Spartan Ops is a classic cheat this week - it’s touted as a week of “Designers’s Choice” which is effectively a stalling tactic till the season finale is ready. It’s also kind of like how TV show’s often do a ‘best of the episodes’ episode in an effort to make a cheap show and / or pad the season out a bit further.
Halo Waypoint says “For the next 7 days, we're featuring a selection of "Designer’s Choice" Spartan Ops missions, selected by our very own David Ellis and Greg Murphy. Whether you're playing these missions for the first or hundredth time, we hope you enjoy this week's featured Spartan Ops content!”
I say, bring on the conclusion to Exodus!
