I had changed my GT name from "xXrKx Eyeone" to THEBASEDMARTYR and I've been banned since 2010. I know this is a long shot, but I was banned for profile modification. I set the Bungie.net logo as my service tag, and also used "Ultra White" which was not in the game at all. This was 8 years ago, and I was a completely different person back then and I was also a younger kid. It's been 8 years and I still always think about Halo: Reach. I booted it up on my new Xbox One X today and saw I was still banned. I know I don't deserve a second chance, but I never used the Bungie.Net tag to harm people or try to scam anyone...it was simply just for looks. It would really be awesome if I could end up playing Reach again, but I totally understand if I don't deserve a second chance.

Good afternoon.

To start out, changing your Xbox LIVE username will not clear a game ban as the ban is profile ID based, not profile name based, meaning, no matter how many times you change your name, your profile ID will remain the same, and the game will treat it as it has still.

Also, utilizing mods is considered a form of cheating, which 343 Industries and Bungie are clearly against (As they did not diliberately enable cheats or mod support), so it violated Xbox LIVE Code of Conduct, hence your game ban, and due to LIVE Code of Conduct being violated, your ban is not reversible. Xbox LIVE Code of Conduct and Terms of Use are binding agreements you agreed to upon creating your Xbox LIVE account (Otherwise, you have never played online with your LIVE account), hence you are held to those binding agreements and since you violated them, you accept the consequences of that, which in this case is a game ban. I would strongly suggest you read through Code of Conduct and Terms of Use to prevent any future bans.

The Bungie nameplate was not available in 2010 to people outside of Bungie either. So basically you recieved an ingame ban for the following:
  • Using ill-legitimate methods to gain access to Premium In-Game Content.
  • Modding/Cheating in a Game where the developer did not deliberately enable it.
  • Impersonating a Bungie Employee (The second you slapped on that nameplate without Bungie's Consent would have them perceive this of you regardless of what you did afterwards. Bungie Day 2011, which was July 7, 2011 was a unique case as Bungie handed out the Eternal Armor Effect and the Bungie Nameplate as a parting gift, and being done through the now non-existant Link page to link a player's LIVE Profile for Halo to Bungie.net was the only legitimate way to get the nameplate and armor effect without the banhammer striking)
You can have a second chance, but that would have to be on a new Xbox LIVE Profile, where you start off from square one again, as the game ban on your current account is permanent. Hope this helps and have a nice day now.
I appreciate the response, and I was in no way trying to circumvent the ban by changing my gamertag. I'll definitely be getting back with a different profile, thanks for the information.

Sportsmanship is paramount. This stuff is scary, and rightly should be!

Sorry to hear about that, that's really terrible :(
If you haven't already, make sure and follow the information on this Xbox Support website noted below, it gives you some advice on what to do if you console gets stolen. It's not going to get your account unbanned unfortunately, but hopefully it can help any further harm being done to your account:

Can who ever does the banning contact me, I've got a running list of aimbot users with proof to back it up. Thanks.

The individuals who read over reports filed are the Xbox LIVE Enforcement Team, not 343 Industries. In extremely rare cases where a person is actually wrongfully banned and can prove that, 343i will get involved to investigate that case, but that is very rare.

As for your case, you do have several options.

If you are on the Xbox 360, you can use the Report feature by viewing an individual's gamertag and reporting them if you feel they are modding, System Tampering or Cheating being the reason and file the report, then submit a player review, avoiding that player, Unsporting Conduct being the reason.

If you are on the Xbox One, you have more options here, as for starters, you can record what is going on. Once it has uploaded, you can goto xboxdvr.com and get links for said recordings. Then using the xbox app, you can find the profiles to those who were modding and report them, filing a detailed report of what happened as well as the links from xboxdvr to prove why you are reporting them. You can then if you like try to find an Xbox Ambassador or XBLPET on the Xbox Community forums (As publically sharing such reports is no longer allowed on the new forums) and send them a private message with said information.

Hope this helps and have a nice day now.
See, this is how 343 Industries were ruining parts of Halo. The AFK and quit bans are unnecessary, you can't actually SPRINT in Halos 1, 2, 3, and Reach, and the sprint action in Reach is an ABILITY! Not an action. I mean, c'mon! It's very disappointing that 343 forgot that Halo was supposed to be fun.
