Ordnance is a feature in the War Games of Halo 4. In certain game types, the player is able to call in a supply drop—called "ordnance"—once they have accumulated enough points. With this drop, the player is able to choose between three randomized options: typically a power weapon, a type of grenade, or a "boost". Once chosen, the ordnance will drop from the Infinity and land at the designated spot; if indoors, it will teleport in. The old spawning mechanic, where weapons and powerups were placed on the map, was replaced with "static ordnance", a supply drop spawning at the beginning of the match and at regular intervals. These static ordnances remain the same gameplay-wise to their older counterpart. Drop pods are capable of killing the user and other Spartans (whether friend or foe) if it lands directly on top of them.
