Halo 4 – Team Snipers Re-Visits in Next Monday’s War Games Playlist Update

This Monday, February 11, 343 Industries will be re-introducing Team Snipers in another War Games playlist update with a few tweaks here and there.

Two iterations will be joining this party: Team Snipers and Shotty Snipers.

Team Snipers is for the hardcore sniper. Rader is turned off and grenades, ordinance and secondary weapons are all disabled. Full settings below:

Mode

Team Snipers

Teams 4 vs. 4
Score to Win 600 [60 Kills]
Loadouts UNSC Sniper Rifle Only
Instant Respawn Disabled
Death Cam Disabled
Motion Tracker Disabled
Ammo Unlimited
Time Limit 12 Minutes
Personal Ordnance Disabled
Grenades Disabled
Ordnance Drops Disabled

 

Shotty Snipers is for those who like to add a bit of variety to the long range gameplay. Full settings are as follows:

Mode

Shotty Snipers

Teams 4 vs. 4
Score to Win 600 [60 Kills]
Primary UNSC Sniper Rifle
Secondary Shotgun
Instant Respawn Disabled
Death Cam Disabled
Motion Tracker Disabled
Ammo Unlimited
Time Limit 12 Minutes
Personal Ordnance Disabled
Grenades Enabled
Ordnance Drops Disabled

 

343 will be launching the playlist “with several medium-sized maps – slightly modified versions of Haven, Abandon and some Forge favorites will be available,” according to an update on the Halo Bulletin.

In addition, 343 will also be launching Team Objective which “will group together 4 vs. 4 Team Regicide, Oddball and King of the Hill (she’s back!). The biggest changes you’ll see to these game types are that Complex Oddball has been removed, and instant respawn has been disabled for both KoTH and Oddball.”

Of course, brand new Spartan Ops content will be making its way to Halo 4 this monday alongside the new playlist update, so be sure to keep an eye out for that.

Are you excited to get back in the arena, sniper rifle in hand? Or, are you going to be getting your game on in the objective playlist?

    Excited that they will be grouped which should compensate for the lack of players on. The original team snipers was not fun because the maps were are huge and only 4 players a side. (BTW you should edit this because you mis-spelt ‘radar’)

      My friends and I stopped playing 2 weeks after release. Been waiting for Big Team Battle and good maps to be released…….Neither have happened so we went back to Halo 3.

        In that case, don’t hold your breath. Crimson Map Pack was targeted at the Big Team crowd, but it seems everyone is avoiding it like the plague.

    • BF3 isnt competitive

      Yeah. And with the addition of gametypes without insta spawn and new forge maps more people are coming back. Infinity everything made the game not competitive. Still needs ranking system

    The big thing missing is a trueskill 1-50 playlist selection. That was a HUGE reason halo MP was so popular back in the day.
