Fireteam Switchback is a team of SPARTAN-IVs.

History[edit]

In 2558 Switchback was assigned to investigate a Covenant dig site. Soon after Switchback reported the Covenant were using a Harvester and they were encountering heavy resistance and were in need of reinforcements. Fireteam Crimson was closest to their location and was sent in response.[1] When Crimson arrived they only found Switchback's blank IFF tags and heavy Covenant/Promethean resistance.[2] Later, while on a mission in the Warrens, Crimson found and freed Switchback. When questioned on Costabile's status Gale informed Commander Palmer that she had been killed by Covenant forces.[3] The four surviving members of Switchback were later evacuated by Lt. Murphy in a Pelican.
