The trailer shows the seven Promethean weapons being used in multiplayer.
The Lightrifle is a mid to long-ranged weapon that features both three-shot burst and precision firing modes. The Scattershot is a close range shotgun with bullets that can ricochet off of walls.
The Suppressor is a fully-automatic rifle for close range. The Boltshot is a pistol with a powerful secondary charge shot, though the charge will automatically fire if held too long.
The Incineration cannon is a rocket launcher with secondary shots that radiate from the target. The Binary Rifle is a powerful one-hit kill sniper rifle for use at extremely long range, but can only hold two shots.
Finally there is the Pulse grenade, which saps shields and does not bounce. This allows players to throw it onto the battlefield with high accuracy.

Halo 4 is set four years after the events of Halo 3, marking the return of iconic hero Master Chief and representing the beginning of a brand new saga.
In addition to the single-player campaign, Halo 4 will feature a robust multiplayer offering through War Games, which will take place on the Spartan training ship Infinity and ties into the game's story.
343 Industries recently announced that there will be downloadable class specialisations available for multiplayer, as well as a War Games Map Pass providing access to future DLC maps.
Named 'Best Shooter' and 'Best Multiplayer' during Digital Spy's Best of E3 2012 awards, Halo 4 will be available exclusively on Xbox 360 from November 6 worldwide.
