The big Season 3 refresh recently came to Halo: The Master Chief Collection, and developer 343 Industries has lots more in store for the game down the road. The studio has outlined some of what’s coming in a new blog post, and it includes a never-before-released Halo: Reach helmet and piece of armor, as well as some redacted content that we’re very curious about.
The GRD helmet was cut from the original Halo: Reach, but 343 is bringing it back for MCC with the Season 4 update in the future.
The helmet was used in promotional material for Halo: Reach’s Defiant map pack DLC, but the developer had to cut it due to time/resource constraints. It is a very unique-looking helmet, as you can see in the image below. As for “AKIS,” we don’t know what this means, but 343 said the developer will share more details in a “deeper dive” later on.
