Walkthrough

Tactical/Support Upgrades

Making an appearance for the first time in the Halo series are the brand spanking new Tactical Packages and Support Upgrades. These are reminiscent of the perks seen in the Call of Duty games but have less of an impact on the game. Instead they provide small, useful passive abilities that will increase your efficiency during multiplayer gameplay. Players are able to equip one of each type once the ability to equip them has been unlocked.

You will unlock the use of Tactical Packages at Spartan Rank 7 and Support Upgrades at Spartan Rank 12. Once unlocked, you’ll be able to unlock and purchase additional abilities as you move through the ranks.
