Regardless of whether they provide gameplay advantages or not, players of any first-person shooter will always gravitate toward armors that make them look fierce on the battlefield. Luckily for you, the newly released Halo Infinite comes with a ton of ways to customize your appearance from head to toe.
Halo Infinite includes 11 different categories of armor customization. These feature pieces that complete any look to fit any player personality out there. All of that being said, you may be thinking, where do I even began? It’s hard when you have so many choices at your disposal. So, here’s a list of our favorite armors and what you need to do to unlock them.
10. Recon Helmet
Number ten on our list is the Recon Helmet from the Materials Group. It offers a sleek visual in grey and blue, which gives you that cold, icy look you need to intimidate enemies. These helmets were essential for Spartan recon and electronic surveillance teams during Operation: RED FLAG. This operation took place in the final year of the Covenant War. This helmet is truly a throwback to these fierce fighters.
To unlock the Recon Helmet, you will need to reach Tier 45 of Season 1 Heroes of the Reach Battle Pass (Premium). This helmet is compatible with various attachments as well as the Mark V (B) Armor Core.
9. SAP / SNP
This one is for the snipers. The SAP / SNP combo of shoulder pads from Chalybs Defense Solutions ensure that you are battle ready. Visually, these shoulder pads are unique as they are one of the few sets that display ammo so obviously. Many armor pieces in this game have a tactical appearance, but this just puts it right out there. This always helps to give your Spartan a tougher, grittier look that says to your enemies “don’t mess with me”.
You can unlock the two of these Legendary shoulder pads separately with the Season 1 Battle Pass (Premium). For the left should, you’ll need to get to Tier 32. For the right shoulder, you’ll need to get to Tier 33. These are compatible with the Mark V (B) Armor Core.
