A Spartan utilizing a unique Battle Rifle skin.

Skins are an element of player customization found in Halo 3 for Halo: The Master Chief Collection. Skins allow players to customize their Spartan visor color as well as the appearance of weapons and vehicles in-game. Skins are an element of customization separate to armor permutations, which allow the player to customize their armor components. The launch of Season 3: Recon in 2020 saw the introduction of weapon skins and visor colors for Halo 3, with more weapon skins and newly introduced vehicle skins being included with Season 4: Reclaimer in November 2020.[1] Another batch of skins was included in Season 5: Anvil.
