Halo Infinite has finally been released, and the game is already seeing the arrival of a series of restricted time events called Fracture: Tenrai. The first wave of Fracture: Tenrai events carried a chance for players to open a selection of free samurai-themed cosmetics, including an Armor Core. The second wave will apparently bring the new Iron Eagle Armor Core to the game, and one Halo Infinite fan has accommodatingly gathered each leaked image associated with the Armor Core so far.
While the Yoroi Armor Core is clearly samurai-themed, the Iron Eagle Armor Core has a rounder, more solid design. Some fans have observed that the new armor resembles the thick, adjusted plates of the power armor found in the Fallout franchise.
Reddit user Haijakk gathered each leaked image of the Iron Eagle Armor Core that has been shared so far into a single post. Apparently, the new Fracture: Tenrai occasion will give players a decision between at least five protective cap designs- - a default cycle one, one that resembles a hard hat, one that looks like a Stormtrooper's cap, one that resembles a Roman centurion's cap, and one that looks like the head of a mythical cyclops. It seems that they will either come in various colors or gamers will be able to customize their colors.
Haijakk also shared three full-self-perceptions of the Iron Eagle Armor Core, each of which hammers in the resemblance to the notable Fallout power armor. The primary differences seem to be that the Iron Eagle Armor Core is significantly less battered, rusted, or piecemeal than the power armor found in the wasteland. Instead, the leaks show an armor design that combines thick, adjusted plates with accessories- - including gloves and pouches- - that seem to be inspired by current military gear. Be that as it may, the Fallout inspiration shows through with regards to the Iron Eagle Armor Core's left arm, which appears to be a skeletal metal prosthetic.
As of writing, apparently other fans have a ton to say about the Iron Eagle Armor Core and what it represents. Several users answered to the post by theorizing that Microsoft could add more Armor Cores inspired by other properties to Halo Infinite. Some suggestions included Armor Cores inspired by Doom, Dishonored, StarCraft, Gears of War, and Overwatch. These options could add a great deal of new armor customization opportunities to Halo Infinite. Nonetheless, other users expressed reluctance to see the Halo franchise start incorporating crossover armors.
