A nameplate is a small icon that is displayed in multiplayer lobbies next to a player's Gamertag. It can be customized depending on certain requirements. Although nameplate emblems have existed since Halo 2 and Halo 3 in the form of small Seventh Column symbols or the Bungie logo, they have not been customizable until Halo: Reach. First mentioned early 2010, when Halo 2[1] was being shutdown and again when Halo PC users were told to keep their CD codes.[2] Nameplates are no longer changeable due to Bungie not having control over Halo anymore.
