E3 2014 H5GMultiplayer Trailer

The beginning of a Breakout match from the Halo 5: Guardians Multiplayer Beta Trailer.

Breakout is a round-based multiplayer gametype in Halo 5: Guardians. Players are split into two teams of four and fight on special maps in rounds and with only one life each. The mode places a heavy emphasis on teamwork, as maps are small and only lightly dotted with grenades and weaponry.


Players start out with an Shotgun primary, a Magnum [Extended Mag] secondary, and one frag grenade. Players have 100% shields. Each round begins with players launching onto the map from a stage via mancannon. There are no respawns during a round. A team wins a round by eliminating all four players of the opposing team or by delivering the neutral flag to their own base. The first team to win five rounds wins the match.
