From The Archives: The Screenshot That Earned Me Recon Armor In Halo 3

Way back when Halo 3 was the game to play on Xbox 360, Bungie started giving away their fabled Recon armor set to players who submitted screenshots to their weekly competitions.

Week after week I submitted silly screenshots, each week hoping to receive this special armor.

Well, one week I logged onto Bungie.net after school (yes, that’s how young I was at the time…) and saw I had a new private message.

The message from Bungie, alerting me that I had just won Recon armor.

Of course, I immediately logged on and messaged *all of my friends* (throwback to the good ole “M2AF!” messages) letting them know I had something super cool to show them in Halo 3: Recon Armor.

The screenshot I submitted that ultimately was the winner that week?

The Halo 3 screenshot that earned me the fabled Recon armor.

Just a spartan break dancing.

Thanks Bungie for creating this memory over a decade ago.
