Halo 4 Pioneer Loadouts Tips and Strategy

The Fast Track armor mod allows Spartans to gain more experiential data from each encounter, effectively ranking up quicker during the process.

Pioneer is one of two specializations that will be available to players when they reach level 50 for the first time. If you’re planning on playing Halo 4 just for the fun of it, then go ahead and skip this specialization. However, if you’re one of the hard-core members of the Halo community and planning to play this game for all eternity, then I highly suggest that you select this specialization.

The Pioneer allows for more XP gathering. Selecting it as your first specialization means that you’ll get XP at a faster rate and hence unlock the other seven specializations faster.

Leveling up this Specialization will allow you to have the following:

  • Pioneer armor set
  • Pioneer armor set variant – torso unlocked at Pioneer – 7, shoulders at Pioneer – 8, helmet at Pioneer – 9
  • Pioneer light blue visor – unlocked at Pioneer – 6
  • Plasma Pistol Weapon Skin – unlocked at Pioneer – 4
  • Fast Track Mod – unlocked at Pioneer – 10 (this will allow you to gain 1000 XP per match)

There is no other benefit from this specialization other than ranking up. It will serve no purpose to be picked last. For more help on Halo 4 loadouts, read our Pathfinder and Stalker Loadouts.
