 * Adds bonus points to the winning leader's score in the Guardian game mode if the leader successfully survives the winning round.

Good, sometimes you hide as a leader and get like 2 kills which means very little points and exp.

"All Hollows' Eve" Double XP Event - 10/30 to 11/2

To celebrate Halloween and the release of Title Update 5, we figured it was time for another double XP event weekend.

Of course that means starting on the morning of Oct 30th you will recieve double XP in competitive multiplayer and Horde as well as a team winning bonus.

Beyond that though we wanted to mess with the waves in Horde to try and make it appropriately "scary" for Halloween. So while Butchers seemed on target for the theme, they didn't provide enough umph to make it scary. So we thought, what if any of the many Boomers could attack on any wave and when possible, a full Boomer squad consisting of Grinders, Butchers, Flame Boomers and regular Boomshot Boomers could appear and attack all at once. And of course waves 10, 20, 30, 40 and 50 would be nothing but wave after wave of Boomers. Sounds scary and fun to me!

For those of you scoring from home, you may notice that I didn't mention the Maulers (aka the Boomers with exploding flail and shield). That's because for this event we're pulling them out. We figured what is the fun of having a massive Boomer onslaught when you can just plant a shield to block them off. So unless the shield is part of the map, you're on your own!
