Bungie Day Blog of Raining Recon

Two days from now, 7/7/09, is Bungie Day. Why should you care? Why, because Bungie day is always great for Halo and Bungie Fans. Last year we got a free map in Cold Storage, this year there's a chance to win some Recon Armor early, face Bungie in matchmaking, and play some community maps. The've also teased releasing some screenshots for the ODST multiplayer maps.

All Day 7/7, there will be a special Halo 3 playlist called "Bungie Vs. The World". It will be 4v4 on 35 brand new community-Forged maps (made on Sandbox and Foundry). Bungie Employees will be playing in this playlist all day in teams of four. If you manage to come across a Bungie team (You can tell them by their flaming helmets) and beat them, your team just earned themselves some Recon Armor. If you're unlucky and DON'T run across Bungie, there are still some unknown metrics you can complete and get Recon Armor.


Me and some other dudes from GB are going to be playing, and we're going to hopefully beat Bungie. Even if we don't it should be good times, and an opportunity to check out some sweet community maps. You can check all of the maps that will be in the playlist here, and Bungie should be posting their roster of teams with the times they'll be playing soon. If any of you guys want to hit up some Halo on 7/7, send a friend request to beat82 and we'll see if we can't get a GB team rolling.

@Sweep: We'll be playing with a rotating roster of people all day, some from GB, some people from real life, etc.

You'd also need the newest map pack (Mythic) to play, which I assume you don't have. Should be good times though :) Starts at 1 AM PDT tonight

Lies, you fan-boy.

 If you need anyone else just send me an invite, I should be playing most of the day. Chances of actually finding a team of Bungie employees is slim though.

Real....life? *Shudder*

I'd be all up for it, but shockingly I have not got the maps.

Cool, I'm real glad my 360 bricked.

I'm gonna go outside or something, God dammit.

Lies, if you have room for one more, you know I am your man.

Damn it, I really need to buy the map packs. I've been trying to hold out for ODST, but stuff like this is making it so hard :(

@Lies: That sounds great. I'll send you a friend request and hopefully we can play tomorrow. My gamertag is WolverineAR.

Posted by Zeouterlimits

Has been fantastic so far, so man laughs. Really enjoyed some of the community maps.

Posted by Gargantuan

I won't buy the maps for this. You're not fooling me, bungie.
