"They're not breaking. Why aren't they breaking?"
Grimoire description [1]

Centurions are the field commanders of the Cabal, serving as tactical commanders and are highly skilled in the use of the formidable array of combat electronics and deployable munitions fitted on their heavy armor.[2]



Centurions back up Legionnaires in battle [3] and their talent for destruction is enhanced by their heavy weapons and armor. [4] They stay mobile thanks to jump jets that blast them across the battlefield and can be distinguished by different types of armor based on class.[5]


As the lead unit in a standard group of Cabal soldiers, Centurions should be eliminated quickly. Armed with a deadly Projection Rifle, an analogue of a grenade launcher, they relentlessly bombard the position Guardians with highly-explosive grenades at any distance. The grenades they fire have a high velocity, so dodging them can be a challenge. In addition, a Centurion's armor is embedded with a Solar shield, improving their overall durability. In conjunction with their deadly firepower, they are also surprisingly mobile due to their jump jets, which they use repeatedly to reposition themselves and find a different firing points so they can continue to pound Guardians with their Projection Rifles.[6]

Destiny 2[edit]

In Destiny 2, Centurions gain the ability to hover with their jetpacks, using the height advantage to bombard Guardians with their Cabal Bronto Cannon. While hovering, they may strafe to evade incoming fire. Like Legionaries, they are able to deploy a wrist-mounted sword to make melee attacks.[7]
