The Zaagokelu Workshop Scout Bike is a light scout vehicle used by the Banished. It is a part of the Ghost series of scout bikes.[1]


Design details[edit]

The Zaagokelu design was one of the first models of Ghost developed for use within the Banished fleet,[1] though over time has since come to be exclusively used by forces led by Shipmaster Let 'Volir[2] - with the Riuctda Workshop Ghost having supplanted it as the foremost Ghost model used among the Banished.[1] It is subject to a massive up-armour upgrade that allow it increased resilience in the field, with an optional energy shielding module available to further boost the Zaagokelu's damage resistance.[1]

The Zaagokelu Ghost was initially designed by the Zaagokelu Workshop and manufactured by the Armory of Gethrog,[1] though can be additionally manufactured at any Banished Foundry deployed in the Banished's occupation Outposts.[3]

Operational history[edit]

In March 2559, the Banished used their own modified version of the Ghost with energy shielding during operations against the crew of UNSC Spirit of Fire during the Second Ark Conflict.[4]

In Halo Wars 2 the Ghost is a unit exclusive to Shipmaster Let 'Volir and Ripa 'Moramee. Like its Halo Wars counterpart, it can be upgraded to have energy shielding and can be used to gather resources. Being cheap scout units, Ghosts only do okay against infantry and vehicles and perform poorly against aircraft and structures. It costs 30 resources in Blitz.

Exclusively used by the Shipmaster for their speed and firepower, Ghosts are single-occupant anti-grav speeders armed with twin plasma cannons and the ram ability to decimate enemy infantry squads. Ghosts can also negate control over resource nodes. With the ghost shield upgrade the Ghost becomes a significantly more durable and effective high-speed raider.

The Ghost is one of the most recognizable and ubiquitous vehicles on the battlefield. It is less armored than its Brute counterpart, the Chopper, but this sacrifice grants it nearly unmatched speed. This speed makes it useful for harassing and hit-and-run tactics on the field.
