Just when we think we have had enough epic Halo 5: Guardians news, well more comes our way. Earlier today some new information from someone who had supposedly played a recent build of the game and has chosen to share what info they have:

  • Incineration Cannon is back and has changed compared to Halo 4. Players can charge up a shot and the longer you charge, the more powerful it is. Battery based rather than ammo based.
  • Railgun is back from Halo 4 and works almost identically – could hold up to 11 shots
  • Overshield was present had some weird screen effect when you picked it up – looked like a bug
  • Boltshot is back but doesn’t work like halo 4 – no shotgun fire mode. fires two shots at once and sort of tracks players
  • Suppressor is back and fires a lot slower
  • Blue outline on weapons was in the build
  • Killcams were disabled in the build, could spectate players while you were dead
  • BR [Battle Rifle] spread was near-gone – fired so fast
  • Spartan chatter was reduced hugely, less pointless call outs
  • Pistol RoF [Rate of Fire] is modified to be slower but is a lot more powerful – competes with AR and BR
  • Ground pound is harder to use, radius is tiny

Along with the post, the user also shared some screenshots apparently captured during playing the game test:
