Warrior is a class of Sangheili combatants serving in the Covenant[1] and its remnants.[2][3]

Overview[edit]

The Sangheili Warrior class in Jul 'Mdama's Covenant is entirely made up of seasoned war veterans who survived the last Human-Covenant War, that did not operate in a leadership position, but took many lives. Due to this, they are rarely encountered due to their low numbers.[4] Known for their powerful energy shields and usually-devastating weaponry, Warriors are considered some of the most fearsome members in the new Covenant order.[3] They are extremely aggressive and durable fighters, and are particularly devastating when fighting in groups.

Equipment[edit]

Armor[edit]

Warriors wear golden armor with green highlights, denoting their status as field commanders.[5] In Warzone this harness is often colored maroon.

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.[4]

Weaponry[edit]

Sangheili Warriors are typically armed with Type-51 carbines, Type-33 Needlers, and Type-55 storm rifles. They also frequently wield Type-33 fuel rod guns and can throw plasma grenades with a high level of accuracy. By October 2558, Sangheili Warriors began to use Type-57B carbines, Type-56D Needlers, Type-58 fuel rod cannons and Type-53 Plasma Casters.[6]

Tactics[edit]

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.
