MJOLNIR Powered Assault Armor/Warrior , also referred to as Warrior armor, is one of the UNSC's MJOLNIR Powered Assault Armor (GEN2) variants used by the new SPARTAN IVs. It is unlocked by reaching the rank of SR-8.
Streamlined for agility and improved reflexes, the Warrior class variant's architecture leverages intel from previous Covenant encounters to improve overall design and execution. It is typically considered the most pervasively distributed armor system currently in production.
The "Matrix" alternate skin is unlocked by completing the commendation Forerunner Loadout.
- It gives the appearance of default armor, due to it being worn by SPARTAN-IVs. However, it was later confirmed that Recruit is the default armor, with Warrior being an initial render.
- Despite being described as 'MJOLNIR's mainline kit', all the NPC S-IVs in Halo 4 wear the Recruit armor.
