Asymmetrical Warfare Cell "HERALD", or Herald Team, was a squad-sized element of the Beta-5 Asymmetrical Action Group composed of SPARTAN-III Commandos and elite operatives from other unconventional warfare units within the Beta-5 Division. The unit's purpose was to test new tactics, strategies and advanced equipment in combat against the Covenant in the hope of exploiting the alien juggernaut's weaknesses.

The unit was founded by Codename: DRACULA in 2541 as part of Project INDIGO-II, incorporating the most successful HEADHUNTER pair of the first wave, Team Delta-One, as well as two fireteams of Alpha Company washouts trained as Beta-5 special warfare operators. In 2547, the unit bolstered its numbers by adding another headhunter pair – Team Echo-Two – to the roster. The unit took losses in 2550 and 2551, and was ultimately disbanded after the Fall of Reach.
