Flood containment Fireteam

From Halopedia, the Halo wiki

Flood containment Fireteams are an all-volunteer force of specialised SPARTAN-IV fireteams employed for containment of the Flood parasite. These units have seen action in the Post-Covenant War conflicts, having employed their job successfully enough that most people haven't heard of a Flood outbreak in the interim. Should a Spartan become infected with the Flood, code CORRUPTER is declared and weapons of mass destruction are deployed to contain the threat.[1] Such infected Spartans have been simulated in War Games.[2][3] It is likely that Flood containment fireteams have employed specialised anti-Flood equipment such as the Hazops Cyclops or the Hivemind armor.[4] Several VISR variants developed for the GEN2 platform were created with the Flood's potential infection in mind, with eponymously-named Flood visor being designed specifically for such teams, while the Gallows visor equips the helmet with failsafe charges for use in the event of a suit compromise.[5][6][7]
