Pioneer specialization exp problem?

Okay so as we know once you reach the MAX level of lvl 50 you get to choose a specialization. Now whats the point of choosing pioneer which gives you more more xp when you are already the highest level? I mean you cant go any further so why would you chose it?

could someone please explain thanks :slight_smile:

Gaining more experience will allow you to progress through that specialization faster (netting you those customization options faster), but I’m unsure whether it has any other uses beyond this.

okay so you could go through it and then choose a different route like say rouge and you will get all the helmets, logos and stuff faster? is that right? :slight_smile:

I believe so

okay i better do this one first then haha :stuck_out_tongue:

Similar to the original 50 levels, advancement through the specialization levels is based on XP as well. When you earn a specialization, it becomes an option as one of your tactical or support packages.

By earning the Pioneer XP specialization first, you will have the option to use the XP package when advancing through the other 7 specializations. This will make advancing through the other specializations slightly easier if you decide to use the XP package non-stop. Most likely there will be other packages that will be more important to gameplay however, like Firepower and Shielding, that will take priority over the XP package.

The Pioneer specialization will have almost no purpose if a player decides to pursue it after pursuing the other 7 specializations.

The Pioneer specialization is unlocked from day one; you won’t have to get to level 50 to use it.

> The Pioneer specialization is unlocked from day one; you won’t have to get to level 50 to use it.

This is incorrect. From the 120815 Weekly Bulletin:

> We consider Specializations end-game content because even if you have “access” to all of them on day one, you will still need to reach level 50 before you can enlist in any Specializations. Think of them as giving you control over extending your level cap.

You WILL have to get to level 50 before you can use it.

> The Pioneer specialization is unlocked from day one; you won’t have to get to level 50 to use it.

False.

"<mark>Halo 4 has fifty levels. Once you have advanced through the standard fifty levels, you will get the option to enlist in a Specialization</mark>. You can choose the order in which you tackle unlocked Specializations. However once you select one, you must advance through it completely before enlisting in a separate Specialization.

Specializations allow you to enlist in specific rank paths. These paths are composed of ten levels each. As you level up through these dedicated paths, you will unlock armor sets, emblems, visor colors, weapon and armor skins, and armor mods – which provide even more options to customize your Spartan-IV to fit your preferred role on the battlefield.

These armor mods will work exactly like all other tactical and support mods in the game. They are not tied to specific armor for each Specialization, so you don’t have to wear the armor to use that particular mod. They enhance a small part of the sandbox (meaning good players will still be good, and not good players will still be not good), allowing people to play the style they want to play and experience the parts of the sandbox they like on a more frequent basis.

yeah… I have the same problem with Pioneer.

There’s probably two specializations I want the most… after that ehh…

That being the case, why waste time on Pioneer? In the time it would take me to get it, I could probably get what I actually want!

That said, I’ll probably fall for it and get it early anyway.

The fated fire and ronin prox are incorrect. Unusual Hiccup is right.

Wetwork and Pioneer are available to everyone at launch and anyone who preorders the Limited Edition will get all 8 specialisations.

Also, Game have an exclusive offer where you can order the standard edition and get the specialisations

You are incorrect. Ronin Prox and I are correct. You realize your dailyrecord source confirmed exactly what Ronin and I stated right?

Quote from your article: “With eight Specialisations in “Halo 4,” you can achieve higher ranks in your Spartan career <mark>once you progress beyond level 50</mark>.” Your source also states this AFTER that first quote: “Two Specialisations – Wetwork and Pioneer – will be available to all players when “Halo 4” launches on 6 November”. Available to all players at launch simply means that those two specializations are available once you reach level 50.

Your own source goes against your claim, and Ronin and I used the official 343 Industries source. We are right. Also, here is a thread I created before 343 released the latest bulletin. This thread will clear up your confusion on the regular/limited edition specializations.

That’s entirely incorrect. It didn’t say that two specialization would instantly available for players to use. It means that you have to reach level 50 to use one of two available specialization.

Simple as that.

Once I hit 50 I plan on using Pioneer to unlock the xp mod, once unlocked I’ll use it to unlock everything else faster. Once everything is unlocked I’ll unequip it and choose something that’s useful in-game.

Quote from bulletin: “Two Specializations – Wetwork and Pioneer – will be available to all players when the game launches, and the rest will gradually be made available in the months following launch.”

Learn to read the whole bulletin before you walk around spreading lies.

It’ll let you lvl up faster in other specializations when you choose them. Honestly I might pick it as my first specialization.

Those two are available to everyone, once they reach level 50. LE owners will get 6 more options, but they still have to reach level 50.

Like you said. Learn to read the entire bulletin.

From what I gather some specializations can be selected before lv 50 but many are only available afterwards it also says that it will be available on arrival or something like that

Big thanks to BeniShroom for beating down the Sep7agon hate! I literally “LOL’d” at your -Yoink!--slappin’ post.
