ODST Slayer

By -

To help celebrate the upcoming 10th anniversary of Halo 3: ODST, we've launched the brand-new ODST Slayer playlist in Halo 5! 


In ODST Slayer, players load into each match equipped with the Tactical Magnum and Silenced SMG, and will need to scavenge for Power Weapons around the maps. Although you may have a little more movement than your typical helljumper with the inclusion of Clamber, Sprint and Slide, we recommend that you don't peek around corners too far as the Shield and Health properties have been fine-tuned to replicate the feeling of Halo 3: ODST's health model. For those of you who haven't played Halo 3: ODST, this means that your health will feel lower and therefore the lethality of every weapon will feel much higher.

Together all of these aspects create a well-balanced, nostalgic mode that ultimately results in a fun celebration of Halo 3: ODST's 10th Anniversary. 


Each of the maps in this playlist should evoke the same vibes you got when playing Halo 3: ODST ten years ago. Prepare to drop onto these ten war-torn battlegrounds in the playlist or bookmark them using the links below and enjoy them for yourself in custom games.

Action Sack Refresh

By Unyshek -

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. Don't just take our word for it though, jump in to Halo 5 and take a look at all of the new minigames today!

Mythic Arena

By Unyshek -

Mythic Arena is a hybrid between new and old Halo experiences, evoking memories of the past while maintaining a modern feel in a fun and competitive setting. By partnering closely with the community, we were able to build out six new maps and five Mythic variants of beloved game modes for this playlist: Assault, Capture the Flag, King of the Hill, Oddball, and Slayer. As a result, we've created a fully-fledged new ranked experience for Halo 5 players to enjoy this season.

Husky Raid

By Unyshek -

In response to requests from the community, we're excited to announce that Husky Raid is now available in a dedicated playlist for a limited time! While that does mean you won't be able to find it in Action Sack anymore, you should be happy knowing that this new playlist will be filled with plenty of good times of its own, and it will indeed be quite husky.
