At first glance, this heavily modified Chevy Colorado ZH2 looks like a rugged, off-road military machine that could pass as a vehicle in Halo, but add in the hydrogen powered electric engine and now you’re talking things of the future! Revealed at the U.S. Army’s Annual Meeting and Exposition, the truck’s modified suspension and 37-inch tires makes this one powerful off-road machine. The new engine produces a lower heat signature and quieter operating noise, and since its only fuel is hydrogen, similarly to Halo’s Warthog, the only emission is water. The fuel cell powering the modified ZH2 is mounted in the bed of the truck and can be removed and used as a portable generator. Unfortunately, the truck is still undergoing testing and we likely won’t see it in use for another year.

We just can’t get enough of the new Forge tools that fans have been using to create awesome new maps and now prefabrications! While there’s not much in the realm of Halo news, the community is spurring with life as the Windows availability of Halo and the improved Forge tools make for some revisited territory in the Halo landscape. We also cover the latest Community Update as Godzilla T rejoins us in the co-host seat!
We usually like to stick away from promos, but this piece is one of the best we’ve seen yet from Halo 5 machinima. In the promo, we’re introduced to bounty hunter Amira and her android Andii. Their success in claiming the bounties before the other Tracers have earned her the title Black Mamba and is being pursued by an underground terrorist group.

October has just set in and the Community Update has returned once again to bring new us new Halo content. To start, Breakout was refreshed, and much of this update focuses on all the new changes.

The entirety of Blue Team figures by Mattel will be available soon, and Bravo highlighted a few Halloween costume ideas for Halo fans. Forza Horizon 3 and Killer Instinct were both brought up again, with KI releasing some new Halo content.

Gaming conventions are not only a great place to explore the latest in tabletop and video games, but also brings people and communities together, especially the Halo community. Pax West, formerly Prime, is the gaming convention to attend if you are a Halo fan with 343 Industries being just outside of Seattle in Redmond. Pax West showcased the latest content update, Anvil’s Legacy along with Halo Wars 2 Strongholds on the show floor, but some Halo community members had a special visit to 343 Industries with a chance to get some hands on time with the new content before release. For this show, we wanted to get a fresh perspective on the Pax attending experience for Halo fans. Sovth, our website designer, Toa Freak from Halo Canon and The Spartacat from Ultimate Halo all attended Pax for the very first time this year and shared their experiences with us.
Another week has brought about another Community Update, this one on the lighter side of information. Bravo briefly recapped that the team is listening and shared some details about seasons, with the Fall Season ending in October. HCS is still very much active with Las Vegas and Orange County events on the horizon, among others. This week a Twitter page dedicated to Halo products called @HaloGear was unveiled, and GrimBrotherOne spoke with the consumer products officer to talk about all things Halo. He also interviewed some authors who worked on the newest Halo novel, Fractures.
You can read more about all the above details and more (such as an interview with ArturBloodshot, the creator of the BTB map Unearthed) by going to HaloWaypoint.com.
