"What’s that? You don’t enjoy hot metal being hurled at you from uncomfortable distances while you’re just trying to mind your own business and defend humanity? Well, too bad so sad, shouldn’t have made the Brutes mad."
Jeff Easterling[2]

The Grenflekt Workshop Meat Shredder,[1] also known as the Scrap Cannon, is a turreted weapon emplacement in service with the Banished. It saw use during the Battle for Zeta Halo in 2560.[2]

Overview[edit]

The Scrap Cannon fires spikes similar to the Paegaas Workshop Spiker, the Ukala Workshop Mangler, and the Flaktura Workshop Skewer, but at "uncomfortable" ranges. It is fully automatic, and the rate of fire increases the longer the weapon is fired.[3] As with many turreted weapons, it can be detached from its base to be fired from the hip. [2] The Scrap Cannon is wielded by Jiralhanae Chieftains including Tovarus and Escharum. The Scrap Cannon was manufactured by the Forge of Teash and developed by the Grenflekt workshop.[1]

Production notes[edit]

During the early development of Halo Infinite, the weapon was nicknamed the "gatling mortar."[2]
