Halo Infinite’s second season is properly underway, however the modifications in Lone Wolves weren’t all good. Speedrunners have been sad with the removing of sure glitches, and Battle Pass modifications made sure challenges more durable to finish for some gamers. As we simply discovered, a few of these points will likely be remedied with the game’s subsequent update.

There are not any correct patch notes for the upcoming update, however senior neighborhood supervisor John Junyszek gave us a rundown on the Halo Waypoint boards. One repair has been a very long time coming: “gun jamming,” which messes with the hearth charge of semi-automatic weapons, has been plaguing the neighborhood for some time. “We’ve been able to identify the root cause of the issue,” says Junyszek. Jamming ought to cease interfering with marketing campaign missions and multiplayer matches with the following update.

That’s not the one change coming to multiplayer both. Aquarius, Bazaar, Live Fire, and Streets as soon as had ability jumps — superior strategies that adept gamers might use to shortly ascend components of the map. Some of those have been controversially faraway from the 4 maps, however they’ll be restored within the update. While balancing these ability jumps is essential to 343, it additionally encourages the neighborhood to seek out much more of them as they play. Perhaps the brand new Season 2 maps have some undiscovered routes themselves.

Finally (and most significantly to many gamers), Junyszek’s publish guarantees the restoration of the Scorpion Gun glitch, a sound speedrunning technique that many lamented shedding in a earlier patch. It wasn’t the one speedrunning glitch eliminated, however lots of these “are far more complicated” to easily convey again. The staff will “continue to explore [its] options” regardless.

The future update will even embrace a smattering of stability and stability fixes. It doesn’t have a set launch date presently, however 343 will “share more on release timing in the next few days.”
