Halo 4 is an Xbox 360 game developed by 343 Industries. It’s one of the most popular first-person shooting games available on the market. Halo 4 is the latest franchise or installment of this game series. With Halo 4, there’s a new story, new set of enemies, newly devised splinter group, etc. But one of the best new features that gaming enthusiasts have been excited about is the set of character specializations. With this game, there are 8 possible specializations to choose from.
How to Unlock Specializations
Unfortunately, specializations are not available to players right away. In order to unlock them you must first reach the rank of SR50. Once you achieve this rank you’ll be given the option to select a specialization. Keep in mind that once you choose one you’re stuck with it for the next 10 levels. Every 10th level after SR50 you can choose to switch specializations (if you want) until you master them all.
Wetworks are optimized for stealth operations. They are quick in both movement and in combat or action. They are the Halo 4’s modern day ninjas. They work silently and hidden from plain sight. The Stealth Support Upgrade is unlocked after your Wetwork character achieves level 10. With the Stealth mod, the Wetwork produces quieter footsteps or sprints, faster assassination graphics, and the character does not produce heat signals but merely a negligible outline.
Pioneers are optimized for the best adaptation to unchartered or hostile maps and territories. But more than anything else, this specialization is loved by gaming enthusiasts because of its Fast Track Support element or mod. Pioneers earn more experience or XP than all other average Spartans which makes leveling up faster.
Engineers are optimized for repair, subversion, and reconstitutions of various kinds of weapon and technology available on the game. Another advantage of this specialization is its Drop Recon mod which allows the engineer to learn and be alerted of item drops earlier than other characters.
Trackers are optimized for long-range target or enemy tracking. The Tracker specialization features the Requisition mod. This provides the ability for the character to choose better weapons and other items that are available on the area.
Rogues are optimized to be a one-man combat character. Rogues can endure operations including combats on their own. They are equipped with the Stability Support mod providing better handling of equipment and more accurate shots even on a long-range.
Stalkers are optimized for covert missions where your character could stay close to your target without getting noticed. Another great ability of this specialization comes from the Nemesis Armor mod which allows the character to spot his targets or enemies even after dying or after re-spawning.
Pathfinders are optimized for gun combat even when deployed to unknown areas or when faced with unfamiliar enemies. This character’s Gunner Support mod prolongs the overheat range or time for weapons and makes cool-down faster for improved gunning or combat ability. This specialization also allows the character to move at normal speed even while carrying a detached arm or weapon.
Operators are optimized for driving or vehicle handling. They are adept when it comes to navigating the land, the sea, the air, and even in space. With its Wheelman mod, the character could quickly recover from a charged plasma pistol or EMP shots. This support also provides quicker recharging or recovery of the vehicle used and reduces the downtime it suffers for every hit.
