Best game mode for assassinations?

OP Akinola51

Aside from Warzone, what is the best game mode for assassinations?
BTB could be a good option especially if you have objective gametypes come up. Nothing in Ranked and probably not Super Fiesta.
If you not ranked super high, then definitely Arena HCS. The radar only picks up weapon fire and Spartan abilities (sprinting and boosting). You can easily maneuver into position for assassination around players while staying off radar. Once you get a higher rank, people you match with are obviously more in tune with the new radar, so it's not as easy but still possible. Just pay attention to your radar to see if you're making "noise" and don't shoot if you don't have to.

Snipers also works as there is zero radar of any kind.

Roaming King could also work. You know exactly where the hill is heading. Get ahead of it's path, wait behind cover, and as the other walks by, boom.

Caste Wars returns this Thursday. In that mode, the enemy team is usually moving in the same direction down a center lane, with a lot of things to hide behind. Stay put behind cover and watch as countless enemies present their back to you.

When Action Sack rotates in after that, it's bound to have a gametype in there that works for getting back smacks.

Finally, once Warzone Turbo returns at the end of August, instead of going through timed camo boosts, use Prophet's Bane, if you have any. As long as the weapon is in your hand, and you're not moving too fast, you have permanent camo. If you don't want to waste the sword energy on an assassination, switch weapons first, get that -Yoink-...assination and switch back for the camo.
A playlist without the motion tracker would be your best bet.

Thanks I didn’t realize the radar was weird in HCS

That's an odd way of saying better. :P
RIP WZ assault.
Team Arena. The radar only reveals you when you run, fire, or use spartan abilities.
Custom games with your friends so you can show off your cool assassination

Custom games don’t count for Spartan Company commendations however
