The Z-130 Directed Energy Automatic Weapon,[2] more commonly known as the Suppressor, is a Promethean Forerunner weapon. It fires bolts of charged hard light that pierce and destroy any organic material. Its rapid firing rate made it a favorite of Forerunner troops against the Flood during the Forerunner-Flood war. It is more effective at closer ranges compared to its Human and Covenant counterparts, the Assault Rifle and the Storm Rifle.

Gameplay

Advantages

  • The Suppressor has a higher rate of fire than the Assault Rifle, giving it a faster potential kill time.
  • The Suppressor has a large magazine and can fire for a relatively long time before needing a reload.
  • The Suppressor has a quick reload speed.

Disadvantages

  • The Suppressor has a very large bullet spread, making it very inaccurate at any target further away than a few meters.
  • The Suppressor's projectile speed is very slow, forcing you to aim ahead of a target when shooting from a distance.
  • Each projectile does less damage than the other automatic weapons.

Changes in the Halo 4 Weapon Tuning Update

Main article: Weapon Tuning Update
  • Capable of killing in three less rounds.[3]
  • Auto-aim angle has been reduced.[3]
  • Projectile spread has been decreased.[3]

Changes from Halo 4 to Halo 5: Guardians

  • Magazine now holds 42 rounds instead of 48.
  • Slower rate of fire, but fire rate speeds up as long as the trigger is held.
  • Projectile now track towards the enemy.
  • Weapon slowly comes apart after prolonged firing.

Trivia

  • The marks left from shooting a surface are extremely well-defined hexagons.
  • It takes 12 shots to strip the shields of a SPARTAN-IV and 7 more shots to kill.
