Players Are Doing Some Pretty Wild Things In Halo Infinite
Halo Infinite isn’t even out yet, but that’s not stopping players from stretching its systems to their limits in the multiplayer technical previews as of late.
A new batch of technical previews was held over the weekend. In those previews the original Halo mode Big Team Battle was made available for play. Matches took place on a map called Fragmentation in Big Team Battle – it’s basically Halo Infinite’s version of Valhalla from Halo 3 – and the sheer size of the map allowed players to test what is and isn’t possible in Halo Infinite.
The clip above showcases perhaps the most impressive Halo Infinite clip we’ve found. It shows streamer Mint Blitz discovers that if you grapple to a vehicle, your Spartan will basically follow that vehicle wherever it goes…including across basically the entirety of the Fragmentation map.
Speaking of vehicles being juggled, Kinda Funny’You can find it here Andy CortezYou can grab a Banshee by grappling to its side. Just grab a grappling hook and aim at the vehicle. (This is easier than it sounds) Then fire off. You can then relax and enjoy the freedom of your Spartan as he flies through the air in search for a Banshee.
Redditor SumptuarySun1016 discovered what might be the most tactical approach to Halo Infinite we’ve seen thus far: standing atop a Wasp. The Wasp is a relatively new vehicle, first appearing in Halo 5, and it’s basically a UNSC-version of the Banshee shaped like a large drone. While it’s great on its own to use, taking a trusty Spartan teammate up to the skies above is even greater as it gives them an extra-high vantage point to take out enemies down below.
To get back to the fight on the ground, watch this video by redditor yourwelcomeidiot. The video above shows that Spartans are able to yet fusion coils (available at both ends Fragmentation), and that you can also insert a Fusion coil into drop-wall equipment to bring it down quickly.
After wrapping up our cool-clips tour in Fragmentation In Halo Infinite on reddit, Oddballforlife (the fitting username) revealed what an editor felt about Halo when they played multiplayer last weekend.
As you can see in the clip above, Oddballforlife learns that the Halo Infinite Gravity Hammer is as powerful as it’s always been, capable of absolutely destroying a Warthog with just a couple of hits. It doesn’t hurt that Halo Infinite’s vehicular ragdoll physics absolutely sent that Warthog flying.
Gamertag Radio’s Danny Peña became a grappling hook master on Halo Infinite’s Behemoth map and his clip serves as an excellent tip for any and all players: use your grappling hook to recover from an otherwise deadly fall.
Our final clip in this Halo Infinite round-up is less something-cool-to-do-in-Halo and more of a something-not-to-do-in-Halo PSA that comes by way of Gamertag Radio’s Peter Toledo: landing on the Pelicans that drop into maps will kill you immediately so uhhh don’t do that.
