Function:

Officer

 

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

Description[edit]

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.

Equipment[edit]

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.
