Bungie Updates Matchmaking Playlists

Bungie has updated their matchmaking playlists today and are in full effect. If you’ve played matchmaking then you probably know how much Shotty Snipers ends up being the match. This update should help ease your pain. Bungie has updated the playlist so that Shotty Snipers will not appear as much and if vetoed, it will not appear again. YAY!

Here is what Bungie had to say:

Halo 3’s Matchmaking Playlists, just like Halo 2’s, are dynamic and ever-changing entities. Even now in the perilous Bungie towers, we’re looking at new hoppers, gametypes and modes to test for future iterations and changes of these playlists. Multiplayer Lead Tyson Green and test wunderkind David Gasca sent the following list of changes to us — and these changes are live now:

  • Big Team Battle matches are now 16-player affairs.
  • In the Team Slayer playlist, the appearance of Shotty Snipers has been greatly reduced.
  • Now, when players veto Shotty Snipers, the game that results from the veto will not be Shotty Snipers.
  • In one-sided VIP matches, the attacking team will now see a waypoint for the VIP they are hunting.
  • In Lone Wolves, Slayer gametypes will appear more frequently.
