When purchased, the REQ pack will unlock five permanent REQ customization items of at least Ultra Rare rarity, though they may be Legendary or Mythic as well. In addition, the pack will also contain 10 boost cards that help you level up faster while playing Arena, Warzone, or Warzone Firefight. These cards will be of at least Rare rarity, though they may be higher.
Overall, I think it's great that Halo fans have this option available to them. COVID-19 is having a very serious impact on the world right now, and this REQ pack incentivizes people to donate towards relief efforts — all while being rewarded in the process. Are you going to be buying one (or more) of these packs? Let me know.
Halo 5: Guardians is available now on Xbox One for $20, and the Relief and Recovery REQ Pack is $10.
