New Halo 3 Weapon Skins On the Way

by Liana Ruppert

Halo 3 has finally made its way over onto PC and 343 Industries is giving fans a taste of what sort of customization players can look forward to. For the first time in almost 14 years, Halo 3 is finally getting some new weapon skins alongside a few other tweaks the team has planned. 

The studio behind the PC port have added a ton of new customization options as well as new content for players to enjoy both within and outside of Halo: ODST. It looks like some of the new customization options being included will work hand-in-hand with Halo Infinite, including new weapon skins and shiny new visors. 

343’s Max Szlagor, the design director for the game, took to the Halo Waypoint blog to talk about a few of the ways players can customize: “For Season 3, we are looking to continue expanding on what we are offering for customization. This will include new weapon skins, new visors, and other content for Halo 3. Some include brand-new customization options that never existed before in Halo 3. This marks the first step in our expansion of Halo 3 customization.”

He added that they are also looking into adding some new nameplates as well for profiles across the entire game. The team was clear to reiterate that all of these cosmetic options can be earned through completing challenges and gaining points during each season. 

The next season launches when Halo 3: ODST launches, which is good for those just jumping in because 343 also mentioned that season 1 and season 2 unlockables will still be available to earn. “If you have not yet advanced through the first 100 global ranks you can still earn a season point on each level up. If you’ve already done that, there will be a new set of seasonal challenges as well as ongoing weekly challenges that will be there to earn both XP and season points. That said Dana can speak to how the seasonal challenges are going to rotate out to our next season.”

343 Industries has been absolutely killing it when it comes to accurately porting over the Master Chief Collection over onto PC. It hasn’t all happened at once, instead opting into individual flights to ensure quality is not harmed when getting everything acquainted to the series’ new PC home. We can’t wait to see what else this team has in store, especially when Halo Infinite arrives later this year. 

As for Halo 3 itself, Halo 3 is now available on PC, Xbox One, and Xbox 360. You can learn more about what’s next for the Halo franchise with our Infinite hub right here. Be sure to also hit us up with all of those Halo fan moments over on Twitter @PrimaGames!
