So, what's everyone going to be rocking at launch? Also this is the thread for all future armory stuff. If anything new gets revealed, drop it in here for all to see.

Personally, I'll be sporting the HazOp w/ breathing apparatus, CQB chest piece, fifth shoulder option for both shoulders, first wrist option, second thigh, blue tint visor with the third knee-guards. Jorge for Firefight voice because of dat accent.

As far as the visual flair goes, hopefully the one that just says "Halo"(by playing all the previous games online). Update: As long as you have played Halo 2 online at least once with your current Gamertag, you're set for the emblem. Playing on the last day is NOT required.

Honestly man, the standard Mark V b stuff looks awesome to me. I'll probably do some different shoulders, but overall I like the look. I'm really curious what other stuff in there that we don't know about. In terms of the nameplate emblem, I should be able to rock the Halo for having played all the previous games online including Halo PC.

urk confirmed that as long as you have a Halo 2 game on your gamertag, you're set. Not required to play on the last day, thankfully. As such, I'll be wearing that one too.

As far as armor, who knows how long you'll have to wait to unlock Mark V? Seeing as it isn't in the default armory, I imagine that it might take a while. What do you plan on wearing up until then?

I'd just wear whatever I have that looks good at the time. That's more of a decision I'd make when I get the game and I'm tinkering with all the settings. None of the armor variants shown really stand out and make me say "omg I gotta wear this."

I agree, for the most part. HazOp is the only one that really pokes out at me from the ones that have been shown.

But when you think about it, that's just what's there at the start, I can't imagine how much stuff that's going to be unlockable or added in later. It's crazy to think about.

ODST helmet or Jorge's helmet. I can't quite decide yet. Big bulky shoulders.

Which is the helmet that Carter wears? Sometimes I think it's the Hazop one in the list Bungie put out, but then it looks slightly different to me.

Someone please clear this up for me if you happen to know. If you're using an armor effect is it always on even in multiplayer? That may get distracting and very annoying if everyone is running around with flames on their head, grunt birthday party, and the constant lightning bolts going across their body. Hopefully it will at least turn-off in matchmaking but when I think about it the flaming head didn't turn off in matchmaking in H3 so I don't know why any armor effects would.

When I first think about it, it comes across as really annoying and distracting. But upon further thought, it should make them more obvious targets, right? So hey, if they want to make themselves more visible, they can be my guest.

The prices are high enough that Bungie's not worried about them becoming the new Hayabusa/Recon --- time will tell, I guess. If we get customs going relatively frequently, it doesn't matter what the rest of the plebeians are doing anyways.

Ok, that does make me feel better. I mean I don't mind effects like Grunt Birthday Party and Hearts that show up when you die, although it is kind of distracting, but it's very good that Pestilence and the lightning are millions of points. I saw what the lightning looks like in a leaked video and it looks annoying.

Speaking of which, where are: Hayabusa, Scout (beak), the old school Security, and the Rogue helmets? I think the H3 Security helmet looks better so I hope it's in there. Also, although Hayabusa was annoying because all the kids used it the shoulder pads and chest were very popular among the general population so it doesn't make sense that they would leave it out. Rogue seems simple enough for them to have it too so I don't get why they would leave out any of these.

I wonder what Bungie's exclusive helmet or other items will be this time?

Can you unlock the nameplates ahead of the games launch? If so, how?
