Your in-game Spartan is a fully realized digital representation of your personality, playstyle, and favorite aspects of the Halo universe. Customization is core to the Halo multiplayer experience, and since the introduction of weapon skins and the REQ system with Halo 5: Guardians, you’ve been asking for ways to don the colors of your favorite teams to show your support. We're excited to reveal the first set of HCS team REQ Packs, available with the Warzone Firefight release.
For Series 1, we’ve partnered with three top esports teams whose players have competed in Halo for years, and have raised many trophies above their heads. Additionally, each pack will contain brand-new Halo Championship Series weapon skins. We strongly believe in enabling the Halo community to support their favorite teams and players, and to continue this philosophy, a split of the proceeds of each of pack will go directly to the respective teams. Fans can also purchase multiple packs to further support their favorite teams, and we wanted to ensure the pack offered a great value each time. Purchasing the packs multiple times will unlock 5 rare or better visual customization items including additional HCS REQs, if available. Let's take a look at what's inside!
Team Liquid has become one of the most well-known organizations in the world of esports, having found success in a variety of competitive game genres. In Halo, Team Liquid has transitioned in just a short time from a team fighting to stave off relegation to one of the top teams in the HCS Pro League, finishing in the Top 3 during the Fall 2016 Season. Now, fans across the globe who live by the #TLWIN mantra can represent their heroes in Halo 5: Guardians with brand new Team Liquid emblem and skins.
Established in 2007, Team EnVyUs (nV) is one of the most popular esports organizations in the world. The team is known for being a staple in major tournaments and producing multiple championship seasons. Led by fan-beloved, long-time Halo pro Justin “Pistola” Deese, nV put together an impressive Summer 2016 resume in the HCS Pro League to finish third in the standings and earn a berth in the Finals. With a split of the proceeds going directly to Team EnVyUs, fans can now show their support and carry the nV badging into battle.
In March 2016, the community watched as Snakebite, Royal 2, Lethul, and Frosty, alongside coach Clutch, took down all opponents that stood before them to become the first winners of the Halo World Championship, forever immortalized in Halo esports history. With incredible precision, poise, and slaying prowess, and under a brand-new banner, this squad is looking to continue its reign over the Halo scene. We’re excited to partner with OpTic Gaming to enable members of #GreenWall to represent their team in Halo 5: Guardians.
Evil Geniuses broke into the Halo scene with HCS Seasons 1 and 2, and quickly became one of the most dominant teams in Halo esports history. Snip3down, Roy, Lunchbox, and newcomer Commonly, led by coach Towey, were also the Gold medalists at X Games Aspen this past January. Now with Halo World Championship 2016 finalist Suspector on the team, Evil Geniuses is looking to once again claim the throne. EG is one of the most storied esports organizations in the world, and we’re thrilled to offer this REQ Pack for fans to support and show off.
Included in this pack, if available, are brand new Evil Geniuses-branded Magnum and Assault Rifle skins, an EG emblem, plus 2 rare or better visual customizations, each with a high chance of unlocking all-new HCS weapon skins for the Assault Rifle, Magnum, and Battle Rifle.
