Special Operations






In the Halo: Combat Evolved level, The Maw, after the bridge where you see Foe Hammer get shot down, keep to the right side of the tunnel. You will eventually see a small tunnel in the side of the wall. Go down there and you find a tunnel to your right.

You will see many Flood corpses, and one SpecOps Grunt that is still alive. He will stand there until you approach, after which he will look up and say, "Good thing that food-nipple's waiting for me at the starship 'cause man, have I worked up a big, grunty thirst!" (listen) He will say nothing else and will continue to sit there unless you melee him. In this case, he will stagger back, like meleeing a normal Grunt, or he will die. He will not attack you and will simply treat you like an ally. He is also one of the few enemies in Halo: Combat Evolved who happens to have a fully loaded Plasma Pistol.

Note that he is the only SpecOps Grunt in Halo: Combat Evolved who carries a Plasma Pistol. All others in the game carry Needlers or Fuel Rod Guns.

The Thirsty Unggoy, and the Final Unggoy are the only enemy Grunts that never shoot you. The Cowardly Unggoy of Halo 2 is actually an ally.


  • "Good thing that food nipple's waiting for me at the starship, 'cause man, have I worked up a big grunty thirst!"
  • "Bite me!" (This is a rare quote that happens if you do not kill him)
  • "Crikey!" (This is a rare quote that happens if you do not kill him)

Note: If you kill him before he says his dialogue he will sometimes re-animate to say it.


  • This Grunt is one of the three Special Dialogue Unggoy, the other two being the Final Unggoy and the Cowardly Unggoy.
  • On the old page for the Grunt water bottle at the Bungie store, the description mentions a "grunty thirst."
  • If you pick up the Grunt's Plasma Pistol and overcharge it, the green orb of energy will not appear, only the sparks do.
  • Of all three of the Special Dialogue Unggoy, this Grunt seems to be the most highly ranked Grunt.
