A few more Halo 4 details escape

343 Industries has pulled back the cloak or secrecy on a few new Halo 4 tidbits, revealing two somewhat significant changes.

First up is a new weapon that’s been added to the arsenal. Bow down now, to the Asymmetric Recoilless Carbine-920, or the Rail Gun as us common folk will call it.

This beast, pictured below, is “a compact-channel linear accelerator that fires a high-explosive round at incredible speed, delivering both kinetic and explosive force to both hard and soft targets alike.” In other words, stay out of its sights.

The second bit — and the more controversial, no doubt — is the decision to ditch dual wielding. It’s one weapon at a time from now on, space marine.

Halo 4‘s out on November 6th.
