UNSC Weapons Pack Package
The box front. Again, another with the new clean white graphics. As with the other weapons pack, this has a nice window to view the figure and weapons.
UNSC Weapons Pack cardback
The back of the box showing the weapons off. Once again, note the other sets that can also be combined to make a larger set.
UNSC Weapons Pack contents
Here is what you get in the box. IIRC, this is the first set to have a painted SAW. Strangely, the weapon pod is not painted.
UNSC Weapons Pack crates
The completed set. Yes, I left the cover off the pod so you could see the weapon inside.

Summary: Of the three new weapons packs, this has the least new to offer. That said, it’s a good little set for building up UNSC weapons and the Tan Spartan makes for a good leader of your desert color UNSC troops.

Overall Rating: I give this set 8 out for 10 medals. It would have scored higher if there would have been more to the crate portion of the set. In comparison to the Forerunner and Covenant set, this one is lacking, for the same money. Toss in maybe a fern blok and a rock blok and that would have helped make up for the lack of pieces. It’s still a good set, just not as good as the other two.
