WHY does everyone PRAISE Achilles?!?!

Maybe I missed something everyone didn’t, but Achilles is, well, ugly. It doesn’t look like it belongs on a spartan other the historical ones, IT A FRIKIN GLADIATOR HELMET. Please clarify!

People like it because it’s one of the most challenging armors to obtain.

Well that’s just like, your opinion man.

I think it looks awesome!

I know exactly what you mean.

It’s the only thing in this game that can be earned.
And if you get the helmet without farming, then you’re in a very very very small club.

Some people work hard to get it, for that they express their work through that armor. Those without the armor (and some with) often see the armor as something undesirable. This was done in other halo games too. People worked for the Recon and the Hyubusa armor and after they completed the work to get the armor they, predictably, wore said armor. The same is with Achilles and it holds different values to different people.

Some see it as a sign of honor, others as a symbol of shame since so many people who have it farmed other players to get it.

I know that when I see players wearing Achilles, that I take the time to T-bag them and beat up their carcasses for all the fun that they’ve sucked out of the game from other players.

Nope all 3 of those you can get out of regular req pool. They changed it a while back. Im sure at the end of updates they will do the same for Achilles.

Half of the reason Achilles is so popular is because of all the kids crying about people who have it. Okay, not my problem they didn’t find a team or join a company.

Kind of, you cant get the regular Helioskrill from a req pool, dunno about the MK VI, and nightfall, as far as I know, is still obtainable from shudders watching Nightfall.

Correct.

However, I don’t know about them doing the same for Achilles. H5 is entirely based on online multiplayer gameplay, and the community is shrinking.

I believe the motivation for adding Achilles in the first place, using the structure that they chose, was an attempt to incentivized people to join companies. The hope being that players would then make friends, align their interests, and stick around in this game (especially in light of the REQ system that quite simply punishes new players IMO).

So, IF they add Achilles to the REQ pool, they’re going to destroy what has become the primary purpose of Spartan companies, which in turn… you get the idea.

I don’t really think it looks ugly. I am pretty indifferent. But I don’t think it is worth the effort to get. Especially since my company is most likely never going to get it. Might as well not even try.

When you get it, you and your Company will feel good. For the people who worked hard, they have earned it. I think it looks nice. For me, it’s all about feeling achievement and showing off :wink:

I wouldn’t call it challenging but a grind…what was challenging was the Vidmaster challenges. Planning to unlock it then never use it.

It’s both, they are all obtainable via req packs or by completing their respective tasks.

Standard helioskrill is legendary mythic, and in the gold packs. I have it, and I don’t even own MCC.

MK VI comes in four forms. Gen1, gen1 scarred, regent, and primus. I have them all. Obtained from gold packs.

And the same goes for nightfall. It’s legendary mythic and it’s the last armor I unlocked when finishing gold packs. I did see nightfa… gags
I did see n… gags
Nevermind.

Huh okay then, I guess I was wrong, but yeah Nightfall shudders funny thing is the only enjoyable aspect to that was Locke, and I guess the way the Hunter worms too.

Someone has Achilles envy.

I have Achilles but don’t even wear it lol. Did for a day or two but I like my armour more
