New Halo Bulletin is Up!

Waypoint has moved! Whilst will redirect you, the correct URL is now

The weekly Bulletin can be found here:

Loads of content this week - Ranks, Commendations, Challenges, FUD Blu-Ray and DVD (December 4th!) and Double XP on you Mountain Dew (if you're in the US).

Ranking system

New SPARTAN-IV recruits are issued the following gear:

Assault Rifle
Frag Grenade
Recruit Armor, Emblem, Visor and Stance

To rank up, you need to earn XP. You earn XP by:

Playing War Games (earn more for winning and high personal score)
Playing Spartan Ops (earn more for higher difficulties)
Completing each level of a Commendation
Completing Challenges
Using Forge

The full suite of gameplay items is available for purchase by SR-26 but you won’t have enough SP to buy everything until SR-50.

Over the course of the SPARTAN-IV ranks, you also unlock four extra loadouts (at SR-6, SR-14, SR-26 and SR-41) for a total of five loadouts. You can rename these loadouts, so pick names that match the role or gear for that particular loadout.

Visual customization items such as Armor, Armor Skins, Weapon Skins, Visors, Emblems and Stances are unlocked through several means:

Earning a specific SR rank
Earning a specific rank in a Specialization
Mastering a Commendation
Completing a Waypoint goal
