There will be 14 Premium Arena REQ bundles that will be released every week. Players can expect two packs for every week, with seven weeks laid out in a similar fashipn as Warzone REQ Bundle.

“The bundle delivers randomised content focused on unlockable visual customisation REQs, including armours, visors, weapon skins and more,” said 343 Industries via the official Halo Waypoint blog. “These packs provide a greater chance at unlocking some of the rarest REQs, including Mythic and Legendary Items.”

The good thing about the premium Arena REQs bundle is that “Halo 5: Guardians” players are reportedly guaranteed to get the Mark V Alpha armour set. This is an homage to the one that Master Chief had on in “Halo: Combat Evolved.”

“Halo 5 Guardians” Arena REQ Bundles will be offered at US$24.99 (approx. AU$___). Players can only buy it once for every Xbox Live account. The Warzone REQ Bundle is still up for grabs, at least until Feb. 16 arrives and it is replaced by the Arena REQ bundle as the featured premium pack. However, the Warzone REQ bundle will still be available via Xbox.com, Xbox One dashboard and other retail locations.

For those playing Forge in “Halo 5 Guardians,” there’s an interesting new creation that would put a new spin to racing. Taking inspiration from “Star Wars: The Phantom Menace,” there is now a podracing map in “Halo 5: Guardians.”

GamesRadar spotted the new map via Halo Forge. Created by one CaptainDireWolf, the map is a recreation of the Boonta Eve Classic race from the first episode of the franchise. According to the source, this map was made possible thanks to a glitch that lets players attach objects to Ghost vehicles.

While this is podracing from “Star Wars: The Phantom Menace,” players are restricted by the one-hit kill. Once the vehicle crashes or once a pod is shot, it’s the ticket to being taken out of the race. A video clip below shows how the podracing goes in Halo Forge.
