Halo 4 playlist update pairs you up in new Team Doubles game types

Starting from the beginning of next week, Halo 4′s playlist will be updated with some new Team Doubles game types including: Infinity Doubles, Doubles Pro and CTF Doubles.

Halo Waypoint has us covered with the details below:

Infinity Doubles 

The Infinity Slayer experience in 2 vs 2 form. In this variant, players have the option to choose their custom loadout, and instant respawn and radar are enabled. Personal ordnance will kick in at the traditional 70 point mark, but the options are tweaked specifically for Team Doubles. Games are played up to 300 points.

Doubles Pro 

An experience that features preset game loadouts. The score limit is the same as above, but radar, personal ordnance and instant respawn are disabled.

Loadout 1

  • Starting Weapon – DMR
  • Secondary Weapon – Magnum
  • Armor Abilities – None
  • Tactical Mod – Resupply
  • Support Mod – Dexterity

Loadout 2

  • Starting Weapon – BR
  • Secondary Weapon – Magnum
  • Armor Abilities – None
  • Tactical Mod – Resupply
  • Support Mod – Dexterity

Loadout 3

  • Starting Weapon – LightRifle
  • Secondary Weapon – Magnum
  • Armor Abilities – None
  • Tactical Mod – Resupply
  • Support Mod – Dexterity

Loadout 4

  • Starting Weapon – Carbine
  • Secondary Weapon – Magnum
  • Armor Abilities – None
  • Tactical Mod – Resupply
  • Support Mod – Dexterity

CTF Doubles

The ever-popular Capture the Flag game type, customized for 2 vs 2 play. Custom loadouts and radar are enabled, and respawn time is set to 10 seconds. Flag settings provide an optimal experience for small maps and teams: 5 flags to win, 3 second return, and 15 second reset. Lastly, your flag does not have to be home to score.

In addition to this, 343 Industries will also be playing around with the non-doubles CTF playlist, adding the Relay and Exile maps, and reducing the flag reset time to 15 seconds on Adrift, Abandon, Solace and Relay to reflect the smaller map size.

Furthermore, an Infinity CTF option is also being added as a voting option during matchmaking, allowing players to call in personal ordinance.

Next week also sees the Community Forge test playlist taking a break. A new playlist, Team Throwdown, will be added to the mix mid-february.

We also have next week’s specialisation unlocks, which are as follows:

Rogue

Spartan optimization for single-operative missions which require a lone Spartan to be deployed on their own for incredibly long durations of time, even years if required. The Stability armor mod allows users to increase their aiming stability when being fired upon.

Tracker

Spartan optimization for long-range target tracking (trans-continent and off-world), particularly in scenarios where conventional tracking has failed or such a substantial time has passed that the trail has gone cold. The Requisition armor mod allows users the ability to recall their own ordnance requests in order to acquire more helpful weapons in the field.
