Team SWAT is a returning favourite from Halo 3 & Halo: Reach which features one main objective, aim for the head!
Team SWAT is a 4v4 playlist, consisting of two teams, fighting until 600 points (60 kills) have been gained.
Here are some details of Team SWAT:
• DMR – 3 bullets to the chest, 1 bullet to the head
• Magnum – 3 bullets to the chest, 1 bullet to the head
• Battle Rifle – 7 bullets to the chest (this gun shoots three bullets in a burst, so the first bullet of the third burst will kill the player), 1 bullet to the head
These are the maps that will appear in the SWAT playlist.
|Score to Win||600 [60 Kills]|
|Loadout 1 – SWAT DMR||DMR, Magnum|
|Loadout 2 – SWAT BR||BR, Magnum|
|Damage Resistance||.8 – Headshot = Instant kill|
Weekly Playlist Updates
In this weeks Halo Bulletin, Jessica Shea, community manager of 343 Industries, announced that unlike previous Halo games which would receive monthly playlist updates, Halo 4 would receive weekly ones.
“Halo 4 Matchmaking updates will occur on a more frequent basis than what you’re accustomed to with Reach. Instead of monthly updates, we will be providing weekly updates, with the goal being to provide fresh content on a regular basis.
We will maintain a static set of playlists and feature one or two “rotational” playlists on top of that. We will be monitoring trends and statistics closely so we can react accordingly to your preferences and likes. For instance, if one of our rotational playlists consistently holds a higher population than one of our static playlists, we will consider swapping them out based on player demand.
The process will be fluid and based on numbers, and we’re extremely excited about the benefits of our new approach.”
Jessica Shea encourages players to use their Matchmaking section on the official Halo Waypoint forums to give feedback on the weekly playlist updates and suggest what you would like to see!
