The Type-33 Guided Munitions Launcher, more commonly known as the Needler, is a Covenant infantry weapon that fires glowing, pink-blue homing projectiles capable of doing lethal damage when enough needles are in the target's body. Once seven "needles" (which is a reference to Bungie's love of the number seven) embed themselves into an enemy, they explode, killing the enemy in almost all encounters. The energy signature of this weapon is unknown.
