343 Industries is rolling out the latest patch for the Master Chief Collection focused on the compilation’s ongoing matchmaking issues.
Through a post on the Halo Waypoint, 343 details all the expected fixes, much of which are targeting the collection’s matchmaking instability, which has been plaguing the games since their collective launch in November. The issues were widespread enough that 343 will be giving away Halo 3: ODST to those that were given trouble.
Full patch notes read as follows:
Made a variety of updates to improve matchmaking performance and success rates
Improved matchmaking search times/time to match
Improved stability throughout the matchmaking process across all titles
Improved party stability
Made improvements to multiplayer shot registration

Improved shot registration consistency between host / client in peer-to-peer custom game matches
