Halo Infinite isn’t even out yet, but that doesn’t stop players from pushing their systems to the limit in the tech multiplayer previews lately.
The latest tech previews took place over the last two weekends and in those previews the classic Halo mode, Big Team Battle, was available. The games took place on a map called Fragmentation in Big Team Battle – it’s essentially Halo Infinite’s version of Valhalla from Halo 3 – and the sheer size of the map allowed players to test what was possible and possible in Halo Infinite what not.
The clip above shows what is perhaps the most impressive Halo Infinite clip we’ve found. In it, streamer Mint lightning notes that if you hold onto a vehicle, your Spartan will basically follow that vehicle wherever it goes … including essentially across the entire fragmentation map.
Speaking of gripping with vehicles, Kind of funny ‘S. Andy Cortez discovered that by clinging to it, you can hijack a banshee way above the map. Just have a grappling hook ready, aim at the vehicle (that’s probably easier said than done) and shoot. Then sit back and watch your Spartan fly through the air stealing a banshee.
Redditor SumptuarySun1016 discovered perhaps the most tactical approach to Halo Infinite we’ve seen: standing on a wasp. The Wasp is a relatively new vehicle that first appears in Halo 5 and is basically an UNSC version of the Banshee in the form of a large drone. While it’s great on its own, getting a loyal Spartan teammate to the skies is even better as it gives them an extra high vantage point to take out enemies below.
Back to the fight on the ground, check out this clip from redditor yourwelcomeidiot. As you can see in the video below, they are discovering that Spartans can absolutely still have a Fusion Coil (already available on both ends of Fragmentation), and on top of that, they can put a Fusion Coil right into a drop wall gear down it at once.
To wrap up our very cool clips tour on Fragmentation in Halo Infinite, Redditor Oddballforlife (matching username) discovered what one of our editors was thinking while playing multiplayer last weekend: Halo is back.
As you can see in the clip above, Oddballforlife learns that the Halo Infinite Gravity Hammer is as powerful as ever and capable of absolutely destroying a warthog with just a few hits. It doesn’t hurt that Halo Infinite’s vehicle ragdoll physics absolutely got this warthog flying.
Gamertag radios Danny Pen / A became a grappling hook master on Halo Infinites Behemoth map and his clip is an excellent tip for all gamers: use your grappling hook to recover from an otherwise fatal fall.
Our final clip in this Halo Infinite recap is less of something cool to do in Halo, and more of a PPE that is not allowed to do in Halo that comes on Gamertag Radio Peter Toledo: Landing on the pelicans that land on the maps will kill you instantly so don’t do that.
