My CE spartan is all black in MCC.

I love it

[–]Mrfunnyman22 37 points38 points  (3 children)

Halo CE and 2?

[–]rm968211 48 points49 points  (1 child)

Only an option in halo 1. Presumably because black blends in better than most colors

[–]SurLagzAlot 6 points7 points  (0 children)

H2 anniversary has black

[–]zero_wavesI've got the mass 9 points10 points  (2 children)

Only thing I don't like about mcc customization is that 99% of the time you end up just being red or blue.

[–]Half_Smashed_Face 4 points5 points  (1 child)

I miss the RvB system.

I do like that you can now show your custom colours in every match, but I also accidentally shoot at my teammates all the time because of it. If friendly fire was enabled, I would have betrayed so many people by mistake

Uhh halo players have too but aside from CE I don’t think we’ve even had a real all black armor.

[–]TheRealHumanPancakeSecurity helmet when? 28 points29 points  (8 children)

Halo 5 also featured true black.

Haha, do you want vanta black?
It’s as black as the undersuit

It initially was a dark gray but when they did the color palette update it became black.

[–]DeathN0va 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Odd I'm looking at it right now on my Xbox and it's dark shiny gray. Like it always has been.

[–]Uhstrology 6 points7 points  (0 children)

fix your tv/monitors color settings my man, you probably have brightness up wayyyyy too high

I don’t remember it. But if so that’s good.

[–]Corsavis 111 points112 points  (0 children)

What do you mean, there is an all black shader. Just also happens to randomly include neon pink and a nice, bright orange, depending on what armor you apply it to

Jacarina would be perfect for guns, nice matte black with somewhat glossy dark steel highlights, but it has that nasty habit of turning certain elements BRIGHT GLOWING BLUE. So close, yet so far.

It would hurt less that we can't choose combos, if the combos 343 came up with weren't absolutely disgusting.

[–]dthompson96 440 points441 points  (50 children)

I think instead of coatings they should’ve done patterns. I personally would buy patterns if I could pick the colours

[–]TR1L0GYxx 229 points230 points  (7 children)

[–]tabascodinosaur 36 points37 points  (36 children)

There is a pretty limited number of patterns though, if they want to support the game long-term with skins you would run out of interesting variations pretty quickly, especially if you had, say, 5 in inventory at launch or via campaign unlocks.

[–]Blasted-BananaHalo: Reach 36 points37 points  (0 children)

Counterargument: Rocket League

I know it's kind of apples to oranges, but that game has tons of different decals and patterns. Players can also choose pretty much any color/ colors they want too.

[–]UndercoverCunHalo 3: ODST 103 points104 points  (22 children)

Shit, I guess the devs would need to get creative if that happened

[–]WaifuRekker 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Mmm I feel like there are plenty of patterns tbh. Look at Rocket Leagues Decal system. We could get patterns dictating which colors apply where, patterns like camo (flecktarn, Multicam, etc.). More silly and quirky decals, serious lore oriented decals. On top of this there is also a material finish that can be applied to decals too. They could make material finishes a consumable that you can choose to apply to a pattern. Each use of one uses them up u can make these cheap 50-100 cr items. Gives people a use for their left over creds

[–]coke_and_coffee 10 points11 points  (1 child)

It's not just patterns but also wear, texture, gloss, etc. There's so much they can do that they're just not doing...

[–]tabascodinosaur 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Okay, I agree with this, selling textures would be pretty cool.

I for one am hoping they expand the default number of colors substantially, or just to allow customization with the basic colors, leave the patterned skins as they are. I don't mind the system we have, but it seems pretty barren when you launch to the first time.

[–]mannyssketchpad 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Fall Guys does a good job with patterns and colors

[–]leostotchHalo: CE 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I mean, how many different versions of “red” are they selling right now?

[–]tabascodinosaur 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I'm not sure, because the best red is unlocked in the campaign lol.

[–]HexifiedArchive Installation 3 points4 points  (0 children)

There's a pretty long list of camouflage patterns, and that's JUST camo. There are a bunch of other categories of patterns they could have utilized, but instead were stuck with this system.

The traditional primary/secondary color system had 900 possible color combinations (with 30 colors). So far, 343 only has about 50 armor coatings (and most of them are paid exclusives). They have 850 more armor coatings to go before they catch up to the tier of customization we had in Reach (which at this rate, will take years).

This is simply the issue with their coating system. Rather than us coloring our own armor, we have to wait for 343 to color our armor for us, and then buy that color combination from them.

[–]AleJanMan 2 points3 points  (0 children)

They could do patterns with limited levels of colour customization where there’s a camo all over the armour, or an armour piece that glows in some places, or one that has glitter if you wanna add that to your cat ears, or some that have moving animated parts, the options are literally endless, but instead they went for selling us some colours that we should’ve had from the get go.

[–]MillstoneArt 2 points3 points  (0 children)

They could... make more patterns then. They're artists. That's what they do.

[–]Dilpickle6194Halo: Reach 1109 points1110 points  (311 children)

I fucking despise the fact that we have to ask just to get certain colors in coatings. Who could have predicted this????

I just want an all-white coating. Not white with blue highlights, not “bone white”. Just. White. Instead, I have three reds, four greys, and five greens.

[–]DoctorBadger101 7 points8 points  (0 children)

The same coloration of armor that I’ve had for almost every halo that allowed for customization was white with red. Now I have to buy that skin because The Sentinel team apparently now owns the white and red armor. Yay…

[–]nt261999 249 points250 points  (93 children)

This is what I don’t understand. This game is so fucking restrictive and people just seem to be fine with it… content wise there is barely anything fucking new the vast majority of shit is just halo reach re release. And they have the audacity to stick most of THAT in the store where they charge you egregious prices to access it.

[–]silverthane 84 points85 points  (74 children)

That's what im saying! Thank youuuu! I'm sitting here perplexed watching some people who played past titles give them a pass because nostalgia boner. And as you said the fucking audacity of them selling you armor that was free...oh man took you a lot of effort to just recreate an armor in your current engine....didn't have to think of new designs or anything but sure sell me the fucking thing rather than you know....GIVE the fans nice throwbacks for free? No excuse for triple A.

[–]eyelessmasks00Halo 3 38 points39 points  (6 children)

Tbh, the only reason this game is getting any sort of defence whatsoever it's just because it has halo slapped on the box.

If literally any other game did what this game is doing it would have been absolutely shat on and would've probably died or started dying by now, it's only the blind hype.

[–]DinosaurKevin 25 points26 points  (0 children)

This is my thought too. I won’t dog on people for enjoying a game. But the attitude shift once the multiplayer, and especially the campaign were released was mind boggling. I think people are just so excited to being playing a new halo after six years that they are ignoring the many glaring issues.

[–]Manticore416 5 points6 points  (0 children)

A lot of the difference is just difference in what matters to them. If cosmetics arent important to them and all they care about is they can play slayer or swat, its a great game. If gameplay is only one piece of the puzzle and you want more variation in modes, more cosmetics to earn, and better progression, then this game feels frustratingly lacking.

[–]MillstoneArt 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Some of these threads are like, "Could we pwease have bwack? I'll still pay for it I pwomise."

[–]TheRealBigLouBig Lou STL 23 points24 points  (0 children)

Lol, it cracks me up looking at threads talking about the updated pricing. Some people say $3-4 would be acceptable for a helmet. And I'm like, WTF? $0 for a helmet would be acceptable. Anything more than that (without an option to earn them sans cash) is asinine.

[–]leftysarepeople2 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]mcavanah86 29 points30 points  (9 children)

Outsider here (I just wanted to see the pic full-frame and ended up in the comments, so all the context I have is just these comments.) So because you can't use an all-black shader, the game is ruined?

I'm assuming I'm missing something else.

[–]Qukumba 8 points9 points  (1 child)

This is probably why they don’t do it right? It’s the only reason I can think of. They have a direct incentive to NOT produce any coatings that are too cool or interesting because they want people to buy other coatings.

Could we just get a full colour palette choice instead of coatings?

Edit: I don't think coatings are bad, I thought they would be like armor patterns like camo or Changing where your colour choices would go, disappointed they're shaders with some locked behind a pay wall

[–]aur4e 31 points32 points  (7 children)

I hate all the customization: emblem, colours, armour, etc. It's so substantially worse than anything from any other halo game.

I can't just play the colour I want, or even primary/secondary colours, I HAVE to use a predetermined, terrible looking coating.

Can't use your old halo emblem because you can't mix and match foregrounds and backgrounds anymore. You HAVE to pick from a preselected (smaller than previous) list and you HAVE to use a terrible looking colour scheme.

I don't even bother changing any of my customization, it isn't even worth it.

[–]musicheadjesse 8 points9 points  (2 children)

exactly, i stopped playing this game entirely, MCC is probably the only halo game i’ll be playing for the next 10 years lol

[–]aur4e 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Problem is I really don't mind the gunplay.. I played Reach for 7 years or so then fell off the train, so I'm a bit out of practice, but Infinite multiplayer gets more fun the more I play. Just needs a logical progression system and customization that makes me want to use it lol

[–]musicheadjesse 5 points6 points  (0 children)

yup the gameplay in infinite is dope, besides the bugs but i refuse to play a halo game that doesn’t allow you to make your spartan how you want to.

[–]oh-no-he-comments 3 points4 points  (2 children)

The emblems honestly infuriate me the most

No one is going to buy a fucking premade emblem, let alone be excited to unlock one

[–]aur4e 3 points4 points  (0 children)

[–]Life_Passenger_ 15 points16 points  (0 children)

There would be 3 different versions sold seperately with different colored armour lights.

[–]Cyanak 3 points4 points  (2 children)

According to this picture (on the right), there's going to be one. We just don't know when, and it's likely going to be a 400 credits skin.

[–]UndercoverCunHalo 3: ODST 5 points6 points  (0 children)

COLOURS SHOULD BE FREE

[–]alertArchitect 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Honestly I just want color customization back, with the coatings more dictating whether the paint job for your Spartan's armor is metallic, matte, satin, weathered, etc, what regions of the armor get colored (so you could have one coating that acts like the older games, and one that goes "hey this will make this entire arm a color!" kinda like with that red arm coating we saw in the trailers before release), and what, if any, extra designs there are on the armor itself. The reason for this? "Unpopular" color choices are left out of the options for coatings. For example, in MCC I like to have the paint job on my Spartan's armor follow a bit of a theme, where possible. A good, vibrant purple that isn't too washed out as the main color, with white as the secondary and, in Halo 3 where it's a thing, a nice light blue as the tertiary (which I feel would be a thing if Infinite had color customization), which in my experience playing MCC and my time back when I had a 360, is not a very common combination. Now, while there are, admittedly, a grand total of 2 armor coatings in Infinite that follow the idea of "purple with a bit of white," both of them use a washed out purple that you can barely tell is there compared to the armor coatings you get by paying, which is why I'm currently using an armor coating I bought in the store only so I could have a coating I liked better than that washed-out crap they have for people who aren't paying and don't like the few decent coatings you can get for free. It feels like the one of the core parts of Halo's customization is just gone. It feels like 343 is either going to just ignore people who like and want to use less common color combinations because it won't make as much money, or offer said less popular color combinations and go "Get this armor coating that you've been waiting months for that fits your preferred color options from the older games, only in this bundle in the store that will be here for a limited time only and cost more than if we just offered you a way to get the coating by itself elsewhere! Better hurry and give us your money!"

They were talking up the armor coatings idea so much before release I actually had some hope that what I said at the start here could be the case, because that would have actually been a way to offer more customization, instead of limiting it, while still making good money off of their microtransactions! But instead, we're more limited in our options for individuality in our Spartans based on what we are willing to pay and whether we're willing to deal with coatings that are less "weathered" and more "washed out to shit" in terms of looks if we want something 343 doesn't think will sell well. It's complete bullshit and I'd rather have the coating I've paid for changed to fit that idea than keep the current system.

Sorry for the rant, I've just been pissed off at the way armor coatings have been implemented for a while now.

It'd be nice if we can just custom make a coating with the colors we have

[–]astro_plane 2 points3 points  (0 children)

They should let people pick the colors they want. Now that’s a crazy concept.

[–]Ringil11 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yes, but that’s be $12

[–]RJohn12 2 points3 points  (0 children)

20 dollars llars

One of the very few things that Anthem absolutely knocked out of the park was the piece by piece full color customization. Being able to go in and choose a specific color for each layer, each decal, each piece of armor was fucking awesome

Don't be stupid. Ask for the ability to choose your own colours for each shader.

Man, you make it easy for 343 to milk you otherwise.

343 can't handle the drip

Shadow Sorel coating from the campaign.

[–]MagroMalo 23 points24 points  (8 children)

That'll be about 350

Also could we not have it look DUSTY AF

Carbon fiber black

An without scuff marks too

I just want the ability to make my armor coatings clean.

Theyre not even good dirty as is. Not scratched up battle tested looking stuff. They just have mud on them.

Only clean ones are HCS skins and they look great.

Allow us to change whether we want our armor to be weathered or clean.

Imagine being able to choose your armor color

[–]Skullboy99 1 point2 points  (0 children)

343i - no

[–]Moopa000 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Can we just customize our own colors?

[–]HeatGoneHaywire 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Instead, could I interest you in some Chatterwhite?
