There is a Big Team game mode that doesn't have custom load outs. Note the game mode under the map name and you will notice which mode it is. I think the two modes are actually called 'Big Team Slayer' and 'Big Team Infinity Slayer' if memory serves. I want to say it is 'Big Team Slayer' that has doesn't have custom load outs, but don't quote me on it. I primarily play Big Team as well. Love the larger maps, vehicles, and more targets of opportunity. :-)
It depends on the type of game you are in.
Certain types of game (usually with the Infinity or Pro prefix) mandate what loaouts you get to use.
To check your loadouts actually exist, go do a Spartan Ops, they should appear there.
I only play big team infinity slayer, which supports custom loadouts. Thanks though.
Just because its Big Team infinity slayer you're choosing from the palylists, doesn't mean its the version that lets you have custom loadouts.
As I suggested earlier, do your loadouts show up in Spartan Ops?
Slayer Pro gametypes also do not allow Custom Loadouts.
My loadouts do show up in spartan ops. I used to play big team infinity slayer with custom loadouts. I know that for a fact because that's the only mode I used to play lol. For some reason my loadouts show up in infinity slayer. Kinda lame but at least I know now, thanks for the help.
you must be playing in a playlist that didnt have load outs. pro slayer doesnt.
