The Wyrd III optics suite is a smart-linked targeting system attached to the Spartan Laser. Its reticle, whether on 1x or 3x magnifications, features a meter on the right side showing the charging status of the laser. The tick mark rests at the bottom of the circular shaped reticle while the laser is dormant, and gradually travels along the reticle's circumference until it reaches the point of origin, indicating that the laser is currently discharging.
- In Anglo-Saxon culture, Wyrd is a concept analogous to fate or destiny. This is possibly a reference to the fate of anything in the reticle, since a Spartan Laser is an instant kill to most vehicles and personnel.
