Service history

In service:

Human-Covenant War

 

The proximity mine is a Covenant landmine. The grenade has a similar appearance to a Covenant antimatter charge.[1][2] After being set off, the mine fires a series of needler projectiles in all directions.[3]

Overview[edit]

During the Battle of Ariel, Taylor "Dutch" Miles and Kojo "Romeo" Agu threw one of these explosives at a group of Grunts. The Grunts, not realizing the device wasn't armed (Dutch and Romeo didn't know how to arm it without detonating it), panicked and fled into a corridor rigged with laser traps which sliced them to pieces.[1]

Gameplay[edit]

The Covenant proximity mine appears as an armor ability in Halo: Spartan Strike. When deployed by the player, three mines are released at a time, while enemies drop one mine. It is the default armor ability of Brute Chieftains.[3]
