— In-game description for Halo 3's social Rumble Pit playlist


Rumble Pit is a Halo 2 and Halo 3 playlist based around "free-for-all" action. It is one of the trickiest and most prestigious matchmaking playlists. Playing Slayer in many variants (though most often it's regular Slayer).

  • This playlist is unranked, meaning you are matched against people whose skill level varies and guests can play.

It allows up to 8 players in Halo 2, 8 players in Halo 3, and rotates through a selection of maps and gametypes, most notably the "slayer", (Including variants like swords, and shotguns) "fiesta" rules.

The Rumble Pit matchmaking playlist was ranked in Halo 2 on Xbox Live from its release (in 2004) until early 2007, and is now unranked in Halo 3. Halo 3's ranked version of Rumble Pit is called Lone Wolves.

Tips and TricksEdit

A Rumble Pit is evenly comparable to a Lone Wolves match, save that it is not ranked but social. A good stratagem to work with on any given Free-for-All match is to step back, watch, wait, and charge. To bluntly hurtle towards foes is a guaranteed lose. For example if it is a Guardian Slayer match, you can primarily see hordes of Spartans and Elites having at it in the main arena in the center. Grab a Battle rifle and a handful of grenades, hurl them in the arena and pick off your rivals.

Close-combat is always ill-advised in a Rumble Pit as it can help the leaders get easy points with better weaponry.
