Halo 5 News
** Latest REQ Drop **
The all new Hog Wild REQ Drop has rolled into Halo 5: Guardians! This latest free content salvo delivers four awesome new Warthogs, new armor, emblems, attachments, and more to your Halo 5 experience. The Sword Needler Warthog, which has energy shields and a needle-firing chaingun, is a rugged ride wrapped in Covenant technology. Both Rally Warthog variants have greatly increased speed and armor, which make them perfect for attacks on the enemy’s base. Lastly, Halo 5’s most action-packed Warthog, the Vespin Rocket Warthog, fires and reloads high-acceleration rockets faster than anything on the battlefield. Outfit yourself in the new STINGER armor set and utilize the new Hybrid Sight attachments to take on the competition with deadly precision.
