Halo 4's Specializations Takes Customization to a New Level

If Halo: Reach‘s Spartan and Elite customization wasn’t enough for you, then 343 has you covered. Introducing “Specializations,” a way to make your Spartan or Elite more unique than ever. Gone are the days of just picking your helmet, chest plate, and other parts to set yourself apart from the pack, Halo 4 is introducing 10 levels of new unlockable armor upgrades including outfits, weapon and armor skins, and other ways to make yourself stand out and people ask “Whoa, where did you get that?!”

[quote]During their Spartan careers, players are offered Specializations through a variety of channels, allowing them to enlist in specific rank paths that come with armor sets, armor mods, emblems, and a variety of other components. Once a player has advanced through the standard fifty (50) rank levels allotted to Spartans, they will have access to a selection of Specializations. These paths are composed of ten rank levels each, which the player, once opting for the Specialization, must complete in order to improve their rank and before being allowed to enlist in a separate Specialization.[/quote]

Each Specialization has a variety of unlockable cosmetics:

• Armor Mod
• Armor Set – Helmet, Chest, Left Shoulder, Right Shoulder
• Armor Set Skin – Texture skin for Helmet, Chest, Left Shoulder, Right Shoulder
• Weapon Skin – Texture skin of one of the loadout weapons
• 4 Foreground Emblems
• 1 Background Emblem
• 1 Visor Color

For more information on what each Specialization entails, such as their armor mods and their role on the battlefield, check out the Specializations page on the official Halo 4 site.
