The ODST/HVY armor is a variant of the ODST armor.[1]



The HVY variant of ODST armor bears resemblance to the late war design of the armor, with a notably boxier design. The front is equipped with multiple ammunition pouches, and additionally comes equipped with an ammunition backpack and a combat knife.[2] The helmet is capable of equipping the UA and CNM helmet attachments. The armour's component pieces are capable of being employed on the Mark VI MJOLNIR platform.[3] The ODST/HVY armor is rated for vaccuum, allowing operators to perform short spacewalks on the exterior of spacecraft when needed.[4]


The ODST/HVY armor is used by troopers operating in a heavy weapons role.[1] It was employed by Victor Ramos of Fireteam Raven during the Battle of Installation 04.[2]

In-game information[edit]

Halo: Fireteam Raven[edit]

The ODST/HVY armor is worn by players playing as Victor Ramos. It confers no in-game effects.

Halo 3[edit]

As of Season 6: Raven, the ODST/HVY will be available for use as an armor permutation in the Halo 3 component of Halo: The Master Chief Collection. The helmet of the HVY variant comes equipped with the UA/HUL attachments, unlike its appearance in Fireteam Raven.
