New Arena Map: Riptide – Scarred by wars both ancient and new, the Created have judged this planet to be in need to significant remediation and remodeling. Players will need to quickly learn the winding routes of steel and sand to excel in the weathered structures of Riptide.
New Warzone Assault Map: Urban – A dynamic combination of social engagement, reconstruction, and security operations was embarked on by the UNSC to disrupt nascent rebel movements, contain extremist politicians, and deny the Insurrection freedom of maneuver. Urban is one of Warzone Assault’s open maps with many sightlines.
Halo 2 Battle Rifle – This Legendary weapon first made its appearance in Halo 2 and has now returned in Halo 5: Guardians as a Mythic loadout weapon REQ to deploy in Warzone. The Halo 2 Battle Rifle is also unlocked in Forge for those who want to recreate Halo 2 maps and take their nostalgia to the next level.
