- "These should do the trick."
- — John-117 suggests using MX-8 and a Covenant plasma grenade to create a powerful explosion.
MX-8 is a form of explosive used in mining operations.
MX-8 explosives have been known to be produced to resemble the shape and size of a brick. MX-8 was used at the mining settlement known as Black Reef on the Outer Colony, Alpha Corvi II. On December 3, 2525, the Spartan-II John-117 combined a brick of MX-8 with a Covenant Type-1 plasma grenade in order to blast through three meters of rock so he and two other Spartans could rescue the fourth member of their team on the other side.
