343 Industries surprise launched the multiplayer half of Halo Infinite as part of its 20th Anniversary celebration. Halo fans have spent the days since unlocking their first skins for what could be a 10-year journey, completing the season one battle pass via Halo Infinite‘s unique challenge-only progression. Those looking for a unique cosmetic that doesn’t require grinding out Halo Infinite have another option, however. Exclusive Halo Infinite multiplayer skins are being offered with select NERF gun purchases.
Two NERF gun skins have now been confirmed for Halo Infinite. NERF versions of the Halo Infinite MA40 and Bulldog SG weapons are now available to purchase at retailers. Each gun will include a digital code that unlocks an in-game version of the NERF weapon, which is to say that an MA40 NERF gun will unlock a unique MA40 skin in-game and a Bulldog SG NERF gun will unlock a unique Bulldog SG skin.
The two skins are both similar with regard to their color scheme. The MA40 and Bulldog SG both feature a white base with green and orange accents. Orange is, naturally, used for each gun’s barrel and magazine/cylinder to provide a visual cue for them being fake weaponry. They’re not necessarily visually attractive skins, but they’re also meant for children and sci-fi fun. With a kid-friendly focus in mind, the two NERF weapons seem well-designed.
But the fun doesn’t stop there. Those who purchase either the MA40 or the Bulldog SG NERF gun will also get a bonus cosmetic to wear in Halo Infinite. In addition to the weapon coating, Halo Infinite players will also get a NERF dart charm. The weapon ornament is a purple nerf dart with an orange tip on one end and a silver keychain ring on the other. It’ll bounce around merrily as Halo Infinite players leap and slide in Halo Infinite’s multiplayer.
The NERF Halo Bulldog SG Dart Blaster has an MSRP of $36.99 while the NERF Halo MA40 Motorized Dart Blaster is a bit more expensive, priced at $52.99. Both NERF guns are currently available at retailers including Amazon, Walmart, Best Buy, and elsewhere.
These two weapons aren’t the only NERF toys being made in partnership with Halo Infinite, either. A premium NERF Needler is also being made, though it’s currently only available for pre-order and costs a hefty $99.99. There are also three other cheaper Halo guns available in the NERF Mangler, NERF Microshots Needler, and NERFT Microshots SPNKr.
Halo Infinite multiplayer is available now on PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
Square Enix and Eidos-Montreal release a new patch for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, fixing bugs, adding new features, and improving performance.
