Antlion is a name applied to a series of stationary artillery pieces employed by the Covenant and its remnants.[1][2] These turrets are also colloquially known as "mega-turrets", due to their size and power.[3][4]


Antlion turrets are static structures, with a single massive siege plasma mortar mounted atop. They fire in bursts of three, launching powerful plasma strikes across long distances.[3]


There are two primary Antlion variants in use.
