… It’s a good idea, certainly…
But I swear to god, if I see people running around with golden boltshots or golden pretty much anything; I quit.
CoD did gold and I’m fine with that (I know 007 did it first), but I think Halo ought to do something different. Let CoD have the appeal of shiny golden weapons, and let Halo do its own thing with whatever it wants to do.
I’d say the more weapon ranks you unlock (It pains me to call it that after MW3, but its just easier) the more classic skins you unlock. For example with the human weapons you could go back through Halo 3 BR, to Halo 2 BR and possibly to the Frost BR for the last level.
For the Magnum you could go Halo 3 ODST, Halo 2 Magnum, Halo CE/Reach/3 Magnum. (Keeping in mind it would be cosmetic only.)
DMR could go Halo: Reach and then get its own set of special skins perhaps.
AR could go: Halo 3, Halo CE, Halo Reach
Covenant weapons could do something similar as well. Promethean weapons would be interesting… I’m not sure what to do with those, but they could get their own skins as well (of course).
Just please, no gold. Maybe a golden warthog (hidden of course) or a hidden golden CE magnum in campaign, but none of that stuff in multiplayer.
> You do realize Call of Duty didn’t invent these things.
Didn’t Frank O’Connor say “There are some things Call of Duty did that we think Halo can do better.” ?
I’m fairly certain that was said around the GI article… or possibly E3 (last year).
