The UNSC Army Pathfinders are a division of the Army Airborne.[1]


The Pathfinders are deployed in advance of their comrades in order to mark drop zones, thus increasing the accuracy and precision of deployments. After the main body of the Airborne forces are deployed, the Pathfinders join the regular Airborne infantry in combat.[2]



Power Armor[]

Pathfinders prefer the FC-I variant of the Air Assault Armor.[1] They as well have a special type of visor, called Torchbearer.[3]
