The pack will set you back either 150K REQ Points or if you really want them and dont’ want to grind the points, you can purchase it for $10 (US).

I for one am excited for these. I’ll be taking turns with Recon, Operator, EOD, Pilot and my fav of this bunch, the CQB helmet!

Look for a Halo update on your console some time in the afternoon. As soon as I know the update is available, I”ll tweet it out here: @HaloFanForLife

Which reminds me, if you are on twitter and haven’t followed me yet, please do. Every article I post here gets a tweet there. So you’ll be able to stay up on HFFL even better!

New Halo 5 “Memories of Reach” Armor and Helmet Reqs Revealed

This is a reblog from GameSpot.com:

Halo 5‘s Memories of Reach update, the sci-fi shooter’s sixth free expansion, is coming later this month. While you have to wait a little while longer to play the new content, GameSpot can today reveal some new, Noble Team-inspired Reqs that are included with the free update, including helmets and armor.

The new Reqs, showcased in the gallery below Halo: Reach-inspired characters Jorge, Emile, and Jun, includes Indomitable, Vigilant, and Intruder. All of these look pretty badass.

Another thing to note that is you will also see Carter’s armor set from Halo: Reach, but that’s been available in Halo 5 since release in October. When Memories of Reach comes out, all five members of Noble Team will have their armor represented in Halo 5.

Cartographer’s Gift REQ Reveal

The following is a reblog from HaloWaypoint (My commentary immediately following the reblogged article)

The next free update to Halo 5: Guardians arrives next week and with it comes Forge, new Arena and Warzone maps, Seasons and social playlists, brand new REQs, and more. Today, we’re excited to reveal each unlockable REQ. Included are weapons, armor, and emblems you might recognize from past Halo titles, as well as some new additions.

Cartographer’s Gift marks the return of the SPNKr Rocket Launcher – the dual-tubed tool of destruction that comes in 4 flavors. You’ll also notice the full set of Gold Standard weapon skins, which are rather fitting of their Legendary rarity. We hope you’re as excited as we are for Cartographer’s Gift and the wide array of new content it brings to Halo 5. Without further ado, here’s the full REQ reveal of the Cartographer’s Gift update, which we teased in last week’s Halo Community Update.

Join us this Friday at 3 PM PT on Halo Channel and Twitch.tv/Halo to see the new content – including Forge, new maps, REQs, and more – in action!
