Halo Infinite devs have exclusive multiplayer armor with blue flames

Halo Infinite devs have exclusive armor items with blue flame effects in the game's multiplayer mode.

Just earlier today, a 343 community support and engagement co-ordinator on Halo Infinite posted the screenshot below, depicting his in-game Spartan adorned with a helmet sporting blue flames. When a commenter asked how they attained this special helmet, the developer replied that it's actually a special item only available for those who worked at 343 on Halo Infinite.


It's a really nice touch for Halo Infinite developers, to make them stand out from the crowd (or put a target on their backs!). It springs to mind how Respawn gives Apex Legends developers special in-game badges saying "Dev," to denote the fact that players are actually working alongside someone who helped the develop the very game they're playing.

What will be interesting to see is whether any Halo Infinite players are able to obtain this exclusive armor through slaying members of the dev team in multiplayer matches. For those who aren't aware, this feature actually has some precedence in multiplayer games, to the point where Halo Infinite developer 343 actually introduced an achievement in Halo: The Master Chief Collection which was only obtainable by killing a member of the 343 dev team in a multiplayer match.

naterocks500 Imagine taking the most loved armor effect from halo 3 and reach and making it impossible to attain in a future halo title with a focus on customization of your spartan...

Could just be an emblem or chest piece but no, it's actually one of the best armor effects from the Reach era


It really isn't a big deal. I don't care they have it because it's specifying who works at 343i. Halo 3 had the same flames exclusives for a while, and people felt good when they see exclusives they can't yet unlock.
You can unlock a flame helmet in Infinite and you're mad because it's blue, and that you could previously?
Who truly cares

You know the flame has always been developer only / given out by developers and was only unlocked for the general player base in halo mcc right? So it has essentially always been impossible to get.


Wrong. Blue flame helemt effect was obtainable in Halo Reach via signing up to the Bungie app for a limited time

343 will never meet the fans expectations like Bungie did. Microsoft "Money" Studios is too incompetent to manage the franchise.

You are wrong....you kill a player of a player of a player... who was in contact with a 343 Employee in game at one point in time.
