The next Halo Infinite update will restore the tank gun

Halo Infinite’s maker, 343 Industries, said that the game’s “tank gun” would be added back to the campaign in an upcoming update.

The tank gun is a popular weapon among speedrunners because it is like a portable version of the cannon on a Scorpion tank and has an endless supply of bullets. On the other hand, Halo community manager John Junyszek said in April that the “tank gun glitch” would be fixed as part of the second season of Halo 2.

All of this happened even though it’s almost impossible to find the pistol without knowing a lot about the area where it’s hidden. This decision got a lot of negative feedback, and it looks like developer 343 Industries has decided to bring the tank gun back.

343 Industries will also add more skill jumps to the multiplayer maps. In tough battles, it’s possible that difficult jumps like the “Pizza jump” give players an edge. But it’s not clear if this was what the creators meant.

Junyszek said in the Halo Waypoint forums on Friday, “At first, we thought these jumps fell into a couple of categories: places where the environment didn’t make it clear how to move around in the game world, places where combat was unfair, or places where both were true.”

In the season 2 patch, 343 made changes that made some skill jumps smaller. Despite this, 343 plans to bring back many of the skill jumps that were taken away because people were so angry. Junyszek said that “players have made it clear that our analysis of these jumps was off,” and that “we respect the criticism.” Players told us that our analysis of these jumps was wrong, and they made it clear in their feedback.

Junyszek had said before that he thought 343 Industries was thinking about making changes based on what players said after the season’s first episode. “We’ve seen the complaints about changes that broke some multiplayer jumps and ways to speedrun the campaign,” . Junyszek said in a May 5 statement. “Right now, we can’t make any promises, but we want you to know that we’re listening to your comments and thinking about our options.

The creative director of Halo Infinite, Joseph Staten, was also aware of the criticism. “Hey, Spartans, this week has been rough,” Junyszek was quoted as saying by Staten on Twitter. Junyszek had already said the same thing. What actually happened on our mission was not at all what we had planned.

Recent problems with Halo Infinite are just the latest in a long line of problems.

Even though Junyszek didn’t say when the new version would come out, it seems to be coming soon. A member of his team said, “Our team has been working hard to get as much as we can into this update as soon as possible.” We still need to finish a few more steps before we can put it out in the world, though. In the next few days, we’ll know more about when this update will be out.

If the reversals are any indication, Halo Infinite has been in bad shape since it came out at the end of last year. Lastly, some of the game’s most important features haven’t been added yet. Developer 343 announced a month ago that it plans to add online campaign co-op in late August and an open beta of Forge mode in September, which is still a while away.
