"Named for their curious speech patterns, Grunts are the most numerous and sociable of the Covenant forces. These small, relatively weak infantry troops stand just over 5' tall and present little danger individually. However, a strong pack mentality means that in large numbers, as they are often encountered, Grunts present a formidable challenge. They will flank, surround and swarm any inattentive foe. Includes plasma pistol and needler."
