Halo TV Show Teases The Master Chief’s Most Powerful Weapon
Following a major Covenant attack in Paramount’s Halo series, Master Chief’s Silver Team teases a powerful, classic Spartan weapon from the games.
Warning! SPOILERS for Halo episode 6.
Following a massive attack by extraterrestrial Covenant forces, Paramount’s Halo series sees Master Chief and his fellow Spartans prepare for their next encounter in Halo episode 6, teasing one of the most powerful weapons in games. While many Covenant weapons are energy and plasma based, the UNSC has its own advanced technology weapons, one of which is specifically used by Spartan soldiers. After this new tease, the Spartan Laser could be seen in future action sequences.
In Halo episode 6, the UNSC is recovering from the airstrike they suffered at the hands of the Covenant. Not only were waves of ground troops consisting of Grunts, Jackals, Elites, and even a Brute deployed, but a squadron of Banshee aircraft were launched to strafe the UNSC base and its ship of commandment. Now, it looks like Master Chief and his Silver Team unit intend to be ready for the next time they face the alien empire.
Back in the UNSC world of Reach, it is revealed that HaloSpartans Kai-125, Vannak-134, and Riz-028 have been tasked with familiarizing themselves with the latest updates available. This includes the M6E G/GNR, better known by its in-game moniker as the Spartan Laser (or “Splar”). According to the canon of the games and novels, Spartan lasers are the most expensive and powerful weapons created by the UNSC, designed in tandem with the Spartan’s MJOLNIR armor (hence the name). Vannak and Riz also confirm that the anti-vehicle weapon is capable of five shots before its battery needs to be replaced, the same maximum charge capacity seen in many games.
Seen how HaloThe Spartans and their MJOLNIR armor have been active with the UNSC for quite some time, interestingly the Spartan Laser is introduced as something brand new. Even so, it makes sense that the gun would be saved for later in the season, given the awe-inspiring spectacle it will no doubt create. As seen in the games, the powerful laser gun is able to destroy enemy tanks with ease. This will definitely come in handy if Master Chief and Silver Team take on the Covenant Banshees in future episodes.
Hopefully the Spartan Laser will be more than a quick Easter egg, as the spectacular action of this weapon (and many more to be seen) is sure to be taxing on the show’s budget and special effects department. televised. Seeing him in action would be very satisfying, especially after the final victory of the Covenant in the previous episode. Considering the fact that the HaloThe classic (and super-powered) Covenant Needler was teased ahead of its action-packed debut in a following episode, odds are good for the appearance of the Spartan Laser, as the Halo The TV show continues.
