What Is The Repulsor?

The Repulsor is an equipment item capable of pushing back enemy grenades and equipment. When triggered, your Spartan will Infinity Gauntlet their fist and deflect rockets and explosive projectiles back towards your opponent.


That's not all, as the Repulsor also sends out a blast capable of pushing enemy soldiers and vehicles back. You can see the item in action below (via y/JuicemanJames).

How Do You Get The Repulsor?

The Repulsor can be picked up around the map. Illuminated by blue light, the item floats above various pick-up points. Luckily, the Repulsor can be used whenever you see fit, unlike previous Halo iterations where certain abilities were immediately used on the spot.


Be warned that there is a finite amount of times you can use the equipment, as shown by the number attached to your item slot.
