I think it's a pretty tough call to say breakout 1.0 was way more popular then 2.0. I know people who liked one and not the other and visa versa. Remeber, 343I changed the original breakout because it wasn't doing well and they were trying to draw more fans. If that succeeded or not is definitely up for debate.Vegeto30294 wrote:People straight up hated Breakout 2.0, the ideal wish people wanted was to remove 2.0 and bring back 1.0ZagReAt0Ne wrote:you're lucky then.

You know what it's like to have to fight 3 people when everyone has a pistol? It's impossible. and then to have weaker players on your team spawn next to you and attract gunfire.
I'm going to stop playing Halo now. BREAKOUT 2.0 was the best and you can't even play it in custom games!
Like for almost all of 2018 it was in the bottom 5 playlists in the game. There were moments where Mythic Firefight had more numbers and that playlist only appears for 3 days a week.
Overall, breakout in general isn't that popular with the majority of halo fans. I think this elimination playlist is a happy medium and think at some point all 3 game types will end up being 33.3% chance of getting any of them. Just give it some time.
Funny, I have a friend who had the opposite experience as you lolJordanpischke wrote:I've pretty much only played halo 5 for breakout and now with this new elimination playlist I've yet to even get to play breakout.... every single game I've played so far has been extermination. Its a alright game mode, but it's not what I want to play.
