Fireteam (gameplay mechanic)
From Halopedia, the Halo wiki
This article is about the gameplay mechanic in Halo: Reach. For the military unit, see Fireteam.
Fireteam is a gameplay mechanic found in Halo: Reach. With it, the player can recruit up to five UNSC Army, Militia, Marine, Air Force pilots, and ODST troopers found through the campaign. These troopers will then follow the player throughout the level, and their status is shown in the player's HUD next to the motion tracker. Each friendly combatant has a randomly assigned name and rank, which are based on Bungie staff and notable community members and are not tied to their in-game models.
