In the land of pre-order exclusives, GameStop is coming out ahead of the pack with the Spartan Locke Hunter Class Armor set. The bonus is available to US pre-orders and will be available at launch to use in multiplayer. The armor is purely aesthetic and won’t impact performance in matches. Here’s what you can expect:
- HUNTER-Class Armor: Sophisticated and lethal, HUNTER-class armor incorporates Watershed Division’s latest warfighting technology.
- HUNTER-Class Helmet: Though still considered a prototype implementation, the HUNTER’s sensor suite enhances situational and threat awareness.

The trailer itself features Spartan Locke expertly using the new Spartan Abilities introduced in Halo 5: Guardians as he hunts for the Master Chief. Plowing through Covenant enemies, we see the use of the Thruster Pack, Ground Pound, Spartan Charge, Clamber and a new enhanced ODST-like visor mode. It seems that the Covenant, in addition to the UNSC are hunting the Master Chief as well. For what purpose we may have to wait until the games release on October 27th.
