Halo 5: Guardian’s latest multiplayer update Hammer Storm went live today, adding new REQ’s, game modes and couple of fan-favourite weapons.
Arriving alongside the pistol in Halo 5 will be the Gravity Hammer, which will be available in Arena, Warzone and Forge for all your Spartan smashing needs.
And wherever there are Spartans wielding Gravity Hammers, Grifball isn’t far behind. Joining the community-favourite game mode will be Assault and Fiesta Slayer, the former a larger take on Grifball with additional guns and the latter bringing random starter weapons to Halo’s Deathmatch variant.
To cap it all off 343 have also thrown in a new map for Arena called Torque, a space station that features a symmetrical design and moving cover in the form of pistons. According to Halo Waypoint, the map will favour Capture the Flag and Assault game modes.
Head on over to Halo Waypoint for the full list of contents featured in Hammer Storm, including new stances, armour designs, weapon skins and a Legendary Storm Rifle that fires explosive plasma bolts. Snazzy.
Halo 5’s multiplayer has had numerous content added since its November launch, with updates Battle of Shadow and Light and Cartographers Gift both proceeding Hammer Storm.
Xbox Wire today released a few more details of the updates coming later this year, including the return of Firefight, a PvE mode which rose to popularity in Halo’s ODST and Reach.
Let us know what you think of 343’s latest update, the return of Grifball and Halo: CE’s iconic sidearm over in the forums.
