After you reach SR 50 in Halo 4 you get to choose a specalization such as Wetwork, Operator, Stalker, etc and these levels go through from 1 - 10. Once you have your chosen unlock, do they grant you any special abilities or is it just armor? I have the full set of Venator armour with a fairly distinctive visor and would like to keep it unless there are other benefits.

It's quite overwhelming the amount of customization and unlocks in Halo: 4.

Yes the specializations unlock unique bonus armor mods. They also get an armor, armor variant, weapon skin, and a set of visors.

The armor mods provide the following abilities.

  • Engineers get to see weapon drops early
  • Operators reduce the effects of plasma pistols on vehicles they drive, and reduce the chances of getting hijacked.
  • Pathfinders reduce weapon heat-up on turrets and move faster when carrying them.
  • Pioneers get experience bonuses.
  • Rouges have increased weapon stability when under fire.
  • Stalkers get the person who killed them last lit up on their HUD
  • Trackers get better ordnance drop options.
  • Wetwork allows for reduced stealth detection from motion sensors and Promethean vision, and they get faster assassination animations.

From the wiki.

  • Ah, seems the Wiki gets updated quicker than I tend to give it credit for. It says the player must choose one to advance through before they can select another so after you get one to rank 10 you can unlock another? And another until you have them all and all abilities?

  • Yeah, I believe that you can complete all of the specializations, if you have the time to reach SR 130.
