This article is about Sangheili rank. For other uses, see Warrior.
The Sangheili Warrior class in Jul 'Mdama's Covenant is entirely made up of seasoned war veterans who survived the Human-Covenant War and did not operate in leadership positions, but took many lives. They are rarely encountered due to their relatively low numbers. Known for their powerful energy shields and usually-devastating weaponry, Warriors are considered some of the most fearsome members of Jul 'Mdama's faction. They are extremely aggressive and durable fighters, and are particularly devastating when fighting in groups.
Their armor, especially the helmet, is quite similar in appearance to that worn by Sangheili Generals in service to the Covenant; however, it is a duller shade of gold and leaves the wearer's forearms exposed. The helmet is an elaborate, accentuated design. The pauldrons use a shield-bolstering pauldron system to increase shield strength. The cuisse is of the spaded design. The greaves are high framed and are ridge-locked, with ornamental raised-claws.
Sangheili Warriors are typically armed with Vostu-pattern carbines, Type-33 Needlers, and Kelos'vaarda-pattern storm rifles. They also frequently wield Pez'tk-pattern fuel rod guns and can throw plasma grenades with a high level of accuracy. By October 2558, Sangheili Warriors began to use Mosa-pattern carbines, Type-56D needlers, Gespu-pattern fuel rod guns and Tufasumo-pattern plasma casters.
The easiest way to bring down a Sangheili Warrior is to disable its shields with an overcharged plasma pistol shot, then follow up with a precision headshot. Players can also use a binary rifle or sniper rifle to kill the Warrior in one or two shots. Active camouflage also allows players to sneak up on a Warrior and assassinate it from behind. When facing a Warrior wielding a fuel rod gun, one should always take cover and wait for it to stop shooting before returning fire.
