  Weekly update, and a real Warthog! - Official
  Posted by: MrFlammable on 07-23-2007 @ 12:54 - Source: Bungie.net
This News Item has been viewed 5,454 times
Another Weekly Update courtesy of Bungie, featuring a few interesting thoughts and one juicy pic.

First off, rumors were flying everywhere lately about online co-op for Halo 3, which Frankie compared to "The Internetís hair was lit on fire." All that Bungie had confirmed was system link co-op would be in Halo 3, which of course gets blown out of proportion. All they had to say on the matter was,
All that said, EGM doesnít really know whether or not Halo 3 will ship with online co-op, only Bungie knows. ... As we approach the tail end of development, we will have a clearer picture of whether or not that online feature will be included. Assuming either way would be foolish at this time.

"Like a octogenarian with a bucket of prune juice, the Bungie Podcast is about to get more regular." Once Brian and Frankie finish their Halo 3 tour, podcasts should become weekly. The upcoming podcast is already in the works after people demanded more following last week's 35-minute show. Following Halo 3's release this fall, Bungie should be settling back into the regular routine of updates, including the Waahmbulance.

Remember how the sword functioned in Halo 2? Of course you do - but that's about to change. The Halo 3 sword is undergoing many tweaks, and now has a limited use in multiplayer like it already did in single player. There is also now a difference between pulling the right trigger and using the melee button, and sword to sword combat is also more interesting due to a mechanic referred to as "clang." Since it requires a well-timed button press, it could be guessed that this may have to do with blocking your opponent's sword.

If you haven't already seen the Halo: Arms Race live action short, you definitely need to go watch it now (scroll down past the screenshots on that article). Now the folks at WETA have made another incredible piece for the next short - a Warthog. A fully functional, four-wheeling, off-roading, gun-on-the-back Warthog. Next time you head to New Zealand, keep your eyes peeled for this familiar vehicle driving around.

Finally, if you think you're the biggest Halo fan in your area, you should enter to win the latest contest at Bungie. It ends Friday, July 27th, so hurry over to the update article, scroll down past the Warthog, and read how to enter.

Yeah, that's what I was wondering. I'm assuming if they're using it in the video, it probably works, or at least shoots blanks. Something that makes muzzle flashes and spews shell casings all over.

I'll have to agree with Reaper, it does look like it's a 3D model. The way it reflects and such looks weird, but no doubt it's real, look at the shadow.
Still looks funny.
