the Game modifying perk, as they stated
> “When we launch Halo 4 in November, that’s just the beginning,” Ellis tells us. “Specializations are just another opportunity to make the play experience months and even years after release feel fresh.”
> With that in mind, a few housekeeping notes: Specializations give you 10 extra levels’ worth of goodies to unlock, including nine levels of cosmetic armor items. Those nine include armor sets, skins for those armor sets, a weapon skin, emblems, and a visor color. On the tenth level (though the order of what will unlock when isn’t finalized yet, according to 343 and Microsoft), you get your <mark>gameplay modifying perk – the ultimate prize you really care about</mark> that we’ll detail below.
and about the “Special Suprise” you’ll get at SR-130, is just disappointing.
i do still enjoy the game, but i want to feel special when i reach max rank. and almost every helmet is ugly. Recruit PRME (Prime) is the only helmet i really think looks cool.
