What are promotional REQ packs?
A promotional REQ pack is a type of REQ pack in Halo 5: Guardians that often contains specific, pre-determined items. Some come packaged as codes with partnered purchases, while others are available for a limited time during promotional events.

Content marked with an asterisk ( * ) can NOT be obtained from normal Gold, Silver, or Bronze REQ packs.
Content marked with a cross ( ✗ ) was available during a limited time promotional event that has since expired.

If there are any errors, missing packs, or something new pops up, please do not hesitate to reply to this thread. I will be more than happy to update this post and keep this a consistent and reliable source.
Great effort put into this. Thank you
Very much appreciated. Thank you. :)
I think RUL Monkeypoo or w/e his name is already has one of these threads going.

He does, but I wanted to make something a bit more organized with all of the details, including the pack contents, individual pre-order retailers, etc. :)
What's the * standing for. Pure Exclusive? Because I remember hearing that the FOTUS armor can be earned through REQ packs. But the Emblem can only be earned through the Xbox

Also. Might as well put down the Rewards from Halo MCC to complete the list
Well done!

Sorry, should have made that one more clear! It's marked on things like branded emblems, which seem very unlikely to appear in normal REQs.
I'll update the post to clear that up and add those in, thanks!
We know.
Yeah much more in-depth. I keep mine simple because of a thing called Google.

And yours was pretty helpful in setting up! But through all my Google searching I couldn't find anything like this with all the info condensed into a single page, it's as much of a resource for myself as for everyone else. :)
Th snks for adding the MCC stuff
Much appreciated, thought I had most of em, but I guess I'll need to make a trip to Walmart!
I'll help you.

Also comes with the weapon variants from the other retailers. It's always EB/Gamestop that gets these kind of deals....

I'd love to include different countries' retailers, but I'm actually about 100 characters away from the maximum of 7500 on the OP. Added a little notice at the top, at the very least.
Thanks OP this is a great post :)
OP the limited edition controllers come with the Visors as well as Advanced Promotional REQ packs.

Good job on the post though! Very through!

None of the promotional REQ codes only come with the items listed, they're all promotional packs, those pre-determined items are just a guaranteed part of the pack you're redeeming for. I'll try to make this more clear in the OP, though I'm having trouble pushing any edits.

Edit: Yup, not able to push edits. Maybe I'm too fast for the filters. Or hit some invisible character max. Either way, if anything else pops up, I'll add it to the OP in the morning. Cheers, everyone!
Putting this out there also, no need to add it to the OP if there's no room.

Game UK:
  • HUNTER (Spartan Locke) Armour Set
  • Sentinel Battle Rifle with Laser Targeter
  • Bloodthirst Battle Rifle Weapon Skin
  • Rampant (Spartan Locke) Visor
  • Emblem Pack
I think this is very similar, if not identical to the GameStop pre-order bonuses.
