Michael, Rob. We are playing Halo Five. And there is a new mode. Today, or yesterday, [INAUDIBLE]. Halo's Armageddon. And we're gonna be playing it and checking it out. We've played a couple so far. It's fun. It's enjoyable. Mm-hm. It could be tough. Yeah, it can be tough. It's essentially waves of enemies with objectives and methods of destroying them scattered throughout a play. Yeah, so far it's been, they've change it up every time, right? You don't know what type of waves you're gonna get. But it could be anything from kill grunts. Kill x amount of grunts. Just men, many bosses. Yeah. Many bosses. Towards the end, it, it, we, you know? You have like a. Or last time, we had a, a warden we had to take down. Yeah. But they changed it up enough for you don't know what you're gonna get into. More or less Yeah there's variety for sure Yeah Alright well this has been kind of the same. Yeah, it starts off you are just storming the beach kinda like a styling cartographer. Yeah, I love that mission. [SOUND] Yeah, like right now [SOUND] it's ideal to get through these quick. You want to get your wrecks up ASAP. Yeah, you wanna be aggressive for sure. But it's cool I like seeing one of my immediate likes is seeing all these, you get to see people's armor. Yeah it's not just red versus blue. Right, right. I mean you really only see what you look like in the menu, but now Now you get to show off what you're rocking. Who off what your rack momma gave you. That's exactly right, exactly right. [NOISE] Two Rex available. [SOUND] [INAUDIBLE] it out. [SOUND] So yeah, as you see our counter at the bottom right, we need 75 total grunt kills. Yeah, eventually they'll They'll start popping up with indicators, but I haven't seen any yet. I don't know when that happens, but it's within like five or ten or something. Okay. Ten I think. Got it. [BLANK_AUDIO] Only a couple targets left. Yeah, there you go. You nailed it.

So far this has been like the same fire [UNKNOWN] So right now we're just eliminating these mini bosses, because it doesn't say to [UNKNOWN] or anything. Yeah. Yeah. Man, this gets tough, they snipe bad. If you don't get back under cover fast, you're done. Yeah. There are eight of us just to reiterate. There are a bunch of us [INAUDIBLE].

I haven't touched the boss. How many fricking tanks do we have? Three, four? I have no ammo left, so I might die. [INAUDIBLE] [SOUND] I want the last kill. Aww. Sweet, cool.
