Halo: Reach Playlists :: Gametypes, Maps & more... :: Updated 20/8/11

Well ever since 343i took over, Bungie decided to remove the Active Playlists option on their website and I have yet to see a replacement on the Waypoint Website for it, so I decided to try and ATTEMPT to write it all up, however, I don’t play a lot of playlists so I may need your help.

If you see any problems or Gametypes/Maps I have missed out, please reply and I will add them to the list.

In arena I know Select, Enclosed, Kingdom, and Synapse are there. Those are all in the team slayer playlist as well, with Affinity, Chateau, Think Twice, Eden Minor, Treasury, Renova, Precipice, Cliffhanger (I think), and Atom (I think). I’m 99.9% sure those last two are still there.

That’s off the top of my head, I know I’m missing a few.

In BTB you’re missing Abridged and Trident.

Premium slayer - Powerhouse is in there, as is Unanchored (Anchor 9 variant), and Uplink (Condemned variant). I think Reflection’s in there too but not 100% on that.

Added everything including Reflection just to be on the safe side.

i dont think arena zealot is in team snipers just pointing that out!

> i dont think arena zealot is in team snipers just pointing that out!

Thanks for the input man, friend suggested it was, wasn’t 100% sure on it myself.

Asylum isnt a Premium Battle map.

Good job btw.

> Asylum isnt a Premium Battle map.

Fixed, I just copied & pasted the Premium Slayer maps to the Premium Battle and added a few I knew, seems like I never removed Asylum.

Added & changed a few parts.

Corrected a few Gametypes & Maps.

Nice job, few things to point out though.

  • Add Swat 3 Plots to Team SWAT, that variant plays on both Zealot and Countdown.

-Change name in Team SWAT from The Cage to Uncaged.

-Remove Countdown, Pinnacle and Asylum from Team Snipers. Add Breakpoint and Tempest to Team Snipers.

-Add MLG territories on Sanc, add MLG King of the Hill on Nexus and Element.

-Add following maps to MLG; Veridian, Retroactive, Redemption, Android and Nexus.

Swat, snipes and MLG are the playlists I play mostly so sorry I can’t help with any others. If I do remember any others, I’ll be sure to post back here.
