It is also effective against Goblins, although players in Wraiths should be more careful due to the Goblins' powerful anti-vehicle attacks.
Warzone and Arena feature four upgraded variants of the Wraith:
Sword Wraith: an improved Wraith with better armor. It is also featured in the eighth campaign mission Swords of Sanghelios.
Ultra Wraith: a superior Wraith with heavy armor and an upgraded plasma mortar that leaves behind explosive submunitions in a similar manner to the Incineration Cannon from Halo 4, but the shots are capable of pulling themselves towards the target and do not ricochet. It also appears in the campaign mission Genesis.
The Ultra Wraith is especially useful against the three Warden Eternal bosses in the mission.
Temple Wraith: a masterwork Wraith with the same armor as the Ultra Wraith but with improved handling, faster speed, longer boost drive duration, and a faster firing rate for the plasma mortar.
Each upgraded variant of the Wraith can be used for more aggressive engagements.
