An Ultra of the Yanme'e contingent of the Covenant is considered one of the highest military 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. Occasionally, they will command lances of low-ranking Unggoy.[1]

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. Ultras are equipped with a very weak type of energy shielding to protect them from firearms. Yanme'e Ultras are often armed with Type-25 plasma pistols, and sometimes Type-33 Needlers.[2] Ultras are equipped with anti-gravity technology that is attached to their wings that allow them to fly freely.[3]

Gameplay[edit]

These Drones are tougher than the Minors or Majors. The Ultras are equipped with energy shielding, but the shield is rather weak and can be destroyed with ease. 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.[2] A plasma pistol is effective at draining the shields of an Ultra. Once it's shields are down, automatic weapons are useful at killing the Drone.[1]
