Halo 5 Monitor’s Bounty Update will also add an Observer Mode that will make spectating, casting and sharing Halo 5 matches much easier. Observer Mode was first featured during the 2016 Halo World Championships and after the update is released players can access it in custom game lobbies for matches of up to eight players and two teams.

Players can change the UI or toggle their camera angle, enabling players to view the match as they wish.

With this update, players will also be able to gift each other with certain Gold REQ packs. To help players how to use this feature, all players will receive a free pack they can’t open but they can gift it to someone.

Players will be required to be Spartan Rank 5 or higher in order to purchase more gift-able REQ packs which can only be purchased with cash.

That is not all, as Halo 5 Monitor’s Bounty Update will bring a slew of new weapons and more content. Check out the image below showcasing all the REQ items that will come with the update along with items that will be available in 2017.
