The Shroud is a Covenant vehicle mainly used by The Banished.


The Shroud is an older Covenant vehicle given new life in the Banished army with two combat modes. It has the ability to release a persistent cloaking field when deployed, cloaking itself and nearby vehicles, but when uncloaked, it has the ability to engage a point-defense system which will attempt to destroy any enemy projectiles nearby; other than the point-defense system, the Shroud itself lacks a basic weapon system and as such, lacks any offensive capabilities. The Shroud is known for being very difficult to pilot and maneuver on its own, with tinkering by the Banished making its absurdly complex subsystems even less reliable than they were. In spite of this, Atriox spares no expense of maintaining his stock of Shrouds in his army.[1]


The Shroud is a non-combative support unit that has the ability to cloak itself and nearby units and can defend against projectiles.[2]
