anyone try it yet? Curious if there is a download or not...

Haven't tried it yet, but I think it's just an updated playlist.

Been playing a bit today. 4 matches so far. Completed 3 of the 4 no problem. On the last one we lost in the 3rd round trying to defend our garage. AI spawned a Phaeton inside the garage and wrecked house.

It is fun. I think the beta only has one map, Escape from ARK. At least that is all that has loaded for me so far.

They throw a mix of objectives at you. Kill all of a certain enemy type. Defend a point. Eliminate bosses. So far it has been a different mix each time. So you can't really predict exactly what they will want you to do until the round starts. But it all amounts to "kill something". Enemies don't show on the radar until you are down to just a few left so communication is kind of key in order to efficiently determine where they are spawning.

I think it will be a fun addition to the mix once they get more maps into rotation and possibly up the difficulty a bit. It is certainly a good way to farm req points (average 2000 per match) and knock out those AI kill commendations.

Looking forward to playing some matches with a TAG team tonight.

Will be interesting to see what kind of tweaks they make to it for full release, and, should be fun to try it out on maps other than just Escape from ARC. Hoping that they'll release a new Warzone map with the full version of Firefight. Wonder when the release date will be.

I think it plays to gamers ego's a lot more than traditional Warzone. Its a lot easier to get kills in Firefight than in regular Warzone.

Well what did everyone think?

I really liked it -- first time in Halo that I had more kills than deaths! :p

I liked it but hopefully they make a few changes like MisterxboxNJ said. More maps, 12 man team, quicker req scale, throw in a few random spawn weapons maybe

Already missing all those extra req points!  Was fun playing a game in which you only died 3-4 times versus the double digit deaths I normally have in regular Warzone. Looking forward to it coming back. Just took the latest Microsoft Halo 5 feedback survey which focused primarily on Firefight. Gave em my two cents on various aspects of it.
