Rumor: ‘Halo 4′ DLC to include new armor abilities

A recently posted video has revealed two new armor abilities hidden in the code of Halo 4 that may reappear as downloadable content in the future.

YouTube user TheHaloCouncil was first to spot the extra abilities, which include Teleport and Hacker. The first transports the player a great distance forward in an instant, while the second cancels out whatever armor ability your opponent in direct sight has deployed. So, if you see some guy flying above you with a jetpack, the option to bring him back down to Earth is there.

Both powers seem to be pretty unpolished, and it’s unclear whether these will be later included as DLC or remain hidden within the game’s code.
