Halo CE Magnum coming to Reach

Title update also brings multiplayer fixes.

Halo: Combat Evolved's beloved Magnum pistol is coming to Halo: Reach multiplayer as part of an upcoming title update for the game, Microsoft has announced.

The weapon will be supported in "special, classic playlists", according to the announcement.

The patch, due some time in October, also brings with it a number of multiplayer fixes. Armor Lock has been tweaked so that it now absorbs damage based on the amount of remaining energy a player has.

Active Camo's duration has also been reduced and the ability to block sword attacks using any weapon other than another sword has been turned off.

Reticle "bloom" is now configurable, meaning greater accuracy when firing rapidly, and players using a 4GB Xbox 360 console without a HDD can now access Campaign and Firefight matchmaking.
