The Avatar Awards wiki last edited by BeachThunder on 08/29/13 02:01AM View full history

Overview

Avatar Awards are accessories you can unlock for your Xbox 360 Avatar. They are earned in a similar fashion as ordinary Xbox 360 achievements, but instead of adding to your Gamerscore or your unlocked achievements, you receive a piece of clothing or a prop for your Xbox 360 avatar. These items are closely themed to the game or developer, and range from simple t-shirts with the game or developer logo on it to entire costumes for your avatar (such as the ODST suit from Halo 3: ODST and the Doom marine suit from Doom II: Hell on Earth).

Avatar Awards were first implemented in the New Xbox Experience starting with 'Splosion Man. Xbox Live Arcade games are limited to two avatar awards while Xbox 360 retail games are usually limited to five. If you delete a game from your profile, avatar awards from it will be removed (and can be later re-unlocked, usually with a special menu option). You cannot gain avatar awards from game demos or game trials.
