The ODST/UA personal protective equipment (PPE), also referred to as the "close quarters" variant,[1] is a variant of the venerable ODST armor.[2]

Overview[edit]

Specifications[edit]

Main article: ODST armor

As a variant of the standard armor worn by the Orbital Drop Shock Troopers, the UA/PPE variant shares many similarities. This version of the battle armor is specifically designed to aid an ODST in CQB-type combat conditions. The standard left pauldron is replaced with a longer two-piece ballistic plate, which aids in protecting the trooper's upper body while in a firing stance, and also to reduce severe injury from plasma-based weaponry. The helmet is also issued with an optics device that aids the user in relaying images and video to teammates or command.

Usage[edit]

During the Battle of Mombasa in 2552, ODST Michael Crespo donned close quarters ODST armor outfitted with additional demolitions gear in what was expected to be a boarding action on the CAS-class assault carrier Solemn Penance.[3]

In-game information[edit]

Halo 3: ODST[edit]

Players playing as Mickey in the Halo 3: ODST level Kizingo Boulevard, or choosing Mickey as their character in Firefight, will don the ODST/UA armor. The armor confers no in-game effects.
