Halo 3 Double XP Weekend: Legendary Brawl

The Double XP just keeps on coming doesn't it? This week's Halo 3 flavor playlist is known as Legendary Brawl and is a ranked free-for-all playlist that requires the new Legendary Map Pack. While that is a bit unfortunate, most out there bought this pack now that the first one is now free (basically six maps for $10). Since the playlist is both ranked and every man for himself, Bungie notes that it'll be a good opportunity to finish off your achievements. The twelve man games are online now, and will be until 2am Pacific time on Monday.

Another COD4 Double XP Weekend: April 25-27


These things are certainly becoming popular, we guess devs discovered that people like getting twice the reward for normal "work." Last time the event was the release of COD4's first map pack. This time it's the same thing, only for PS3, and since the maps are already out on 360, we get the Double XP Weekend too. The specific start and stop times for North America are from 12:01 AM on Friday, April 25 to 11:59 PM on Sunday, April 27. And for those European gamers the Double XP Weekend is completely different, beginning at 12:01 AM GMT on Friday, May 2 and concluding at 11:59 PM GMT on Sunday, May 4. Mark your calenders gamers!

Bungie brings back the SWAT


Red team go! Bungie has announced that they will be reactivating Team SWAT for Double XP this weekend in Halo 3 social matchmaking after the original playlist was removed last week. Beginning at today at 2PM PST and ending on at 2AM PST on Monday. In order to balance the playlists Team Hardcore has been removed to make way for the upcoming MLG playlist that is set to go live as soon as the Double XP weekend ends on Monday. Time to get tactical folks!

Team SWAT makes its limited Halo 3 debut

Just a little reminder for our obsessive Halo 3 gamers, right now Bungie just rolled out Team SWAT into Halo 3's search-able matchmaking playlists. The social Team SWAT playlist, a Halo 2 gametype where Spartans are stripped of their motion tracker and shields, will be available through March 23rd and offer up twice as many experience points as part of their previously announced Double XP Weekends. The same type of weekend funnery that the limited Griffball playlist was a part of. So, hop online, practice your headshots and rack up the XP. We know we'll be participating and winning ... often.
