How to unlock additional Specializations after SR-70:



For those who don't care to watch youtube videos for ridiculously easy tutorials however, here's a txt version:

(2) Sign into said xbox with your gamertag (via recovery/flash drive).
(3) Start a new specialization. Play a game to ensure it took.
(4) Now complete specialization (1-10) on your own xbox.
(5) Repeat steps 1-4 until SR130.
It's assumed that you have someone else whom you can trust and has unlocked the specializations on their console. It's possible they can do this entirely on their end as well, should you provide them your information.

edit: Why This Works (licenses)

Each downloadable content comes with two licenses; a profile license and a console license. If you install DLC on a console, it is locked to that console. Attached to your gamertag (profile) is a license for the DLC. So if you were to take your gamertag to a new console and re-download the DLC, it will only be accessible to you and no one else on the console (assuming they haven't purchased the DLC prior). The same is vice versa with the console license; any gamertag on a console that has the DLC purchased can access the DLC, but not if they were played on a different console.

edit #2: hopefully those in Europe have a friend who's been given a code.

Nice trick. I got spec. code day 1 so I have no use for this but nice for others that need. At first I was thinking Ban but it makes sense, as long as you don't mess around with trading licenses.

Doesn't work for stuff like that, I'm afraid.

You'll have access to it all, but only while using their console.

Didn't the last patch unlock all the Halo profile license and change it to console license? If that is true then you just ask your friend (who has redeemed the specialization code) to transfer license to your console and use it for free and don't need to repeat.

You can only license transfer once every 3-4 months -- when you do this, I believe it transfers all console licenses tied to that console; I don't think the hypothetical friend would want to be without all of their console licenses for several months. That was how I came to understand it when I transferred licenses from my old 360 to my new 360 Slim.

I don't think the console license is only tied to one console. My party often share their license on DLCs and GOD to each other and play together without having any problem, but yeah we still need to wait 3-4 months to transfer something new - and at lest my friends are not hypothetical lol.

Ive had the ability to go all the way to SR-130 since launch and I'm still at 80 something... I just can't see the point in going through this much effort for it, but then again I don't enjoy the matchmaking nearly as much as even Reach, post armor lock nerf anyway... INEVER thought I would say I enjoy Reach more than another Halo title, but its matchmaking is currently superior to Halo 4. I enjoy customs but nobody ever wants to play customs

And it's still early in the trilogy! Let's see whether or not they learn from Halo 4.
