In Halo 4, when you rank up, you receive a certain amount of Spartan Points. (I believe it's one per level, but I don't know that for sure) This "currency" is then used to buy weapons, armor abilities, grenades, etc. for use in customized loadouts.

My question is are there enough Spartan Points gained by getting to level 50 to unlock everything? Or will it eventually come down to my preference as to what weapons/upgrades to unlock and use?

I have to imagine they give you enough points to unlock all of the various upgrades. – DesignerGuy Nov 7 '12 at 19:23

Based on this post at Se7enSins and my personal experience, I think my initial calculation was slightly off.

First, the question is how many SP will you get at maximum. By my calculations the answer is 51 (leveling to 50), including 1 SP for level 1 and 1 SP for completing level 50.

Based on the IGN wiki, it would cost 51 SP (noting an error on their part, as the AR costs 0 SP, not 1) to cover all of the "Loadout" upgrades. So at exactly level 50, you will have enough SP.

Nothing costs SP besides the loadout unlocks. I have now leveled past 50 and can confirm that you can unlock everything that costs SP once you hit 50, and you do not get SP for Specializations (because you've already unlocked everything).

So, at level 50, you have enough SP to unlock everything.

The armor unlocks (at least thus far) don't cost SP to unlock. When you hit the Spartan Rank (or complete the commendation required) you unlock them for free. – agent86 Nov 8 '12 at 17:37
I didn't realize that leveling the specializations would award SP. It will take until a couple levels into my first spec until I can unlock everything, but I think I can probably live without some of the less useful loadout upgrade. Thanks. – khrave Nov 8 '12 at 20:04

Maybe a little more detail on what it is you linked? – Coronus Apr 2 '13 at 17:44
You can link inline images like this. – deutschZuid Apr 2 '13 at 18:33

There actaully are three extra ones upon reaching rank 130 with unlocking all loadout options

Would you care to expand on your answer? Are you saying you get 3x more Spartan Points when you reach SR130? – tombull89 Jan 7 '13 at 13:12
