Kig-yar targeting headgear2view

The headgear shown from the front-right and front-left.

Kig-Yar targeting headgear is a piece of Covenant technology utilized by Kig-Yar snipers.[1] It likely provides the user with zoom and other additional targeting capabilities. However, it also places the wearer at a disadvantage, as its targeting lights can be easily seen, threatening to expose the wearer.


Halo 3 and Halo 3: ODSTEdit

In Halo 3 and Halo 3: ODST, the device is an angular piece of metal that covers only the left side of the user's face. Three small lenses protrude from the left side, presumably to aid in targeting.

Halo: ReachEdit

In Halo: Reach, the device is more curved and covers less of the user's face. In addition, a blue Covenant glyph is visible covering the right eye.

Halo 4Edit

In Halo 4, the device covers the user's entire face and has a lens in the center for targeting. Its appearance is similar to the helmet worn by Jiralhanae Stalkers.
