What Is Fiesta?

Fiesta is a Slayer mode that throws players into a 4v4 team deathmatch, but each Spartan spawns with a different loadout.

So, you could spawn with the most brute weapon like a Gravity Hammer, or even the explosive Rocket Launcher. Others can find themselves with something less powerful like the Plasma pistol, so anything goes in Fiesta.

There are no power items available throughout the matches, while equipment pads and weapon racks have also been removed.

How To Start Fiesta

Fiesta can be found in the main menu, above the main multiplayer mode of Quick Play. It will be titled, 'Fracture: Tenrai - Fiesta'. Simply select the game mode and it will search for a match.

Playing Fiesta Will Help Battle Pass Progress

Playing Fiesta will help complete certain Fracture Tenrai weekly challenges and in turn, help you rank up the battle pass. Certain objectives are exclusive to Fiesta and will pop up differently for each player. When completed, they will provide XP.
