Oh Dear, Halo 4 Has Jumped On The Dubstep Bandwagon

Look, this is supposed to be a post about an awesome new trailer featuring new and familiar UNSC weapons you’ll be using in Halo 4. The trailer is cool, don’t get me wrong, but the music makes me sad.

The following videos come from a new Halo Bulletin, showing off many of the weapons you’ll be using in the new game.

Thankfully, 343 Industries had the foresight to realize that Halo has never had dubstep in it before. So in addition to the regular trailer with the wubwubwubwubwubwubwubwub turned all the way up, there’s an additional trailer without that, so you can listen to the sound effects.

Here’s the trailer with the music:

And the one without:

Sorry, the videos are currently unavailable.
