This article is about the siege vehicle. For other articles including "Kodiak", see Kodiak (disambiguation).
Kodiaks were used by the United Nations Space Command during the Human-Covenant War. In 2557, a couple of them were collected by Ram Chalva's salvage crew from beneath the glassed surface of Mesa. During the Carrow Conflict in September 2558, the Surakan Militia Volunteers used multiple Kodiaks against Hekabe's forces. In April 2559, Kodiaks saw action on Installation 00 during the fight between the UNSC Spirit of Fire and the Banished.
Halo Wars 2
In Halo Wars 2 Kodiaks can be built by all UNSC leaders at the UNSC Garage. Kodiaks are effective against infantry, vehicles, and structures while deployed. They are only able to attack aircraft when not deployed and perform poorly against them. Due to the range of the Kodiak's artillery attack, a spotter is required to designate targets for the cannon. If the player picks Anders as their leader, the Kodiak's shells get an upgrade through the Sentinel Beacon Leader Power, which allows the shells landing to summon a Sentinel to encircle an area. If the player picks Serina as a Leader, the Kodiak can be upgraded with Cryo Shells through Cryotech Advances Leader Power, allowing the shells to give a chill effect to the area around it.
The Kodiak is a favored unit for the UNSC, especially in Firefight modes, since it is the only unit that can suppress any incoming ground unit from a long range.
