The Z-250 Directed Energy Engagement Weapon, informally known as The LightRifle, is a Forerunner weapon that fires beams of hard light particles. In War Games and Spartan Ops, it is available as a primary weapon loadout.


In the Halo Universe, according to 343 Industries The LightRifle was originally designed by the Forerunners as a sniper rifle. Over time, its role changed and a burst mechanism was added. During the First and Second Battle of Requiem, it was used extensively by the Promethean Knights.
