The M6H Personal Defense Weapon System is a M6 Series-handgun manufactured by Misriah Armory. It is an up-sized Officer's model and has a smart-linked KFA-2 ×2 scope and an electroless nickel finish.[3] It was adopted as the standard-issue personal sidearm of all branches of the UNSC by 2555.[4] In Halo 4, when using this pistol, a Spartan is able to melee, throw grenades, and switch to it much faster than other weapons, unlike other Halo games.[5]

It is seen in Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn as it was originally used as an officer's model.

Changes in the Halo 4 Weapon Tuning UpdateEdit

Main article: Weapon Tuning Update
  • The damage has been slightly increased, but still kills in six rounds.

TriviaEdit

  • It bears a slightly similar appearance to the M6G (B) from Halo: Reach, except with a larger laser sight and the lack of the iron sights. Also appears to be a more matte-gray color rather than reflective silver on the slide with red and yellow as well as the Misriah logos.
  • It shares a laser aiming device on the underside of the gun with the M6G (B). However, you cannot use it in-game.
  • In the capture the flag game mode returning in Halo 4 you can now have a pistol equipped in your right hand and carry the flag in your left hand.
  • It is the only secondary weapon in Halo 4 to have a scope.
  • In CTF, the pistol becomes stronger when the player holds the flag. Normally, it takes at least six shots to kill another Spartan with a headshot. With the Flag, the player only needs five shots to kill another Spartan with a headshot.
  • On Halo Waypoint's page for the M6G PDWS, the M6H is mentioned as having a large scope. However, in game in Halo 4, the scope only has a 2x zoom. It might not actually refer to a higher zoom but perhaps an actual larger physical scope.
