Every two weeks we update Halo 4 Matchmaking with exciting new game types, playlist changes and more. You can see what we have planned in the months ahead by visiting the Matchmaking Playlist Calendar, but below you can get details on what's now available in today's Halo 4 Matchmaking Update.Heavies: Available until 2/17
Heavies is our next featured playlist! In this warzone, you’ll work with teams of six players each in Slayer and objective game types with a tremendous amount of firepower, including large weapons and vehicles. In Heavies, each of the maps in the playlist have been outfitted with an abundance of vehicles, additional cover for infantry, and heavy weapons. Hop into a vehicle or grab the weapon of your choosing, and join your teammates in all-out vehicular warfare.
On top of bonuses for destroying vehicles, the playlist will give players an opportunity to work towards their Vehicle Mastery commendation, with plenty of chances to destroy a healthy number of Mantises, Scorpions, Wraiths, and more. Additionally, those of you chasing Halo 4 commendations for some of the heavier weapons are likely to find success in Heavies. We will be offering both Slayer and King of the Hill in the playlist across on-disc maps as well as maps from the Crimson and Castle Map Packs.
Beginning today, SWAT CTF is now available in the SWAT Playlist! The game type was the clear winner over SWAT Oddball and SWAT King of the Hill, grabbing 47% of your community votes. The game type features forced respawn times and be playable on a variety of maps.
Get in and make it happen, Spartans. We’ll see you on the virtual battlefield!
