Share this:

New maps and modes arrive this morning in Halo 5: Guardians‘ first public playlist update of the year.

As voted by the community, Shotty Snipers will take this weekend’s featured spot, offering increased XP rewards until Monday morning. According to 343 Industries, the mode will be playable on all Arena maps, save for the Breakout variants.

Additional changes include the removal of Orion from all playlists, which 343 hopes to re-evaluate before re-adding. Meanwhile, work is also being done to improve spawns on all maps, including exploits.

For now, players can look forward to 15 new map/game type combinations in standard playlists. Here’s exactly what’s new (additions are in red) as of this Monday:
