Arrow of Time is a specialised variant of the SRS99-S5 AM sniper rifle developed by Misriah Armory.[6]


Design details[edit]

Main article: SRS99-S5 AM sniper rifle

Outwardly, Arrow of Time bears few visual differences from the standard Series 5 sniper rifle; its most prominent change is a series of white, red-and-green stripes painted atop the body of the weapon alongside a decal of an eagle's head on the stock.[7] The weapon's performance characteristics are slightly different from the standard Series 5; the weapon has an extended magazine, increased recoil, but features a heavy-duty cyberlink on its Oracle-R scope that prevents the weapon from de-scoping when the operator is fired upon.[6]


In late 2558, Spartan-IVs serving aboard the UNSC Infinity trained with the Arrow of Time in War Games simulations.[7]
