Weapons (The Covenant) Halo 3 Guide

Last update: Wednesday, May 11, 2016

Plasma Pistol

Effectiveness: Low.

Plasma Rifle

Effectiveness: High, as in the previous Halo titles. This time though you can use it against the Flood.


Effectiveness: Low. It was useful in past Halos but now it cannot stay on par with other, more effective weapons.

Fuel Rod Gun

Effectiveness: High. This is an equivalent of a Rocket Launcher, but it has more firepower. It's good for destroying almost everything except fast vehicles (like Ghost).

Brute Shot

Effectiveness: High, but you can do well without it. Other weapons are also very effective in hand-to-hand combat, so Brute Shot blade isn't your best option anymore.


Effectiveness: Very high. This weapon has changed the same way Battle Rifle has . Now it's one of the best weapons in the whole game. The worst enemy of Brutes' head.

Energy Sword

Effectiveness: High, but it's not as necessary in campaign, as in past Halo games.

Sentinel Beam

Effectiveness: Not a common weapon and less useful than in the past.


Effectiveness: High. When you're out of Battle Rifle ammo, get a Spiker and it will do nicely.


Effectiveness: Medium. Very interesting weapon, powerful but only at short range.

Gravity Hammer

Effectiveness: Medium. Special weapon used only by Brute leaders. It's a melee weapon so it's relatively useless in campaign.

Beam Rifle

Effectiveness: Very high. Alien equivalent of a sniper rifle.
