UA, short for up-armor, is a series of supplemental armor attachments and accessories compatible with the MJOLNIR Powered Assault Armor. Like some other MJOLNIR variants, many of the UA pieces are not exclusive to the MJOLNIR system, but are in use by regular UNSC Army or Marine troops as well.[1]

In-game information[edit]

Halo 3 MCC[edit]

The UA attachment is built into the ODST armor/HVY armor, unlockable in armor customization in the Season 6: Raven progression system.

Halo: Reach[edit]

All UA variants of armor types can be unlocked in the Halo: Reach's Armory through the game's purchase system via the use of cR. In Halo: The Master Chief Collection, the UA variants of armor types are attainable in the Season 1: Noble progression system.

Helmets[edit]

Most of the helmet variants available in Halo: Reach have an up-armored upgrade, sometimes coupled with other external helmet additions, such as the UA/HUL attachment to the Mark V [B] helmet. UA helmet attachments consist of reinforced metal plates or bracers attached to the helmet's forehead to give better protection to the wearer in combat.[2]

Trivia[edit]

  • The UA/Multi-Threat appeared in the Beta as the ASSAULT/SCOUT, this version did not include a belt. Likewise the UA/Base Security [W] appeared as the MP/BASE SECURITY which also did not include a belt. The belt-less versions remained in the files of Halo: Reach, but went unused.
  • The UA/BUCKLER is named after a small hand-held shield from the middle ages of the same name.
  • The UA/CHOBHAM is named after the composite tank armor of the same name.
