In Halo 4, I've notice in the armor customization after I got the novice commendation that now it shows an armor piece that can be mastered. Is it mastered to the maxumun rank of the commendation (like 5/7) or it's for each?

How many assists do you need to get to master the Sunspot?

  • Almost positive you need the max rank, so 7/7 or 5/5, but I can't confirm for sure so I won't post as an answer. My roommate is going for the armor you get for assassinations and you definitely need 5/5 for that (he's real close).

  • This is two different questions. The question about the number of assists for Sunspot visor should be a separate question from the one about the required rank for armor unlocks. Dec 4, 2012 at 22:34
  • this question have two questions, but they are kind related, so I changed it a little to try make it fit and be more clean.

It's the maximum. Even with the specializations, you have to reach the rank of 10 before you get the armor ability (armor equipment gets awarded at different levels).

I will check my Strategy Guide when I get home and update this answer on how many total assists is needed.

EDIT: Okay, big book of Halo 4 knowledge says

  • 25 assists for level 1, worth 250 XP
  • 50 assists for level 2, worth 500 XP
  • 250 assists for level 3, worth 750 XP
  • 500 assists for level 4, worth 1000 XP
  • 1000 assists for level 5, worth 2500 XP and grants you the sunspot visor.

Get playing War Games.


To unlock an armour piece, e.g like my Venator or Ranger armour, you need to complete the commendation to its maximum level.
Also here's a tip to get Ranger (combat opportunity) the way I did it was mainly going into battle, just before i died stick a grenade to an enemy and hit re-spawn now, you should get a kill from the grave, a hail mary and if your lucky maybe a killjoy, revenge or even double kill or more. this only works on infinity slayer or any games that let you respawn instantly
