The CQB in the Halo 3 Beta, why wasn't it this shiny it the finished version?

For those born without a sense of humour, Halopedia has an article on CQB.

CQB is a pretty sick helmet in Halo 3 and Halo: Reach, it was commonly used by noobs but Bungie shunned them by creating Halo Waypoint.

It was a default armour Pervutation in Halo 3 but then Bunghole decided to make it unlockable in Reach by doing the following steps:

  • Beat a set on firefight on Legendary without dying
  • Get over 9000 achievements
  • Download Halo waypoint
  • Use armour lock 1337 times
  • Get killed by a Moa on easy mode
  • Drink 2 barrels of Gruntiness without getting full, tired and pausing in one breath
  • Beat the Sun in a staring contest


  • It had one of the best shoulder pads in Halo 3 and the best chest, but Bungie removed both and only kept the helmet.
