Updated Halo 4 Pre-order Exclusive

by Retired: Senior Social Media Specialist ‎09-05-2012 10:30 AM - edited ‎09-05-2012 01:27 PM (22,016 Views)

Waaay back in May, I posted a blog on our Halo 4 pre-order exclusive and, well, that is SO 4 months ago.


Yes, we are still offering the Exclusive Raptor Armor but, to quite literally top off the deal, we're tagging on... wait for iiiiiiit... the Deadeye helmet!

Halo 4 Deadeye helmet

And just because you asked so nicely, here's some updated eye-candy of the Raptor Armor, now rendered with an additional dimension.  Gives it a little more pop.

Venator Raptor Armor

Halo Infinity Multiplayer will revert players to default colors in some competitive modes. You'll receive one download code for the armor and one for the helmet. Download codes will arrive via e-mail on or around release date. Valid e-mail address required. While supplies last.

Also remember, Reward Zone Gamers Club Unlocked members are eligible to receive a $20 Reward Zone certificate for pre-ordering Halo 4.

I pre-ordered this awhile back, and on my order status it just shows the Raptor skin bonus.


Question is, do I need to cancel my order and re-order it to get the helmet, or while it come anyway? I don't want to miss out on this. Smiley Tongue

Hi Jer,


I will actually check on that but my gut says yes. Stay tuned!

Alright Jer,


Although you won't see the helmet add to your order, we will still send the code to you after the game releases because you definitely deserve it for pre-ordering early. I realize this isn't exactly the most visible process on your end but I can assure you we indeed have it planned out.

Works for me man, thanks a lot!

Hi, I am having the same problem as jer, i had pre-ordered halo 4 before the helmet came out and i was wondering if i can still get the helmet or if i have to cancel and reorder, or if i have to let someone know so that they can email it to me when the game launches

Hey Cve77,


If you really want to see that helmet item attached to your order, you certainly can cancel and re-order but we are planning to fulfill both for those who had existing preorders as well.

Hi Esteban,


The preorder codes for Halo 4 will be delivered via email and there will be two of them, one for the helmet, one for the armor. As for November 6, we will be hosting midnight openings and you'll be able to find a participating stores list here when we get closer to release date:

what i dont get is do you need to be a member to get the pre-orders? and will i have to give them my email on the day i get it or midnight release?

Thanks for providing the pre-order. Included in the publicity tour for the forthcoming “Halo 4” video game, a real-life “Warthog,” a futuristic jeep-like automobile in the games has been produced. The vehicle is being shown off at this year's SEMA show. I read this here: SEMA show to feature real-life Warthog from Halo series.

anothony34 - For the helmet and armor preorder content, nope, you do not have to be a Reward Zone member or any other kind of member to qualify.  That only pertains to our "Victory can be preordered" promotion which earns you $20 in Reward Zone points for preordering and purchasing Halo 4 and being a Reward Zone Gamers Club Unlocked member.

alright thanks

Hi I ordered the Limited Edition Halo 4 Xbox 360. Will I be able to pick it up on Tuesday Morning at the location that I chose? Also they said that I should be getting an email reguarding my order to let me know when it is ready but I want to pick it up tuesday morning. Can you assist me with this.

@freakingamazing - Depending on what shipping method you selected you very well may be playing it on release day tomorrow. We are looking good to have Express Shipping orders delivered tomorrow.


@ChrisMWallace - Yep, you should be good to pick up your Limited Edition preorder tomorrow morning. You'll likely see an email update soon.  I should note also that a small number of our stores are experiencing weather-related shipping delays on the Limited Edition but those stores are contacting their preordering customers so you'll hear from them if that's the case.

I selected expidited shipping and it has not even shipped yet so I know I won't get it until at least wed Smiley Sad

I preordered the game obviously but have yet to receive my DLC codes. You know come to think of it, I never received my codes for Gears of War 3 either. I forgot and gave up on the email coming through.

I don't want that to be the case with this though so what can I (or you) do to speed up the process? Game is in hand.

I purchased 2 games of halo 4 preorder, picked up the games at midnight went home played a little. I went to sleep woke up in the morning and still havent recieved the codes for the armor skin and helmet . Whats the timeline for the email to be sent ?

I haven't received my armor codes for pre-ording. My order # is {removed per forum guidelines}. I don't see them listed on my order but you can see I ordered on Nov 5th.

I've yet to receive an email with my Halo 4 pre-order bonus codes, it also is not in my spam folder. Has anyone else not yet received theirs?

For those of you wondering where your preorder codes are, we have nice handy post detailing everything you need to know about them and providing instruction on what to do if you haven' received them yet here:

@darkmotives - I'm not seeing your Halo 4 order at first glance using the email address you have registered on this forum but I realize it has likely arrived by now. Let me know if you still have concerns surrounding the delivery timing on that.


@Juniorx3 - I'm sure you've done so already but I would recommend working with your local store management team to find out what the plan was on their Halo 4 Limited Edition stock. I know there were some weather-related shipping delays in certain areas so that might have been the cause.
