After announcing Halo 5's new Anvil's Legacy DLC this week, developer 343 Industries has now released the full Req lineup, detailing the expansion's new maps, weapons, items, and more.

As announced previously, the new maps are Temple (Warzone Assault) and Mercy (Arena), the latter of which is a reimagining of Halo 4's Haven map. Some of the new weapons include the Tactical Magnum, as well as Wicked Grasp and Berserker's Claw, which are classified as rare and ultra-rare respectively.

Halo 5 senior systems designer Dan Wiksten shared more insight on the new assaults cannons in 343's newest weekly blog post, which you can find below the video.

Assault Cannon: Wicked Grasp

"Need to protect a base against infantry? The Wicked Grasp should make it easy to hold on and defend. It fires a burst of homing plasma shots that will drop a Spartan really quick. The projectiles have a slower velocity than most UNSC weapons, so effective range is diminished and the weapon is best used at short to mid-range."

Assault Cannon: Berserker's Claw

"Equally effective against infantry as well as medium vehicles, the Berserker’s Claw requires a short charge up before it can be fired, but does fire projectiles that will explode on impact and possibly take out a cluster of targets with one shot. The projectiles also track flying vehicles, and are a great counter to early vehicle play."
