Kig-Yar Storm is a Kig-Yar rank in the Covenant Remnant military, filling the same role as the Kig-Yar Minor of the old Covenant Empire. This variant of Kig-Yar follows a recent trend of introduction of new Jackal species to the game, this one being somewhat crocodilian in appearance rather than avian as in previous games. They have more scaly, reptilian features than others in previous games. They now have somewhat stronger and different energy shields and carry Plasma Pistols or Covenant Carbines.
In battle, they do not tend to flee but rather hide for cover. They have much smarter battle instinces then their other Covenant species like Unggoy. Their shields are much stronger, taking much more damage before activating it back. But despite its shields strength, a overcharged plasma pistol bolt can temporaly deactivate it, giving you more chance to fire.
Killing Storm Jackals is extremely difficult as they are more sophisicated than jackals in previous games; easily taking on plasma weaponary and human weaponary. The best way to kill the jackal quickly before it recovers is to equip with a plasma pistol and a covenant carbine. First, fire the overcharged pistol bolt, deactivating the jackals shield, then blast the jackal with the carbine taking only 1-2 shots killing it.
