Halo Reach special emblems or “visual flairs”

21 08 2010
This is what Bungie intended for the visual flair. I had actually predicted this a LONG time ago, as well as space combat. I…am a god

From top to bottom:

  • The Septagon – This option returns for anyone who links their LIVE account to their Bungie.net account.
  • The DMR – A pro weapon for Pro members. Get Bungie Pro to bump up your File Share, render videos, and get this emblem. Active subscriptions bought in Halo 3 or Halo 3: ODST carry over to Halo: Reach, of course.
  • Marathon – Play the full version of Marathon: Durandal on Xbox LIVE Arcade to enable the Pfhor Terminal emblem.
  • Halo 1 – Enter your Halo 1 PC/Mac product key to enable this emblem. Each key can only be used once, so you’d better stop reading this and grab that key before your brother does. Since we have no way to validate who has played the Xbox version, this emblem is reserved for that dedicated community of computer gamers, with over 50k unique users still active each month, 7 years after release. Thanks for sticking with us. It’s been quite a ride!
  • Halo 2 – Automatically available if you played Halo 2 for Xbox on your LIVE account before its tearful retirement. If it’s not active for you, no amount of wheedling will change that, sorry.
  • Halo 3 – Take a guess… On the plus side, there’s plenty of time to head to your local purveyor of fine, shrink-wrapped games to snag a copy if you’re the one person who actually reads the news on our site and hasn’t played this game.
  • Halo 3: ODST – Ditto.
  • Assault Rifle – This fine armament goes to anyone who played the Halo: Reach beta a few months ago.
  • Spartan Helmet – CLASSIFIED
  • HALO – Like Blamite out of a Needler, these faceplate options can supercombine. Unlock the emblems for Halo 1, Halo 2, and Halo 3 to get this special emblem.
  • The Star – Who knows? We haven’t come up with a use for this yet. Maybe we will in the future.

Halo Reach Armory and Matchmaking updates!

2 07 2010

Bungie has given us another taste of what we can customize in Halo Reach. The color of the visor (although it has been predicted) it’s still pretty neat. PICTURES!

And secondly, Bungie has said the starting layout for their matchmaking playlists!

“The plan we’re going with for now includes six hoppers under a “competitive” category. This is the final name of the “standard” category you saw in the beta. These playlists include 8-man FFA, 4v4 Slayer, 4v4 Objective, 2v2v2v2v2 Multi-Team, 8v8 Big Team, and 6v6 Invasion. Then there’s Arena, which has 7-man FFA, 2v2, and 4v4. Arena is all Slayer, all the time, as we’ve explained previously. Incidentally, this isn’t the entire offering you’ll find in Matchmaking, but it should give you something to look forward to.”
