Infection is Featured?

When entering the Social Arena Menu on Halo 5: Guardians, the Infection playlist has a star next to it, which indicates that it is a featured playlist. It even says that Infection is featured. What is this supposed to mean?

Infection has been featured for this upcoming Double XP weekend. Mythic Firefight and Ranked HCS are also featured.

It’s a double XP weekend, meaning that if you play the modes with the star next to it, you will get twice as many XP as you can normally. There’s usually 3 playlists each DXP weekend that have that, one per each category. For this weekend, the modes that have this are:

  • Social - Infection - Ranked - HCS Arena - Warzone - Mythic Warzone Firefight

I think it’s for the double XP.
