[Locked] Halo 3 Multiplayer population

OP Donuts are Love

So how many people play Halo 3 nowadays? Last time i popped in Halo 3, the population was little more than 200 :(
Well that is true, but expect a huge spike when the game becomes backwards compatible. The question is, how long will this population boost be? Even after the major boost, there should still be quite a few people playing halo 3. I just hope it's a stable enough population to support most of the playlists.
H3 population it's gonna increase whit BC dude trust me
Population was at 250 yesterday afternoon.
Ya typically that's the normal population. Also keep in mind that sometimes it's glitched. However when Halo 3 becomes BC for the Xbox one the population will most likely increase so be expecting for that to happen!
(150<x<250)
Today, at one point, the population was 1,350 something.

That's pretty impressive for an FPS that's going to soon be a decade old...
Once it comes to backwards compatibility I will be living on H3.
I popped in Halo 3 to download the DLC, i went to Team Slayer and population was at 0 😳 I can only find matches in Social Slayer or Lone Wolves whenever I go on.
Also, i do hope to see a spike in population but it'll most likely be brief like with Halo: Reach, i believe I saw it go up to like 15,000 when it became BC, nowadays it's under 10,000

Halo:Reach was a terrible game, both in multiplayer and campaign design.

Halo 3 has been the most popular so some might stick around due to nostalgia and how the game just works.
Can people who play on 360 play vs xb1 kids? when bc hits? I have no idea how that works

Yes they will! BC games play exactly like they do on 360 on XB1. Still 30fps. Only difference will be controller designs and screenshots etc

The reason you can only find matches in Social Slayer and Lone Wolves is because most players don't have all the DLC, and there are still DLC restrictions on those playlists.
Do people still play on the original halo 3 game and not the MCC?
Make Halo 3 great again.
I just play reach because you can still play just about every game type
Do you guys know if Halo 3 players can play with Halo master chief collection players? My older brother got the MCC for me cause my one friend started playing his Halo 3 BC. But it’s weird. MCC matchmakes halo 1-4 at the same time for certain playlists. I thought I could choose which I wanted to play and just be taken to that titles main screen. I’m yet to attempt playing with my friend so I figured I’d ask around.

No they can't I'm afraid. Halo 3 players on the 360 can match up with the backwards compatible version on the Xbox One as they are the same game, it's just running under emulation. If you are playing Halo 3 in MCC you can only play with other MCC players.
