Spartan Calhoun has a curious reverence for SPARTAN IIs, likely related to his involvement with ██████████ during the ███████████████ Massacre. Despite more advanced technologies being available, Spartan Calhoun flooded the system with repeated requests for a MK V helmet and was eventually met with approval. This is likely due to previously stated reverence. It is on record that Spartan Calhoun sees himself as filling the shoes of ██████████, hoping to do their memory service. It is also notable that during Wargames, Spartan Calhoun performs extremely poorly alone, but with men he's familiar with, even when given the option for more skilled Spartans, he performs far better, believing that comrades he knows well are superior to, "Hand picked bootlickers from Command." Spartan Calhoun often attempts to take tactical charge of a situation, is a loud proponent of acting in pairs within a group, and prior to Wargames, refers to particular Fireteam members as a number rather than by name.
Spartan Calhoun prefers standard issue weaponry over specialized weapons, often using, with curious derision towards the latter, the MA5 platform over the BR85 platform. More curiously, Spartan Calhoun accepts the phased out BR55 without question. Spartan Calhoun avoids heavy munitions such as the M57 Pilum and Hydra MLRS. Spartan Calhoun is insistent on keeping an M6 series sidearm on him when possible, and will replace his preferred MA5 with an M395 DMR. He has on record stated that he found the M392 DMR to outperform the current iteration. Spartan Calhoun also actively avoids using Covenant small arms, finding them to be unreliable, but is not averse to the use of their vehicles, most notably the Banshee, in which several kills have been recorded during this platform's operation, land and air alike.
Spartan Calhoun has taken a liking to various Covenant technologies after being assigned as one of various liaisons to the Swords of Sanghelios. He has volunteered to test the various joint technologies that the UNSC is developing, notably using the Type-51's Projection "Leaf" sight as his preferred modification on various weapons. Energy Sword use has been officially authorized following personal training from Sword-Bearer Gehlz Vheldon. Energy Sword usage has increased 200% in Warzone simulations, coinciding with prior reports of Calhoun picking up energy swords from fallen Storm Elites as "Trophies". This familiarity with Sangheili, though nefarious of intent at the time, was one of various reasons he was selected for one of the various Sangheili Liaison positions.
