CLASSIC SACK SCREENSHOT OF THE DAY


CLASSIC SACK SCREENSHOT OF THE DAY: Ender Xer0


Wait, didn’t we just run a week of special screenshots like, a couple days ago? Yes, yes, yes…but the new Playlist Update is so epic that we just couldn’t resist. And did you really expect us to pass up a special week named Classic Sack??

So, even if you think that name sounds vaguely pornographic — and especially if you do — head into one of the Classic remake maps or Action Sack gametypes and start snapping some pix!

Send screenshots to haloreachdaily@live.com, or just make a file recommendation to us on XBox (Gamertag: Ender Xer0, with a zero), and we’ll take care of the rest. Remember: we’re not looking for Forge art or random pix from the Internet; it should be a screenshot of YOU!
