Who's the Master Chief now!
Part of Halo's staggering success is undoubtedly down to the astounding weaponry brandished by its heroes and villains. But despite this genre-defining video game's stunning realism, it's not actually, erm...real (sorry kids). And that's a shame because getting to grips with one of those awesome hand cannons would be a dream come true for any follower of the Master Chief and his buddies. Enter the Halo 3 Covenant Plasma Rifle.
Yes folks, it's time to step out of Halo's pixellated world and get your mitts around an incredibly realistic, laser tag replica of the Covenant Plasma Rifle.
As well as its amazing detail, this full-size facsimile of the beastliest blaster in the Halo universe features Laser Pursuit technology, so you can play super soldiers for real.
Flange pops open when rifle overheats!
Functioning just like its console-based counterpart (minus the real plasma, of course), the Halo 3 Covenant Plasma Rifle fires an infrared beam that registers hits on an embedded LCD counter and comes complete with a wearable target. It even vibrates, flashes, recoils and recreates all the sound effects made by its pixellalled partner in destruction. But here's the really good bit: every time the H3CPR 'overheats' its heat exchange flanges pop open. How cool is that? Recreating that attack on New Mombasa has never been easier!
LCD counter and reload button.
Finished in a variety of high-quality materials, including pitted plastic and matt rubber, this amazingly detailed bang-bang is so convincing you could actually be in the game. In fact speaking of plasma rifles, it makes the Terminator's 40 Watt Phased job look like a pea shooter. You'll be running around like a fully paid-up member of a fictional militaristic and theocratic alliance in no time.
Even if you're not into playing tag, the Halo 3 Covenant Plasma Rifle is so impressive it's worth buying just to admire it in all its brutish beauty. So hurry up and hit Buy before the Master Chief drops by and seizes our entire shipment!
