When coating were first announced, I had faith that we would have access to all the basic layouts that we have always made for free since halo 2 first made secondary armor colors available. That is not the case. In fact, there are less coatings to begin with than there were armor colors day 1 in CE. I am extremely disappointed in how this is being handled as I can not keep the classic black and red that I have been using since I first played Halo unless I use a “kit” that takes away my ability to choose armor pieces.
For some players who have been playing halo as a release or an escape from the stresses of life, their armor has become their second identity. Be better, 343.
