On Monday Halo 4 will be getting a decent sized update. Halo Waypoint has announced an update to the multiplayer playlists for rumble pit. Also, the day before the Championship Bundle DLC releases, players will be receiving an armor mod update and new forerunner themed spartan ops.

Here is the partial list from Halo Waypoint about the changes we will be seeing:

“Next Monday, we will release two additional armor mods free of charge for you to enjoy, and we’ll be using a Title Update to deliver them. These will be released one day before the Champions Bundle launches on Tuesday, and you’ll immediately be able to incorporate these new Support Upgrades into your Loadouts and dominate.

  • Recharge: New Support Upgrade available to all players. Recharge decreases the time it takes for your shields to recharge.
  • Survivor: New Support Upgrade available to all players. Survivor ejects you out of a vehicle if it’s about to explode.

The following Slayer and objective game types from the Halo 4 Global Championship playlist will be added to the Rumble Pit offerings:

  • Haven Oddball
  • Skyline Rumble BRs
  • Simplex Rumble BRs
  • Abandon King of the Hill
  • Landfall King of the Hill

While the above game types will add variety to the playlist, a Slayer game type will always be present in the first voting slot. As always, we want to know your thoughts on these game types and what else you’d like to see in Rumble Pit. Head over to the Rumble Pit Feedback Thread next week to join the conversation.”

In Spartan Ops Matchmaking, we’ll be offering a selection of Forerunner-themed missions:

  • Episode 1, Chapter 3: The Challenge
  • Episode 1, Chapter 4: Sacred
  • Episode 2, Chapter 5: Gagarin
  • Episode 5, Chapter 1: Spartan Miller
  • Episode 5, Chapter 2: Nothing Can Go Wrong

Overall this seems like a nice fresh update that will mix in very will with the new DLC. Checkout the full list of changes from Halo Waypoint.
