The energy garrote is a weapon comprising of a small two-piece cylinder that splits apart in the middle, revealing a center of focused plasma.[1] The plasma is not powerful enough to cut through flesh, but can choke and burn an enemy from behind, resulting in a quick, silent kill. It is used mostly by Special Operations Sangheili.

An energy garrote was used by Zuka 'Zamamee to kill Rick Hale, the pilot of a Pelican, and take control of the craft to land at the human Alpha Base on Installation 04.[2]
