  • 343 Industries has provided a first look at props from the Halo TV show, which is slated to premiere at some point in 2021 on Showtime.
  • The props shown include the hand of an Elite, a line of BR55 Battle Rifles, and a UNSC crate.
  • It is expected that the show will follow the events of the Human-Covenant War.

Halo developer 343 Industries has given fans a first look at some of the props that will appear in the Halo TV show that's coming to Showtime at some point in 2021 and that will most likely follow the events of the Human-Covenant War. In a blog post, three sets of props were shown off. The first is what looks like the hand of an Elite, one of the Covenant's warriors. The second is a lineup of BR55 Battle Rifles, which fans will remember as one of the most iconic weapons from Halo 2 and Halo 3. Lastly, a UNSC crate that's supposed to house ammunition was shown as well, which looks very similar to containers seen across the Halo games. You can take a look at the props below:

Overall, I think these look great. The weathering and detail on the props looks very natural and realistic, which makes me hope that all of the props and set pieces in the show are as good as this. It will be interesting to see how believable everything looks in motion. What do you think? Let me know down below.

The Halo TV show is expected to premiere at some point in 2021 on Showtime. Considering we won't be playing Halo Infinite until Fall 2021, we might actually get to watch some new Halo content before we play it. But hey, at least there's the Master Chief Collection on Xbox One and PC for $40, right? It's one of the best Xbox One shooters by far, so we highly recommend checking it out.

  • oh, the OLD Battle Riffle design... It's not because it's old that it's better than the updated ones
  • Even the props from Halo Outpost Discovery were amazing!! I loved it and would almost go back if i could
  • The hand and the crate look great! The BR, not so much for a show prop unless those are going to just be for background. Its pretty common to create rougher props for background shots and I would guess that is what those are going to be for. Now show me that hero battle rifle prop!
