New Weapons:
*Spiker: the weapon of choice for brutes.
*Spartan Laser: An anti-veichle weapon, fires a red laser that pretty much destroys any veichle that is hit.

New Veichle:
*Moongoose: The ATV that was supposed to be in Halo 2. It carries 2 people and it doesn't have any weapons so it's mainly a means of getting from point A to point B as fast as possible."

from gamefaqs
Swedish magazine level has had the chance to play halo 3 in multiplayer and there are 3 levels which is revealed,
Valhalla = blood gulch, High Ground = Zanzibar, Snowbound = Frost bite.

New vehicle - Mongoose, mostly for transport 2 persons.

new weapon- spartan laser, hard to use but extremely powerful vehicle destroyer apparently

- nail grenade, sticks on walls and emits nails into the air.

new weapon - spiker (brute weapon),

your secondary weapon is visible at all times at your back. (THANK GOD!!!)

New transportation system in multilayer- man cannon, launches you into the air through air streams, you can still be fired at and you can fire back.

The X-button will have a special use which Bungie will not reveal.

No bots will come to H3. that will be all.

You know, I really liked Halo and Halo 2. However, I've got to admit that I'm far more excited about Gears of War and Call of Duty 3 right now. Even if Halo 3 was coming out in a few weeks, I'd still probably wait to pick it up until I was finished with the other two.

Halo 3 is still ALPHA. Most of the graphics are placeholders that came from Halo 2.
My ex-friend once told me that if I'm going to use big words, I ought to learn to use them correctly. I didn't mind what he said as much as I did his simultaneous tone of voice.

I don't think Halo 3 is underwhelming because of the graphics. I'm seriously curious as to how they can really introduce anything new to the series. Halo 1 and 2 are pretty good, but aside from the whole arbiter thing and the early city stages in Halo 2, they're very, VERY similar games. Halo 3 looks to just have a different story but basically the same gameplay (except for a few new weapons and this x-button thing). But in all honesty, what were people expecting? A new Halo game needs only have some new multiplayer maps and get a release date to be a success.
