The Type-52 Pistol,[2] more commonly known as the "Mauler" is a Jiralhanae sidearm used by the Infantry and Security forces of the UAOS and the Covenant Remnants. The Type-52 Mauler is an unusual weapon exclusively used by the Jiralhanae as a handgun, although human military experts have classified it as more of a handheld shotgun than anything else. The Mauler is based on the Jiralhanae's Pre-Covenant technology, meaning it has been in use since they first learned how to create a firearm. It is an unusual design more comparable to a revolver than a shotgun with regards to its loading style; its hand grip is somewhat reminiscent of the Sangheili Energy Sword.
