343 Industries is making some changes to Halo 5’s multiplayer to bring more variations to all playlists.

The Halo 5 weekly update is live with details on the winning weekend playlist, and major changes to map rotation across all playlists.

First up, Shotty Snipers has won the votes and will be available from now through Monday morning across all Arena maps with increased XP.

Orion, the map that’s been causing many players to quit whenever it comes up rotation, will be removed from all playlists until all glitches are fixed.

More importantly, however, is that we’re getting more variations of maps and game type combinations. This means the Team Arena playlist, SWAT, Free for All, and even Slayer, will be more interesting, and we’re less likely to see repeats.

343 also said it’s working on improving spawns across all maps.
