Chief’s Armor Question

The armor Master Chief has in Infinite, is it new armor? like different from the one he had on in Halo 4/5?


Is the armor that Chief had on in Halo 4/5 the same one since Halo 2/3?

mildly confused about this

The armor that Master Chief is wearing in Halo infinite is from a series called Halo Legends and technically yes the armor he wears in four and five is supposed to be the armor from Halo 3 and Halo 2 but it’s nowhere near what Halo 2 or Halo 3 look like and that was mostly due to the fact that 343 drastically change the art style of Halo 4 and Halo 5 Halo infinite is finally going back to the classic art style that is the reason why Master Chief has the armor he has now it’s meant to be the armor he had in Halo 3

2-3 is the same suit. Some small differences between games but other than that he has damage to the chest plate.

4 is the same armor from 3 with nano bots used to reconfigure it. The intended way he got the suit was going to be when he got to Infinity but it was cut.

5 he had a new armor styled after the modded suit he used in 4.

In infinite it’s not clear where he gets the new suit if you weren’t reading the books.

Chief uses the mark 6 version of the gen 1,2, and 3 suits from 2 onwards.

it is new armor, in the books that follows infinite, it was there where he gets the new armor,
