Unlike a grenade, this incendiary device waits for a nearby target to passby, triggering it, and catching victims in its wide blast radius.

If you spot one, approach it closely but cautiously and you can defuse it, in a process similar to that for arming a bomb or capturing a territory. In some game variations, doing so with more than one player speeds up the process.

NOTE: Information from the beta version subject to change!

This piece of deployable equipment will drain opponents' shields; as such, it's sort of an anti-bubble shield. The device is round, sort of like the bubble shield seen in early beta footage, while the bubble shield now looks more like it did in the CG TV ad. Don't get them confused, or you'll drain your own shields and make yourself a sitting duck!

NOTE: Information from the beta version subject to change!

It appears that the rocket launcher, at least in the Public Beta, has lost its ability to lock on to vehicles, and has returned to its Halo 1 configuration in that respect.

What does have the ability to lock is the new Missile Pod, another heavy weapon.

Like the portable turret, you can't zoom, drive or ride in vehicles, run, or crouch while wielding it.

In addition to deployable equipment, Halo 3 seems to have a new category of "heavy weapons" that have special characteristics.

One is a variation on the fixed turret-mounted machine guns we're familiar with from Halo 2. They can be used from a fixed position. However, pressing the B key removes the gun from its turret so you can carry it with you. In this configuration it has limited ammunition, and also enforces other limitations on you.

Shown here in its "Starry Night" television commercial version, the Shield Bubble, also sometimes erroneously called the Bubble Grenade or Shield Grenade, is a piece of equipment that can be "deployed" using the X button to form an energy barrier that protect the player temporarily from weapons fire and explosions, but not from vehicle collisions. Other players may also penetrate the barrier.

Word is that these items will be rare on the map, so don't expect to see many of them being used at once.

Updated archive information pending review by installation systems.

NOTE: As of this writing, Halo3.com does not have any text for this vehicle except for the above. This may indicate the vehicle will undergo significant changes from its Halo 2 counterpart, and perhaps those changes are not yet finalized.

The D77H-TCI Pelican is an extremely versatile craft used primarily for transportation of personnel and equipment by the UNSC. Standard armament consists of one class-three externally powered projectile weapon at the fore of the vehicle and one class-one gas operated projectile weapon mounted at the rear in the extended crew area. More heavily armed versions exist.

The Marines' fastest ground vehicle is the M274 ULTRA-LIGHT ALL-TERRAIN VEHICLE or 'Mongoose'. Essentially four wheels and an engine, this ATV can travel very fast over nearly all types of terrain.

Because it possesses no defensive or offensive capabilities whatsoever, Human troops have been known to seat weapons specialists on the rear seat to provide firepower during combat.

Warthog is a generic term for a series of UNSC ground vehicles. These light reconnaissance vehicles sacrifice technology for flexibility and reliability. The Warthog is affectionately known as the 'Hog' by UNSC soldiers.
