Part of the hype machine this week it the announcement of the week one playlist that has been set in place for Guardians to try out all the latest features and maps in Halo 5 Guardians.

Below is the extensive list posted by IGN that details all the goods plus some Q&A with Quinn DelHoyo on the subject of playlist details.


Warzone – 24 players on massive maps with REQs and AI adversaries. Halo multiplayer has never been bigger!

Seeing as how Warzone matches can last upwards of 30 minutes join in progress is very important to keeping the party full & playing with your friends coming online during these epic matches. When asked this is what 343i had to say..  Quinn DelHoyo – “Warzone will have join in progress enabled.”

SWAT – No shields, no motion tracker. Aim for the head!

SWAT with Magnums is split into its own list. When asked if this meant that SWAT only featured the Battle Rifle and SWATnums only featured the Magnum, DelHoyo said, “No, we went with two variants here because we wanted to maintain the classic feeling of SWAT with the Battle Rifle version but we also wanted to give a place for players to practice their headshot skills with the Magnum as it’s the primary utility weapon that players spawn with in all modes across Halo 5: Guardians multiplayer.  That’s where SWATnums comes in.”

Weekend Social A weekly playlist that features a mode voted on by the community via Halo Waypoint/Channel. – Bonus XP/REQ points – Community engagement – Most popular modes have the potential for becoming their own playlist.

When DelHoyo was asked- So, does this mean we can expect old favorites such as Fiesta, Shotguns-n-Snipers, etc. to return in the Weekend Social playlist?

DelHoyo responded -“We’ll have a good assortment of modes that we’ll be bringing online. The Weekend Social playlist is going to be a great spot for us to engage the community and let them decide which modes get featured there. Some will be wacky just for the fun of it while others will be a bit more serious. We’re coming up with new ideas for modes every day. Once we feel like we have something cool, we’ll put it as one of the options for the community to vote on and the winner will get featured in the Weekend Social playlist.”

We at RectifyGaming are extremely excited to get knee deep into what is sure to become another cult classic into the ever expanding and evolving Halo franchise.
