Latest Halo: MCC Patch Notes

By Michelle Balsan, 3 years ago
While 343 may be busily at work bringing Halo 3: ODST to Halo: The Master Chief Collection, that does not mean that they have ceased continuing to patch and tweak Master Chief Collection's issues. In fact, a new patch just went live yesterday, and here's the list of things that the patch addresses.

Improved matchmaking search success rates.
Made an update to reduce instances of “Awaiting Privileges” matchmaking errors.
Made an update to ensure player counts more reliably match the expected numbers for each playlist.
Fixed an issue where player would sometimes appear to be searching in an incorrect “FIND GAME” screen.
Added countdown sound effect to the voting timer.

Made an update to improve Halo 2: Anniversary network performance, specifically in regards to bandwidth spikes.
Made several improvements to party joining through the in-game Roster.
Made an update to ensure that the mute icon is visible while in Matchmaking.
Fixed an issue in Halo 4 where players could equip the same weapon as their primary and secondary weapons.

Made several improvements to stat tracking for Halo: CE, Halo 2, Halo 3, and Halo 4.
Made changes to Halo 3 and Halo 4 scoring to ensure that players are not penalized for destroying empty vehicles.

Lowered the music volume level in multiplayer menus.
Fixed an issue where friend emblems in roster would show up as default when exiting a game session.
Made updates to UI and menus to improve multiplayer status messaging, such as when a player joins your lobby.

Made an update to the Halo 2: Anniversary “Legacy” Stick Layout.

Made stability improvements across multiple titles for campaign and multiplayer.
The patch should already be applied the next time you fire up The Master Chief Collection.
