How do I get weapon skins?

OP reflection009

So I've seen players with gun skins and I have no idea how to get one. Please help!
Hey OP, weapon skins can be obtained by progressing through the SR ranks after your reach SR50 - so once you start to choose a specialization. Each different specialization will net you a different skin. There are some other skins that you can get from collectable figures and more from the Champions bundle DLC.

Halopedia has a good list with details:

As a last note, the Champions Bundle DLC is actually now free, so you can grab that straight away for some cool skins:

Thanks for the support, especially for one of the older games. I was wondering if you or anyone could help me with problems on the xbox 360 version of halo waypoint. I have purchased the champions bundle and played through spartan assault on the xbox 360 (and Iphone) which should let me unlock the STRIPED DMR skin after i enter a code on the classified section of waypoint, but it says that i didn’t really play through spartan assault, therefor blocking my ability to unlock the striped dmr. MANY other players are experiencing this.
PotatoKilr - For the Xbox One and the Xbox 360 there is one code that unlocks the flying colours emblem, might be that you are trying the wrong code ( there are 3 separate codes for Windows and Windows Phone). The correct code for your platform can be found here:

If that doesn't work maybe try playing another mission and then try the code again in a little while after. The Waypoint app isn't fully supported anymore and unlocks have broken in the past
wait i didnt know there was 3 codes. Other people have tried one code after the other doesnt work, but can i get it if i played through Halo SA on iphone?
There are 3 codes for the Windows versions of the game - that includes Windows 8 and Windows Phone. For Xbox 360 and the Xbox One, there is only a single code - the one I linked above. You cannot unlock anything from playing on iPhone
ok thamks!
