If you boot up the list of Halo Waypoint Avatar Awards you will notice they have added a new T-Shirt to the list entitled "Halo: Reach T-shirt" - it is obtained by participating in the Halo: Reach Beta when it is made available.

I haven't got any pics of it just yet but will keep looking for it.

Pretty cool. Honestly the free avatar awards are the best part about Waypoint. In fact they were the only reason I downloaded the thing at all.

Question though, do you know if you have participate in the whole beta or can you get it just for playing it a couple days? My XBL expires May 5th and right now I don't know if I'll be able to afford to renew it.

By the sounds of it you simply have to play, similar to how you got an award just for booting up halo waypoint the first time.

I think that just booting it up and playing will be sufficient enough to get it - although I am not sure because the Award is associated with Waypoint and not ODST... so unless Waypoint knows that you have played it then I don't know how it will work...

Btw, here's proof of the update as some people are complaining that it isn't showing on their Xbox: http://www.xboxresource.com/forum/download/file.php?id=43

It could be based on if you play one match or a few, im guessing if you just have to play to get it, then it would be something small. like 5 hours or so, or 5 matches even.

I think it will probably give it to you just for playing the beta, i dont think it will have anything to do with how long or how much you play.

Spartan armour would be a sweet award! More special stuff for people who actually got ODST.

Update: I was able to get my Live renewed so I'll be able to play for the duration. Now just have to scrounge up enough to renew my Sirius radio.....

Is the only way to get the shirt is to play Beta? Or does it apply to Reach itself too when its released, I mean if its a limited time award that's all the better!

Judging by the description, it should be an exclusive only to the beta. But as we all know, sometimes exclusives become commonplace at a later date for a price (sometimes for free).

Something just doesn't add up though, first its a hoodie and its supposed to be a shirt, next the official halo waypoint twitter posted this image: http://tweetphoto.com/19367428

Why would they take a screenshot of a forum featuring the image, they would just post a proper picture of it.

The pocket on the front looks odd - other than that the rest of it looks fine and believable.

Meh... I'll wear it. Hopefully it should be more exclusive than most items.

Free is never a bad thing, even if I don't wear it, it'll be there if I get bored of my ODST suit :P

Beta is going to be amazing. Finally a break from MW2 and BF:BC2

On the latst Halo: Reach ViDoc, Luke Smith commented that there will be no freebies, just buy a T-shirt.

I recommend watching this video on bungie.net as it is really badass.
