Before the game was released, we were shown the Locus and Deadeye helmet skins as pre-order bonuses. And that’s what we were told they were-- just skins, which implied that we would be able to unlock default helmets in-game. But as of almost 3 months after release, it seems to be that these two pre-order bonuses were not just skins. They were the only way to access the helmets.
Then the KOTH app was released and allowed access to the Locus helmet. However, this is a bit annoying for those who lack an iPhone or Android, such as myself. However, the Deadeye helmet is still exclusive for those who were lucky enough to order from Best Buy.
I’m quoting this from an earlier bulletin:
> “While we know there are completionists that would like to have it all, it’s not unreasonable to think that we may eventually make all of the content available one day.”
This statement made me especially happy because I’m… well, a completionist. I would like to see when we can unlock the Locus and the Deadeye in-game. The Locus helmet concerns me especially, since I don’t have an iPhone/Android and can’t participate in the KOTH app. But when will we be able to unlock the defaults for these two helmets?
I think it’s absolute crud that I get the limited edition and get 1 of the dumpiest looking helmets in the game, and somebody per-orders from somewhere else and gets a sweet looking helmet.
Of course, I was always somewhat envious of those in reach with the flaming helmet and the officer elite.
I’ll be at least happy with my BR skin.
Too bad. Ugh.
Oh, and (the ugly helmet being scanner) hazop is a noob helmet and its stinking ugly.
I don’t even like locus…

Didn’t the Limited edition come with Scanner and Strider helmets and the Recruit armor?
Then depending on where you pre-ordered from you received those bonuses as well.
Who knows what they will end up doing in the end. I was only speculating based on what has been released so far.
> I hope not! Kinda takes away from the exclusive part of preordering it, maybe if they skinned it differently.
I doubt they will release the Fotus, be kind of foolish… least anyways When Gears had ppl whine about the Pre-ordered stuff they re-released everything in a differant color but the LE/360 extras. I can see it being done, but to release everything, no even though I didn’t buy the LE or 360 LE. Got my Gears 360, no need for another.
I wouldn’t mind if the helmets stayed exclusive for the people who pre-ordered the game most of them aren’t exactly all that great-looking, especially the unicorn one (forgot what it was called…) and locus (sorry!) but I love the strider helmet The only one that captures my attention!
