    In Reach, there are 2 chests that are have valid entries, but are not included in the armory listing, These chests are UA/Base Security and UA/Multi-Threat.

    The chests are available with a grenade belt via Waypoint (UA/Base Security [W]) and Preorder DLC (UA/Multi-Threat [W]), respectively, but IMO that grenade belt looks tacky :tongue:

    Edit: At some point, GPD injecting got patched. So the only way to obtain these is via JTAG or by following this image: (Search your Service Tag in Unicode) (Your screen will look nothing like this.)

    To make things easier, set all your armor to default except for your chest, which should be HP/Halo.

    Any way to do this to your own account if you're on a jtag, or does it have to be a new account for it to work online.

    Why certainly. You will need the following CPGD plugin:
    http://www.mediafire.com/?yogu6ur7061t9wz
    And just go to the Chest chunk and swap any Entry value with 101 (Base Security) or 102 (Multi-Threat)
    Afterward just look for it in the armory and buy/equip it.

    And it works on any sort of account new or old as long as there is at least 400cR available on it.

    I have upwards of 5 million, so that works. It reverted me back to default when I signed on though. Edit: it was the xex I was using, worked fine with an unedited one.

    Thanks for the work on the plugin.

    I was about to get offline right after my last MM game today, and I got a message from someone on my team asking how I got the chest piece with no grenade belt. I did not expect anyone to notice at all, that surprised me.

    Oh lawd. :biggrin:

    The point of this release WAS for retail xboxes.
    Just follow the tutorial in this thread: http://www.se7ensins.com/forums/topic/304661-how-to-get-100-complete-campaign/ except with one of my GPDs.

    If you connect to Live afterwards your achievements will download to it, and when you go in Reach, your rank and related info will download to it.
    So basically, all you lose in the end is your current armor, colors, emblem, and service tag selections. All of which (might want to keep the chest lol) can be changed back if you so choose.

    Edit: Also you will lose your campaign progress/missions. D:

    Very nice find. +rep
    If I wasn't so scared of getting banned as a result, I would definitely mod these on my profile. For those who are unsure though, I think you'll be fine since Bungie isn't handing out bans anymore (343 would have to do that) and they probably won't do anything about it =)

    Same here, I'd mod this if I didn't have the feeling that 343i will eventually ban players for modding it. I'll wait a month or two and if no one receives a ban for it, then I'm going to have to try it out for myself.
