Halo 5: Guardians - Hammer Storm REQs / Speculation

Recommended Posts

Well everyone! It's that time of the month again, where we get to see the new REQs and such that are coming to Halo 5: Guardians within the week!

 

So, the big rewards- We can clearly see that the new armor set Decimator, is actually a re-imagining of the default Mark V Variant worn by the mighty Noble Six, back in Halo: Reach. 

We also see that there is a new armor set called Marauder, which looks pretty cool!

Now, some of the juicy stuff, we can see some Jumpmaster skins, not bad. The long awaited Gravity Hammer, as well as the Grifball emblem and what appears to be a new set of Warzone attachments. Maybe a new energy attachment. Also, we CAN NOT forget that Hammer stance. ;)

 

With gametypes, we clearly see that Grifball, Assault, and Fiesta are finally making a return. With the hopes of hopefully Infection coming next month.

 

There's also a new Arena map, which looks to be the inside of a UNSC space station of some sort.

 

Okay, okay. Enough stalling. On to the predictions- which is where I guess the armor, weapon skins, and all that stuff that is blurred out to see how many I get right. Emblems, I most likely won't try my luck at.

 

Weapon Skins:

 

Skins that are reminiscent of the Battle Rifle Blast skins back from Halo 4...

 

Stances:

 

Stance with the classic CE Magnum, labeled "Old School".

 

Visor:

 

...Blue n' purple?

 

Assassinations:

 

The Legendary one looks like you're kneeing them in the back of the head, while the Ultra Rare one looks like you're pounding both your hands into them, one of those hands holding a knife.

 

Armor: 

Two Helioskrill Reskins.

 

Two Marauder Reskins.

 

One Shinobi Reskin.

 

Warzone REQ Items:

 

Mythic REQ - CE Magnum.

 

Two Storm Rifle variants.

 

Some kind of energy shank... thingy...

 

Oh, and for those of you who love your colors...

 

Colors have been expanded from 32 to 60
banner5-240f0cb984eb448d8025a51c3aa3bc07

 

And emblems will no longer be restricted to preset color choices, consisting of primary, secondary, and tertiary! Have fun, kiddo!

New weapon attachment has me baffled. One question I have is why people think Decimator is a reinvention of Mk. V B? Decimator is the closest thing to Mk. 7 Mjolnir and I wanna know if there was some extra info about this reveal. Definitely see the Helioskrill, wondering why there would be skins of it though? And how do people know it's the CE pistol coming in?

Gravity Hammer Bayonet!

 

More colors!

 

 

Also, plasma repeater? :DDD

 

I'm just throwing guesses, I'll post the update Monday when they release the REQ's. (Unless someone beats me too it.)

1. I assume it was the closest thing to Mark V due to the shape of the helmet, however, I can adjust this if you'd like me to. :P

 

2. A while back there was a leak, for the Halo 5: Guardians Arena REQ Bundle, which is much like the Warzone REQ Bundle, but only offers permanent items. There was an interesting REQ card placed all the way to the left.

Players have come to the conclusion that this is a stance with the CE Magnum, thus meaning it MUST be coming into the game. However; other players on the Waypoint forums have been seeing a suicide grunt on that blurred REQ Card... So... Who knows...?

Ah now this I can agree with. No need to change anything but I can assure you that Decimator and Mk. V B are different sets and they'll probably release Mk. V B in the future. they also made it known to us that the CE Magnum was going to come back in the Sprint. 

 

I agree with Fishy that the new attachment looks like a Grav Hammer upgrade. Not sure how I feel about more emblems to muddy the REQ pool though...
