Project Freelancer is a Special Operations program created to study soldiers with AI implants in order to win the war with the Covenant. The main mission of Project Freelancer, as said by F.I.L.S.S., is to ensure the survival of humanity in a hostile galaxy. Freelancers are competent enough for actual conflict with the Covenant. Freelancers are set apart from their Red and Blue counterparts by their armour enhancements, artificial intelligence programs , and their proficiency in actual combat. As far as members of the Red and Blue armies are concerned, Freelancers are merely guns for the highest bidder.
