Had to double check after reading the update…how could you not mention this?!

  • Streaming Tunes – Next week, we’re pulling all the pieces together for a deep-diving Livestream roundtable to more intricately discuss the Halo 5 Weapon Tuning project. Current time is slated for 3:00 PM PT on Wednesday, Nov. 1 on Redirecting... most important part of the update…well in my opinion anyway. :wink:

Oh and did I understand that right? They are updating the Halo 3 playlist for 4K at the same time they are removing it to replace it with Oddball? Kind of an odd choice.

Do we still get the pack if we log on, access our Halo 5 service record and tap on to “REQUISITION” section here in Waypoint?

Fixed, adde that in thanks

Throwback playlist in Halo 5 is getting swapped out for Oddball, but it will return with new maps and Oddball support later on. Halo 3 back compat is getting enhanced for the X1X along with 3 other back-compat games

That I’m not sure about, but I would log into the game just to make sure

Ah, thanks for that clarification. I don’t know why but I was thinking that the playlist itself was getting the 4K update not the BC Halo 3, duh!

Yes. I just checked my Requisitions here on Waypoint and the “Greatest Hits Customization Pack” is there.

Granted im only sr 101 but I was very surprised by the legendary armor I got. Hermes armor, helljumper armor and hunter helmet. Quite impressed.

Just in case anyone was wondering. If youre done with Req unlocks you get 5 Legendary Arena XP boosts.

I hope the stream ends before 7pm central. I have Survivor to watch. :smiley:

I’m also sad about the H3 playlist, but if it comes back with better spawns and maps I’ll be happy.

So what happened to every playlist being double XP?! Infection is the only one I see.

Let’s see some Halo 5 Xbox One X footage! Is the 4K update coming on Nov 7th?
