Recently, the guys over at the 7th Columnist did some digging and stumbled upon what looks to be a render of the rumored Halo 3 Brute Excavator weapon.
Definitely has coolness potential and sounds pretty legit, too. I think I'm gonna go watch the Brute-doc vid now, just to see for myself...
In less than 12 hours and all will be known about Halo 3.
Good find though!

Certainly possible, but I think there's a little more evidence backing up the "Excavator" rumor. Love the Killzone helmet, though!
Well Bungie has said that they have not shown all the weapons and stuff so it could be one of the things.
I've seen this weapon before or atleast something like it in that old video of what Halo used to look like when it was first in development.
I'll try to find the vid on YouTube.
Edit: at 2:49 you see a weapon that is very similar to that render.
It seems like it'd be a shotgun type weapon (I say that because he was firing it single shot and it had to refresh).
Check out the vid...
There sure were alot of other weapons.
Grr I only hate the fact that the Master Chief is indestructable.
C'mon Bungie. I don't care if your made of titanium. A pt. blank cannon round to the chest isn't going to leave you in one peice!
Now that I've got that off my chest. I hope to see some more weapons in the final game. This one looks cool. Lots of power I bet. Thats where my little rant came from. This gun looks like it should remove limbs upon impact. Lol.
<EDIT> @ VirusE: Lol. Yea I do remember that. But my point is. Even if his shields are down, a cannon shot still will just kill him. No limb-loss. No vaporization. No complete destruction of his body. Which would really happen. All I'm bickering about is that most games are starting to incorporate some more realistic gore. I just thought that Halo should at least be one of the trendsetters in that area, rather than sticking to the past.
Did you skip the tutorials at the beginning of halo 1 and 2 or something? His chest plate doesn’t deflect the cannon shot his energy shield that’s strong against projectile weapons does. His Armor is weak against bullet weapons but strong against plasma hence why “the sauce” works. He is so strong because he has protection against both forms of weapons.
Uhh this is a fantasy game, and will have fantasy concepts meaning "not real", games like Call of Duty 4 or mercenaries should incorporate carnage into their games like gears of war.
whatever dude, you don't like halo the way it is go become a sony fanboy because that's what your sounding like right now SO STFU.
Fantasy game? Sci-Fi game? Whats the diff?
Your saying Gears is more realistic?
Chainsawing a creepy mole-person is more realistic than flying through space and killing crazy religious aliens?
I'd say neither are fantasy. Neither are really realistic. But I'd say flying through space in the future is more realistic than some crazy planet with mole-people underground.
My point is, so F**king what if it's not a real conflict. It should still incorporate realistic concepts into the game. Such as realistic battle damage. It's just next-gen man.
BTW your saying that Mercenaries is realistic? Oh yea crazy Norwegian men always jump on the end of a tank cannon and run up to conviently open the hatch and throw a nade in. Don't you think it would be more REALISTIC if the hatch was LOCKED?
