Well technically Mythic FF is a featured mode. Just doesn’t have the gold star next to it.
the sad part of that is the featured playlists are exclusively pvp gametypes. firefight has never ever been on those featured lists. Which is a bit of a bummer. Would love it if they could include a pve option into the rotation every now and then. firefight is hardly a dead aspect of the game, its just overlooked alot lol
Unyshek (Community Manager for Halo) has had this question asked a lot in Twitter.
Double XP ended April 29, 2020Damn, are there any chances that they come back?
It’s something they’re looking at.
I assume it’ll be back at some point in time. Just not sure when. Until then if you need XP the featured playlists for each week have double XP. They’re marked with a gold star in the matchmaking menus.
Mythic has the same Double XP effect as a featured playlist.
With that being said, would be cool to see different featured playlists in FF. Something like Firefight Turbo, Grunts only or something crazy.
Interesting I have never done mythic, apparently it needs a premade group to run? At least I could never do it as a solo player. I guess thats just an issue on my end personally as i tend to be a lone wolf player, I'll join a matchmade game, do my best and see who sticks around for subsequent games. I havent gone in to see if any of the pvp style gametypes needed a certain number of fireteam members, maybe they also require friends/spartan companies in which case for the average grunt it would all be an even story, play solo get lesser rewards?
Even so, some love for the solo queuing pve (and pvp?) players would be great too! on a nice rotating playlist, im fine getting 1 week out of 4 or whatever, so long as the love covers all the core gametypes
