A swords gametype for Lone Wolf. Me thinks I will finally have a chance to get that Steppin' Razor Achievement, and all without ever having to beg to get it. Nice.

And reduced Oddball is always great. Reduce King of the Hill/Crazy King and this will be perfect.

agreed. 6 on a sword type in lone wolves will be a blast. as soon as my COD4 addiction fades i'll be back into halo, which should be in about, oh, 6 months. but at least i know there'll always be a ton of people playing halo so the online won't dry up.
