Light Rifle Re-Done (Colored) by PrinzEugn Light Rifle Re-Done (Colored) by PrinzEugn
The final version of my re-imagining of the Light Rifle from Halo 4.

I'm not a huge fan of how the forerunner weapons look in Halo 4, I don't think they quite match with the other forerunner stuff in the game.

But the real reason for doing this is that I think the Light Rifle and the Binary Rifle look way too similar (especially first person)... and I noticed during the Binary Rifle reload animation, there's some cool stuff (like the floating cylinder) that would have been cooler to have visible.

Anyway, let me know what you guys think!

Wow... this looks REALLY good. This gave me an idea... what if the skins for this replaced the yellow parts with different colors? The shots would also change colors. Just a thought. XD

Looks much more appealing than the in-game version.

The design that you have here differentiates itself from the Binary Rifle much better. As far as I'm concerned the Binary Rifle in Halo 4 is a stretched and elongated Light Rifle.

Nicely done.

Frankly, anything would be better than what we got.

Having finally played Halo 4 and seeing this colored version of your design, I have to say, it would fit in perfectly and would greatly differentiate the light rifle from the binary rifle.

Would you like to contribute it to the gallery of :iconenergy-weapons:?

Thanks! I don't do fan art very often... or maybe ever, I can't remember. Nice to know it has appeal beyond fans of the source material!

Very interesting concept. You should link the floating elements to the rifle though. :)

Have you seen the original Halo version? They pretty much just float there in the game, too. I like the unexplained floating because they set it apart as alien and a technology level far beyond our understanding.

I don't recall the weapons in Halo 1 having floating parts... I also searched on Google and didn't find any similar weapons. But it does make sense, being alien technology. Thank you for explaining. :)

Sure! It's a new motif thing for Halo 4. Here's the original and you can see the scope: [link]

Oh, I thought you meant the original Halo, as in Halo 1. I haven't played 4 yet. :)

Yeah, my wording was a bit ambigious looking back. 4 is good!

I just hid all of your comments, 95ACgrfs1228, cleaner that way. Yeah... bots just skim stuff. If I were really worried about people taking things I wouldn't have posted them.

(sigh) thanks. Let';s just say that my friends caused me to panic over that stuff a long while back.

PS. Sorry for the late reply. Also, decided to move accounts so, yeah.
