same with the various HCS team skins that you can't find anymoreThe HCS team skins are still available in the Microsoft store. You just can’t actually see them in game or through add one but if you search for them they’re still available for purchase.
Dear 343,The Timmy helmet (whale) is pretty easy to get, just 50 hours in custom games. It’s not locked behind any crazy barrier.
Hey guys, gals, bots, and Spartans! Hope all is well and really looking forward to seeing all your work on Infinite.
Random longshot question/request;Could you please unlock some helmets for us faithful now that Infinite is almost ready?
Not asking for Achilles but the whale helmet and the daredevilish helmet would be a nice treat for us faithful.
Worth a shot to ask.
The Olive helmet (the daredevil/pig helmet) is gifted to those who made Forge maps that get out into matchmaking. That’s a exclusive reward for those players - I don’t think that should be handed out to everyone.
I know some of the HCS skins are available... but some... like OpTic Gaming isn't available without a redemption code... nor are one of the HCS armor sets (can't remember which ones)...
And I totally get the theory behind the Olive helmet... but my problem with that is, if 343 isn't be updating the game, then they should find another way to be able to give it out (exclusively of course)... the inability for me to unlock everything shouldn't hinge on when I play the game. Again, I agree it shouldn't be handed out to everyone (like true light or the christmas ones)... but they should have some way for us to earn it again...
My other issue is... they may not show up on my "in game" completion stats, but they definitely show up on Waypoint. So at this point, I'll never completely unlock everything, and with H5 not getting anymore updates or new content, and the population being what it is (and getting worse once Infinite comes out), I'd like to see them come up with a way for us completionists to be able to get them.
P.S. Haven't seen you in the forums in forever!! Good to see you here contributing to the conversation!!! :)
