MA40 assault rifle
Produced by Misriah Armory, the MA40 is a part of the MA series of assault rifles, sharing a number of visual similarities with the MA37 favored by the UNSC Army. The weapon is highly effective at close-quarters combat, capable of fully-automatic fire, and feeds from 36-round detachable box magazines. Visible above the trigger guard on both sides of the weapon's body are fire selectors, with three dots for positions. One is black, and the others are red. This indicates two other modes of operation, one of which is likely safe. As with the MA37, the MA40's charging handle is positioned on its left side, and its ejection port on the right. The MA40 used by John-117 in 2560 features a dark grey and black finish, with a faint stripe running across the cowling.
The MA40 was first seen during the Discover Hope trailer for Halo Infinite, which was shown at E3 2019. Its name was first revealed when the NERF toy based on the weapon was announced in February 18, 2020. Purchases of the NERF MA40 come with a code that unlocks a skin for the weapon in Halo Infinite.
