Light mass fusillade cannon

From Halopedia, the Halo wiki

A light mass fusillade cannon is a kind of weapon system employed aboard Forerunner warships.[1]



Light mass fusillades fire a mestastable form of hard light, allowing them to deal both thermal and kinetic damage to targets upon impact. In the hands of a skilled gunner, they can be used to crush, cut and scorch an enemy target with brutal efficiency.[2]


Light mass fusillades have been a staple fixture of the Forerunner fleet since time immemorial.[2] Three hundred of these weapons are part of the armament of the Sojourner-class dreadnought[1], while the Mantle's Approach employed 1,700 these such weapons.[3] The Keyship Anodyne Spirit carried one light mass fusillade as its main armament.[4]
