Halo 5 Armor Breakdown

Here is a fun lil exercise I did recently. I broke down armor in Halo 5 based on the components in Halo 4. If you ever wanted to try and make your Spartan-IV consistent between Halo 4 and 5. This may help you out. Or if you were curious about what you were wearing that the game doesnt say. Anyhow regardless if you like Halo 5 armor or not this may interest a few folks here.

My next mission is to compare the unknown stuff to Halo 5 armor. And also see if any Halo 5 armor variants share stuff that isnt from Halo 4.

Unobtainable in Halo 5
This is a list of all Armor in Halo 4 that doesn’t appear in Halo 5. Just so its clear I considered them.

> Armor:
>
> - Hazop - EOD - Vanguard - Oceanic - Mark V - ODST - Prefect - RicochetForearms:
>
> - XV-27 Shifting

Notes
Halo 4’s EOD does not appear in Halo 5. That is a GEN1 variant and isnt the same as the GEN2 version.
Ricochets forearms appear in Halo 5 a lot. But the main bulk of the armor is not in Halo 5.

Appeared in Halo 4 first breakdown
If the armor appeared in Halo 4 it appears in this list.

Looks like you took a considerable amount of time in listing these out, not to mention being a pain in the butt job. I shall, however, still congratulate you; Good job, bud!
