Etilka was a slightly modified M247H Heavy Machine Gun. It was the personal weapon of Jorge-052.[2]

Operational HistoryEdit

Etilka had been used in the last few missions of Jorge's life. He utilized it during the Battle of Fumirole[3] and would also carry it into battle at Visegrád,[4] Sword Base,[5] Szurdok Ridge,[6] and finally at Farkas Lake and on the Ardent Prayer during Operation: UPPERCUT. It was lost when Jorge activated a makeshift slipspace bomb that consumed Ardent Prayer.[7]


The main difference between Etilka and standard M247H is the lack of its square blast shield; instead, a heat shield is placed over the barrel. It also has a two faint yellow stripes along the barrel. Other than that, it functions very similar to the standard M247H.


  • "Etilka" is a female name of Hungarian origin which translates to "noble", a nod to Jorge's squad.[8]
  • The gun was left in the files of Halo 4 and acted as the physical model of the "Hunter LMG." It is only usable with mods.[9]
  • A recreation of Etilka is available in Warzone in Halo 5: Guardians. It behaves similarly to the standard chaingun turret, however is loaded with a high-capacity magazine containing 200 rounds. Players wielding Etilka also get a speed boost, damage boost and increased damage resistance.[2]
