Armor customization (Halo 2: Anniversary)
From Halopedia, the Halo wiki
This article is about the armor customization in Halo 2: Anniversary. For other games, see armor customizations.
Armor customization in Halo 2: Anniversary allows players to customize their Spartan and Elite player model. Every armor set is already unlocked in game. At the launch of Halo: The Master Chief Collection, the armor was displayed as static images in the game's menu. Following in the footsteps of the launches of Halo: Reach and Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary for PC, Halo 2: Anniversary had its menu elements updated to fully render Spartan and Elite customization options in 3D in Unreal Engine 4.
The armor of Halo 2: Anniversary is based upon the MJOLNIR Powered Assault Armor [GEN2] model, much like Halo 4 as well. To reiterate, armor in Anniversary is unlocked upon starting up the game, enabling the player to just swap between all available armor without any prerequisites required.
At launch of The Master Chief Collection in 2014, the armor customization of Halo 2: Anniversary regressed from that of customization featured in Halo 4 - only allowing for the swapping of entire armor sets over individual pieces of armor.
For the launch of Season 3: Recon, the system has been updated to allow players to swap individual helmets, shoulders, chests, wrists, and legs for Spartans, and helmets, arms, chests, and legs for Elite models.
