Pre-Order Halo:Combat Evolved Anniversary, Get Exploding Grunts, Chief Suit
Easily one of my favorite things to do back when I played Halo 3 and Halo: Reach was to gather some friends and play some games with the Grunt Birthday Skull on. I couldn’t help but to laugh as Grunts panicked and scattered every time one of their friend’s head exploded in a shower of colorful confetti while people yelled “yayyy!”
Those who pre-order Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary will gain another way to torture the small, clumsy cannon fodder: The Grunt Funeral Skull. When this skull is turned on Grunts will explode in a bright blue fireball, igniting all other Grunts around it. Imagining the beautiful chaos already brings a smile to my face.
Besides the inevitably fun Skull, players will also receive a set of MJOLNIR Armor for their Avatar.
