Bungie: More Team SWAT after Double XP wknd


Given that the first Double XP Weekend playlist was very popular and got cut short, it was a bit obvious that Bungie would be bringing back the Team SWAT goodness for this weekend. The fan-favorite Team SWAT playlist that saw so much play in Halo 2 isn't in the "default" set of Halo 3 playlists, and in the Bungie Weekly What's Update the issue of Team SWAT's permanence was teased at a little, saying that : "As for SWAT's long term future, don't worry, this isn't the last you'll be seeing of it."
So that's vague but good.

The rest of the update concerns various Halo 3 current events, mainly the Heroic maps becoming free, and the upcoming MLG playlist. The fun stuff comes in the form of the new Blackout content, which consists of a mouse-over image of the map's overhead view showing the weapon placement (almost identical), as well as another mouse-over image of the Lockout/Blackout sniper tower comparison, which we have handily converted to the animated GIF accompanying this post!
