Sorry, when did the Flood ever use a Brute Shot? --IP:

They never did, thankfully --Doomguy0505 09:21, 10 November 2006 (UTC)

That would be devestating. —This unsigned comment is made by Sangheili (talkcontribs) . Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

In Halo 3 on Normal difficulties and above the Flood use Brute Shots, at least on Floodgate--Force Colonel Valhala 112 22:01, 1 June 2008 (UTC)

Humans Using Brute Shot[]

I probably should have said something here first but I remember heard about Human(Marines) being able to use the Brute Shot on Legendary Difficult in Halo 2. Is this correct?James-001 03:58, 20 February 2007 (UTC)

Nope. Only Elites, Spartans and Brutes can use the gun. -The Dark Lord Azathoth 12:12, 18 August 2007 (UTC)

Size Issue[]


According to the weapons chart the Brute Shot is 184cm (Just over 6 feet for you Americans) which is higher then the average human

Looking at the image Image:Trouble.jpg, it looks like the Brute Shot is taller that the marine. how big is this thing anyways? Even though the Spartans are much taller than the standard marine, the weapon is still huge.James-001 04:05, 20 February 2007 (UTC)

Master Chief Takes on Brute

But keep in mind that most of the weapon is the just the blade and that little wire thing at the end. -- Esemono 11:28, 20 February 2007 (UTC)

    thanks for clearing that up for me.--James-001 22:17, 20 February 2007 (UTC)


I've removed the note on the page saying that it was also known as the "Type-25 Grenade Launcher", as I don't think the ONI designation has ever been officially stated by Bungie. But if it has and I missed it, feel free to point it out.

Its never ever been said, the Spiker, Flame Grenade and the Spike grenade are the only covenant weapons to have ever been given a designation. --Ajax 013 14:25, 18 August 2007 (UTC)

First seen in first strike?[]

They mention brutes carrying a kind of bladed weapon in Contact:Harvest. Is this something completely different from that? ~ 05:33, 29 December 2007 (UTC)

Tactics Demonstration[]

Hi, I started a tactics demo video - and inviting everyone who as a relevant clip to upload it and add it to the rough cut. I think it that a visual demonstration can really improve this article. AndreaVela 13:05, 14 February 2008 (UTC)

I have a question. What's the narrow metal bar that protrudes from under the barrel? It looks almost like a... I dunno, a crowbar? Also, below that, it looks like there's a sort of handle running parallel to the barrel. Or am I wrong?

umm i think it's easier for holding the gun. idk either but it would make logic for it to be easier for storage + handleing James the halo master 03:04, June 24, 2010 (UTC)

Halo Reach[]

Does anybody know why the Brute Shot did not return in Halo: Reach?

Maybe Thel Vadamee didn't allow them to wield it.

They had the Type-50 Directed Energy Rifle/Heavy instead. Karl-591 (Talk) (Contribs)Leave your message after the boom.
