Between their unveiling and release, certain armor coatings underwent changes, ranging from minor to major. These include:

  • The Granular coating, the render of which originally displayed a predominantly cyan Spartan with green accents. The techsuit of said Spartan was yellow and red. The final version of the coating has the player's Spartan taking on a primarily yellow color, with some minor red, blue, and green accents, while their techsuit is fully black. In the final game, the 343 Industries-exclusive armor coating, Unicorn Dream, bears a large resemblance to the pre-release version of Granular.
  • The Blood Shadow coating, revealed in a promotional image featuring seven Mark VII-clad Spartans, originally featured metallic red on the upper torso's portion of the techsuit. The rest of the coating remained unchanged from its launch state.
  • The Red Shift coating, which underwent a more subtle change, with most wear and tear seen on the pre-release render being removed from the final product. Additionally, most colors on the coating appeared to be much brighter.
    • It was announced in the Season 1 Outcomes Report that the Red Shift coating, along with the Watchdog coating, will be updated to be more in line with previously released renders.
  • The Splinter Desert coating was subject to a near unnoticeable tweak, with the original promotional image for the coating showing the camouflage pattern on the Spartan's shin area of their techsuit. The final coating would opt to keep the shin region entirely brown.
  • The Untethered Wind coating was subject to a large overhaul, following the December update during Halo Infinite's Winter Update. Originally, the coating utilized the Cadet Blue color palette, however, with the addition of the Cadet coatings across all current armor cores lacking them, Untethered Wind was changed to feature a brighter blue, silver and white in place of muted gray, cyan lighting over orange, and finally, a new, shinier techsuit texture.
  • The Watchdog coating, which, like Red Shift, underwent a subtle change, where the silver seen on the coating's pattern was much more muted than pre-release renders.
    • It was announced in the Season 1 Outcomes Report that the Watchdog coating, along with the Red Shift coating, will be updated to be more in line with previously released renders. During a community playdate on December 14, 2022, an updated coating, "Watchdog Neo", was shown off and slated for release with Season 03: Echoes Within. Looking near identical to the original coating shown off in late 2020, Watchdog Neo will be added alongside the original, allowing players to keep both the old and new versions of Watchdog.
  • The Wild Kovan coating, first seen in the Halo Infinite Multiplayer Overview, originally featured the coating's signature camouflage pattern on the elbow region. Upon the game's release, this area of the coating would be changed to feature a black, textured design matching the coating's upper torso techsuit design.

References[edit]

  • The Karaba Sirocco's color scheme is a reference to the Mobile Suit Gundam series and possibly to the MSK-008 Dijeh mobile suit from the 1985 anime Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam, due to the usage of the light pale cyan color scheme instead of a pure white or grey. The name references organization Karaba and character Paptimus Scirocco also from 1985 anime Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam. It is possible the references to Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam are due to Halo Infinite's campaign taking place on the Zeta Halo ring.
  • The Ultramarine Corps' name, color scheme, and description are references to the Ultramarines Legion, one of the twenty Space Legions in the Imperium of Man, from the table-top franchise "Warhammer 40,000".
    • The First Founding is the event when the original twenty Space Marine Legions, including the Ultramarines, were created by the Emperor of Mankind.
    • The color scheme is similar to the one used by the Angels Revenant chapter, one of the Ultramarines' successor chapters.
