I’m gonna be honest—I love the concept of Halo 5’s Warzone. In fact, I think that if REQ packs hadn’t taken the forefront, it could’ve been best addition of Halo multiplayer in a long time. Sure, the UI for stock weapons is super clunky; and, as I mentioned before, the REQ packs are horrible. With that being said, I truly think it deserves to be brought back to Infinite… with some type of overhaul, of course.
Everyone loves PvP, right? Halo multiplayer has been a staple of the franchise for a loooooong time. And everyone loves PvE, right? The campaigns and Firefight have always been a blast to play. The two deserve to be blended in some capacity, and I think Warzone is the right way to do that.
If the mode returns, the big change that would need to be implemented is how the REQ system is handled. There cannot, and I cannot stress that CANNOT enough, be any microtransactions here. All REQs need to be available as a player ‘levels up’ through a match. Obviously, there would be some kind of an increased cooldown to prevent spamming power weapons/vehicles. It could still, work, though. I genuinely believe that.
Mini-bosses and scattered enemy AI from the campaign in a large-scale fight against other players is such a cool concept. If 343 doesn’t want to bring back Warzone, they should at least consider a successor. The concept alone is too cool to not capitalize on. Just don’t take that ‘capitalize’ too literally.
