Halo, a video game for the Xbox, focuses on galactic combat. The warriors in Halo use high-tech guns during combat. Though the game contains many weapons, guns are the main focus. You can easily create an origami gun using two pieces of paper. To get more variety, use slightly different sizes of paper or different colours. The main character in Halo features the colours army green and orange.

    Place one of the sheets of paper on a flat surface. Fold the top half of the paper over the bottom half.

  2. 2

    Fold the top half of the folded sheet over the bottom half of the folded sheet. Fold the paper in half from top to bottom one more time for a total of three folds. The paper should be long and thin. Fold a second piece of paper using these methods. Set it aside. Call this paper "Paper 2."

  3. 3

    Fold the long, thin strip in half from left to right. Unfold the strip. There should be s thick crease in the middle of the strip.

  4. 4

    Grasp the top left corner of the strip. Fold it inward, so that it creates a diagonal edge. The fold should be about 1.5 inches thick. Do the same on the right side. The paper should look like a U.

  5. 5

    Fold the U in half so that it looks like a double L. This piece of paper is the gun's handle.

  6. 6

    Place "Paper 2" on a flat surface. Fold the paper in half, with the left side folding over the right side.

  7. 7

    Push the ends of "Paper 2" into the small pocket of the first paper. If desired, use a paper clip to make the origami extra secure.
