From Halopedia, the Halo wiki
This article is about the model introduced in Halo 5: Guardians. For the model introduced in Halo 2, see Type-51 carbine.
The T-57 carbine is a versatile semi-automatic rifle renowned for its accuracy and long range. The weapon was used by various Covenant splinter groups after The Great Schism as a close-medium to medium-long range weapon. It fires at a maximum rate of 300 rounds per minute. Its color varies slightly from its predecessor, being a dark indigo as opposed to the T-51 Carbine's traditional purple.
The T-57B uses a streamlined manufacturing process and reactive materials in place of radioisotopes for coating projectiles. It takes 7 rounds to kill a Spartan in War Games. This variant has a holoscope. It is ranked a Common REQ in Warzone simulations, and is available at Level 2 energy while giving 50 REQ points if sold.
