Halo Infinite Update Brings Back Tank Gun And Ability Jumps Next Week

An update is coming soon to fix some of the biggest issues fans are having with Halo Infinite Season 2. Senior Halo Community Manager John Junyszek confirmed on Twitter that developer 343 Industries is planning the update for next week.

Halo Infinite’s second multiplayer season introduced a new battle pass, two new maps, and new events. While fans have been clamoring for new content, the update also introduced a major weapon lockout bug and removed things like “skill jumps” from various multiplayer maps and the tank campaign easter egg, much to the dismay of fans. fans. The next update will address those concerns, with 343 admitting that the release of Season 2 has been “shaky.”

Skill jumps often involved jumping over parts of a map, like a light pole or a small ledge, in a very precise way to traverse maps faster and more unpredictably. The secret tank cannon from the campaign was widely used by many speed racers or fans just looking to have a good time blowing everything up with a hand held tank cannon.

Citing “overwhelmingly strong feedback,” 343 Industries will be bringing back some, but not all, of the removed skill jumps, and will be looking to try to more clearly communicate those jumps visually. The weapon lockup bug needs to be fixed so that weapons no longer randomly stop firing, and the tank cannon returns as well. However, other quick run strategies removed in the Season 2 update, such as the ability to fly a Pelican, will no longer apply. 343 cites the fact that many of the removed strategies are “much more complicated as they are closely related to the work we’ve been doing in preparation for co-op”, and as such will not return to the game.

Halo Infinite recently turned its new Battle Royale-like Last Spartan Standing mode into its own permanent playlist. A new free event, Fracture: Entrenched, will kick off on May 24 and will be similar to Season 1’s Fracture: Tenrai events. Halo Infinite’s long-delayed online co-op feature is scheduled to arrive in late August, with a version beta for its Forge custom map tool planned for September.
