343 takes Orion off of Halo 5

Orion, everyone's least favorite Halo 5 map, has been temporarily taken down.

343 Industries has announced through Halo Waypoint that Orion, a map in Halo 5: Guardians has been temporarily removed.

Orion, which has had several issues with exploits and spawn areas, will be down until it is fixed. 343 also stated that they are "working on multiplayer spawns (and any exploits that arise) on existing maps as well." 

This is welcomed news, as Orion has become the bane of many Halo players' existence. 

343 has also added existing maps to playlists that they were not previously included, so if you wanted to play Breakout on Altitude you are in luck.

Halo 5: Guardians, which has had a pretty successful launch compared to Halo: The Master Chief Collection, has been praised for it's multiplayer but criticized for its campaign.

Regardless of how you feel about Halo 5, Gameskinny recently reported that the game has had a very successful launch, financially.

Have you been playing Halo 5? If so let me know in the comments what you have thought of the game so far!

    Interesting move taking a game out of the game. 343i really look to be treating Halo with more care since the Master Chief Collection.
