Cobra Armour?

Remember way back here, when we found mention of four different custom armour types in the Halo 3 beta?

Cobra, Regulator, Intruder and Ninja.

Well, since then Bungie have officially announced two of them in the shape of E.V.A. and C.Q.B. and mentioned that there will be more available in the final build of the game.

Is this (taken from the recent Gamepro and OXM cover art) one of them?

It’s definitely not C.Q.B. as the helmet is vastly different from the one pictured holding the Spartan Laser. In fact, it kinda looks like a Cobra to me.

What do you guys think?

Yeah i think it is Cobra armor

Comment by Master Tricks

Yeah, I definitely think that armor slightly resembles a cobra, but not the kind you’re thinking of… ever watch the G.I. Joe cartoons? Try looking at those Cobras!

Comment by Ray

looks more like a ninja style to me, with the bottom part of his mask darkened.

yh it definetely is i reckon the other two were proven right and so far alot form the beta codE has been proven right so i think that it all this.

i aslo noticed this as well and have allready posted it on other site with positive feedback

Behind the blue guy with the sword there is another blue guy with a gun that looks like a BR, but it does not have a scope on it! Could this be the assult carbine from halo custom edition 4 the pc. There were a sieries of maps made by the Custom Map Team That I think were made to mimic halo 3.

Comment by N Fox

Yeah that’s a different suit.
Could be cobra.
I wonder if the armour permutations will affect your HUD though…

First of all, sorry for the double post, but there is a good reason for it.
I have found leaked pictures of what may be ‘cobra’ armour and the ‘excavator’.


So what does everyone think?
I think it could be real, as the ‘cobra’ helmet looks similar to the helmet in the art (see the above picture).

Thanks man, I’m looking into this. It seems pretty legit to me if you look back at some of the earlier Halo stuff. Expect an update real soon.

Comment by 7th Columnist

Yeah like Ray said it does look like the crobra in G,I,Joe

Comment by Master Tricks

Comment by kenney727

look behind him, there’s another armor type..

Comment by Chris9099

I think the CQB (Close Quarters Battle )armor was the cobra. Repersenting the fact a Cobra is dangerous when it’s close but far away it can do little to harm you. This is likely a Ninja. This looks awesome thats for sure.

Comment by ghostbuddy

It is CObra or Ninja Armor for sure.

“a Cobra is dangerous when it’s close but far away it can do little to harm you”

I think THIS Cobra can do a lot of harm from far away.. (note the fricking TURRET in his hands…):P

Comment by bob

its recon you stupid asses

Comment by not cobra armor

Dude it is not recon at all because of the top part of the helmet is lower, and the side of the helmet is totally different, Maybe they did use the idea of the recon black part of his helmet (on yellow face thing) but it definitley looks like an amazing armour to wear if released

Comment by randomer

thats not recon. Cobra and Recon are different, if you look at a picture of recon and cobra, they’re different, dumb shits.

Comment by Synapse
