Precision Pulse Carbine with a rapid burst interval firing mechanism.[3][4]

The Rapidfire Pulse Carbine is a modified variant of the Erudo'ma'keth-pattern pulse carbine used by the Banished.[2]


Design details[edit]

Main article: Erudo'ma'keth-pattern pulse carbine

The Rapidfire variant of the pulse carbine differs from the standard design pattern in one major way—as its name suggests, it has an increased rate-of-fire. The outer nanolaminate carapace has a silver-white coloration, as opposed to the purple of the standard pulse carbine.[2]


One such weapon was used by General Inka 'Saham, a Sangheili commanding officer in the Banished during the campaign on Installation 07 in 2559-2560.[5] During the campaign, he used the weapon in a combat encounter with John-117, though was defeated by the Spartan.[6]

In-game information[edit]

Halo Infinite[edit]

In campaign, the Rapidfire Pulse Carbine is a legendary weapon awarded to the player after defeating the High Value Target, Inka 'Saham. The weapon can be acquired at any Forward Operating Base. It exhibits a much higher rate of fire than the standard pulse rifle.[2]
