Best Design: Boomco Halo Covenant Needler Blaster

The real name Type-33 Guided Munitions Launcher also widely known as the painful Needler. It can fire up to 22 rounds of explosive pink crystal projectiles in Halo 4. The Needler can stack several needler together and cause a massive damage from super combined.


  • The top darts loading bay could light up when turn on which makes it look really cool
  • Like in the video game, the lights go out when you pull the trigger indicate that you are out of ammo
  • Smooth and crisp reloading noise
    Comfortable grip
  • The biggest Halo toy guns ever made from Mattel
  • Excellent built quality


  • Hassle front reload dart, should have come with a clip or automatic system

In conclusion, it does a good job in term of look-alike toys or costume matching. Most wanted weapon for Halo fans. We voted Needler Blaster as our best Halo Nerf Gun from Boomco this round.

Best Performance : Halo Boomco UNSC MA5 Rifle

Iconic Master Chief's 32 rounds halo MA5 assault rifle. The easiest automatic rifle can be used in the game. Not the most accurate weapon in Halo but could end up deadly if you stand right front of it.


  • Fast firing power due to its full auto capability
  • Amazing solid built quality
  • Felt like a real rifle when you holding it due to its heavy weight


  • Can be tiring to pump to pump 10 times for a kid
  • Pricey

In summary, the color is different from what you see in the game. A repaint job would make this the best Ma5 halo assault rifle toy for cosplay. Other than that, the automatic features make this an enjoyable gun to shoot. Remember to get a 20 or 40 rounds clip to utilize it automatic function fully. A truly must-have rifle for Halo fans collector.

Halo Brute Spiker

Spiker the type-25 Carbine featured in HALO 2 use by Jiralhanae during the era of Human Covenant War. It could fire up to 40 rounds of magazine. The Sharp front blade made this an unstoppable melee weapon when the ammunition runs out.


  • Pretty accurate design base on the game
  • Aggressive looking front blade
  • Nice and fast reload


  • Not compatible with 20 and 40 rounds clip

Overall this could be one most aggressive design compare with the others halo toy guns out there, definitely great props to have it with cosplay. I would really recommend this one for collection.

Halo Covenant Plasma Rifle Cover Charge Type - 25

The most used Halo plasma rifle from the the covenant race such as the Yanme'e, Unggoy and Kig-Yar. This plasma pistol is great medium range weapon with 100 battery unit per charge. The plasma charge is created from Forerunner tech which specialized in directed energy weapon.

Product Review:


  • Great looking plasma gun
  • Colors and design are almost identical in game
  • Solid weight for handgun
  • Real nice and sturdy feel of slide and reload


  • Cant think of any yet

BoomCo only releases 2 type of handgun in this series. Both are really great gun to own for a really reasonable pricing for this level of details and performance. In my opinion, I like the smaller M6 halo gun toys more than Type-25 plasma which kind of looks like a fish shape gun.

Reload: Slide and pull

Ammunition: Single shot 5-dart *4 additional slots below

Product Dimension: 2.2 x 11 x 10 inches | Weight: 11.4 ounces

Halo UNSC SMG M7 Replica Blaster

Known as the powerful HALO SMG M7 Sub Machine Gun in the game can fire up to 60 rounds of magazine with one reload. It shines brightly when dealing with close combat situation, simply because of its rapid burst of 60 rounds of bullet that could penetrate any armor instantly.



  • Great huge front muzzle


  • Poor grip, lack of space for bigger hand
  • The front grip is left hanging and rattle

In conclusion, i would personally avoid this halo gun toy if possible. It still scores pretty fair in term of design and aesthetic but not the best in handling and ergonomic design. Still, a very cool gun to have as your Halo gun collection.

Halo Covenant Type - 51 Carbine

Semi-automatic Type-51 Carbine Blaster could fire up to 18 rounds of magazine per reload. Widely use by the Covenant soldier, Carbine is specifically use for medium and long range combat. Covenant develop a special ammunition for Carbine which utilizes the technology of radioactive projectiles.


  • Accurate design of Carbine
  • Looks Futuristic
  • Great reload speed, and slide is fluid and easy to pull


  • Tiny and cramp
  • Far from the exact size of a real Carbine
  • Not suitable for competitive play

The major disadvantage of this halo guns toys model is that the size is way too small from the original length, make it look like a pistol size weapon instead of full length semi-automatic rifle. The MA5 Rifle is almost two times bigger than the Carbine. It doesn't fit as a cosplay for adult, but would fit perfectly for children costume.

Reload: Slide and pull

Ammunition: 6-dart QwikClip  *6 extra slots at the bottom of the Carbine

  • Compact
  • High firing power despite the small size
  • Include target sight


  • Smallest Gun
  • Slow priming

This is the cheapest and smallest toy halo guns in Boomco line. The details, design, and lining are relatively accurate to compare in game. Not suitable for competitive nerf gun halo battle due to its small size and slow priming.
