The Season 2 update to Halo Infinite hasn’t quite lived up to players’ expectations, but members of the Halo team are reassuring players that fixes are on their way. Halo developer 343i Senior Community Manager John Junyszek and Head of Creative Joseph Staten took to Twitter to address players’ concerns on Friday.
“Hey Spartans, this week has been bumpy,” Staten said via a Tweet. “That definitely wasn’t our goal. We are indeed taking your feedback to heart, especially regarding map jumps and speedrunning. We’re reviewing options and will have more news to come.”
A thread by Junyszek dives further into some of these issues. According to Junyszek, the Last Spartan Standing challenges in the Interference Event were fixed and should now be “tracking more accurately and helping you earn rewards.” Halo Infinite will also compensate players who log in during the event with 5 XP Boosts and 5 Challenge Swaps.
The team has also responded to fans’ concerned Tweets, clarifying that a “jamming” issue regarding semi-automatic weapons is an unintentional glitch and will be patched in the near future.
“We’re taking the feedback seriously and reviewing options internally,” Junyszek said. He also encouraged players to report any further issues by reaching out to the Halo support account.
While buggy, Season 2 was an ambitious update that introduced new gameplay modes, maps, and limited events. It also unexpectedly revived Clippy, the beloved Microsoft assistant.
We gave Halo Infinite’s single-player campaign a 9 when it released thanks to its impressive level of player freedom and innovative reimagining of the classic series.
