Halo: CE – Master Chief Collection, Maps, Fuel Rod Gun, Flamethrower!

These 2 new screenshots come from this week’s bulletin. One from the map Battle Creek, and the other from the map Chill Out.

Over the past few weeks, I’ve seen inquiries from those of you who want to see and hear about Halo: Combat Evolved within Halo: The Master Chief Collection. While we don’t have footage just yet (that is on the way, friends), we’ve got some in-game screenshots from Halo: Combat Evolved running on Xbox One, made them into fancy wallpapers, and also answered a few frequently asked questions.


From these frequently asked questions we learned that

  • All of the game types and custom game type options from Halo: CE will be available in the custom games menu.
  • For Halo CE you’ll be able to find games with radar enabled and disabled in separate specific playlists. Options like these apply for all games within Halo: The Master Chief Collection, as there will be a variety of experiences in Matchmaking that cater to a variety of playstyles.
  • Once again, it was confirmed that all PC exclusive maps for Halo CE and Halo 2 will be available in both custom games and matchmaking
  • 343 then confirmed that the Fuel Rod Gun and Flamethrower from the PC version of Halo: CE will be available as well. You will have the ability to select your weapon set in Halo: CE from a brand new list of weapon sets, including “classic,” which will not include the Flamethrower or Fuel Rod Gun if you so choose.


Even though Halo CE Anniversary is being used for the Master Chief Collection, the multiplayer will feature the original experience and not the Anniversary/Reach multiplayer. This means that Halo CE’s multiplayer will be playable on Xbox Live for the first time ever on November 11th thanks for the Master Chief Collection.

Halo CE, Halo 2, and Halo 3 coming to Steam? (Rumors)

ImageThis is just a rumor but it’s a very interesting one. There’s a post over on neogaf (click here) that has a bunch of information and rumors in regards to potential upcoming games to Steam. Among this list appear:

Obviously there is no official word, but there is a community page on Steam for Halo 3 which is giving a lot of Halo fans some glimmer of hope.

Could this be true? I for one would welcome the trilogy to Steam. I owned Halo CE for the PC first then transitioned over to the Xbox after sometime before the release of Halo 2.

What are your thoughts?
