Halo 4 – Specializations Strategy Guide

Halo 4 – Specializations Strategy Guide

In Halo 4 specializations are a brand new feature that allows you to take your Halo Spartan to whole new levels of mastering specific skill sets.  Unlike the past Halo’s where you simply collect points until you reached the maximum level,  now when you reach rank SR-50 you will be able to choose a specialization.  Each Specialization includes a total of 10 levels which must be completed before advancing through another Specialization.   These unlocks include:

  • Armor Mod
  • Armor Set (Helmet, Chose, Left/Right Shoulder)
  • Armor Set Skin (Helmet, Chest, Left/Right Shoulder)
  • Weapon Skin
  • 4 Foreground Emblems
  • 1 Background Emblem
  • 1 Visor Color

So what is a specialization exactly?  Well when you have achieved a specialization you will receive the bonus abilities or features of that specific specialization, for example Pioneer specialization will help you gain XP faster and the Wetworks will have abilities such as less visible to Promethean Vision and quieter when sprinting.  Specializations also allow you to unlock Support upgrades and Tactical packages for your load outs which as you know are super important in Halo 4 game strategy and living.

For the standard edition of Halo 4 you will start with two specializations (Wetworks and Pioneer) while the people who have purchased the “Limited Edition” Halo will be able to access all eight specializations.  Specializations can be used in both Spartan Ops and in the Multiplayer War Games.
