Think I've seen a few gravity guns on CE before, but I was more referring to the entire franchise. The games are (at least used to be) heavily based around the physics and the way players/ai interacted with them and the environment. I'm surprised we haven't seen one in a official title yet.

E: regarding my video, the gun can do more then pick up vehicles.

It can:

-pick up and throw bipeds (multiple at once)
-pick up weapons (though this is pretty useless)
-pick up and throw dead bodies (this is also hilarious, as AI will dive away if you throw a biped or dead body at them)
-catch and return enemy grenades

Those are some very cool features.
I never got into OS, but I'm curious, how do you hook "into" Halo to achieve such features?
From a developer PoV, not the guys who hack into the source code and do all the reverse engineering.

It was actually quite simple and required 0 scripting. Open sauce has an option to reverse the impact force of damage effects. I took the existing plasma pistol weapon, placed some markers in the model where I wanted the objects to gravitate towards and that's it.

The only difficult part was achieving balance when picking up objects. Bipeds generally cooperate well however vehicles can be a pain in the ass.

I had to fiddle around with marker placement to get it right.

In the end I ended up using a triangle of markers that all work together, with one marker in the center. The outer markers act as a small gravitational pull to nearby objects, while the inner one does most of carrying. The outer markers help balance the force of the center marker, so the vehicles don't go mad and fly around without control.

Amazing! Now give it a model based off the old Gravity Wrench from the pre-xbox Halo!

It works a lot better than I thought it would. Zero scripting too, huh?

Bravo, sir.

Are you seriously trying to say that those shaders look good? Really? Honestly? Are you sure?


Needs mawr lens flare.

I would rate it a solid:

Rigil kentaurus/sirius

There's a gravity gun on the Zanzibar map made by the H2CE team.

H2 Zanzibar and H2 Zanzibar updated

explains the gravity gun. (just ctrl f gravity gun)

Also the gravity gun was finally introduced into the whole halo franchise as the monitor in forge mode. That's basically a floating gravity gun.
