This article is about the Hydra model featured in Halo Infinite. For other uses of the word Hydra, see Hydra (disambiguation).
The Multiple Launch Rocket System-2 Hydra (MLRS-2 Hydra), commonly known simply as the Hydra, is a weapon employed by the United Nations Space Command as part of the "Hydra" line of weapons manufactured by Chalybs Defense Solutions. The weapon succeeds the previous MLRS-1 model.
It uses gyroscopically stabilized, high-explosive micro-missiles capable of locking onto enemy targets similar to the Covenant's Kopasa'mada-pattern plasma launcher. Warnings on the body of the MLRS-2 Hydra recommend using only approved UNSC munitions.
MLRS-2 Hydra units are either tested or manufactured at the Seattle Complex, United Republic of North America. Succeeding the MLRS-1 model, the MLRS-2 was in use by UNSC forces by 2559. In this time, it was employed during the Battle for Zeta Halo. While fighting the Master Chief, the Jiralhanae Warlord Tremonius used a Hydra against the Spartan.
