Halo Waypoint giving away Master Chief figure tonight
Hey, Halo fans and night owls! Halo Waypoint is offering you a chance to win an impressive Square Enix Master Chief figure, valued at $54.99 and based on the Halo: Combat Evolved design. The contest window extends from now until 11:59 PST (Pacific Time), or 2:59 EST (Eastern Time).
To win, follow the official rules and tweet "your thoughts on the return of the BR" to @HaloWaypoint by the deadline. For those scratching their heads over the acronym, "BR" stands for Battle Rifle, which is returning in the upcoming Halo 4 from developer 343 Industries.
"It's not just a weapon, it's the weapon," former Bungie game designer Jaime Griesemer told Joystiq in an interview published last year. "For a skilled player, they spend most of their time using that one weapon. If you never miss, it's the most effective tool in the toolbox. So for them, Halo 3 is the Battle Rifle. All their Halo emotion and experience is tied up in it. So it isn't surprising to me when people react that way."
