Day 1 Playlists

I for one think the day one playlists need to be way more diverse than they have been with the last two games 343 has released. I know BtB is being delayed, but playlists like doubles, objective, swat, snipers need to be implemented day one.

It’s far more likely we’ll have a small number of playlists to start to force people into warzone.

  • FFA
  • Team Slayer
  • Breakout
  • Team Doubles
  • Team Objective
  • Warzone

Crucial playlists like Snipers and SWAT always seem to get added later for some reason.

Well, we know base slayer, FFA, CTF, Shotty snipers, strongholds, breakout, and swat will be there day 1. That comes from a screenshot of the list of gametypes available to RUL when he played arena at a convention. It wasn’t the whole list, you could clearly see that you could scroll down farther

Source please. This is surprising.

That was just a build though. Nothing guaranteed.

Seems kinda strange that they’d include gametypes besides the ones that were prebuilt into the game

A build is not the final list of playlists.

It’s not exactly what I’d even call a source. It’s just a re-release build. Don’t read too much into it.

Warzone is all I need

I think Warzone will suffice enough for multiple gamemodes like BTB and Heavies, but arena has the iconic ones we NEED: Slayer, BREAKOUT, ETC.

Its Princess Snickerdoodle to you, Sir.

My guess is that we will have

  • Rumble Pit or Lone Wolves
  • Team Slayer
  • Team Objective
  • Warzone
  • Breakout
  • Team Snipers
  • Swat
  • Halo Championship Series
  • Team Doubles

I bet they will add infection, and others when btb launches.

Add the weekend social playlist and that’s golden. Expect infection week 1

I hope infection is in there for the first weekend just because of halloween being 4 days after.

I just want Infection

Guys I can’t clarify enough that this is not MCC and we will most likely NOT be seeing Team Snipers or/and Team SWAT on launch. These will most likely come in a future update to the current playlist of the game. I think the list might go as this for default:

  1. Team Slayer
  2. Team Objective
  3. Breakout
    4: FFA
  4. WarZone
  5. HCS/MLG Gametypes
    (7-9 Social Playlist for Team Slayer. Team Objective, and/or FFA.) Maybe.

I could be very wrong and they could include Team Snipers as our first rotational playlist which would provide room for even more playlist inside this small but great room of matchmaking types for launch day.
