Halo 3 assault rifle details

'I trust it like I trust my own arms.'

One of the guns you'll be doing the killing with in Halo 3 is the MA5C assault rifle, according to the Bungie website, marking the return of the weapon-type after its exclusion from Halo 2.

The MA5C's power will be somewhere between the original game's MA5B assault rifle and the BR55 Battle Rifle from Halo 2. You can also use the heavy butt of the gun as a strong melee attack, but it has no alternate fire option.

Like the recent Mongoose ATV details announcement, there are some helpful remarks to accompany the news.

"The MA5C is built like a brick outhouse with Venetian blinds. You can pound on a mike foxtrot with it like it was a sledgehammer," said one happy soldier, whilst another insisted that he trusts the weapon like he trusts his own arms.

The spring multiplayer beta is rapidly approaching, and Microsoft has previously told us to expect more ways for European gamers to participate closer to the date. So, stay tuned.
