FOB November is a UNSC Forward Operating Base (FOB) on the fragment sections of Installation 07 during the Battle for Zeta Halo.[1]

Operational history[edit]

Following the Banished's ambush on the UNSC Infinity upon its arrival at Installation 07 on December 12, 2559, UNSC forces made landfall on the ring.[2] While many survivors at the fragmented section of the ring gathered at the wreckage of the Mulsanne-class light frigate UNSC Mortal Reverie as a base of operations,[3] they also established Forward Operating Bases in nearby locations.[4] FOB November was located deep within Banished territory, with the Banished outpost Riven Gate to its west.[1]

By March 3, 2560, FOB November was in Banished control,[4] with the Banished adding their own equipment and troops around the FOB.[1] The FOB was also connected to the Banished battle network protocol,[5] tracking nearby UNSC and Banished activity.[6] At some point after Master Chief Petty Officer John-117 was retrieved by Fernando Esparza onboard Echo 216 on May 28,[7] Arch Khordat Barroth spotted the Spartan in vicinity of FOB November; however, the Kig-Yar did not notify his allies at the FOB, nor did he plan to interfere if the Spartan attempts to retake the FOB.[8] Later, John-117 eliminated the Banished forces at the FOB and deployed his artificial intelligence known as the Weapon at the FOB's terminal.[1] The Weapon removed the FOB from the Banished network, returning it to UNSC control,[6] and marked the nearby locations of interest on John-117's TACMAP.[1]


"FOB capture complete, Chief. For most of the war, this was about as deep in Banished territory as the UNSC could reach. Can you imagine what it was like? Trying to protect this FOB from the Banished? So many lives sacrificed."
— The Weapon to John-117 after capturing the FOB.

FOB November becomes available in the "Reformation" section of the Halo Infinite campaign.
