Build your own Master Chief

Halo 3 will enable you to pick 'n' choose your own Spartan look in multiplayer, if data sifted from within the coded guts of the Halo 3 Beta is to be believed.

A blog called 7th Columnist (very neat) has posted a screengrab of the source files, which appear to show a number of different styles of armor. For example, there are five types of helmet listed - Default, Cobra, Intruder, Ninja and Regulator - and these five types are repeated elsewhere for types of left and right shoulder armor and body armor.

There also seem to be options for gamers choosing to play as Elite models, with Predator and Raptor types on offer, in addition to the standard look. In fact, if you take a peek at the Halo 3 Beta ViDoc "Is Quisnam Protero Damno!" there's a glimpse of what could be a different helmet type, right at the beginning during a shot in the caverns of Snowbound.

Or, it could be simply a back-holstered weapon, and we've just embarrassed ourselves. Why don't you take a look for yourselves - we've got the video right here:
