To get the newly announced armor, you will need to do more than just good. In fact, only the top 100 players in the world will be given access to it.
The armor is a gold plated version of the bloodthirster armor, which can only be unlocked by receiving killstreaks within a multiplayer game. On top of earning the awesome gold plate armor set, the top 100 players will also be given the Grand Master name tag.
Unfortunately, Sledgehammer Games have not revealed all of the details about this new armor yet, so we're unsure how the developer will rank the top 100 players. Whether or not it will be based on kill/death ratio, top played time, or simply the top 100 players in the global leaderboards, we're not sure, but we'll be sure to let you know as more details are revealed.
As for the release date for the new Grand Master armor, once again we aren't sure, but we expect Sledgehammer Games will release more information about it fairly soon.
What do you think about this new Grand Master armor? Do you think it is exciting that Sledgehammer are giving players an incentive to rank up in the leaderboards, and do you think they should offer lower tiered items for those who can't make it to the top 100?
