Miniature Covenant glitch

From Halopedia, the Halo wiki

The miniature Covenant glitch is a glitch that can be experienced in Halo 4 in Spartan Ops.[1] It causes the Covenant enemies to shrink to a small size. Apart from their size, they maintain the same characteristics as normal Covenant. As such, they wield normal-sized weapons and grenades, and may be assassinated. However, Jackal shields shrink along with their users. It is currently unknown what causes this glitch, and it is not mission specific.[2][3]


  • This glitch produces similar effects to the Miniature Spartan glitch
  • When an enemy is killed, it sometimes leaves a peculiar wire-like frame[4].
