We've worked with the community to find, create, and polish brand new maps and modes for the Action Sack playlist. After weeks of collaboration, we are happy to say that they're ready for prime time.
These wacky minigames need to meet a handful of requirements and pass the strictest tests of all community creations to be considered for this illustrious playlist. Specifically, all Action Sack modes must:
- Achieve the state standard on the "Do I Know What's Happening?" Test
- Place extremely high on our "Utterly Ridiculous" Index
- Have a Fun Factor of at least 117%.
Of course none of these tests are real, but it does feel like every one of these offerings would score incredibly high if they were. Whether you're in the middle of a magical duel, avoiding lawnmowers, or pushing pigs around, you can expect these modes to get quite crazy.
But don't take my word for it – jump in to Halo 5 and take a look at the new minigames you can find in the playlist today!

While the two above may be the only ones getting some visual changes, you can expect a few other fan-favorites to be sticking around. The minigames that are being carried forward are Mongoose Sumo, Paintball, Mantis Breakout, the original Riftball court, Minotaurs, Diminishing King, Crazy King, and Snowball Fight. All in all, that means the playlist has been updated to have a total of 21 fun-filled modes for you and your friends to enjoy.
A big thanks to all of our community members who collaborated to get everything ready for this. We're all really excited for you to jump in and give the newly refreshed Action Sack a go!
