For almost 30 years the battle between the forces of humanity and the Convenant, an aggressive collection of alien species, has raged across the galaxy. Countless moments of bravery and danger have made heroes on both sides of the war, but above all others stand the Spartan super-soldiers and their leader: the Master Chief, John-117.
Jackal Sniper: Jackal Snipers are easily identified by their face masks that have built-in telescopic viewers. In close-combat situations they are not considered a major threat due to their more fragile nature, but don't let that fool you! They are excellent marksmen known for exceptional shooting skills and accuracy.
Spartan CQB (Khaki): Also known as the "Close Quarters Battle" Armor, the Spartan "CQB" is a varant of the MJOLNIR Mark VI armor. Specifically designed for close combat with the enemy, it has more mobile joints than the Mark VI making the wearer considerably more nimble.
Spartan Rogue (Cobalt): The Mark VI (A) "Rogue" Armor is a variant of the MJOLNIR Mark VI Armor. The most obvious visual difference between the two is the smaller visor on the "Rogue". Designed for soldiers working alone, it provides more advanced network connectivity for Intel retrieval than the Mark VI.
Elite Combat (Gold): A leading force in the Covenant Army, Elites are proud warriors. The only way to earn respect in their society is through military honor and the Elite Combat Armor provides the speed and strength required to achieve it.
