Handheld, single-handed sword
A Bloodblade[Note 1] is the name provided to red colored fireblades used by the Covenant and its remnants.
Bloodblades are not exclusive to a specific pattern of fireblade, as they have been seen as Meluth'qelos-pattern fireblades, Pelosus-pattern fireblades, and two unidentified patterns.
Bloodblades were used by some Special Operations Sangheili such as the Silent Shadow with one of their earliest known uses being during the Battle of Algolis, during the Human-Covenant War, at the attempted execution of Atriox. They were also seen in the defense of a Covenant moon base.
They were also sometimes used in the UNSC's War Games simulator, for example in Infection sessions.
Bloodblades were also in use with the Banished, with one being in the possession of Jega 'Rdomnai during the Battle for Zeta Halo in 2560.
The Bloodblade is used by zombies in Halo 2: Anniversary's Infection mode.
It can also be used in the campaign of Halo Infinite after Jega 'Rdomnai's defeat. It provides additional stat boosts even greater than that of Okro 'Vagaduun's Duelist sword.
