During the development of Halo 5: Guardians, a system was concepted and drawn up by 343 industries for inclusion in the game, though was ultimately cut while being conceptualised for unknown reasons.[1]

History[edit]

The Forerunner Socket System was a weapons system cut from Halo 5: Guardians. It was a system to be used by mainly the Forerunner faction for their weapons and vehicles. The cores would have been able to be swapped out of the vehicles and weapons, but would not be able to be swapped between the vehicles or weapons.
