Before today, if you wanted large scale battles with vehicles in Halo 5: Guardians, your only option was the new Warzone mode. That thing mixes PVP with PVE in REQ Pack based warfare. That’s a whole lot of letters, I know.
343 Industries has officially rolled out a less confusing way to get down with carnage in huge arenas. Big Team Battle is back in Halo 5: Guardians, and it’s available now.
Here’s what they say about the fresh playlist on their official site:
… Big Team Battle is the cherry on top, and you’ll recognize elements and aspects of the first four maps in the mix, but all four have been, in varying ways, significantly adjusted for the new mobility, weapons and features of Halo 5 – and all are available in both Custom Games and Matchmaking, and present just a hint of the content featured in next month’s update.
The new 8v8 Big Team Battle playlist is now available. Grab a group of friends, jump in a Warthog, and duke it out on four new Big Team Battle canvases: Deadlock, Basin, Guillotine, and Recurve. Looking for explosive, large-scale Arena action? You’ve found it.
I can get behind this. Hopefully my teammates won’t ignore my flagrant Warthog honking and get in so we can deal some serious damage to our opponents. What part of “BEEP BEEP BEEEEEEP BEEP BEEEEP” don’t you understand, Spartan?!
