NO BUTTON COMBO REQUIRED
It’s been awesome to see so many Halo fans take to a very different arena recently to defend the honor of our beloved universe against the cast of Killer Instinct on their Xbox One. Regular readers around here are no doubt familiar with the highlights we’ve done showcasing the various armor and color combinations available to unlock for the KI Arbiter character, but many probably haven't noticed that there are a few color options that are a bit more hidden. If you’re like me, and are always looking for cool new ways to see Sangheili in action, you’ll be interested to know how to bring these rarer looks into the limelight.
The key is to have both players select the same character customization options; for example, both players select the full Ranger or Zealot harness. Upon initial inspection, it would appear that a fight like this would make it difficult to tell each player apart – however, when the match begins, you’ll notice that Player 2 will have their armor changed to a P2-exclusive color. For example, the “Supreme Commander”-labeled classic combat harness will make the second player an Elite Minor (blue, pictured here) under these circumstances. Some of the “hidden” colors are pretty awesome, such as the command-rank Storm harness that showcases the brilliant gold of the former Covenant empire, which you can see here. So next time you boot up Killer Instinct on your Xbox One, try out some of these different combinations to see what you get!
