This weekend's test includes Big Team Battle, which is Halo's large-scale multiplayer mode where two teams of 12 do battle on giant battlefields. The BTB maps also feature Destiny-style loot caves full of powerful items to help players turn the tide of battle. Additionally, BTB matches include ordnance drops, with Pelicans flying over from time to time to deliver new equipment.
