There is a Major Timeline Error in the Halo Wars Promo Poster Answered

In the poster for the new game Halo Wars, try to find the mistake. I'll give you a hint: look at their guns. As many people know from reading the Halo series of books and the video games, that before the battle rifle is introduced, all but one Spartan are wiped out on Reach, or trapped inside of Onyx. You, as Master Chief, are introduced to the BR55HB SR Battle Rifle in Halo 2. The Spartans were all wiped out before Halo 1, well before the Battle Rifle is even conceived by its makers. What gives? Why would they make such a serious (to me) mistake on a widely distributed promotional product?

Yeah, Reach is the unsc gear testing ground, thats why all the cool stuff is in reach, and not even reach had anything like a hornet, they had blades. Also with energy shields, they weren't widespread yet, they were still in testing on reach the reason all this stuff is in a lot of this stuff is in halo one that was not any where else was because the chief got outfitted with the best of the best in experimental gear.

Sorry forgot a bit more info, one of the main annoyances for me in the game is the fact that the spartans have energy shields, which were stolen technology from the elites, and didnt get developed untill slightly before halo CE

Erm, there could be several explanations, if you have read contact harvest you will know that there were prototypes being tested as early 2525, meaning it is possible that some of the spartans may have been testing them during the time that halo wars is set. Also not all spartans were wiped out before halo 1, as ghosts of onyx revolves arounds events after the halo ring is activated.

yes I also know that not all spartans were wiped out before halo 1 that is why I said: "'all but one Spartan are wiped out on Reach, or trapped inside of Onyx"'

sorry I actually made a mistake on this and no, I have not read contact harvest but I have read all the other books there was an earlier model of the battle rifle that, as you said, was a prototype
