Grenade launcher CLUSTER
The Grenade Launcher CLUSTER is an unused REQ weapon that can be found within the files of Halo 5: Forge. The weapon appears to have been fully modelled, textured, and functionally implemented in-game based on the existing Grenade Launcher. It is unknown why it was cut from the game.
Like other M319 grenade launchers, it can be fired immediately or held down to manually detonate on release. Additionally, manual detonation results in an EMP effect. Upon detonation, the projectile will split into 8 separate projectiles dealing damage in an area. Due to the spread and EMP effect, the secondary fire could be useful in disabling air vehicles. The splinters attempt to assemble into the same shape made by splinters of the traditional splinter grenade. Said shape is a plus-shape viewed from one side and a horizontal hexagon viewed perpendicular to that side.
Files within Halo 5: Guardians show that 343 Industries was planning on releasing some Brute weapons into the Halo 5 sandbox - possibly to coincide with the release of Halo Wars 2. These weapons coincide with a new scope variant planned for inclusion for use on loadout weapons.

Contained within the files of Halo 5: Forge are scopes of Brute origin. The scopes are compatible with the Battle Rifle and Assault Rifle, and may have been intended to coincide with the 2016-2017 release of Halo Wars 2 - which primarily focused on the Banished as an enemy.
