Production overview

Manufacturer(s):

Materials Group[1][2]

Type:

Mjolnir [GEN2][1][2]

 

The DECIMATOR-class Mjolnir is a MJOLNIR armor variant designed by the Materials Group.[1][2]

Overview[edit]

Design details[edit]

The DECIMATOR is the closest GEN2 armor variant to the MJOLNIR Mark VII,[3] and features a versatile energy shielding system that can be partially reshaped and sculpted.[1][2] Like the Mark VII suit worn by Naomi-010, DECIMATOR's physical architecture closely resembles MJOLNIR Mark V [B].

Development history[edit]

The DECIMATOR-class Mjolnir is an attempt by the Office of Naval Intelligence's Materials Group to re-engineer major improvements of the Mjolnir Mark VII prototypes into the second generation of the MJOLNIR Powered Assault Armor. The most successful of these efforts is the DECIMATOR armor's sophisticated energy shielding system.[1][2] Elements from DECIMATOR would later go on to be used in Project KEYSTONE.[4]

Usage[edit]

DECIMATOR is mostly unknown outside the Spartan branch,[5] with even few Spartan or UNICOM commanders privy to the full details of the armor's development history.[1][2]

In-game Information[edit]

Decimator was first introduced as an armor set in the Hammer Storm update for Halo 5: Guardians. The suit has no skin variants.
