Directed-energy weapon


The M6V Spartan Laser is a UNSC directed-energy weapon.[1][2] It is one of a myriad of variants of the M6 Grindell/Galilean Nonlinear Rifle, an initially exorbitantly expensive weapon which underwent several refinements and iterations to reduce its cost.[3]


Changes from M6 Spartan Laser in Halo 3 and Halo 3: ODST[edit]

  • The Spartan Laser has a slightly altered form factor, a darker color scheme, a different charging animation, and a thermal display attached to the side, which folds out when the weapon is unholstered or picked up.
  • The Spartan Laser has a longer forward grip, with less space between it and the trigger than in Halo 3, making it appear that there is not enough space for the forward grip to fold up when not in use.
  • When the weapon is charged, instead of one arrow moving down on the side of the reticule, two arrows move toward each other, meeting at the side of the reticule.
  • The charging time is now 2.5 seconds exactly.
  • The scope no longer zooms out instantly after each shot.
  • The beam can now be moved in a sweeping motion (albeit for a brief time), inflicting (reduced) damage to multiple targets.
  • The battery consumption for each shot is now increased to 25%, limiting the weapon to four shots.
