SSgt Avery Johnson, UNSC Marine Corps

Shooting glasses worn by Staff Sergeant Avery Johnson during the Battle of Harvest.

Shooting Glasses are orange tinted glasses that were developed by ONI.[1] They are military equipment meant to be worn by Marines on the battlefield. They offer no optical magnification, but in the upper corner of the left lens is a small HUD.[2] The glasses provided the ground troops protection from foreign objects that could cause damage to the eye. The tint of the glasses also provided protection from the effects of direct sunlight on the eyes.

Shooting glasses were included in Lieutenant Commander al-Cygni's ONI weapons cache. These glasses were used in 2525 by Avery Johnson and Nolan Byrne during the First Battle of Harvest.

Shooting glasses may or may not be similar to the glasses worn by Dr. Catherine Halsey, which also possess similar technology.[3]
