Pre order bonus

So ive been reading things on here and all over the web right. So, are the preorder bonus you get where ever you by just skins as in a pattern on armor, not armor as helmets, chest, knee pads …?

For the most part yes, it’s all skins.

Edit: Nevermind on FOTUS (LE console isn’t pre order, thanks for the correction Jugeeya!), but if you are sore about the whole Recruit armor not being exclusive, this an option for you.

Correct

None of the pre-order bonuses are actual armor sets, just skins for the armor.

@CriticalH1T But that’s not a pre-order bonus, now is it? :3

Buy**

O ok. I thought i was going to get the whole venator raptor armor set. Well at least ill get dead eye helmet, rather get the locust one though. Im getting at best buy.

Eh not really but it would motivate those sore on the Recruit armor debacle to get SOME kind of unique armor. It’s still a bonus though, just not pre ordered lol

…If they care to shell out 400 bucks that is. :stuck_out_tongue:

Raptor is just the skin. Venator is the armor.

For Dead Eye and Locus, those helmets are already in game. You are just get a pre order skin to use with them.

My friends have a unicorn clan, so they’re super motivated to shell out the cash :stuck_out_tongue:

Well what ever it is i rather just next month get here already.

I hope so…

No problem, and just for kicks, i’ll leave these pictures here for just for good measure. You know, because most people love looking at pictures :D.

Locus

DeadEye

never realy thought of this but the armour skins we get, we have to unlock the armour first then so if its the last helmet you unlock say the locust cos i reckon thas gonna be a high one your gonna have to get to level 40-50 to use the skin… whats the point?!

I believe it works like the bonus Recon helmet upgrade from Reach. You don’t necessarily have Recon helmet yet but you can still use it’s final upgrade. Something like that for Halo 4.

Gah, don’t even get started on ‘pre-order bonuses’… such things should be banned from the universe. Or at least, make it the same pre-order bonus at all retailers - that would be cool. Having a million different exclusive ones so that the only way to have all of the available content in the game (yes, I consider skins content) is to pre-order and purchase from every different video game retailer? That’s ludicrous.

I don’t like the idea of pre order incentives either. Or having the option to pay for content that should be on the disk in the first place (since these pre order incentives will be avaliable for purchase later down the road. Like, way later). A minor gripe i suppose since you are not forced to buy them but i am older gamer (SNES/Genesis 90s kid) and i remember a time when a game came with content that could be unlocked through time and dedication; Not throwing money at brick and mortar game stores/game companies.

Of course, 343 ain’t no Capcom. They are horrible with their on disk DLC practices >.<.

Technically skins are another set of armor, they do almost look identical to the other helmet but they are still a unique helmet.

Can someone help me out?

I’ve already put in my pre-order with GAME in the UK, to which I am entitled an artic weapon skin and the Circuit armour as well as early access to specialisations.
However I didn’t get these when I pre-ordered, are they given out on release or meant to be collected when you make the pre-order then and there?
