Halo Reach is only a few days away, and we all know that multiplayer is going to be where the real excitement is. Much like everyone fought over earning the hayabusa armor as soon as possible, there's bound to be new levels of customization that will help friends and enemies reach various levels of 'badass'. Some of them we've experienced through beta or in game footage, others we'll only get to see at launch. These next few are some you can start earning now, by playing through some olders Halo titles. The only catch is that these unlockables do require a few other details (such as reaching set career milestones, or other Halo Reach achievements).
Still, it's something to work on/look forward to for a couple days. It's nothing too far out for anyone to accomplish, and there's something to be said about getting some additional perks for being a Halo fan throughout the years. Though naturally some of the armor does have Reach prerequisites, once you've unlocked the base getting the extra customization tools should be instant. At least, assuming everything is up and running day one. Even still, achievements are very earnable offline, and what better way to brush up on Halo than a quick run on legendary with three other people.
