The “Halo 5 Warzone Firefight” expansion is almost here and we rounded up all the things you need to know about this new development to the game.
According to Xbox Wire, “Halo 5 Warzone Firefight” is the biggest expansion yet to “Halo 5: Guardians“. It is therefore not surprising that the new content will be packed with all sorts of new content.
IGN reports that after almost a month of speculation, “Warzone Firefight” gets a June 29 official release date. A beta for the game held last April allowed for more improvements to the update. Since the game’s release last October, “Halo 5 Warzone Firefight” marks the eighth free content release for “Halo 5: Guardians”.
‘Halo 5 Warzone Firefight’ best features
Just like any update, “Halo 5 Warzone Firefight” offers a bunch of interesting stuff. As per Game Rant, “Halo 5” fans get a “never-before-seen” boss as well as a new vehicle.
The new boss is Grunt Goblin and Game Rant describes the character as follows:
“The Grunt Goblin is a new enemy type added to the Halo 5 sandbox, and has both Legendary and Mythic variants; it’s essentially a giant mech suit piloted by an Elite Grunt.”
If its description isn’t sinister enough, Game Rant elaborates that the Goblin Grunt is quite a challenge. The site says that the Goblin carries a double-barreled heavy needler and grenade launcher. It is also capable of targeting eight players in a single attack.
Meanwhile, Game Rant describes the new vehicle as “a new flying craft never before seen in the Halo universe.”
