Halo 4 will receive two free new armour mods as part of next Monday's matchmaking update: Recharge and Survivor.
As detailed on Halo Waypoint, the new upgrades will be made immediately available for players to plug into their loadouts - no unlocks necessary. They seem to be specifically designed to keep you in the fight for longer, perhaps in reaction to the major weapon balance overhaul that reduced kill time for almost every gun in the arsenal.
- Recharge: decreases the time it takes for your shields to recharge.
- Survivor: ejects you out of a vehicle if it’s about to explode.
The matchmaking update will also bring Haven Oddball, Skyline Rumble BRs, Simplex Rumble BRs, Abandon King of the Hill, Landfall King of the Hill back into Rumble Pit rotation, along with a rejigged Spartan Ops lineup.
Still no word on Spartan Ops: Season 2, though. Hurry up.
