This Shade design is a custom variant in the Shade line of deployment turrets, prominently used by the Banished.

Overview[edit]

Design details[edit]

The Shade variant employed by Yapyap's forces bears a considerable visual similarity to the So'riru-pattern Shade and Mamua'uda-pattern turrets employed by the Covenant. It features an extensive layer of armor plating and a more enclosed cockpit to protect the operator.[1]

Usage[edit]

The Banished operated these Shade designs during the Second Ark Conflict in 2559. They were used by Yapyap's rebellion, and crewed with Unggoy gunners.[1]

Gameplay[edit]

The Shade Blitz card.
