  • The Silver (in Halo: Reach) and Frost (in Halo 4) visors can be used to replicate the true ODST helmet, and they contain a description implying that it is the color of the ODST's. The Blue colored option is more accurate according to Halo 3: ODST, however. Also, you have to use the Black visor to replicate the Halo: Reach ODST helmet, meaning you can use three different colored visors to complete the ODST look, depending on what game you want to match.
  • The Gold visor can be used to replicate both the Mark V and Mark VI helmet.
  • It seems that some campaign characters (specifically Jun-A266 and Jorge-052) have their own visor color of reddish-orange. This visor color is not available in the armory.
    • Bungie stated that there originally was going to be a Red visor color that would be unlocked at Inheritor, but it was cut a month before Reach was released.
  • The Black visor's description quotes Henry Ford, saying:  "You can have it in any color you want... as long as it's black."
  • There are many fake YouTube videos showing "secret" visor colors.
  • The player must have at least 435,000 cR and must be a Colonel to own every visor color.
  • If wearing the Default visor color with green armor, the visor color appears golden. This is most noticeable with the Grenadier helmet. This may be a reference to Halo: Combat Evolved as the Master Chief was completely green, whereas in the later games his armor's color has darkened to sage.
