Fuck, now I really want to get back to the US so I can get at my copy now! I'll play the shit out of that until they lock it away and have it only available to people who have the new map DLC.

Hooray for weekly updates! They just need to add Griffball and Big Team CTF and all will be coolbeans in Halo-land.

(also, DMRs ftw!)

SWAT with pistols is where it is at, pussies play with BRs. I don't even have the damn game....

I saw it and thought " Hey, Demoskinos was wrong, Halo does have that mode." I had no idea it just went online haha, great mode though and I prefer this mode in small maps.

Just waiting on Grifball now.

Happy to see SWAT back. I played a match of it earlier and it was a lot of fun, but Jesus, that mode makes me tense.

Glad it's its own playlist, I love Team SWAT but quickly grew sick of it around Reach's launch when every single game was voted to be SWAT in the Team Slayer playlist. Now I can just jump in for some sweet headshot goodness on my own terms.

I don't always play SWAT, but when I do, I only use pistols.

Horrible gametype. I really don't like it, glad I don't have to play it like Halo Reach's first week where it was in the slayer playlist. Ugh.

Wasn't Team Snipers in the Reach Slayer playlist too at first? Man they launched that game with some shitass playlists.

Is that the one with no shields so you basically die as fast as you do in call of duty? No thanks.

#16 Posted by Colourful_Hippie (4495 posts) -

@laserbolts: No, you just die instantly if it's a headshot.

This is not the Team Action Sack announcement.

Never been a big fan of SWAT. Never got the appeal.

waiting on the other 3 maps that havent been initiated into the play lists.

@Gamer_152: Yeah! Thats the fun man! Its the tension between getting wrecked or getting really lucky and getting a triple head-shot kill.

SWAT is awesome, should help me rack up battle rifle kills quicker.
