Halo 4: Team Doubles to Join Matchmaking Next Week

New updates to Halo 4 will bring about new additions to the current playlist. Accompanying that will also be the unlocking of a couple of specializations – Rogue and Tracker.

Rogue: Spartan optimization for single-operative missions which require a lone Spartan to be deployed on their own for incredibly long durations of time, even years if required. The Stability armor mod allows users to increase their aiming stability when being fired upon.

Tracker: Spartan optimization for long-range target tracking (trans-continent and off-world), particularly in scenarios where conventional tracking has failed or such a substantial time has passed that the trail has gone cold. The Requisition armor mod allows users the ability to recall their own ordnance requests in order to acquire more helpful weapons in the field.

343 Industries has confirmed that Team Doubles will be a part of the regular matchmaking from next week.

First up is Infinity Doubles, where respawns are instant, radar is available and Ordnance Drops at the 70 point mark. First team to score 300 points wins.

Loadout 1:

  • Starting Weapon – DMR
