I like both breakout 1 and 2 though I started playing Halo 5 in December 2016 I mostly played Breakout 2 until elimination playlist came out. I still have more days in Breakout than every other playlist combined, unless you add customs.
Turn breakout back to the way it was meant to be 1.0 not 2.0 not elimination but the true breakout! Where there where no shotguns as secondary weapons you had to pick them up as a power weapon it was like hardcore team sabotage. Now its just a bunch of shotgun tools! With no skill and laggy network great job guys so much for your dedicated servers lol.

I have just recently returned to Halo as I now have more time on my hands for Xbox. Breakout is what kept me playing ranked playlists. But this Extermination? What is that? It’s not breakout. It’s slayer. Now 2.0 on the other hand I don’t mind other than there shouldn’t be radar and I don’t agree with the full shields either. OG Breakout was by far my favorite game mode. Please bring it back! We miss it.
No one likes extermination, I've been consistently champ in the elimination playlist and no one that I play with likes it. Straight garbage.
Any plans to change this playlist, even just to breakout 1 & 2?

I think if you tracked how many people quit out or go idle in extermination games, that alone should tell you something. Really ruins the experience of a ranked game type.

Extermination is a game mode in which you have to eliminate the entire enemy team before they respawn.
Games last 2 minutes and multiple rounds with 5 victories to win the game
Breakout 1.0 exists, it is in the playlist, you just have to get lucky.

Everyone liked it when it was a rotational playlist. Why don't they like it now?

Please remove extermination off of rank playlist , It was better to stay in social. The game was ruin when you guys mess up breakout 2.0 . I left H5 because of that dumb combine you guys did ( Elimination)
Extermination has got to go. I read another post where someone mentioned adding Breakout to the Ranked playlist. LOVE that idea. But keep extermination out. Its difficult enough trying to get the Unstoppable and Against All Odds Commendations completed. Extermination makes it near impossible and its basically Slayer anyways. Breakout with a flag. 1.0 or 2.0. Don't matter. Keep it simple. It was perfect before extermination.

I think it’s a fun game mode, but I would like it if it was just a Breakout playlist.

I’m not sure where elimination could be placed though if anywhere.
I like breakout 2 the most. Extermination was interesting at first but it would work better as a custom game as it used to be.

Was told to post my breakout feedback here, so I’m copying and pasting my thread here.

For those of you that have played what was once the “Breakout” playlist, it was a single mode that depending on the season would be 1 of 2 game mode variants of breakout. Breakout is by far my favourite halo mode ever, and has been what keeps me on Halo 5 as much as I am.

However 343 decided to change it into the “Elimination” playlist we have now. It includes both breakout modes which is perfectly fine, as they are actually similar to eachother. But the big mistake was the addition of Extermination.

Extermination is just about nothing like the breakout modes which is 2 of the 3 modes. If this was a social playlist that would be ok, but in a competitive playlist setting this simply does not work due to Extermination being something entirely different than the other 2 modes.

Imagine Swat and Slayer being merged into the same competitive playlist, doesn’t make much sense now does it? Well it’s the exact same kind of problem that Extermination is causing.

Before someone doesn’t think and decides to say “you just want it gone because you suck at it”, I win most of my Extermination matches and often end up carrying. It pads up my KDA nicely, however it doesn’t change the fact that it ruins the playlist.

My suggestion for a solution would be to make Extermination become it’s own playlist, whether it would be ranked or not doesn’t matter (however it plays more liked a ranked one). I know there is an issue which is keeping population from spreading too much throughout all the playlists, so if this would be a problem then simply make it a rotational playlist or remove it all together.

Making this change would in my opinion, and many of the community’s greatly improve and fix the Elimination playlist.

Hopefully my criticism came across as constructive and not rude, but this NEEDS to be changed.

That's the majority consensus in this thread. Extermination really needs to be moved to a rotational social playlist or Team Arena. It doesn't belong with Breakout.
343 continues to ignore the community. Despite every page of this thread being filled with suggestions and criticism, nothing has changed.

Thats ok, there are plenty of other fun games I can play that actually listen. Proud to say I haven’t touched halo 5 in over 2 weeks :)
