Check Out the Weapons of Alien: Covenant

Check Out the Weapons of Alien: Covenant

Our friends over at Break.com analyze the Alien: Covenant trailer to see just what weaponry the colonists will have to fight back.

We're just over a couple of months away from seeing Alien: Covenant in theaters, and we're of course scraping up all the info we can find on the Ridley Scott film. Luckily, our friends over at Break.com have been doing some of the work for us. They've analyzed the trailers for the upcoming film, and compiled a list of five weapons that the colonists will be able to use to defend themselves against the alien threat.

The official plot synopsis of the film reads, "Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant, which includes Walter, an android similar to David who was the sole survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition, find what they believe to be an uncharted paradise. It soon reveals itself to be a dangerous world inhabited by the original David and monstrous creatures that start to hunt them."

Alien: Covenant is coming to theaters on May 19, but if you need something to scratch you Alien itch until then, may we humbly suggest watching Yahtzee judge its cover?

if youre able to edit the title, you spelled covenant wrong

"Will their weapons be enough to save them?"
Pssh, of course not. The whole point of--
"Not likely."
...Oh, okay then. You guys already got that.

So can we safely assume that cloak guy with grenade launcher is David?

Yep. Thanks for the heads up!

Sniper Team 4:

If he managed to get himself a new body since Prometheus, maybe. Last time we saw him, he was kind of missing the everything from the neck down.

"Remote Planet". "Uncharted Paradise". "no protective, isolating suits to make sure you don't get infected with any unknown disease/microorganism".

"SciFi".

Hope the movie won't suck. Then again, I like Prometheus, so perhaps I have lower standards than others.

An important life lesson for colonists: When going on a colonizing mission remember to take the M14 DMR and not the fully automatic assault rifle. Not sure if either would help against aliens due to the carapace, but at least the DMR can be used against a larger number of potential threats in a wilderness than an Assault Rifle while also being more conservative on ammo. Probably would have taken a carbine as the small arms choice, but again, the only reason I could think of for taking a small arms weapon on a colonization mission is to deal with other colonists...

Now that I'm thinking about it, who brings a grenade launcher on an exploration ship? oo;
