        I confused… what does that mean ?

        • I’m flipping them off…

          • Kyle Soule

            Oh ok that makeses sense.

          • Haha. Sometimes I try to offend people in a way that doesn’t even seem like an insult. 😛

  • Boldcyclonus

    Wtf? Can I have the stg 44 instead?

    • Aodhan

      Yeah, Im grand master prestige, where’s my stg6 and blunderbuss?

      • Deadly Ed

        Waiting for you in a random supply drop, like everyone else.

          damn it.. it’s stg44, dont even know why i said stg6 😛

          • Xx_COLSEY_xX

            Haha it’s cool man

    • ghosts sucks

      Nope have to buy it. Or wait till next week and trade your old items for ASD’s

      • Axel Noir

        How do you know it’s next week, my friend ?

        • RdJokr

          It’s probably next week, since there will be a patch across all platforms, with priorities on Xbox to enable support for Reckoning DLC. I can’t imagine them delaying this feature any later, because people would be over this game around September/October as they get ready for Black Ops III.

        • ghosts sucks

          I read that it is with the next dlc update

  • Stefan Lang

    Fuck that give us some weapons idgaf what my character looks like.

    • Xx_COLSEY_xX

      But you’ve just got 3 weapons recently added to your platform. Unless you’re on PS4. Damn they are some greedy animals about today

  • Umpaloompa360

    YESSS, what an epic birthday gift!!! (:

    • Xx_COLSEY_xX

      Happy Birthday

        Happy Burday

    • baseballer59

      It’s my birthday too 🙂

  • Coolio!

  • Ryumoau

    Awesome. Can’t wait to get it. 🙂

  • Brad

    Wow, this legendary helmet will make me feel so special because nobody else will have it cause it’s so rare and legendary…wait a minute…I think I’ll just sell it for 4000 xp

  • Cathal Obrien

    This is the Ronnin helmet

    • Deadly Ed

      No it isn’t. That (as the Label suggests) is the Ronin ‘Mask’, not helmet. Engage brain 😉

      • WhiskeyDick

        It is actually none of the above! That’s the sentinel recon mask everyone gets on their first prestige

        • Prostidude

          Exactly, it is nothing more than a simple reskin.

        • It’s a very, very subtle re texture.

          Man, SH refuses to put effort into anything that doesn’t encourage buying ASDs

          • Kuppion

            thats about the dam truth they dont take time with anything they do lets just pray that BO3 is amazing

      • xSilent-Commando

        Hello,

        The Ronin helmet is the exact same as “Sentinel Recon” but with a slightly lighter grey to it but as you said this tweet said “Ronin Helmet” and that says “Mask” in the images…

        In Create an Operator some things are “muddled” up as Hats eta are under “Helmet” section.

        ~ Taylor.

  • Is this really worth it’s own article? I think a #hammerweek article with updates would be more appropriate.

    • Prostidude

      Well I mean, do take into consideration this is an individual “Event”. CharlieIntel post on individual events in the gaming community. So, it would be expected that this would happen. Plus, if they did updates, people would barely check it. So they do it one by one to catch the viewer(s) attention. (xD sorry for the long ass comment.)

    • Xx_COLSEY_xX

  • jordanxbrookes

    So I just need to sign into AW and play a match to receive it then? Hope so because I’m out all day with mates tomorrow.

    • xSilent-Commando

      Hello there,

      As before in “Gear Drops” we have to get either a SD or an ASD so a normal SD you usually get the first item in it will have this Legendary Helmet.

      Thanks,

      ~ Taylor.

      • Axel Noir

        Kid. Just say what you want to say. You are not writing a letter. You are in a blog.

        • Why are you so butthurt over his comment damn

          • Axel Noir

            Actually, I’m not. I’m just indirectly implying to him it’s just a blog.

          • Xx_COLSEY_xX

            Everyone has a right of freedom of speech my friend 🙂

            – Colsey

          • Is there a rule that says writing like that is not allowed?

          • Prostidude

            I’m with Axel Noir…. This guy posts like this on everything that he posts. Lmao, writes like he is writing a letter to the Queen of England or some shit.

          • Axel Noir

            Thanks bro.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Ikr. Next thing we know, he’ll be putting everything he says in quotation marks so that he can try to be unique and stand out.

          • Does it hurt you a lot?

          • Prostidude

            it gives me a headache for some reason lol

    • glitch031

      Good luck with getting it… Played a lot of games and open some drops and nothing yet

  • xSilent-Commando

    This actually may be the “Samurai! gear set as I searched for “Ronin Helmet” and it is this:

    https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=ronin+helmet&es_sm=93&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0CAcQ_AUoAWoVChMIjbzIgKCBxwIVDSzbCh3ZYwmX&biw=1366&bih=667#imgrc=EEUqoWTNjyjQAM%3A

    But right beside it it the Samurai (Exact same as in AW) and is here:

    https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=ronin+helmet&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0CAcQ_AUoAWoVChMI2df1x6CBxwIVTSjbCh2GGggG&biw=1366&bih=667#imgrc=zGtM0cL6-ZS61M%3A

    I also believe it could be a mix of either these like the first image but with the bigger back helmet on top of the new one as I don`t see why Sledgehammer games would make a helmet without matching gear stuff already in “production” (In ASD/SD`S).

    I don`t mind what it it but as long as I have something Legendary…

    ~ Taylor.

  • Alex

    Ops sorry.. I was looking for BO3 news

    • ccrows

      & yet you STILL took the time to comment on an AW article. OK bruh… <_<

  • Gooby

      fuk of, gooby.

        il ram mi dik dwon ur trhota

        • Axel Noir

          Cao ni ma, mudak

  • ShepeTunka

    A rōnin (浪人?)[1] was a samurai with no lord or master during the feudal period (1185–1868) of Japan. A samurai became masterless from the death or fall of his master, or after the loss of his master’s favor or privilege.[

    • Axel Noir

      So gnarly.

      • ShepeTunka

        Hopefully we’ll get the Samurai helmet or a variant of it.

        • ShepeTunka

          I guess Not…!
          Phuck!

    • Endo Flawless

      or upon his own accord. In pursuit of power it wasn’t rare or unknown for a Samurai to become a Ronin. As you are not a samurai unless you have a master, samurai meaning ‘to serve’.

  • Pablo

    Lol they give it on the 30th when it’s my birthday

  • ccrows

    Don’t get why people are complaining.

    It’s FREE S***!

    If you don’t like the way it looks, then sell it for XP or save it for a future Supply Drop Credit… *SMH*

    • RdJokr

      People will just complain about anything these days. One dude even complained about not getting proper value for the Season pass, just because the M1 Irons and the recently added guns are free.

  • imBATMAN

    I think of Ronin from Guardians of the Galaxy

  • Sentinel

    Hmm tbh I lost the sense of excitement with all the COD gear, like you dont get to show off much of it in online gamplay since its fast pace

    • Prostidude

      That’s why I cant wait for black ops 3. Where you can Actually see your customization…

      • Sentinel

        Yeah, the locker room i think its called…you can roam around and invite ur friends before starting a match

  • Xx_COLSEY_xX

    To all those people saying “They’re giving me this on my birthday” Happy birthday and have an awesome day. And to those who’s ungrateful for getting a FREE ITEM, feck off.
    (BTW Noahgoa I would change my profile picture if I could but this account is linked to my Facebook account. It would be weird if people I know IRL saw my Facebook profile picture as Xx_COLSEY_xX. Thanks anyway bud)

    • That’s fine man. It’s just that your picture appears poorly on Disqus. Who knows, maybe you’ll need the new one in the future. 😉

      • Xx_COLSEY_xX

        Ok thanks for the heads up

    • Phoenix King

      Sorry, but this ”gift” is a glorified sentinel recon helmet.

      • Xx_COLSEY_xX

        I like the look of the sentinel recon kit anyways. It looks cool and it’s dark. The sentinel recon helmet looked cool too. So the Ronin mask is same but i’ll be wearing it just because it’s legendary

        • Phoenix King

          It’s not a Legendary, its a permanent loot item. Its a reskin, its unnacceptable.

  • Xx_COLSEY_xX

    #HammerWeek!!!

  • baseballer59

    I haven’t played advanced warfare in a while but tomorrow is my birthday so that’s a pretty cool little gift 🙂

    • Happy birthday dude, I hope you have a great day!

      • Connor Gabbey

        I got the helmet

    • Umpaloompa360

      That is so crazy my birthday is also the 30th!! Happy birthday to you.

    • Kyle Soule

      Happy birthday! Here are 200 sweg points.

  • I was sitting here thinking this was the samurai helmet, but nope it’s just barley a retexture of the sentinel recon helmet that everyone has..

  • Rinon

    So, do you have to
    earn a supply drop, or does it give you one when you get a kill?

  • John Dunn

    Boring crud did not recieve free ronin helmet anyways just a con to get u to play me thinks

  • Cathal Obrien

    Guess I was right on the helmet

  • Respect Gaming

    Will be starting a youtube channel next summer, so if you would like to go ahead and subscribe, I will be making vlogs, getting it hyped up for the start of my new channel for next summer.

    • Stefan Lang

      Nah fam

      • Respect Gaming

        Well thank you though, just wondering why not?

        • Stefan Lang

          I mean Ill sub and check it out but people usually give other people shit when they promote their channels here using CI as a platform.

          • Respect Gaming

            I mean its up to you and I was just trying to get myself out there and I understand where you are coming from, one of the reason why it’s so difficult to be able to do it today. But thank you though fam.

          • Stefan Lang

            Yeah I understand. Ill check u out tho. Its just certain people here who are dicks and would give you shit for posting anything trying to promote yourself.

          • Respect Gaming

            Thanks man, I understand.

  • melchor2679

    I will grind it out tonight to see what’s up with that supply drop. I just hope it’s not the recon re-skinned, that would suck.

    • zack

      Its the recon. Not really even reskinned.

  • MasterSonny

    Oh for fucks sake…

    • Thetribalgod

      SHG was just like “I got a brilliant idea! Let’s take the Sentinel Recon Mask and call it the legendary Ronin Mask!” If they were going to use the Sentinel Recon Mask this whole time, at least make it cool by making it frost white with a red eye lense and a crazy ass black tribal design or some shit. Not a complete fucking copy. So stupid.

      • Sam Spurr

        Actually there is a design on the top and back.

        • MasterSonny

          So what? It’s still lazy.

      • And they didn’t even make a new helmet, they just took a old asset barley anyone had and then re scripted it as a legendary.

    • Mick

      LMFAO! This game is so gay. I was wondering what it looked like.

    • bob

      More of the shady shit by activision. Hey, we are giving away free “legendary” stuff.. My gawd. Can this company get anymore shitty? I honestly, don’t think so. And people actually support them. I do have to admit this is the same company behind Destiny, so I guess it is a small step above that piece of shit game.

      • TheSilverScrublord

        But, its not activision, its Sledgehammer, get the facts before you rant dude, this is all because of #HammerWeek

      • the big dirtty

        Sup Bob! Despite our previous encounters…I agree with you 100% here. It is a joke…lol I havent played AW since early December and I have this helmet…purple or white font, legendary or not…who give a shit its the same thing!

        For them to throw this out and label it ‘legendary’ is a joke.

        What the fuck are they thinking with this shit?! Seriously, who at SHG thinks this is a good idea lol wtf.

    • Imventing

      the ultimate troll lmfaooo when i seen that shit pop up on my screen bro. BRO!! omg..

    • Doug Rohrig

      Ur such a typical angry nerd. You probably bash every major video game made by a major developer dont you? COD AW is actually a really well done game. Yes it has flaws….so do you, me, ur parents, the pope, etc. Stop being an elitist d bag and enjoy the company giving away a supposedly rare item. I cant stand the point of view you have. Your a video game hipster, and nobody likes hipsters. Quit your bitchen and go play hockey if your upset about video games you butt hurt nerd

      • MasterSonny

        I’m not even gonna start a fight with you.

        • Adrix

          I wouldn’t either. This guy’s not even worth it.

      • Tomahawk1337

        If you are complaining about who he is a nerd of call of duty why are you on the site aswel

      • the big dirtty

        Ha…

        “COD AW is actually a really well done game”

        I’ll just sit here and punch myself in the nuts over and over again because I can’t believe you said that.

  • Tep Kok

    Still isn’t enough to make me suffer this game

  • Axel Noir

    Cool, but what the fuck is the difference between sentinel recon and ronin ?

    • MasterSonny

      Literally Nothing.

  • Emile

    I got the ronin helmet from a supply drop today but it wasn’t legendary. Anyone else got the same problem?

  • Stefan Lang

    HOW THE FUCK IS THIS LEGENDARY!? Its the SAME design as the helmet you get when you first prestige ????

    • TheDemonOfHate

      It has a Legendary label on it. Can’t you see the purple on it. That’s what makes it a legendary. Plug in your HDMI it will help a lot.

  • gavin

    I logged on but I did not receive the helmet

    • zack

      You have to play the game until you get a supply drop.

  • Whatever

    Surprise motherfucker #get trolled ITS A TROLL HAVEN’T YOU NOTICED YET IF NOT YOU ARE BLIND

  • Aaron Coleman

    got just now on ps4

  • Aaron Coleman
    • Whatever

      Well they turned all ronin helmets into recon helmets IT THE END OF THE WORLD

  • Kuppion

    This is stupid its exactly like the Sentinel Recon Mask I wish it would look like this

    • Whatever

      What if it was replaced by the recon but maybe the original recon helmet is the real ronin helmet

  • Whatever

    #hammertrolled

  • Whatever

    Lol

  • beamer

    I’ve been playing. Got a few supply drops, bought a big ole ASD didn’t get it. Did get some items I didn’t notice were out before: Luchador knee pads and boots, Lagoon shirt, Punk boots and knee pads, clown shirt, arachnid pants, aces knee pads, passionate sunglasses, eco shirt and tombstone loadout.

  • Whatever

    If it is a bug they can try to shut off the servers until they can fix it

    • MasterSonny

      Nope. It’s not a bug. It’s just laziness.

  • spartanelite

    Oh wow I thought it was going to be the samurai one I just forgot I was called smaurai because ronin and samauri are almost the same thing no?

  • Karmapolice33

    Just got mine , didn’t know about it and Googled it aND brought me here

  • Infedel
  • SoulTaker

    You know you fucked up when Tmarn isn’t SUPER EXCITED!!!!!!

  • Tim

    You know its bad when Tmartn is disapointed

  • beamer

    It’s the same mask just slightly darker with a light grey skunk stripe on the top

  • lucas amador

    Wait is this for the last gen top like ps3 pr xbox 360

  • Jpcgames

    So suprised to get this i now have 3 legendary items

  • Jamie Dean

    No wonder it’s free nothing legendary about it smh

  • ASTR0x0M3GA

    i have two of these and they’re aren’t even legendary, smh

  • ASTR0x0M3GA

    they are not even legendary

  • melchor2679

    Just got it, so disappointed.

  • ShepeTunka

    It sucks!
    It does, it does….

  • Noretrollor

    This is exactly a remake of the Sentinel Recon Mask. You know is not good when TmarTn poses a video and doesn’t likes it.

  • scrotesmd

    this is nothing short of an insult, cant believe i switched on my PS4 for this crap!

  • Adrix

    Ok, so let me summarize everything: first SHG gives us 3 new “free” guns, all of which I will probably never get, and now a f*cking legendary “Ronin” helmet that is an exact replica of a stupid “Sentinel Recon Mask”? Is this what I get for buying your game together with an insanely overpriced season pass and paying about 130 €, SHG? Go f*uck yourselves. Your whole team. I’ve f*ucking had it.

  • FPS Broski

    i think sledgehammer did a great thing by doing this

  • McCulahagn

    Lol, what the fucks going on here? The COD community is actually such shit, they complain about the stupidest crap, like u got some beef with a free hat for ur character? And you complain about every Cod ever made, one way or another it’s never good enough. Honestly, u discontented little fucks wouldn’t know a good game if you were playing it, quit polluting this website with your boneheaded nonsense

  • I Dont care (Bobgang1)

    WTF im in australia and on ps4 and didnt get it!?!?! i was playing on the 30th to yesterday my psn name is Bobgang1

    • Noretrollor

      Shouldn’t really matter since it looks smack alike the freaking Sentinel Recon Mask except a few edits.

  • OmegaElectro

    What a joke…. scrapped that shit for xp straight away

    • Noretrollor

      I don’t believe you, I tried to redeem it but it says ”Not Redeemable”.

      • OmegaElectro

        yeah I tried to scrap it later … turns out its permanent… waist

        • Noretrollor

          Yeah dang 🙁

  • Noretrollor

    I believe the Sledhammer were going to the correct road, making a ton of money for a good game. But it is going a bit f*cking weird with all these gear sets. But a Legendary with a f*cking replica of a Sentinel Recon Mask? Now when I tell my friends and they ask me whats my first ever legendary, I’m going to say it’s a piece of f*cking garbage that looks smack alike the Sentinel Recon Mask. Now my hunt for legendaries are over, because what kind of f*cking company gives a legendary (that alot of people don’t got) that looks the same of a sentinel recon mask? Unless Sledhammer wants some hate, they got more then they wanted. Smfh, im done with COD AW, I hope Black Ops 3 won’t be like this..
