ATHLON-class Mjolnir is a variant of the GEN2 MJOLNIR powered armor manufactured by Misriah Armory


It contains multiple layers of redundant safety systems to reduce the chance of injury in War Games excersies.[1]

The Athlon helmet features an inner layer with a magnetorheological dampening system specifically crafted for Spartan physiology.[1]

Development history[edit]

Developed by Misriah Armory, it is much sleeker than most MJOLNIR variants, reminiscent of the series' Contoured-pattern gauntlets and greaves.[2]


The armor is used during live-fire War Games exercises.[1]

Spartan Lucy-B091 used this armor in 2558. Tom-B292 also used the legs and torso of Athlon armor.[3]


  • Champion: Athlon Champion is rebuilt and returned version of the default Athlon armor. It is a temperamental creation that requires a full team of technicians on hand to repair and retune the suit between each War Games match for optimal performance.[1]

The Athlon suit was first shown in the Halo 5: Guardians Multiplayer Beta announcement trailer. The permutation is part of Breakout, a new game mode in Halo 5: Guardians.[4] Athlos is a Greek word meaning ″contest″ (eg; triathalon and the root of the word "athlete") and alludes to the E-sports-oriented nature of Breakout.
