Armor, Emblems & Gamercards


Armor Watcher is the #1 place to go to when you want to check out gamercards or in-game armor!

View your Halo 4 and Halo: Reach armor and show it off to your friends, or get some nostalgia with the Halo 3 armor generators, where you can put together your spartan just like you could back in Halo 3.

You can also get your Halo 4 and Halo 5 gamercards here for forum signatures and the like, with the all new Gamercard Generator!
Need an image of your emblem? No problem, we support emblems too, and you can find yours by searching with your gamertag, or you can make one yourself with the generator!


Pardon Our Dust

*blows the dust right in your face*
Welcome back, strangers and old friends! It's no secret that this website has seen quite a bit of neglect over the past few years, with more and more random bits breaking every now and then. But that neglect ends now!
I've been hard at work patching up the holes here and there, as best as I can anyways. 
Things like the Halo 5 Gamercards and the Halo 4 Avatars are back up and running! On the armory side of things you can now (finally) retrieve your Halo 5 Spartan and Emblem (only a couple of years late, I know). And the Halo 4 and Halo Reach spartan and emblems are working again as well. At least until 343i pulls the API rug on me again...
Additionally, I've been generally making the rest of the site functional again as well, including accounts, profiles, and the like. It's still not amazing, but for some reason 1330 people decided to register an account over the years despite the warnings for bugs and lack of functionality. It's nothing huge but it does mean a lot to me that so many of you even bothered to try that! 🥰
There's still a lot of work to do on this little corner of the internet, as I've been building it all from scratch over the years. No WordPress or anything like that behind the scenes. It's been a hell of a learning project, but luckily I'm never really done with learning! 
There's also a few other projects I've got going on at the moment, like a full redesign and rework of the website for Project: Contingency, a Halo fan game I've helped work on THAT YOU CAN CURRENTLY PLAY! The current version of that site is running on a modified version of the software I wrote for this website, so I've been optimizing that site at the same time. Even knowing I'm going to replace it with a site that's a 10x times better.

That's about it for this update, thanks for reading!

Brand new Halo 5 Gamercards

By at 04:11 AM
We're very happy to announce the first gamercards for Halo 5 are available right now, it's taken a few days but we've made sure to make it the best we can. Head on over to the generators page and you'll find the new generator at the top of the page.
If you're not on the generator page just yet (what are you waiting for?) there's some Halo 5 gamercards right here for you to enjoy.
If you just want to take a look at your own gamercard you could right here.
Aside from these new Halo 5 gamercards you can also expect to see other improvements and additions to the site in the coming months, including the popular auto generation feature for Halo 4 gamercards coming to Halo 5's gamercards.

Open Beta!

By at 22:35 PM
Hey guys, we're now accepting registrations on the new accounts page.
If you're wondering what this is about, we're now allowing you to let us automatically update your gamercard every few days. This means you can enter the details of one gamercard and set the rate at which it will regenerate.
Remember, this is an open beta, so things might not work correctly all of the time. Please do report any bugs you find in the comments below or send me a tweet at @__Caspar__ to let me know.
There'll be more features available in the future, including a custom commenting system for the blogposts, profiles where you can show your gamercards, early access to new generators (2 of which are coming pretty soon).

That new car smell.

Don't you just love that smell, when you can smell something is new?
This update was a long time coming now, since I've been wanting to update to something like this for months. This does mean I may have rushed it here and there, but I fixed all the big bugs I could so far.
If you're wondering about the 404 on the About page, that's intentional until I put something there, I was just too excited to put this new theme out there :P)
It is also fully responsive and adaptive, so it'll fit perfectly on your mobile devices too.

Custom avatars are here.

By at 04:41 AM
As of right now, the brand new avatar generator is fully up and running.
You can now get a very customizable avatar from the armory, right here on Armor Watcher.
You can choose whether you want to show your emblem or not, whether you want to use an image as a background or a plain color, and whether you want to stand posed or in the default pose.
I may or may not add some more content to the generator in the near future, so you might end up having to regenerate your avatar when something major gets added, which for now seems unlikely.
Please hang on while we work out some of the bugs.
