The Z-520 Encounter-Mitigation System, more commonly known as the Splinter Turret, is a Promethean heavy weapon featured in Halo 5: Guardians. Upon impact, its projectiles explode outwards into several smaller explosive projectiles, giving the weapon its colloquial name. It was employed by Prometheans in conflicts after the Requiem Campaign. As support weapons, picking up the Splinter Turret would result in a lack of mobility.
The turret, like the human equivalent features a shield on the barrel of the gun, albeit made of hardlight. The turret fires a single hardlight round, that explodes on impact and splinters into smaller explosions, making it an extremely lethal weapon.
