So I'm at Wetwork specialization now...anyone know if the DMR you unlock after you get through a bunch of levels after that is any different than the standard one (other than appearance)?

I have it, it's just a skin. Each specialization has one for a different weapon.

Nah I wish I had double xp codes. It was more a rhetorical question but since you threw up some math I checked into it assuming I didn't do any challenges or got any bonus xp its around 10 games its happened twice to me already both times at reaching 44 I keep getting sent back to 43

So Xbox Rewards finally answered that Spartan Ops does count for the required multiplayer time for the points. Add that to your Matchmaking time to see what, if any, points you earned.

Between how long matches take to make, dropped matches, and restarted match searches, it felt like I played a lot more than just about 40 hours. I have no idea how anyone was able to hit 140 hours played, even with roommates or other players. It definitely should have just been matches, not hours.

And it's already over. The contest ran on UTC, which makes no sense, instead of EST, or even PST. It's like they wanted no one to get points from it.

yeah I just got a code for the Specialization Priority Alpha unlock. Wish I would have known because I would have traded with someone but I just redeemed it without checking. Not sure why I got this since it was supposed to be a LE bonus. Nt complaining though.

The Specialization Bonus was not for LE but for this Promo:

Probably old news, but I just saw this on the Dashboard:

Play Halo 4 online between launch and 11/20 and get early access to those customizations. Code will be sent on or about 11/30.


Funny how it says standard edition.

You have to reach SR 50 before you can use the specializations right?

Saw this on neogaf. If it's not forge maps, the only thing I can think of is a free classic map or something.

At least two or three classic maps, there really aren't enough 4v4 maps and much of what they have isn't that great.

While I'm glad they are going to add more maps, what is concerning is that obviously they didn't think it was an issue until now. Which is sad because it's so blatantly obvious that there's only like 4 maps for 4v4 gametypes and maps are getting consistently picked back to back. Makes me wonder how they could let something like that slip.

Either way I'm glad they are at least doing something about it. I'll start playing again once the new maps are in rotation I'm sure.

Aside from the useless character skins, emblems and weapons skin, I guess the special console owners didn't get immediate access to these specializations either?

It does seem weird that all of these specializations were just given away to anyone, but what about people who play later? Now they'll be maxed at Level 70 with only Wetwork and Operator to use. Seems like it would only hurt future interest in buying this game.

Not very well though out by 343 or Microsoft, whichever made this decision.

I forget where I read it, but it's supposed to be that the code is being sent out the first week of December, so if you don't get it by at least Friday you might need to contact someone. This might be an 'in waves' sort of e-mail.

Alright thanks man, I'll give it a few days and see. Just wanted to make sure I wasnt missing out. Even though I'm only SR-24 right now anyway, would still be nice to have access.

This is disappointing, since I bought the LE. Had I known what the code was for (the e-mail just said it was a "gift"), I would've sold it on eBay instead of redeeming what I already have. They seem to be going for around $20.
