Halo 5 Guardians boasts a total of 467 armor and helmets; with 238 helmets and 229 body sets. If I did my math correctly, that's 54,502 total combinations of armor for you to choose from. Of course; twelve of those helmets and three of those body sets are locked behind paid/limited time REQ Packs and Spartan Companies. Anyway, I've spent the past few days collecting different armor combinations, be it asking for them or ripping them from YouTube videos. This is an effort on behalf of both me and you, the community, if you see a combo that isn't shown here then feel free to post it in the comments with a link to the screenshot (NO LAZY LINKS ACTUALLY POST THE DAMN THING IF YOU ARE A MARINE-IRON OR HIGHER) and I will happily add them to the list! Le'ts hope we can see this thread last for months or even until Halo 6 comes out!

You want to see yours shown off to the community? Got a combo you're not using but still love? Then you need to do a few simple things!
Simply post a screenshot of your Halo 5 Spartan in-game (menu is okay but please don't grab it from Waypoint or off a damn phone) as well as the helmet and armor used and as long as I don't have the combo already, you're good to go for the list. IF your armor has already been shown on the list, I'll simply use the image that looks better, sorry other person/people.
The images have some requirements though, it simply must show off the following:
  1. Helmet
  2. Both shoulders
  3. Chest
Basically, the front view of the Spartan. Images that are focused on the shoulders or taken from the side tend to hide the chest, leading to an incomplete view of the showcase. It doesn't have to show off the legs, but it is encouraged. Also, try to avoid large weapons like the sniper or SPNKR, unless a stance like Looking Skyward is used. If you can find a way to make them work and show off the armor, that's wonderful! But large weapons do the same thing the shoulders can do and hide parts of the armor. The reason I want it alone and not in a group is because it focuses on the single armor then.

Finally, after my long hours of searching the Halo communities for various armor combinations, I present to you: the entire point of the thread you really didn't have to read any of this.

The helmets will always be posted first in the pair, so don't ask which is the helmet and which is the body armor if you don't know what it is. Now, because they're new and everyone is hyped, let's start off with some combos for the classic helmets, yeah?

The pics linked in #1 and #2 are wrong. #14 and #18 are same pic/combo.

EDIT: Was just letting you know in case you didn't.
The pics linked in #1 and #2 are wrong.
Like I said, ran into a ton of issues.
Yep lot of combos.

But when most have forced colors, shaders, and white paint....

Do we really?
Venator + Indomitable
Edit: will add link later
Edit2: Venator + Indomitable
2nd favorite

I mean, you can mess with the colors to suit you more. White paint sucks I agree but there's nothing we can do about that for most armor sadly.
i think im going with recon1 and hellcat. looks great
The armor system could be much simpler if there were not so many "set designs," any color or symbols should be an option after an armor is chosen, not the armor itself.
A personal favourite of mine: Venator Cestus armour w/ the Rogue helmet. Looks really nice in white and gold (how I usually have it), but works really well with lots of different colour combinations.
I think I'll use Achilles with Achilles.

I use Mark V delta with Intruder, for a classic Reach Mark V look.
Not a lot of people use this one, but and oldie and goodie of mine was Recruit Marked helmet and Tracer Jackpoint armor. It just looks cool in my opinion.
Mark VI Gen I for armor and helmet. Chief all the way!
Recon Gen-1 with Jumpmaster on my fem Spartan


Intruder + Air Assault DSRPT.

I'll start on this thread with some of my classic looks from year 1 with Halo 5.

Security + Security
Security + Venator
Locus Edge + Mark VI SATRAP

(My GT used to be Delta Wolf 4)
Mark VI... keeping it classic.
Classic Chief but I hope this works. I don't know I was messing with the colors but here
