Why are campaign coatings only for MKVII?

Why were 20 tiers shaved off the battlepass? Related to this, why are some MKVII being sold in the store? Why do bots have MKVII helmets and cosmetics that aren’t available to players? Why are many tiers filled in with essentially useless items like armor emblems, or shoulder pads that are duplicated? Why can’t we use cosmetics that are put on armor kits, especially when a lot of the shoulder pads have to be bought?

Why are campaign coatings only for MKVII?

Because 343 wanted to give players the illusion that unlocking cosmetics through the campaign meant getting cooler-looking stuff to wear in multiplayer, despite it only being applicable to a single armor set.

Why were 20 tiers shaved off the battlepass?

Probably so 343 could use those in the next battle pass.

Related to this, why are some MKVII being sold in the store?

Greed. 343 wants you to spend most of your money in the shop. Plus, since people are already buying the ugly $20 armor sets and $10 weapon ornaments, that further enables 343 to paywall even more cosmetics.

Why do bots have MKVII helmets and cosmetics that aren’t available to players?

Probably because they’ll eventually be released in later battle passes (or most likely the shop).

Why are many tiers filled in with essentially useless items like armor emblems, or shoulder pads that are duplicated?

Content padding. It’s to encourage people to buy the Battle Pass so they can get the rewards they want sooner with extra paywalled items like the XP boost. There’s probably more to it than that though.

Why can’t we use cosmetics that are put on armor kits, especially when a lot of the shoulder pads have to be bought?

Refer to my 3rd response. 343 wanted the customization to be this convoluted so people would buy the same shader or armor piece for a different set.

Damn bro… it’s almost as if content was removed, delayed or placed behind a paywall so 343 could make more money off of it… nah, no way. They wouldn’t do that!

Don’t say that too loud or you might get banned.
