Halo 4 Promethean Weaponry Trailer

By
Posted on September 26, 2012 AT 06:13pm

In the variety of things Halo 4 will be bringing with it, one will be an entirely new faction of high-tech weaponry. In this new video from Halo Waypoint, we get a look at the seven new weapons introduced in Halo 4 based on Promethean technology.

Here’s a brief rundown of the details of the weapons, along with two versions of the trailer: one featuring background music, and another sans-music so that you can better hear the sounds the guns make.

For full commentary from the folks at 343 Industries on the Promethean weapon options, hit the link at the bottom of this story.
