The heavy plasma repeater is a type of automatic plasma cannon employed by the Covenant. The Protos-pattern Scarab sports two suspensor-mounted repeaters optimized for anti-aerospace use;[1][2] several plasma bolts from the heavy plasma repeater would bring down a D77-TC Pelican.[3]

Production notes[edit]

In Halo 2 gameplay, the heavy plasma repeater can be destroyed; after sustaining heavy damage, it will emit sparks. When destroyed, the heavy plasma repeater will split in half and eject from its mounted position.
