[Locked] MCC Playlist Update - 2/12/2020

OP Postums

Good Morning Friends,

Welcome back to another weekly Playlist Update for Halo: The Master Chief Collection! Today we have some updates to the XP awarded for Freeze Tag, a part of the Winter Contingency event, and we are kicking off the Valentines Day week-long event by adding a new Firefight Doubles playlist option. With the Valentines event, love is in the air across Halo: The Master Chief Collection.

This week only you can earn your very own “Put a Ring On It” nameplate to wear your heart on your sleeve. To earn this nameplate, complete 10 matches in any 2v2 matchmaking playlist or Firefight Doubles; the latest addition to Halo: Reach playlist offerings. Firefight Doubles is a Heroic two-player Firefight playlist that contains a variety of single round game variants.

Please note that with all these events, completing the requirements will NOT automatically unlock the nameplate reward. These nameplates are manually granted by the team which will occur on a rolling weekly basis. Full details for today’s playlist update and ongoing events below:

Firefight Doubles Game Types
  • Score Attack
  • Gruntpocalypse
  • Skirmiggedon
  • Crash Site
  • Sniper Attack
Valentines Day Event
  • Duration: February 12th at 10:00 AM PST through February 18th
  • Requirements: Complete 10 matchmade games in any Social or Ranked 2v2 playlist or Firefight Doubles which will be added on February 12th
Winter Contingency Event
  • Duration: February 5-18
  • Requirements: Complete at least 5 matches in the ‘Winter Contingency’ featured category of Social Matchmaking to earn the Focus Rifle nameplate and complete at least 15 matches to earn the Winter Contingency nameplate
  • Increased XP awarded for medals granted in this game type
Whether you are looking to earn nameplate, have fun, or just relax with a friend; there is something for everyone to play this week in MCC! For nameplate hunters, don’t forget to complete your matches in either the Winter Contingency featured category in Social Matchmaking, or grab a friend and get in on the action to earn the Put a Ring On It nameplate all week in any 2v2 playlist or Firefight Doubles!

But hurry! You only have until 2/19 to earn this nameplate! As always, thank you for playing and we will see you online!
