Description[edit | edit source]
The origin of the Halo, its purpose, and its meaning have been theorized by players since the first Halo was given during the Closed Beta. One player asked THEE-I-DARE about the origin of the Halo during an interaction, and TID explained:
|“||THEY SAID YOU WENT TO ... A PRISON
ONCE INSIDE VOICES SECRETLY WATCH
IT IS THEY WHO GET YOU OUT, AFTER.
HE WILL HAVE MARKED YOU.
The "prison" THEE-I-DARE is referring to is Saturation Control. However, players who visit Saturation Control may not always receive a Halo, and players who have an interaction may get a Halo and never visit Saturation Control. Since receiving a Halo is a sign of marking from a particular Voice, this also means multiple Voices can award players a Halo in interactions. Players who receive multiple Halos from Voices will only see a singular Halo item in their Wardrobe.
Despite its emanating glow, the Halo is not visible to Lucids or The Shape. Players can wear the Halo without fear that it will compromise their ability to remain hidden from AI, but Stalkers will still be able to see the glow.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Before the introduction of the Wardrobe/Accessories Gallery category, the Halo was considered a Style & Color option. Equipping the Halo overrode any hairstyle the player equipped, making the player bald.
- The first Halos were given to players during the Closed Beta
