Halo Infinite seems like a solid evolution of the Halo formula between its modern improvements in quality of life and adherence to tradition. A part of that tradition includes the antics that players can do in the game, and Halo Infinite has definitely not removed them.
Last week, Halo Infinites' second flight test concluded after players tested multiplayer games on two weekends. The first weekend was devoted to Arena Slayer, quick four-on-four matches on a handful of small maps, while the second weekend was entirely about Big Team Battle, massive 12-on-12 encounters, with vehicles and explosions on. abundance. Generally speaking, the second flight test showed Halo Infinite in a very solid place, fans who fell in love with the games updated the movement and weapon game, their new weapons, and the litany of other new tools at the disposal of the game. players like Grappleshot, allowing the Spartans to rotate around the combat arena.
Although there are still a few things that Halo Infinite should change for its release, the game appears to be a promising return to form for the long-running franchise. Reddit user infenty recently posted a clip showing his entire Big Team Battle team hiding from the enemy in Halo Infinite. In Fragmentation, the Big Team Battle map available in flight, players can hack into Forerunner loot caves to gain battle perks like power weapons and special gear like the aforementioned Grappleshot and Repulsor. Hacking the caves requires a Spartan to stand near him while his personal AI does the heavy lifting, and when the doors are opened they reveal quite spacious caves, some with multiple rooms and high ceilings. Halo Infinites multiplayer has the tools to innovate a classic Halo strategy: thwart the enemy by hiding.
The clip shows an entire team of 12 Spartans hiding in the rafters of one of the Fragmentation loot caves. Infenty and the rest of his team watch as two lone enemy Spartans enter the cave, hoping to find the enemy, but end up spinning helplessly in circles when they can't find anyone. To access that upper area of the loot cave, Infenty explains in the comments that it was a combination of Grappleshot and Repulsor, as the first team has limited grab range, and the second can quickly provide a boost if used correctly. . Fans in the comments, perhaps both seriously and jokingly, claim that this is the Halo multiplayer they remember.
There's something about the litter box that Infinite provides that, as fans have come to realize, really builds on Halo lore. Sure, players can probably hide from the enemy team in any multiplayer FPS, but there's nothing quite like doing it in Halo. With all the new weapons and gear in Halo Infinite, the game practically encourages players to experiment and see what kinds of tricks they can pull off. However, if this kind of thing is happening on flights, one can only imagine what awaits us when the game is fully released.
