The Halo 4 playlist Ninja Assassins hit back on 4.14.14 and finished pretty strong for the time it was given (through 4.27).
(Please note I’m defining “pretty strong” as consistently around 2,000 through the run.)
I thought it looked fun – whenever the words “ninja” and “assassin” get together I’m interested – but it turned out even better than I thought.
No radar, all-black suit and a sword/sniper combo to start? Boys and girls, this one’s a keeper.
Here’s a breakdown of what happened at each of the three Ninja levels you were at during the game, but for me it didn’t make any real difference – things were still crazy and I was either looking behind or having a wicked sword duel every other second.
The playlist rotation has since moved on (now on Multi-Team), but due to its popularity Ninja Assassins will return at some point.
I’ll always go Slayer or Big Team Battle first, but I’ve been surprised by how fun some of the new modes for Halo 4 have been.
Ricochet, Binary Slayer and now Ninja Assassins means there’s always something good to go to if I’m tired of being owned the old fashioned way 😀
