Fans are looking forward to the Halo Infinite armour on offer, and we already know that they're bringing back the straight black undersuits that the community clamoured for. But there are other classic armors and suits we'd like to see with the franchise's return to the fore.
Halo: Infinite's beta should give us a sneak preview of the new customization options, but we can expect the heavy hitters to be held for release!
Be sure to watch our wide variety of Halo content here!
Hayabusa (Halo 5: Guardians)
Hayabusa was the best classic armor permutation in Halo 5: Guardians. It was a little glossy, but the iconic design from Halo 3 has aged well in the era of modern Halo. There was nothing more satisfying than unlocking Hayabusa in past titles and having the option of running around Halo: Infinite as a ninja is an exciting proposition.
Scout (Halo Reach)
Halo: Reach was the pinnacle of Halo customization. While I preferred the Halo 3 version over its Reach counterpart, I believe Reach really nailed the Spartan look with the Scout armor set. Scout is not necessarily hard to get, but it is a great look and I'm a sucker for a good budget option. I would love to see a wide variety of helms for Halo: Infinite and a Halo without a Scout is not a true Halo!
Mk V (Halo: CE)
Halo: Combat Evolved will forever remain my favorite Halo of all time, and I am a HUGE fan of Red vs Blue; so the iconic Mk. V. Master Chief suit will always be a good look. 343 Industries have done a great job of bringing it back in Halo 5: Guardians, but I am excited to see what they will be able to do in the new engine. Everyone is a sucker for throwbacks and the Mk. V is the ultimate throwback look!
EOD (Halo 3)
I don't know if it's because the Explosive Ordinance Devices (EOD) helmet looks like a stormtrooper, but there has always been something innately badass about the EOD helmet. A staple in games since Halo 3, EOD has never managed to recreate that original look of a pissed off Spartan breathing through two straws.
EVA (Halo 3)
The Extra-Vehicular Activity (EVA) suit is one of the best in Halo history. The EVA helmet has been a staple across a variety of Halo comics, books, and fan art because of the big shiny golden look in the front that opens itself up to so many opportunities for interpretation. This is the one that would be the hardest to ruin in Halo: Infinite, but would be the most satisfying to see done well.
