Awesome Crossover Idea Puts a Halo Spin on Fallout’s Power Armor

Fan-made designs for Halo Infinite armor draw inspiration from a variety of Brotherhood of Steel and Enclave power armor designs from Fallout.

Awesome Crossover Idea Puts a Halo Spin on Fallout's Power Armor

A Halo Infinite player with a clear affinity for the power armor in the Fallout franchise has designed a set of suits that would let Spartans fit right into post-apocalyptic America. These five different Halo Infinite armor types draw from different designs that both Brotherhood of Steel and Enclave members make use of throughout the Fallout games.

In general, the Brotherhood of Steel and the Enclave use different sets of power armor, with the Enclave's suits having generally better stats overall. The history of the Brotherhood of Steel can be traced back to original Fallout, where it served as a faction that may offer assistance to the Vault Dweller, but won't actually join them in combat. The Enclave doesn't show up until Fallout 2, where it serves as the primary antagonist faction for the Chosen One.

The impressive designs introduced by Reddit user LuminousCactuz are were mostly hand-drawn with a bit of photo manipulation thrown in, and they pay homage to every set of power armor in Fallout 4, except the ones used by raiders. That means there are three Brotherhood sets of armor (the T-45, T-51, and T-60), as well as two suits of Enclave design (Advanced Power Armor Mark I and Mark II). Just like with traditional Fallout power armor (before the games implemented paint jobs), all five sets carry a relatively monochromatic gray color scheme, with the exception of the suit designed to resemble the T-51, which has a militaristic green across the upper chest and shoulder pieces.

A Fusion of Halo and Fallout

None of these suits of Halo armor fully recapture the exact specifications of the designs introduced in the Fallout games, but that doesn't seem to be the artist's intent. Instead, they appear as more of a fusion of the two styles, removing some of the T-Series' and Advanced Power Armor's bulk in favor of a more sleek design akin to armor Halo's Master Chief might wear. Most of the helmets actually bear striking resemblance to their Fallout counterparts, save for the reflective yellow eye slots, but the details are a little more subtle in the suits' bodies, particularly around the joints, where the Spartan influences are more obvious.

These five designs seem pretty popular with the Reddit audience, as they've garnered a lot of praise for the artist. One person commented that these designs could have come "straight out of the Halo Infinite shop," while several others have expressed an interest in more Halo Infinite crossover content, with Doom and Gears of War being the games on the minds of some commenters who want to see more crossover designs.
