Bungie just post an hour ago on their front-page that along with the new playlist tweaks today the rank cap has been lifted. Also, there is NO new rank cap so Drew can go crazy now. I've looked at my FL and I don't see anyone above a Lt. Colonel Grade 3 though, like everything else Bungie does maybe it takes a while to populate.

Was finally happy to be done with worrying about leveling up for a while after I hit Lt Col Grd 3, then they lift the cap the next day. :P I thought I had more time!

I'm not as cool as Dani. Commander Grade 1. Also, I'm super jealous because most of those TJ and other serious GAF guys are at Colonel already. It appears that none of them seems to have wanted gold visor as badly as I do (or they spent all their monies, whereas I've been budgeting all along). Did pick up my Carter shoulder today though. As some of you know, when I deck out my Spartan in new duds, I like to watch the first cut scene to see how I'm going to look when shit hits the fan, and I have to tell you:
1) I look badass
2) The shot where Carter and I walk out the door of the ops center together towards the Falcons looks really funny since we're the same color and sporting very similar armor loadouts.

What new gear can you buy at Commander and what gear can you see but not buy? How much is each item?

Gear you can Buy: Commando Helmet: 85000 CR Operater Shoulder: 28000 CR per shoulder Commando Shoulder: 40000 CR per shoulder Assault/Sapper Chest: 14000 CR Gear you can see but not buy: Grenadier Shoulder: 65000 CR per shoulder Assault/Commando Chest: 12000 CR HP/Parafoil Chest: 8000 CR Assault/Breacher Wrist: 200000 CR Tactical/Soft Case: 100000 CR I believe that's it, might have missed an item or two that you can buy at Commander, but that's most of it.

Gear you can Buy:
Commando Helmet: 85000 CR
Operater Shoulder: 28000 CR per shoulder
Commando Shoulder: 40000 CR per shoulder
Assault/Sapper Chest: 14000 CR

Gear you can see but not buy:
Grenadier Shoulder: 65000 CR per shoulder
Assault/Commando Chest: 12000 CR
HP/Parafoil Chest: 8000 CR
Assault/Breacher Wrist: 200000 CR
Tactical/Soft Case: 100000 CR



I believe that's it, might have missed an item or two that you can buy at Commander, but that's most of it.

Sharpe, can you buy the Pilot helmet yet at Commander? If so, how much? Any new helmets you can see at Commander but not buy?

Also, I'm assuming everything you can only see at Commander can be unlocked at Colonel is that right?

I've seen as high as Brigadier in Matchmaking (gold star with silver wings or something like that). I don't know how people ever find the time or skill to get that many credits in so short a time.

Colonel Grade 1, damn I didn't think I played that much after I hit the cap. Time to save up for that gold visor.

Is it just me or have the daily challenges really sucked this week? It seems like you can only get a couple thousand points a day lately. I'm never going to make it to Lieutenant Colonel!! Never!!!

Hopefully that number keeps going up since people need more
credits to rank up now. That would be good for us lower ranks,
It would help us catch up.
