Almost a year after its release, Halo 5: Guardians continues to get updates from Industries, due in part to the amount of support from the community. This time, the acclaimed multiplayer mode brought to life in Halo 2, Action Sack, is returning to the franchise in Halo 5: Guardians. In a recent Industries community update , details some of the new features and variants Action Sack provides for other modes:. This all-new Action Sack offering, consisting solely of community-created minigames, is now available in matchmaking.
When the Multiplayer Team solemnly swore that they were up to no good, we had no idea what could be brewing in the cauldron on the second floor.

When we started looking to bring minigames to Halo 5, our decision to use community-made minigames was easy.

Pieing is the act of throwing a delicious confectionery delight at a person or people, and can often be an act of political disagreement. Or, if you work at Industries, it can also be a loving, philanthropic act in which you meticulously aim and forcefully chuck desserts at your co-workers to raise money for charity. Just last week we held our very own pie-throwing event, where employees could purchase a pie, throw it at someone’s face, and the proceeds were donated to a very worthy cause. Earlier in the week, an email was sent to the entire studio notifying everyone that they could anonymously nominate someone to be hit in the face with a pie.
This excited many, and also resulted in several employees sending an immediate follow-up mail letting everyone know that they would be sick that day. Come Friday morning, a hit list of would-be pie recipients hit our inboxes, and as some started to make pies in the kitchen, others crept away to their cars and left work several hours early. In retrospect, I cannot blame them. The pies, pre-madness. Do you recognize these tables?

The developer also noted that those who quit out of a game will lose and forfeit any REQ points, XP, and will suffer a temporary cooldown penalty in Arena matchmaking.
Players must make sure they avoid the banhammer by not doing the following:. The duration of each ban is dependent on the offense and the more infractions a player gets, the more severe the punishment. This gives you a chance to top your performance from last season, and see how high of a rank you can achieve.
