Halo 4: Raider Armor Unlock Guide

Thanks to sleuthing Halo 4 fanatics, you can now unlock armor and more through Halo: Waypoint with these hidden glyph codes. In Halo 4′s Spartan Ops missions, in Waypoint videos, and even in newsletters from 343 Studios, players have been finding secret glyphs. These secret glyphs, once correctly translated, spell out words that can then be input as codes into the classified section of Halo: Waypoint.

Appreciate The Codes. Hope They Work

The Spartan Ops Missions has to be completed on the day u put in the codes

I’m new to this site, but these codes are legit :)

If there are any requirements, keep in mind;

I’ve completed Legendary (Solo)
Got all terminals

For the raider codes to work you need to complete the first 3 spartan ops episodes. Episode 1 for code 1 etc.

I started to follow this stuff over on the Waypoint forums not to long ago and it’s all very intriguing, mysterious and compelling. From what I’ve read and understood one of the prerequisites is to complete all the chapters in the fist episode of Spartan Ops.

Although the thread is 200+ pages it’s well worth it if you can spare the time.

Jst unlockd all the raider armor. The prerequisites are to complete land grab, sniper alley, and the challenge on any difficulty. This armor is frickin sweet! Thx SO MUCH:)


On November 12, 2012 at 2:04 am

to be able to unlock the raider armour sections you must complete certain missions in spartan ops


On November 12, 2012 at 1:45 pm

You have to complete the first three spartan ops missions. This armor is SWEET! thx guys

What about the Alpha Halo Archive ones?

I never played the Halo Anniversary but my friend showed me some of the codes but when I entered them it didn’t work.

Do I have to find the terminals in the Halo Anniversary game first or am I entering it wrong?


On November 19, 2012 at 1:20 am

Thanks for posting!

For the Raider Armor I had to complete the first 3 chapters of Spartan Ops Episode 1 Solo before I could unlock the codes. [I had previously completed Legendary Coop, but could only unlock the Raider Shoulders for some bizarre reason, so I went back through the first 3 chapters solo, then it worked for the rest of the armor.]

I couldn’t unlock Oni 1 until I had unlocked Wiseguy.

In order to unlock Wiseguy I had to watch all 7 terminals first (I’d already found them days ago) before unlocking.

Unfortunately, we haven’t found your super-rare helmet yet — but I did update the page with even more fan-deciphered codes for Halo Waypoint. I’m sure more are incoming, so keep checking back! We’ll try to stay up-to-date on the newest unlockable codes.

on the requiem archive 2 do you have to do the legendary missions or can you just type in the code?#


On January 23, 2013 at 3:31 am

I beat episode 1-6 on legendary episode six was so easy


On February 11, 2013 at 5:58 am

I have found the terminals in Halo CE Anniversary but the codes aren’t working for me. I know the codes are legit because I compared them to the videos in Waypoint. Not sure what my problem is.


On January 3, 2014 at 8:40 pm
