Design details[edit]

Main article: Banished Wraith

The Ironclad is a variant of the Eklon'Dal Workshop Wraith. It is equipped with the scorch plasma mortar, which launches a superheated bolt that leaves boiling plasma on the ground after detonation. The Ironclad is also equipped with energy shielding.[2] The Ironclad also has more armour plating than standard Banished Wraiths and ramming spikes on the fore of the vehicle.[1]


The Ironclad is a unit available for play in the Blitz and Blitz Firefight modes of Halo Wars 2. It is available to all Banished leaders. The Ironclad Wraith Blitz card has the following attributes;

  • Rarity: Rare
  • Cost to deploy: Blitz Energy 140
  • Guard: This unit covers nearby allies, receiving all damage they would normally take.
  • Shield: This unit has energy shield protection that absorbs damage and regenerates when out of combat.

The Ironclad is classed as a main battle tank, and performs well against infantry, vehicles and aircraft. If this unit is in fatal/sever condition, if this unit is guarding another unit while it's be healed, this unit will also receive healing regardless if the unit it's guarding is full health or not.
