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."

Fans can expect the game's release sometime this year. Franchise manager Frank O'Connor recently stated that Halo 4 had progressed to the "crunch" stage of development.
