Looking for the Resupply Canister, the UNSC's equivalent of the Covenant supply case?
The Covenant Supply Case has appeared throughout Halo SPV3 as a device that stored the weapons for Covenant encampments. It can hold four hand-held sized weapons, or two larger weapons. It has been speculated that it also acts as a device to recharge plasma based weaponry, as all weapons found in it have been fully charged, but this may just be circumstantial. Further evidence for it just being circumstancial is that the Covenant Charging Stations charge all plasma based weaponry.
These crates are used by the Covenant much like the Gun Shelves in the armory in the Pillar of Autumn. On Installation 04, the more prepared Covenant have these crates locked from human activities. Although in some areas, such as those deep in Covenant areas, some of these containers are left open. They carry any Covenant weapon and it is widely thought that the Covenant have a recharge device on these crates making them essential for operations. Although Covenant Charging Stations are more convenient. Others think that they are simply used to supply Covenant ground forces with weaponry. The crates are nearly identical to the early Covenant Communication Nodes, and are possibly modified Supply Cases.
Common weapons held by Covenant Weapon Holders include, but are not limited to: Plasma Rifles, Brute Plasma Rifles, Shredders, Particle Carbines, Plasma Pistols, Brute Shots, and Needlers.
- Height: 1.82 metres (6.0 ft)
- In Halo: Combat Evolved, the supply cases could not be moved, as they are considered scenery objects. If a player rammed into it with a Warthog or threw grenades at it, it would stay in place, unmoved. They can be moved, however, if you make them as vehicles in Halo Custom Edition. Also, they do not hold weapons in Halo CE.
- They can have differet colors, although it is unkown if this is significant or not
