Support Upgrades are gameplay enhancements featured in Halo 4. They are different from Armor Abilities in that that they are passive and cannot be exchanged for another during a life. Each one is unlocked and activated when selecting a custom loadout for the player before a match begins or during respawn time.
List of Support UpgradesEdit

Ordnance drop locations appear on the HUD about 12 seconds before they actually drop.

Increases how long a mounted weapon can fire before overheating and increases the user's movement speed when carrying a weapon that is detached from a turret.

Increases the range of the motion sensor.
Steadies your weapon while being struck by incoming fire by decreasing the effect of flinch.
The time it takes for the user's shield to start charging after taking damage is reduced from 6 seconds to 5 seconds. This Support Upgrade was added in the August 19 Title Update and, as with the other content included in the update, cannot be used in Spartan Ops.

User can still be killed by being ejected from a height, being ejected out of the map, or getting crushed by the vehicle wreckage falling on top of the user. This Support Upgrade was added in the August 19 Title Update and, as with the other content included in the update, cannot be used in Spartan Ops.
