One of the great mysteries that lead to Halo Infinite is the identity of the Weapon AI. The trailers introduced her as Master Chief’s new companion, but her origins are puzzling for most of the campaign. Luckily, we get some answers when the game is over, including whether Weapon has a name or not.
Weapon is in Halo Infinite
Weapon has no name in Halo Infinite. However, like ‘s campaign the final cutscenes, pilot Ask her what he should call her. Since she is no longer just a weapon to be used against Cortana, Master Chief tells her she can choose her own name. To this, she said, “Well then… I think… I think I might have the perfect one.”
Unfortunately, the game ends before we get a chance to hear our chosen Weapon name. Maybe she’ll choose to be called Cortana after her predecessor, but that would be a bit awkward. Cortana is known across the galaxy as a crazy AI that kills millions. So carrying that mantle would probably be too much of a responsibility.
We’ll have to wait and see what name Weapon has chosen for us until the next story comes out. Halo Infinite is supposed to be a 10-year project, so instead of waiting until Halo 7 (or whatever it will be called), 343 Industries should release more campaign missions as DLC. However, a date is yet to be determined for that, and we’re not sure if a mission will release at the same time or if it will launch in campaign-sized installments.
Looks like Weapon is here to stay and is now Chief’s permanent AI partner. So for better or worse, players should be ready to hear her new name once it’s finally revealed.
