Download | Shownotes
For the last two months, Waypoint has been giving us updates in their weekly bulletins on the weapon tuning undergoing for Halo 4, hoping to restore some balance to the weapons in the Halo sandbox. Thanks to the efforts of the community and the feedback 343i has received through their forums, we now have the final set of changes of the weapon tuning. Granted, the actual numbers are not supplied for all the changes, but having a final picture gives us a good picture of what’s to come in the next few days. Waypoint is also holding a community playdate on Monday when the update drops. Enjoy

We are two weeks away from the new weapon balancing being updated across the board for matchmaking. Not too long ago, some community members were flown out to 343 to play test the current implementation and got some good quality feedback for the content of this week’s bulletin. In some other, not specifically Halo news, the official trailer for Destiny was released. It’s a mix of live action and in-engine capture and it is looking really good. Nak3d Eli takes this seat as this week’s co-host to bring you this epic news. Enjoy
