An Ultra of the Yanme'e contingent of the Covenant is considered one of the highest infantry ranks for the species.


One of the higher Yanme'e ranks in the Covenant military, Ultras are often in command of lower-ranking Yanme'e, like the Majors or Minors.


Yanme'e Ultras are distinguished by their blue and cyan exoskeletons, along with paired forked horn-like structures on their head and cephalothorax. Yanme'e Ultras are often armed with Type-25 plasma pistols, and sometimes Type-33 Needlers.[1] Ultras are equipped with anti-gravity technology that is attached to their wings that allow them to fly freely.[2] Some Yanme'e may instead be distinguished by the presence of a silver-white exoskeleton and a yellow-hued set of antigravity emitters..[3]

In-game information[edit]

Halo 3: ODST[edit]

In Halo 3: ODST, Ultras are classed as a Yanme'e infantry rank alongside those of the Minor and Major. In Firefight, Ultras spawn roughly once for every three Majors spawned, or every five Minors.

Halo: Reach[edit]

These Drones are tougher than the Minors or Majors. Unlike most lower-ranking Drones, Yanme'e Ultras often land on the ground when engaged in combat, making them an easier target. In Halo: Reach, using the Thunderstorm skull causes all Drones to either spawn as the Major or Ultra rank.[1] Automatic weapons are useful at killing the Drone.
