I'm trying to unlock all the armour and helmets in Halo 5. Does anyone know how to get the following helmets:
Operator Gen1 (rare)
Recon Gen1 (rare)
Security Gen1 (rare)
EVA Gen1 (ultra rare)
Military Police (ultra rare)
Mark V Delta (legendary)
My understanding is that the Achilles helmet and armour is unlocked after beating Halo 5's campaign on legendary(?) but these other helmets I have no idea how to get. I tried Gold and Silver REQ packs but it seems like the game is done giving me customization unlocks.
Any help would be appreciated!
Those armors were unlocked with the Classic Helmets REQ Pack which can be bought in the Microsoft Store.
As for the Achilles....it is probably the worst armor set to obtain. To get them, you have to be in a Spartan Company of 100 (so...99 other players and you) and completing all the Company's Kill Commendations. Though, this doesn't work if you join a Company that already has it unlocked. You have to be in a Company that hasn't unlocked it yet. I say it's the worst set to get because in all honesty, you shouldn't have to rely on 99 other players in order to get a single set of cosmetic armor. There are some Companies out there still trying to get it, but at this point, I don't think there are many still grinding for it. Most people these days are scouting for Companies that are reaching the final stretches to unlock the set, and joining them last minute to get it.
Also worth noting the standard Helioskrill armor is unlocked by beating Halo CE, 2, 3 and 4 on legendary in MCC. You can unlock the Bloodgorger and Warbound variants of that armor through REQ packs. Also know from friends that those two variants often come up if you decide to by the greatest hit req packs. I don't think the same applies to the standard Helioskrill armor. Someone on YouTube did a video of buying like 10 greatest hit packs (gives you a sense of what you might unlock with those).
You can get ALL sets of Helioskrill armor from the REQ Packs. That is how I got my set. It's not just the Bloodgorger and Warbound sets, you can get the plain OG set from Gold Packs as well. They made it so you don't have to beat Halo 1-4 on Legendary anymore to obtain it. I mean, if you want to do all that work to get it, I am sure you still can. But they made it so you don't have to anymore. Just get your hands on some Gold Packs and hope you get lucky.
