Sledgehammer Games has also provided a preview of upcoming features and fixes:


  • After players prestige once, WELCOME TO THE HQ quest pops back up.
  • After finishing a game, classes with Heroic weapons get reset.
  • Ranked Play support added for the upcoming Ranked Season in December.
  • Emblem Editor – Because most of our players are using a mouse & keyboard we wanted to take advantage of that, particularly for the UX around Emblem Editor. Therefore, we are taking some extra time to apply some more polish into the feature before releasing it on PC. The Emblem Editor is planned to be released in December, but stay tuned for more details on what PC specific features we are adding.

If you spot any players cheating, be sure to use the “Social > Select player > Report Player” option to alert the developers.
