The last lot are via Specialisations. Once you hit SR-50 you’ll be able to select a Specialisation which you then keep until you’ve gone up 10 SR levels, then you can move onto the next one. It’s much like the Prestige system in Call of Duty. Each specialisation unlocks an armour set, a skin for that armour, a weapon skin, a custom visor colour, and the specialisation ability. Below are a list of all of the Specialisations and their special abilities, it’s important to note that as standard only two of them are available. The others are only available to customers who’ve got a pre-order code or who have bought the Limited Edition.

Wetwork: Faster assassinations, quieter footsteps and reduced visibility against Promethean vison
Pioneer: Advance quicker in rank
Engineer: HUD indicator for incoming ordinance.
Tracker: User can change ordinance options.
Rogue: Reduced flinch when being shot when scoped.
Stalker: Allows users to track down previous attacking enemies.
Pathfinder: Reduced turret cooldown and improved mobility when carrying.
Operator: Makes vehicles more durable.
