How to unlock the Halo Waypoint armor via 360 app!

I’m making this post to be helpful since I always see people asking about unlocking the Waypoint armor in the threads.

You are still able to unlock all 7 pieces of the Halo Waypoint armor for Reach. At the bottom of this post I have listed all 7 pieces of armor and included the requirements. The Halo Reach achievements can be unlocked on both the Xbox One and Xbox 360 because of Backwards compatibility, but you must unlock the Halo 3 and ODST achievements on the respective games for the 360 or their backwards compatible versions on the Xbox One. Don’t try going onto The Master Chief Collection to get them in Halo 3 and ODST as it doesn’t work since the achievements will unlock for The Master Chief Collection. (Yes, I’ve seen people comment saying they’ve tried doing the achievements in MCC.) The only way to unlock the armor once each requirement is met is by going to the Xbox 360 Halo Waypoint app and then going to the Halo Reach service record section on the app. Once there you can see the Waypoint armor images. Click on the menu for it and it should then show you what is unlocked and what isn’t. Gamerscore from Xbox One Halo games do not contribute to the gamerscore needed for the requirements. To my knowledge the only games where the gamerscore counts toward the required gamerscore in Waypoint are: Halo 3, Halo 3 ODST, Halo Wars, Halo Reach, Halo Combat Evolved Anniversary, and Halo 4.

I hope this helps all of you who are still searching for this information.

either, as long as you have the achievement unlocked for completing the campaign on legendary you are fine. it basically checks your achievements and gamerscore to see if you’re eligible to unlock it.

Thanks for this! Way to look out

Note that you need the Xbox 360 for this

A direct quote from my post “The only way to unlock the armor once each requirement is met is by going to the Xbox 360 Halo Waypoint app and then going to the Halo Reach service record section on the app.” I clearly state you need the Xbox 360 Halo Waypoint app.

If y’all would read you would clearly notice it. lol XD

If I got the Heroic Achievement for Halo 3: ODST (Backwards Compatible version) while playing it on the X1 , would I still able to get this variant when I launch the 360 waypoint, I already own the CQB base and all the other you listed (Except that other CQB variant)

I wouldn’t see why not. I did some Reach achievements on my alt account to get the military police helmet and it gave me the unlock for them. Since achievements for Xbox 360 games get carried over to Backwards compatibility games you should be able to do it. As long as the achievement is unlocked on the stand alone Halo 3: ODST game and not the MCC version then you should be fine. :slight_smile:

I might try to get some of these.

That’s what it’s here for. :slight_smile: Really wish a moderator would just pin this thread already so a quarter of the Reach posts wouldn’t be asking about the Waypoint armor. XD

Yesssss

Thanks that’s very helpful
