The Stasis Rifle is a Forerunner weapon that was cut from Halo 4. It fires a small projectile which, upon impact, explodes into a large bubble, in which all players' movement speed is reduced. Due to being unfinished, it has no first-person animations and is largely untextured. As it was never intended to be in the final game, it cannot be obtained through legitimate means.
While developing the Halo games, Bungie, 343 Industries and Ensemble Studios have had to cut some content, such as vehicles, gameplay, and story elements, from the final products. Much of this content has been confirmed by videos and commentary in special edition DVDs, interviews with developers, and released concept art.
