Operation: Banished Honor arrives on April 30 and you’re gonna want to look the part! After all, the Banished welcome all who pledge their service to Atriox, and your new allegiance and mindset demands a new outfit, so let’s find out more about the customization that awaits you...

Spartans have often been thought of as incorruptible symbols of virtue, but that’s just the official story. Some names are known as historic examples of Spartans having gone rogue, pledging themselves to a variety of causes or simply trying to leave the UNSC behind to start a new life—Randall-037, Soren-066, Michael Crespo, Vladimir Scruggs, Ilsa Zane...

The Banished are united not by species or faith, but bonds of brotherhood and allegiance to Warmaster Atriox. Cast off the ties to your previous life and give yourself to the pursuit of glory and spoils as you work your way through the Operation Pass, which contains the pieces you will need to assemble your new Champion armor.

Progress your Operation Pass with Match XP and Challenge completions, and unlock new armor, a new visor and emblem, and Spartan Points to spend in the Exchange.

Additional premium options for the Operation Pass include:

  • 500 credits will make the Operation Pass durable (it will not expire), offers bonus XP during the Operation’s live window, an extra Challenge slot while your pass is equipped, and comes with an exclusive customization item.
  • 2,000 credits instantly unlocks all 20 tiers of the Operation Pass at purchase and includes the exclusive bonus customization item.

Upgrade to the Premium Pass to obtain the Fuego Flame armor coating and strike fear into the hearts of all who would oppose you.

*NOTE: The Banished Honor trailer and promotional images depict the Datacore Administrator visor as a reward in this Operation Pass. The Datacore Administrator visor is part of the Facing Firewall bundle while the free Banished Honor Operation Pass includes the Essence Decompilation visor.


Sometimes it’s fun to just jump into the Armor Hall and try out a bunch of different looks—seeing what elements can make each core and kit just the right kind of unique.

Coatings are obviously a key element of customizing your Spartan, and when Operation: Banished Honor launches we have 54 existing coatings that have been updated to work with some additional Armor Cores and Kits that were previously unsupported.

(UPDATE 4/30: This section has been updated to be more clear about the coatings changes relative to the final details available in the patch notes. The original copy was unintentionally vague and did not accurately reflect the nature of the changes made.)

Missed out on previous customization rewards? Enter The Exchange.

The Exchange is a brand-new shop rotating each Operation that contains both items from the past and never-before seen customization content. Items are purchased with Spartan Points—a free currency that is earned through three primary ways:

  • Completing your first Daily Challenge will award 250 SP (rather than XP).
  • Completing the weekly Ultimate Reward will award 1,000 SP (instead of a misc. customization item).
  • Operations Reward tracks will offer up to 15,000 SP (replacing misc. other rewards).

When The Exchange refreshes, items will not be "going away," removing the chance to get them—they will still be available to purchase with Spartan Points through the customization menus (much like bundles once they have rotated out of the Shop).

For an in-depth breakdown, head over to our Exchange blog.


Banished Honor is just the beginning, as it will be followed by two further Operations still to come...


Tenrai will return with new customization rewards in a free Operation Pass, a Tenrai-themed refresh of the Exchange, and new Shop bundles.

JULY 2-30

New Mark IV-themed armor pieces are accompanied by an Exchange refresh full of tactical gear from the past and more!
