It was only a matter of time before modders played around with Halo Reach PC. Modders have created a new character mod that unlocks all character customizations in the recently release Halo game on PC.
The character mod in question is created by ‘0sedax’ who has worked on other notable mods as for popular games as well. The mod only works when Halo Reach is launched with EAC disabled. EAC is the East Anti-Cheat system used in the game.
The game features as anti-cheat bypass option that allows modders to experiment and tweak the game to their liking.
We’re still working to improve this down the road, but for now you will have an option when you launch to bypass anti-cheat”, developer 343 Industries wrote on the Halo Reddit. “This will allow you to play around with campaign and customs but not allow you to play any matchmade games. I highly suggest making a copy/backup of anything you modify so you’ll be able to switch back and forth easily
