: The Fall of Reach animated series, but who cares about that when there's a real life Needler?

The Halo 5 Pink Mist Edition is exclusive to Game in the UK. Go nuts.
