- “It’s not nearly as powerful as the Wraith’s cannon, and the arc is less pronounced, but the rate of fire is cranked up a few ticks...”— Bungie
The Class-2 Plasma mortar is a medium plasma mortar utilized by the Covenant Type-48 Light Assault Gun Carriage similar to that of the Type-26 Assault Gun Carriage. While charging, the plasma possesses a bluish tinge, though it is red when it is fired. The weapon has a less pronounced parabolic arc than its larger cousin but can fire once every two to five seconds.
