Promotions[edit]

"The Mark V helmet features a sleek design that served the Spartans well when it became standard issue in 2551. Covenant legends say that Spartans wearing this armor would sometimes burst into terrifying flames on the battlefield, but such accounts were usually blamed on Grunts suffering a bad batch of methane."
— Helmet description

As part of the marketing campaign, customers who pre-ordered the map pack from GameStop would receive an exclusive ODST Flaming Helmet for their Xbox Live Avatar, although it was wrongly marketed as a Mark V helmet.[4]
