Modders uncover flamethrower in Halo 3, more


It seems that a group of crafty modders have uncovered what could be new content from Halo 3. Apparently, some modders have dug into the Halo 3 beta code and found mention of several new weapons, vehicles, and new names for medals (Double Kill, etc). While some of this information is likely to be placeholder or possibly even trash that has yet to be deleted from the final code, it does add some interesting ideas to what we already know. See a list of what was found after the break.

Vehicles:
  • Pelican
  • Shadow
  • Phantom
  • Chopper
Weapons:
  • Flamethrower (Frankie hinted at this in his interview with Joystiq)
  • Plasma turret
  • Claymore grenade (possible codename for Spike Grenades?)
  • Covenant Gun Tower (possibly a new kind of turret?)
Equipment items/Power-ups:
  • Jammer (possibly the radar scrambler shown in a leaked video)
  • Invincibility
  • InstaCover
  • Smoke (smoke grenade? smoke screen?)
New Medals:
  • Killocalypse
  • Killionaire
There is also talk of a new mode called Infection, in which players kill Flood or risk infection. Points are awarded for killing Flood, while those on the Flood team earn points by infecting humans. There is even mention of a map editor. Now, keep in mind that none of this is in any way official. Also, the info has since been removed from the forum on which it was originally posted. There is a very good chance some (or even all) of this content will not make it into the retail release. Take it all with a cubic foot of salt.
