PostSubject: Halo 4 - Infinity Weekly Update #3   Thu Nov 22, 2012 8:01 pm

SWAT, Halo 4’s very first rotational playlist, continues to perform well so it is sticking around for another week. Team Snipers, however, come the next Matchmaking update, will be swapped out for FFA Throwback. Those of you that were waiting for Monday’s update at 2 a.m. PST have already gotten a small taste of this hopper. Those of you that weren’t there for the purposeful sneak peek (and by purposeful, I of course mean accidental, OOPS) can get properly initiated with the below information.

FFA Throwback offers two free-for-all experiences in one playlist – Oddball and King of the Hill. If you’ve been dominating these modes with teammates, see how the game changes when it’s every Spartan for themselves.

Below are the maps that will appear in the FFA Throwback playlist.
• Haven
• Adrift
• Complex
• Solace
• Abandon

If you are unfamiliar with Oddball and King of the Hill, here are some tips and tricks to give you a leg up on your competition.

Tips – Oddball
• While holding the ball, if your closest rival or the game leader is close to killing you, try throwing the Oddball away from them to deny them points.
• The Oddball is an instant kill with a melee attack. This is a huge help up-close.
• While holding the Oddball, remember that others can see your location.
• Grenades and weapons with high impulse will push the Oddball away. Use this to prevent an enemy from picking up the ball.

Tips – King of the Hill
• The points fanfare now counts up above your reticle. Keep an eye on exactly how many points you’re earning while in the hill.

• Timing when you go into the hill is a big game changer. It’s often best to clear out enemies before rushing in.
• Targeting your competition is huge. Take down your closest rivals vying for each valuable point in the hill.
• When a hill reaches 5 points or less, the next hill will be highlighted on your HUD as “INCOMING”. Keep an eye on this, and plan your moves in advance.
• On maps with vehicles, use them to help dominate a hill (and earn special vehicle hill medals while you do it!).

Here is a preview of the planned settings for FFA Throwback.

We hope you continue to enjoy SWAT (Frankie wanted me to tell you that he’s continuing to enjoy shooting your face), and we hope you love FFA Throwback when it launches on 11.26. We’re going to guess you’ll give us your feedback either way in the Matchmaking section of our forums. ‘Cause you’re kind of sort of good like that.
