Xboxic reports: The Halo3 Recon Armor for some is one of the most sought after Armor Permutations because of its limited supply. The armor can only be unlocked by doing something that makes Bungie feel you deserve it, such as a Forge map, screenshot, or machinima (but this is a rarity). Now with the upcoming release of 'Halo3: ODST' by completing all 7 of the Vidmaster Achievements below - you will unlock your very own Recon Armor for use in Halo3 Multiplayer.
The Vidmaster Achievements require you to own both Halo3 and Halo3: ODST, although the latter will come shipped with a seperate Halo3 Multiplayer disc - one of the Vidmasters require you to have the Halo3 Campaign.
All 7 Vidmaster Achievements to obtain Recon Armour are listed below:
