Amidst the countless hours spent playing Halo in its myriad of forms, there are several moments that tend to stand out among the rest. Late night campaign runs, last second flag-caps, hilarious custom Forge fests, and many, many more. Holding a particularly special place in this upper echelon of experiences is a brilliant gem in the Halo crown: Firefight. Like the franchise itself, Firefight has grown and evolved – from its sweaty palms-inducing, survival-focused origins in Halo 3: ODST to the frenetic and fast paced enemy onslaughts of its Halo: Reach incarnation. Whether it was running laps in a Prowler in Lost Platoon or holding the line in Alpha Site, eliminating Elite Generals in Glacier or the Viva Piñata-palooza of Gruntpocalypse – for millions of us, Firefight is a mode that’s offered many a memory.
And now, it’s time to welcome a new member of the Firefight family into the fold. Blending the large-scale mayhem of Halo 5: Guardians’ epic Warzone experience with bigger encounters, badder bosses, and brilliant new objectives, Warzone Firefight is a bold new flavor for each beloved mode, and we’re excited to make this experience part of Halo 5: Guardians this Summer. If you’re new to the concept, let’s take a look at what you’ll be getting yourself into when you strap on your Mjolnir boots and step foot onto the field of battle.
