Team Doubles, Infinity CTF Join ‘Halo 4’ Matchmaking Next Week

Ready for some 2-on-2 “Halo 4” multiplayer? I hope so, because 343 Industries has announced that a Team Doubles playlist will be added to regular multiplayer matchmaking next week.

The new modes include Infinity Doubles, which is essentially your standard round of Slayer with two teams of two squaring off. The mode gives players instant respawns, radar and ordinance drops once you hit 70 points. The first dastardly duo to reach 300 points wins. There’s also the Doubles Pro mode, which ditches radar, ordianance drops and instant respawn. Players will have to pick from preset loadouts, which you can see below.

Loadout 1:
Starting Weapon – DMR
Secondary Weapon – Magnum
Armor Abilities – None
Tactical Mod – Resupply
Support Mod – Dexterity

Loadout 2:
Starting Weapon – BR
Secondary Weapon – Magnum
Armor Abilities – None
Tactical Mod – Resupply
Support Mod – Dexterity

Loadout 3:
Starting Weapon – LightRifle
Secondary Weapon – Magnum
Armor Abilities – None
Tactical Mod – Resupply
Support Mod – Dexterity

Loadout 4:
Starting Weapon – Carbine
Secondary Weapon – Magnum
Armor Abilities – None
Tactical Mod – Resupply
Support Mod – Dexterity

To top it all off, CTF Doubles has also joined the fray, allowing custom loadouts and radar with respawns that take 10 seconds. Flags take three seconds to return, 15 seconds to reset and don’t have to be at your home base in order for you to score.
