With Halo Infinite, 343 Industries and Xbox Game Studios are placing a lot of emphasis on Spartan customization, a facet of Halo that has grown increasingly important since the series' debut (especially after the arrival of Halo: Reach). In Halo Infinite, players have more control than ever before, with potentially thousands of armor, weapon, and vehicle customization possibilities. At the center of every Halo are the Spartans, so players will especially have a ton of options when personalizing their Spartan.

343i has included innumerable armor pieces and options in Halo Infinite, with more being added over time. In our ultimate guide to every piece of armor in Halo Infinite, we'll keep track of it all. Here's the complete list of armor in Halo Infinite.

What is armor customization in Halo Infinite?

Halo Infinite Multiplayer

In Halo Infinite multiplayer, players take control of a Spartan, an augmented human with increased speed, strength, and combat abilities. Spartans are infamous for the imposing figures they strike in their armor, and it's that armor that provides players with the greatest amount of customization in Halo Infinite. 343i and Xbox Game Studios have invested a lot of time to ensure the armor customization is as in-depth as possible, with hundreds of combinations already possible.

Firstly, Halo Infinite features a new Coatings system, a way for 343i to quickly release detailed and diverse "skins" for Halo Infinite's gear. Coatings feature all kinds of colors, textures, and patterns, and can drastically alter how your Spartan looks. And, thanks to changes to Halo Infinite's multiplayer, where players are now outlined in team colors instead of being forced to adapt to blue or red fully, your choice of color now remains in all Halo Infinite multiplayer matches. Halo Infinite's coatings system is quickly growing to massive proportions, so we've compiled a complete list of every Halo Infinite armor Coating.

Halo Infinite also lets players customize every weapon in Halo Infinite with Halo Infinite weapon Coatings, and the same applies to Halo Infinite vehicles as well! Of course, Halo Infinite's armor still retains its edge in customization with a number of other options.

Besides coatings, Halo Infinite lets players customize multiple aspects of their Spartan's armor, ranging from the base it's built upon (the Armor Core) to the color of the Visor, and many pieces including the Helmet, supplemental Chest pieces, hip attachments, and much more. There's truly a ridiculous amount of variety here, and the potential for additional Armor Cores, including special themed ones and Armor Kits (collections of armor pieces and customizations), raises the stakes even more.

Halo Infinite's armor can be unlocked via the Halo Infinite Battle Pass, bought from the Halo Infinite Shop, or possibly unlocked via in-game challenges and events like the Fractures: Tenrai event. We're keeping track of everything we see as the Halo Infinite multiplayer evolves over time.

Customization is one small part of a complete multiplayer experience, but Halo Infinite delivers in more ways than one. Halo Infinite is one of the best Xbox games you can play, especially when you take into consideration the robust Halo Infinite campaign.

Besides color Coatings, which we covered above, Halo Infinite provides a staggering 10 different ways to customize your Spartan's physical armor in multiplayer matches, with an 11th method to connect your Spartan to the wider Halo universe in new ways or let you apply a complete set of customizations in one fell swoop. This doesn't even include Emblems or Armor Effects, which add another dimension of personalization to your Spartan. That means there's a lot to cover here, and the list will only grow as Halo Infinite begins to drop new content updates and Seasons with additional customization options.

Without further ado, here is the complete list of armor and its customization options in Halo Infinite, and how to obtain them.

You can select the images next to armor and armor pieces to view the image in greater detail.

Armor Cores

As the name implies, Armor Cores sit at the center of your Spartan's armor and are the foundation upon which everything else is built. Your chosen Armor Core dictates the overall look of your Spartan, and can be pulled from the wider Halo universe, or even be non-canonical and expand beyond Halo's reach (like the Samurai-inspired armor we've seen in trailers).

By default, Spartans will be equipped with the modern Mark VII Armor Core, but additional variants will become available to players. Here is every Armor Core we know of in Halo Infinite.

Helmets

Second only to Armor Cores, the Helmet is one of the most immediately recognizable and prominent aspects of your Spartan's armor. Spartan Helmets can be military-grade hardware specifically designed from combat, or third-party solutions that provide unique perks and benefits to the Spartans who adapted them. Either way, they're a great way to set your Spartan apart from others immediately.

Spartan Helmets can support Helmet Attachments, which adds an additional way to customize. Here is every Helmet we know of in Halo Infinite.

Gloves

Players may not think about the Gloves their Spartan wears very often, but it's those Gloves that will appear on screen most often when picking up guns or equipment, dishing out melee attacks, or interacting with the environment. In Halo Infinite, you'll be able to customize your Spartan even down to the Gloves they wear.

Wrists

Halo Infinite Wrists upgrades may bring to mind some of Halo Infinite's equipment, like the repulsor or grappling hook, but Halo Infinite also lets you apply cosmetic armor pieces to your Spartan, which presumably provide a number of in-universe benefits you won't see in the game.

Here is every Wrist we know of in Halo Infinite.

Utility

Utility armor pieces in Halo Infinite, previously referred to as Hips, will seemingly be quite diverse, including utility belts, hip accessories (we've even seen concept art of swords!), and possibly thigh and upper leg upgrades as well. In Halo Infinite's first technical preview, a few Utilities were present but could not be unlocked or seen, but it wasn't until the second technical preview that we were able to see the first Utility armor pieces in action. These are supplemental upgrades, and should add plenty of variety to armor customization.

Here is every Utility we know of in Halo Infinite.

Knee Pads

Finally, Halo Infinite lets you apply the final touch to your Spartan's armor with Knee Pad variants, which offer a small measure of personalization to your armor core's mostly untouched leg armor. While Knee Pads are described as "supplemental," it does seem you're required to have Knee Pads installed on your Spartan's armor.

Here is every Knee Pad we know of in Halo Infinite.

Armor Kits

Armor Kits basically apply a predetermined set of sometimes-exclusive customizations (be it Coatings, pieces, or others) to your Armor Core, likely revolving around a theme. This means that players might be able to instantly become one of their favorite Halo Spartans like Jameson Locke, Sarah Palmer, and more, as long as they own the Armor Core that character uses. Armor Kits can also feature other themes as well for seasonal events and more.
