Im not completely sure but there may be a way to make the piece or pieces more "flexible", at least just enough to put it on.
Yeah. I've seen picks the same way. Even in the "We are ODST" trailer the pads are connected. In some in game picks though, it seems as though the pads are separate.I joined them together, it kinda looks like it's combined in the game, so that's what I did with my secret ODST build that nobody knows about...
But seriously, I did do an ODST.[/QUOT
