Halo 4 Flood Mode: new details, screens & medal list here

Halo 4’s Flood Mode brings back the opinion-splitting enemies from previous Halo titles, and throws Spartans against them. They’re more deadly than before, but you can also earn a slew of new medals for your trouble. Check them out below.

Over at Waypoint, 343 Industries went into more detail on the mode, “Flood is the spiritual successor to Infection, a fan-favorite game type from Halo 3 and Reach. Our goal was to recreate it and push the mode to be new and different from previous versions.”

“As both War Games and Spartan Ops fit within the fiction of the UNSC Infinity, we wanted to use Halo fiction in this mode too, which led to us to create the Flood form in Multiplayer. Flood-converted humans are much faster and focus on melee attacks, so they were a natural fit for Infection’s successor.”

“Halo 4’s Flood mode is a round-based, ten-player game. It is a true asymmetric experience with the added twist of dynamic teams; this really changes things up as each game is different, especially in the incredibly intense and high-action final seconds.”

“At the beginning of each round, two players spawn as Flood forms and eight players spawn as Survivors. Survivors are standard Spartans equipped with shotguns and magnums, while Flood move very quickly and can only use a melee attack.”

“When a Survivor gets killed by a Flood, the Survivor will convert and respawn as a Flood. The round ends if a Survivor makes it to 3:00 or if all players are converted to Flood.”

Simple, no? Here is the medal list in full. Also, we have screens below. Enjoy!
