Halo 5 Stat-Tracking Now Available in Free App
The Halo Channel app now lets your track Halo 5 kills, achievements, and more.
Microsoft has released a new update for the free Halo Channel mobile app that introduces "complete stat tracking" for Halo 5: Guardians. The main menu screen shows your service record and customized Spartan character. Beyond that, the app also displays things like how many Commendations, Achievements, and medals you've earned. In addition, it includes your Spartan Company, if you belong to one.
Stats are tracked across Halo 5's campaign and multiplayer modes, including traditional Arena and the new 12v12 Warzone mode. The image above is for Warzone, but Microsoft says you can expect a "very similar" overall experience for Arena and Campaign. As you can see, it displays total kills (including kills by enemy type), as well as number of games played, win percentage, total play time, and more.
Complete "carnage reports" are also available for every match played, featuring kills, assists, and more. Click through the images in the gallery above to get a close look at the updated app.
The Halo Channel app is free and available now for iOS, Android, and Windows Phone. The update that introduces these new Halo 5 features is set to arrive today, October 26. Halo 5 launches October 27.
In addition, this new update now lets you watch video programs such as Halo: Nightfall and Halo: The Fall of Reach when it becomes available. Previously, you could only do this on the Halo Channel Xbox One app.
Finally, Microsoft also announced that Halo Waypoint's own stat-tracking services have now been expanded to include Halo 5. In addition to tracking things like how effective you are with the Magnum or your win percentage for Capture the Flag, Halo Waypoint will now let you view your Halo 5 Warzone REQ collection and even buy new REQ Packs with REQ Points or real money.
