Were you looking for the BR55 Battle Rifle, used in Halo 2, or the BR55HB SR Battle Rifle, used in Halo 3?

The XBR55[1] is the first model of the BR55 line; it is described as "a prototype long barreled weapon with an optical scope."[2] The weapon fires 9.5MMx40 FMJ SAP ammunition[3] from a 60 round magazine [4] and has a range of at least 950 meters.[verification needed] It was issued to Staff Sergeants Avery J. Johnson and Nolan Byrne as well as their militia squads' marksmen, Critchley and Jenkins by Lieutenant Commander Jilan al-Cygni for use during the Harvest event during the year 2525.


  • This was the first weapon to be used against the Covenant and caused the first death of the aliens by humanity.
  • The prototype resembles the BR55HB SR much more than the standard BR55 model.
  • When Sgt. Johnson first saw the gun, it said it had a 60 round magazine, on the cover, however, it had the standard 36. Johnson may have already fired off a few shots though.
