Halo 5: Guardians - Needler concept

This is a concept sculpt I made for the Covenant Needler for Halo 5.

The model is based on Can Tuncer's model from Halo 4.

I was tasked with exploring a redesign of the weapon, applying the bio-mech Covenant style I had used for the Harvester for Halo 4: Spartan Ops.

Ultimately this concept/model wasn't used.

Halo 5 shipped with a Covenant Needler designed by Glenn Israel and Modeled/Textured by Andrew Bradbury.
