Halo 5 Special Armors Revealed, How to Unlock in Halo: The Master Chief Collection

By   /   Oct 31, 2014

343 Industries has revealed four new armor sets for Halo 5: Guardians that can only be unlocked by earning special achievements in Halo: The Master Chief Collection.

Once unlocked, these will be available for use in the upcoming Halo 5: Guardians multiplayer beta later this year, as well as in the final game scheduled for a release next year.

Note that the concept below is still “early high-res armor development” and that the “Materials [are] not representative of final in-game model.” If they don’t look more scarred now they will in the game and overall, this is just to give you an idea. The final models will be better, the developer has assured.


Technically obsolete, the Mark VI [GEN1] Mjolnir armor maintains a legendary luster among Spartans and the general public.

Spartans with Marine experience prefer NIGHTFALL armor when stationed on inhospitable worlds, due to its best-of-class life support.
