Freebooters are Kig-Yar infantry units hired in service of the Banished.

Overview[edit]

Freebooters perform the same role in the Banished as Kig-Yar Minors did in the Covenant, serving as basic infantry, scouts, and guards. Typically, a Jiralhanae or Sangheili officer will lead a squad of Freebooters.

History[edit]

Numerous Kig-Yar Freebooters fought for the Banished on Zeta Halo during the Battle for Zeta Halo.

Weapons and equipment[edit]

Freebooters are equipped with the Kig-Yar's signature handheld shields, and are usually armed with plasma pistols and Needlers.

Trivia[edit]

  • Freebooter is another word for pirate.
  • Strangely, Kig-Yar Freebooters are not affected by the Thunderstorm skull, and will not turn into Kig-Yar Raiders when it is active.
