Storm was an infrequent specialist combat role for Kig-Yar serving in the Covenant, and later became widespread among the various Covenant remnants, acting as shock troopers.[1][2][3]

Description[edit]

While Kig-Yar Storm were shock troops in the original Covenant, post-war they fill virtually the same role as Kig-Yar Minors.

Equipment[edit]

The Kig-Yar Storm combat harness can be found in red, turquoise, and orange. Their Kig-Yar point defense gauntlets are purple. During the Battle of Requiem and the Requiem Campaign Kig-Yar Storm commonly fielded Type-25 plasma pistols and Type-33 needlers,[4] while sometimes using Vostu-pattern carbines.[5] By October 2558, Storm units had switched to the Type-54D plasma pistol and Type-56D needler as their primary weapons.[6]

Gameplay[edit]

Kig-Yar Storm are relatively easy to defeat by using a precision weapon such as the Vostu-pattern carbine or the M395 DMR to aim between the gaps in their point defense gauntlets. They can also be easily brought down using an overcharged Type-25 plasma pistol shot to the shield, followed by a precision headshot. At close range, they can be killed with one or two melee strikes.
