Frankie talks Covenant "Plasma" (or the apparent lack thereof).

Frankie writes:

The good news is that the use of the word "Plasma" is a semantic employed by 26th century troops to describe the appearance of the weapons rather than their true scientific attribution. The actual technology is not plasma as we know it, but something far more dangerous, arcane and destructive.

Weird but, of course, neat. Wado steps in with a rather novel theory combining conventional explosives and time manipulating technology (which we know the Forerunner were apprently oh, so enamoured with). A slick idea.
