(Redirected from Nameplate)

Nameplates are small icons seen in pre and post-game lobbies showing player's Gamertags that can be customized depending on certain requirements. Although nameplate emblems have existed since Halo 2 and Halo 3 in the form of small Seventh Column symbols or the Bungie logo, they would not be customizable until Halo: Reach. Nameplates were first mentioned early 2010, when Halo 2[1] was being shut down and again when Halo PC users were told to keep their CD codes.[2]

Players could customize their nameplates by signing up as users until March 31, 2012 when transferred all record-keeping responsibilities to Halo Waypoint[3] and this capability was lost. Halo Waypoint did not incorporate nameplate functionality, and players are effectively stuck with whichever nameplate they currently have.

Nameplates return in Halo: The Master Chief Collection. Unlike in Halo: Reach players can switch nameplates in-game in Halo: The Master Chief Collection.

Halo Infinite[edit]

Main article: Emblems and Nameplates (Halo Infinite)

Nameplates in Halo Infinite are mostly intrinsically tied to emblems, rather than appearing as a standalone customization option. Nameplates determine the appearance of a user's Spartan ID, which can be seen in the Social menu and during the introductory cinematic of each multiplayer match. The backdrop design of each nameplate is now determined by the nameplate emblem the player has equipped. Furthermore, players may also customize the color palette of their equipped nameplate, similarly to emblems. The nameplate also determines the player emblem that appears on the scoreboard during multiplayer games.

Nameplates are unlocked through a variety of ways, including:
