Aesthetic Ideas

Hey! What if for Halo infinite, 343 could add small aesthetics for the screen. What if a spartan’s visor gets damaged when in combat? Maybe the net damage your spartan has recieved could have an effect on your visor like in Halo:Reach(?), (I’m not sure which halo. I’m referring to that ending where a spartan fights off the covenant and his visor begins to damage and crack) and maybe it could be an optional thing in settings?

Yes, that was Halo: Reach (RIP Noble Six).

I personally think that it would be cool to see the little things like that. The MJOLNIR armour certainly does have some miracle paint work in 2552. All of those hits Noble Six, the Master Chief, and The Rookie take, and not a single scratch on the paint work!

I think it would be far too distracting for multiplayer. I wouldn’t mind it if it were an option in Custom Games or something, though.

Or maybe it could be activated via a skull, like the Blind one removes the HUD completely, a new one could be called Damaged where cracks appear on the HUD depending on how many times you get shot. Would be great for LASO as it will really make players be cautious.

Ah, that would be an interesting evolution of the Malfunction skull for CEA. I support it.

Malfunction! Thank you. You have no idea how much that was driving me insane :joy: I knew there was a skull that removed a random part of the HUD but I couldn’t remember for the life of me what.

Haha no problem! I know how amazing it feels to finally know something you’ve spent ages trying to remember.

But yeah, I love your idea. Maybe ‘Fracture’ would be a decent name?

Damaged, Fractured, it doesn’t matter. I’m happy with either one :grin:

So long as the skull gets added, eh? :wink:

Here’s hoping we get something like it.

I would hate that. One thing I like about Halo is how the screen isn’t so cluttered when you’re taking fire like COD for example. I like clear vision.

It doesn’t have to be forced.

You mean like have it an option that can be toggled? Then I’d be fine with it.

Yeah, we were just discussing the idea of making it a skull for Campaign. :slight_smile:

I’d be down for something like that. As long as I don’t have to have it I’m good.

I like that idea. But it would be alittle distracting in MP, or it would be totally overlooked by players. However, if its implemented in the campaign, it could be pretty cool. Say if you stand in the fire too long, and it overloads your shields, then paint starts to burn and singe, and during cutscene, the armor looks blackened and charred. Or if you take too many hits to the face, your visor shows scuffs and scratches, maybe even a few cracks.
