Halo Infinite’s The troubled and superior “tank gun” will be added to the game’s campaign again in an upcoming update, developer 343 Industries announced on Friday.
The tank weapon is an extremely powerful weapon – essentially a portable version of the cannon of a Scorpion tank that has unlimited ammunition – and is popular with speedrunners and as a way to make the game much easier. But even though you need to know exactly where to look to find the weapon (which by the way is invisible), Halo Senior community leader John Junyszek said in April that 343 would remove “tank gun damage” in parallel with the second season of the game, which started on May 3rd. This decision was not very popular in the community and there seems to have been enough reaction that 343 decided to bring back the tank gun.
343 will also add some skill jumps to the multiplayer maps. Difficult jumps (like the “Pizza” jump) could give players an edge in an intense battle, but it seems they may have done it in a way that the developers did not intend.
“We first identified these jumps as falling into several categories: Places where the environment did not communicate much about the game world’s crossing options, places that created a battle imbalance or a combination of both,” Junyszek told Halo on Friday. forum for points.
The 343 made some adjustments that removed some skill jumps with the season 2 patch, but the community outcry was strong enough that the 343 plans to add many more. “and we appreciate the comments,” said Junyszek.
Junyszek said last week that 343 Industries was considering the changes in response to player comments after the start of the season. “We’ve seen comments about the changes affecting various multiplayer jumps and speedrun campaign strategies.” said Junyszek on May 5. “We are not at the point where we can promise anything yet, but we want to be transparent and say that we take the comments seriously and consider the options internally.”
The head of the creative company Halo Infinite, Joseph Staten, had also acknowledged the allegations. “Hello Spartans, this week has been abnormal,” Staten said. excerpt-tweets Junyszek. “It certainly was not our goal.”
Junyszek on Friday did not give a specific date for the new update, but it sounds like it could arrive soon. “Our team has worked hard to get as much as we can into this update as quickly as we can, but there are still some steps we need to take to be able to release it to nature,” he said. “We will share more about the specific release time of this update in the coming days.”
Flips are just the latest gear Halo Infinite, which has had a difficult development since its release late last year. And we will wait for a while to add some key features to the game. 343 announced last month that it is targeting a release in late August for an online co-op campaign and a release in September for an open beta of Forge.
