Assault attachments

From Halopedia, the Halo wiki

This article is about the Mjolnir supplemental configurations. For the Sangheili harness, see Assault harness.

Assault is a category of supplemental webbing configurations, typically designed for use with the MJOLNIR Powered Assault Armor in close to medium distance combat.[1]


Design details[edit]

The Assault category commonly includes various pieces of chest- and wrist-mounted ammunition-carrying equipment compatible with MJOLNIR Mark V.[1]


Spartan-IIIs from NOBLE Team have been observed to employ Assault configurations. Carter-A259 employed the Assault/Commando chest configuration, while Emile-A239 employed the Assault/Sapper chest configuration as well as the Assault/Breacher wrist attachment. After the Human-Covenant War, the WRATH-class Mjolnir, being a partial recreation of Emile-A239's customized armor,[2] also featured the Assault/Breacher wrist attachment.[3]

In-game information[edit]

Halo: Reach[edit]

All Assault 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 Assault armor types are attainable in the Season 1: Noble progression system.

Halo 5: Guardians[edit]

The Assault/Breacher wrist attachment is built into the WRATH-class Mjolnir, unlockable in armor customization through the Requisition system.[3]

Production notes[edit]

  • A sapper (the namesake of Assault/Sapper) is a combat engineer.[4]
  • During the Halo: Reach Multiplayer Beta, the Assault/Commando chest piece was designated Assault/CQC as a part of the CQC armor set. In the final game, the chest piece was renamed as Assault/Commando, with no replacement for a CQC chest piece being made.
