Flights[edit]

Main article: MCC Insider Program

Flighting for Season 6 was originally set to begin on or after February 18, 2021.[3] The release was ultimately delayed, and Flighting began on the 26th.[6] The Flight was designed to test Season 6 content in new features, though not all of it was available at the start. At the Flight's start, available content included;

  • Several new Halo 3 armor permutations.
    • Halo: Fireteam Raven armors.
    • RHINE-class Mjolnir from Halo Online.
    • Backpack accessories for Halo 3.
  • Two new multiplayer maps for Halo 3, originally from Halo Online.
  • Several new animated nameplates.
  • Several new Halo 3 skins.
  • In-game team switching

In an update later in the flight on March 11[7], the new season points store will be added alongside a number of bugfixes for the existing content. Due to player feedback, the map Edge has been delayed and will be released in a future season.[8] Originally, this update for the flight was planned to add a custom games browser initally only supporting Halo: Reach, though this was halted due to time constraints.[9] This update also changed the Sword and Board back accessory to be color-coded to the player primary color, replaced the crack in the skull on the shield with lacerations, and removed one sword and raised the model to prevent it from clipping with chestpieces.

Menu artwork trailer[edit]

Main article: Fireteam Raven, Reporting In

On March 31, 2021, a short trailer was released in the style of the ONI Archive videos premiered for prior seasons. The video depicts the Season 6 menu background - an M808 Scorpion - with some new dialogue depicting Fireteam Raven's Landing on Installation 04 between the Halo: Fireteam Raven levels Escape and Rubble.

Patch notes[edit]

April 7 patch notes (Version 1.2241.0.0)[edit]

The Season 6 patch launched alongside the start of the season on April 7, 2021.[10]

Install Size by Version[edit]

  • Steam
    • Max size of 23.99 GB
  • Microsoft Store and Xbox Game Pass for PC
    • Max size of 50.58 GB
  • Xbox
    • Max size of 55.16 GB

Cut Season content[edit]

Season 6 was originally slated to release with two former-Halo Online maps. While Waterfall made it into the final release, the map Edge was cut from Season 6 during the season flighting, as 343 Industries felt the map needed "fundamental improvements" before release.[8] The Custom Game Browser and the View Model Offset were also originally intended to debut in Season 6, though were eventually cut. The Sword and Board backpack piece for Halo 3 originally appeared in the flight with two crossed machetes and a blue shield, though in the updated flight build this was updated to just one machete and a shield inheriting the player colour.
