There are multiple things to choose from while making a loadout for Halo 4, and support upgrades is one of them. If you find Armor abilities insufficient to fulfill your requirements in the battlefield, worry not, the developer has support upgrades for you.
However, the question here is that which upgrade you should go with? Well, if you know their functions and tactical benefit, the selection task will become easier.
The following Support Upgrades can be found in Halo 4 multiplayer:
