In the December 2022 Update, Halo: The Master Chief Collection players can now rejoin a matchmaking session by going to the multiplayer menu and initiating a requeue. This is handy for those who got disconnected due to a bad internet connection.

Players also have the option of abandoning the queue to start a new search. To do that, they just need to press the Matchmake button in the “Rejoin Match” pop-up, which can only appear if the last match they’ve played is still in progress. Keep in mind that abandoning ongoing matches may result in temporary bans.

New Features for Halo 4

Skulls in Halo 4 provide players with different modifiers depending on the one they have enabled. That said, Acrophobia and Bandanna skulls have been added to the Halo 4 campaign of the MCC.

The Acrophobia Skull gives players the ability to fly through the air by double-pressing and holding down the jump button. This is perfect for getting them to locations they ordinarily couldn't access on foot.

On the other hand, those who don’t want to be bothered by limited resources should use the new Bandanna Skull. This thing gives players instant cooldowns for their equipped Armor Ability, as well as infinite ammo and grenades.

Steam Workshop Support

Halo: The Master Chief Collection is now fully integrated with the Steam Workshop. Players can browse the workshop for any mods that they like without the hassle of transferring appropriate files and folders manually.

Players should check out this awesome mod called COMBAT REVOLVED based on Halo: Combat Evolved. This mod features a complete gameplay and visual overhaul of CE, with a fresh campaign experience, UNSC weapon changes, and vastly improved enemy AI. Additionally, the mod makes Linda, another Spartan-II Soldier, playable!
