Halo 5: Guardians – Battle of Shadow and Light Update! (48 New REQs & BTB)

Next week, Halo 5: Guardians will receive it’s first major update titled “Battle of Shadow and Light”!

The update releases the week of November 16th and with it comes 48 New REQs & Big Team Battle (8v8). BTB will launch next week with 4 maps made in forge. Those maps are Deadlock, Basin, Guillotine, and Recurve. BTB will function just like Arena – so if you want classic large scale action without the chaos of REQs this is for you.

However, if you’re a REQ collecting addict like myself, here are the 48 new REQs that are being added to the game.

  • Ultra Rare Shinobi Armor Set
  • Uncommon Tracer Armor Set
