“Halo 5 Guardians” developer 343 Industries has rolled out a new update for the campaign version of the game. In lieu of the recently released Ghosts of Meridian, the developer deemed it was a good move to look back at the campaign and see what kind of changes may be implemented based on player feedback.

In the latest community update via Halo Waypoint, 343 Industries Designer Chris Proctor had shared that the team had been working on the updates from the players. Now they are able to share some issues found in “Halo 5 Guardians.”

Among these is the spike in difficulty for the Warden with every higher difficulty. Feedback has cited the Warden to be difficult to beat overall, thanks to his tactics, positioning and durability as an enemy. This is in tandem with hordes of enemies that also bring forth damage to the players.

There also needs to be some balancing for the two-player co-op and the single-player. The former is too difficult, while the latter is too easy for players. Other issues encountered include losing track of enemies in Forerunner and problems with Warthog gunners. Because of these, the developer has rolled out a new update that will generally balance out difficulties and enemies.

The specific changes are detailed in the link above. However, two-player and single-player have been decreased and increased in difficulty respectively. The Warden will also be more satisfying to fight, with lower difficulties, some weapons balanced and reduced AI power.

The “Halo 5 Guardians” campaign is not the only one to get an update. 343 Industries has also rolled out an Arena refreshed update for several maps like Coliseum, Fathom and Empire. Most of the fixes were either a reduction of respawn time and max ammo or movement of swapping of some weapons.

Fans who have taken a liking to the Fiesta will no longer be limited. The developer has also released an update that allows Fiesta CTF, Fiesta Strongholds and Fiesta Assault to be available in Custom Games. This allows the game variants to be accessible at any time.

For fans who were enjoying the “Halo 5 Guardians” Warzone Firefight beta, the developer has also extended the beta for an entire day. This takes the recent networking errors encountered during the testing phase, which had resulted in technical login problems.

Players can now enjoy the beta run of Warzone Firefight until April 19, 1:00 p.m. ET. According to Xbox Achievements, this is a great new mode, as it mixes the previous “Halo 3: ODST” and “Halo: Reach” modes, with the Warzone from “Halo 5 Guardians.”
