Out of the darkness, these blades will light our way.
The Spec-Ops forces of the Covenant originated factions (Remnant Legion and the Scouting Fleet of Generous Distribution) are some of the most deadly warriors in the galaxy. They use brilliant tactics, and always manage to bring the enemy to its knees, no matter the cost. The Spec-Ops allied with Team Heretic Dinofox and The Resistance are commanded by Xytan 'Montrumai.
Spec-Ops teams were used for many operations during the Human-Covenant War. They participated in most major ground battles. Wherever an army fails, the Spec-Ops goes in. After the Slipspace Rift Incident that brought the Scouting Fleet of Generous Distribution, the Fleet joined the fight against the Chat Empire. The most famous Spec-Ops team is the Tacit Ronin, lead by Unnamed Field Marshall and his Zealots. Other notable teams include Cloaked Missionary.
Spec-Ops soldiers are very well trained. Only the best of the best can become a Spec-Ops Soldier. The only Species observed to be part of the Covenant Spec-Ops are Sangheili and Unggoy.
Weapons and Armor Edit
Spec-Ops generally wield plasma based weapons. Sangheili have high-powered energy shield to protect them from enemy fire. Unggoy lack energy shielding, but they have the toughest armor available. Both the Sangheili and the Unggoy have Active Camoflauge. Xytan and Spec Ops Zealots wear Trollvenant Zealot Harness/Stealth Variant armor. Higher ranking Elites wield Type-1337 Energy Weapon/Swords.
Spec-Ops ranks generally favor Sangheili over Unggoy, meaning a Sangheili Spec-Ops Minor would outrank an Unggoy Ultra Major.
From lowest to highest, the ranks are as follows:
-Unggoy Spec-Ops Minor.
-Unggoy Spec-Ops Specialist/Heavy/Gunner.
-Unggoy Spec-Ops Major.
-Unggoy Spec-Ops Ultra.
-Unggoy Spec-Ops Ultra Major.
