Okay, so I was helping some friends with some achievements for ODST, and started to reminisce the times I had playing all the other games when I remembered something quite terrible. I Played every game, beat every single aspect, achievements, rank, several times, then had to do it all over again in the next game with nothing to show for it. The closest Any of the games came to satisfying this was Halo Reach, but the three armor components didn't seem enough. So I propose a rather interesting Idea for the avid player; what if your progress made a difference; what if in Halo 4 you got gear for playing the other games. Not just one piece of armor or a special emblem, but a whole separate set for each. For Example, you would gain the following for each game:

> Halo 3

- Type-25 Carbine

- Type-2 Antipersonnel Fragmentation Grenade

- Type-52 Pistol

- M7/Caseless Submachine Gun

- MJOLNIR Powered Assault Armor/R variant

- MJOLNIR Powered Assault Armor/Mark VI

- Legendary

> Halo 3:ODST


- M7S Caseless Submachine Gun

- Type-25 Directed Energy Rifle/Jiralhanae Variant

- Type-3 Antipersonnel/Anti-materiel Incendiary Grenade

- ODST battle armor

- VISR mode from ODST

- Eternal

> Halo Wars

- Type-2 Energy Weapon/Hammer

- Type-25 Grenade Launcher

- Type-50 Sniper Rifle System

- TR/9 Antipersonnel Mine

- Hayabusa Powered Assault Armor/Katana

- MJOLNIR Powered Assault Armor/Mark IV

- Legacy

> Halo Reach

- Type-51 Directed Energy Rifle/Improved

- Type-52 Special Applications Rifle

- M319 Individual Grenade Launcher

- Radar Jammer

- Bubble Shield

- MJOLNIR Powered Assault Armor/Mark V

- Noble

> Halo CE: Anniversary

- M7057/Defoliant Projector

- Type-25 Directed Energy Rifle

- Sentinel Beam

- Energy Disruptor

- Flashbang grenade

- MJOLNIR Powered Assault Armor/Mark V

- Mythic


I think that players would prefer to be awarded the above rather then have to unlock them by spending more hours if not days when they already went on the journey to earn them. Anyone should be able to unlock them, but only by playing the other games. This may prove to anger the players who never played the other games, didn't complete the requirements, or had to switch profiles due to reasons unknown. However, they should still be usable in game, but through this method only would they be able to be unlocked for use in Personal Loadouts. They would not effect combat any more then any other of equal ability already within the game.



I also recommend the return of the other two factions of the covenant; the Zealots commanded by Avu Med 'Telcam will make very interesting foes, and their armor matches their religious commitment, but to see how the Separatists, under the Honorable Warrior's command of the Arbiter, and the Loyalists, the once servants of the Prophets, now ruled by the Tribal order of the Jiralhanae, free of the chains that suppressed their ancient barbaric nature, they now fight amongst themselves; vying to rule the other tribes. All three of these factions have much to gain from Requiem, and are likely to galvanize under the threat of the other factions or the UNSC gaining the secrets of the Shield world. Seeing the three fight would make quite a sight; the Wild Jackals running about with almost random weapons that they scavenged from lord only knows, against the Storm Jackals and their vicious nature. Not to mention the countless possibilities of new and old Brute weapons and vehicles. Like a Spike turret, a fusion of Super heated metal and rapid succession. An Assault rifle version of the Spike riffle would seems to be in order. A new cocktail of death from the mind of a twisted soul, the Harpoon gun will leave your mangled corpse stuck to the wall, floor, ceiling, or whatever is behind you when they release the trigger. Working like a fusion of the Spiker and the Light Rifle, it can fire by simply tapping the trigger, firing metal barbs with great precision, or you hold the shot, then release to twine three barbs together and staple the target to whatever might be behind it. That Metal on Metal would not only punch holes through you, but sear the flesh just the way they like it. Sound like a party?

halo has always tried to keep a balance between the players. No one starts out with an advantage until they get it themsleves, whether its a power weapon or strategic position. The custom loadouts in halo 4 are not meant to give players advantages, but just add more diversity to the styles of play. Also, giving certain players and advantage will somewhat discourage other players

Indeed, However, what upon this list would give an unfair advantage that could not be overcome? The game is based on skill level now, so the higher your skill the better gear you get. The first few months will be havoc as the experienced players ruin the days of the newer players. Most of the weapons on here would very useful, and if used by the right person, a serious advantage, but no more so then it has been in the past game.

This idea was bad, just because someone beat something on the previous difficulty doesn't mean jack-squat. This is how CoD does it. Maybe a weapon skin or an armor set but no; no game changing weaponry allowed!

I would say they should stick with giving people exclusive armors or skins for playing the previous games. Anything beyond that like giving them guns earlier would give an unfair advantage. At least for a while.

I don't see a real problem with this. They already are giving gun advantages anyway, with GameStop giving br and br skins. If I heard correctly you can use that right away while everyone has to reach like sr2 or something. Maybe it's a small weapon advantage but still counts. Also I'd rather get special/ exclusive armor than guns from the other games, but that's just me
