Yesterday, a brand new matchmaking update was pushed to all Halo 4 playlists, adding a slew of fan-made maps into a number of various game modes.

As detailed in the latest Halo Waypoint blog post, check out what sort of new maps you can expect to pop up in these game modes:

  • Black Site by The Fated Fire
  • Plaza by Smexi Bilzo
  • Shutout by SaLoT and NLTROOO

  • Black Site by The Fated Fire
  • Simplex by SaLoT
  • Scythe by PA1NTS
  • Serenity by DG Intensity
  • Opus by SHIFTY time

Removed from Rumble Pit

  • Shutout by SaLoT and NLTROOO

Added to Team Objective

  • Edifice by Redemption1271 (KoTH)
  • Serenity by DG Intensity (KoTH)
  • Station 9 by SaLoT (Extraction)

Added to Infinity Slayer

  • Opus by SHIFTY time
  • Simplex by SaLoT
  • Scythe by PA1NTS

Team Snipers

  • Shutout has been updated with improved respawn points for Team Snipers.

343 Industries writes, “we have decided to remove Shutout (a remake of Halo 2’s Lockout) from the Rumble Pit playlist due to how this version of the map flows in Halo 4. An updated version of Shutout will be placed into SWAT, Team Snipers and Infinity Slayer. Additionally, Simplex will be updated to the Team Throwdown version across all playlists with the exception of Action Sack, as Lightning Flag plays best on the prior version of Simplex due to lines of sight and other factors.”

Other matchmaking updates included the removal of the Grunt Birthday effect from Fiesta Classic in the Action Sack playlist. Parents/roommates/significant others will be happy about this one. Also, some of the Grifball setting have been updated to “reflect the correct community settings in regards to Base Player Damage, Grif Damage Resistance, Grif Shield Multiplier and Suicide Penalty.”

In case you missed it, the brand new Halo 4 weapon tweaks go live early next month. Check out the details!
