GO REALLY, REALLY MEDIEVAL
As Season 8 rolls out so are some brand-new sets of armor aimed at letting you unleash your inner warrior. Whether you’re an ancient Spartan, a Viking of yestercentury, or a highly specialized super soldier from the near future, you’ve got a few ways to dive in and update your look. This season’s brand new armor sets, weapon skins, vehicle skins, and back accessories are just the beginning.
DON YOUR ARMOR
Perfecting your Spartan’s look is a task that’s always ongoing. And, while you’ve had your pick of a great many different armor sets from across Halo’s history, we’re adding in some new flair with sets inspired by ancient warriors from across the ages. And, with the addition of the Belos (for those that want to inspire looks drawn from ancient Rome), Blackguard (for those of you that might feel more at home during the Dark Ages), and Drengr (for the Spartans that prefer to pledge their allegiance to Norse gods), you’ll be prepared for any battleground.
Welcome to Season 8, Mythic, for Halo: The Master Chief Collection. [For the above image in full res, click here.]
FROM THE TECHSUIT UP
An updated set isn’t complete without a fresh techsuit to tie the entire look together. Whether you’re a super soldier from the UNSC or you’re a freshly minted member of the Blackguard, you can unlock Latticeweave, Chainmail, and Dragonscale techsuits.
SWORD, MEET BOARD
Making your presence known on the battlefield is always important. When you’re charging into battle, it’s best to give your teammates something inspiring to follow. With MCC Season 8 a brand-new batch of Back Accessories have been added into the game, all in the theme of the newly added armors!
While the MA40 has stood the test of time, the latest weapon skins added to MCC Season 8 take it to a whole new level. By unlocking weapon skins for your Assault Rifle, Sniper, SPNKr, and more - you can give a whole new meaning to “blast from the past."

Riding your noble steed into battle is a feeling that’s irreplaceable, to be sure, but striking fear into the hearts of your opponents is all the sweeter. With thanks to some new vehicle skins for your Warthog, Scorpion, Mongoose, and Hornet in Halo 3, you’ll be able to even make Sandtrap’s Elephant turn and run in fear. (Might take a while, though.)

FROM REACH TO REQUIEM
The role of Noble Six is one a great many of us have taken on. And, when filling a helmet the rest of the crew would have rather left empty – it’s important to bring something new to the table. (Aside from the lone wolf stuff.) Next time you make your way down to Sword Base, you can prepare to do so with a freshly updated helmet from the freshly introduced Belos, Blackguard, and Drengr set!
And, if you’re looking to dial up the customization even further, you can update your voices and body types in Halo: Reach and Halo 4, to make sure that your look represents you the best it possibly can. So go ahead, turn every knob and flip every dial – your Spartan’s customization journey has only just begun.
