The Tesla Cybertruck, has constantly been in the news for a variety of reasons, ever since Elon Musk unveiled it. For starters, the company unveiled the futuristic vehicle at a promotional event in Los Angeles, and even though CEO Elon Musk claimed that the car was bulletproof, but during a test when a metal ball was thrown at one of the armoured windows of the car, the glass smashed. Despite the mishap, one cannot deny that the Cybertruck looks straight out of some sci-fi movie. So much so that ever since it was revealed gamers around the world have been comparing it to the Halo warthog, an iconic vehicle from the Halo franchise. In fact, the official Halo Twitter account even tweeted Musk about the similarities.
