Skins suck in general, imo. It seems every game wants to copy Counter Strike nowadays. A shame that skins waste precious update development time.

Weapon skins are pointless to have

How is it wasting dev time when different groups work on different projects. Artists make “art”, they don’t code game modes or design maps.

I won’t be happy unless there is a hot dog hammer in the February update!

Well artists could quite handily help design and draw art for maps, props, environments, etc. It’s not like someone goes to a digital design school specifically to become a skin creator… Art and graphical design is not that specific, my friend specialises in character design and modelling, but she is also very good at building design. I toured her school once, little place with less than a hundred students but all really talented, betcha any of them could pick up three different projects easily.

Obviously they couldn’t pick up a keyboard and start programming new game modes, but there are a lot more useful things they could be doing and I’ll guarantee that none of them involve a pizza skin for my assault rifle.

But hey OP, you feels a supersoldier… Whats next? Bacon BR? LOL

I find this argument to be ridiculous, and I laugh every time someone uses it to try and justify 343s use of time. The artists designing skins and other BS fluff to further bloat the REQ system are in fact taking assets away from development, as they are the same artists that would be designing the Bombs, Skulls, Hammers, Race Markers and other functional gameplay assets that gametypes would need. Hell they even redesigned guns from previous games that shouldn’t have been removed in the first place.

There could be several reasons why key gametypes are not included everything from, slow devs, an art team that are too busy spinning their wheels redesigning assets, animators too busy working on REQ assassinations instead of interacting with the gameplay assets? We don’t know and probably won’t, all we do know is that the message 343 is sending to the community is that REQs are more important than the creation of assets needed for staple gametypes. When they come out and say a “Spiritual Successor” to Assault, and that they are using one ball as a way to create as many gametypes as possible right now, says a lot about what is a priority at 343.

Now that I put my tinfoil hat on, I say that they were just trying to figure out a way to implement the gameplay assets into the REQ system. Why have a Bomb/Ball when you could have a Cheeseburger, or a Grape…people like grapes.

What’s to say they aren’t doing both? Or that they have some working on skins and other working on weapons concepts, etc.?

NO. 343 has to lean somehow that of all things severely needed in this game PIZZA SKINS OR SKINS IN GENERAL ARE NOT OF THOSE THINGS NEEDED

Someone here clearly doesn’t like pizza…
Pffft. More for me, then.

February update will have a cheeseburger skin and a ice cream sundae skin I heard.

Nothing…I thought that was clear in the second part of my post when I stated, there could be multiple factors and we will probably never know the real reason. I would hope that 343 would hire top artists that should be able to handle multiple assets at the same time. As an artist who has run a team as AD, I feel for the artists at 343 (I fully understand how quickly projects can get held up). It’s entirely possible they have all the assets created already, but that’s not really the feeling I got from Grossman in the interview. So as much as I feel for 343, I am not going stick my head in the sand and not see that the " message " they are sending consumers is that they are wasting art resources on REQs, not gametype assets.

I like pizza so I am very happy with the new skins. Actually is there anyone you know that does not like pizza? I honestly have never met a single person in my life that doesn’t like at least some sort of pizza.

Yeah, I’ve been saying this aswel. As long as the game is not finished, you can’t joke around with ridiculous skins that don’t even belong in Halo. They have nothing to do with the style of Halo, they are copying CoD/CS:GO so much with all these micro transaction skins.

Or they could have simply finished the designs for the upcoming gametypes long before the development team finished the actual gametypes and simply had nothing better to do. There’s a lot of stuff that people can or could be doing but everyone will always go with the option that makes their argument stronger even if it’s only one possibility out of the five hundred existing.

Skins are part of the REQ system and that does not appear to be slowing down any time soon.

Are you just now learning of these new skins? These have been announced for what…a week now? Besides, there are like half a dozen new skins coming in Infinity Armory, why are the pizza and fries receiving all the hate? They did spend time making other ones too you know. Are you equaling upset at 343i for making the Honest Abe skin? Or maybe perhaps the Boom Co skins? I personally love pizza and french fries.
