From Halopedia, the Halo wiki
M29 rockets are the primary ordnance for the M57 Pilum series of rocket launchers in UNSC service. They are typically loaded into the rocket in disposable two-rocket box magazines, and are typically used to counter enemy vehicles and Promethean Knights.
While the HEMP is the standard warhead for the missile, there are other specialist options available. These including thermobaric incendiary warheads, and Dumb AI-driven "brilliant" guidance systems. When used on select variants of the launcher such as the "Ad Victoriam", M29 missiles can be laser guided by the operator's smart-link. The Ad Victoriam additionally stocks its rockets in such a way that three are fired with one trigger pull, and launched in a "V" formation.
