Exactly this! We should focus on more gender neutral armor designs that look cool and intimidating, not rediculous and "power ranger"esque. Look at the armor you currently have equipped, the Air Assault, for example. It looks cool and functional for both females and males, and it honestly always has since it first appeared in Reach. The Mark series of armours are also a good example, especially since we've seen females wearing Mark IV armor (Red Team from Halo Wars anyone?).
I can understand why you'd like to display a bit more femininity, when my Girlfriend plays, she too also wishes for a bit more ''lady styled armor''.
I think that it is armor, it should be there to prevent things from entering your body and do damage to your organs, not make you look stylish and beautiful.I like to go with a mix of armour, but why would there be so much choice if people didn't want to go for style? People have different styles and mine happens to be feminine.
But that is me, and I tend to go with practical armor over style.
I'm not trying to say I want to look 'beautiful' and have a tiara on, I'd just like some more slim line armour.
Or is that too much to ask? :(
However from the lore and design perspective behind the MJÖLNIR armor: They're not meant to put any specific emphasis on wether you're a male or a female. The old GEN1 suits were unisex which is why would couldn't tell wether one was a female or a male so easily. Halo Reach and Halo Legends did put some changes on that tho. Would make sense in Reach to give the ladies of the Halo community an option to play as a female spartan.
I wouldn't say it's too much to ask for but in all honesty, armor isn't designed with any specific gender in mind.
I know Halo 5 offers SOME suits with less clunky metal parts and all that but that's about it. It's about finding the style that suits you the best.
Ouui.. i shoud've been more specific in my post tho. I forgot to add most of my personal opinion in contrast to why female style armor aint in los Halos. Did post a nr.2 above somewhere but i'll just recap it shortly: The MJÖLNIR obviously aint designed with any gender in mind like i said, however that was the old GEN1 suits really.
From my own heart: I really wouldn't knock down the idea of the female community getting some armor tailored to them. Honestly all the GEN2 suits do look like a collection of PowerRanger-Ninja-Anime-Transformer knockoffs for males. Like cosplays most of the time
This is why i Praise MARK VI so much.. Still beautiful haha
But really, lore states GEN1s are unisex but there hasn't been heavy lore around the GEN2s. By all means they could add the armor as i said! As long as they don't go over the line and put a huge emphasis on ''im a woman'' with all the body shapes and vice versa. As one said above, breasts on a cheast plate? Now what in the world.. We all know everyone would go from ONYX to Bronze within a week..
Lizzie is only asking for them to widen customization for women on Halo. I think it's fair enough.
