Halo Infinite could have a grappling hook as well as sprinting, thrusters and other power-ups, according to a known Halo insider.

Addressing another leak, ResetEra user Klobrille noted that “Grappling hook is in as to my limited knowledge, but it’s more like an equipment pick-up similar to Halo 3. No idea how that is included in campaign.”

Halo Infinite Will Have Power-Ups, Including A Grappling Hook?

In another comment, Klobrille explained that the game will offer an Arena-style multiplayer akin to classic Halo titles.

“Halo Infinite Arena is all about going back to classic map control gameplay (power weapons and power-ups)."

"There are a lot of cool map power-ups to complement the sandbox. Grapple hook, thrust or classics like overshield. All this is very dynamic and might vary heavily based on playlist etc., of course. But more on all that at a later date.”

“I do think people will pretty fast realize that nothing is absolute in HI,” Klobrille continued. “The game will likely have the biggest player base a Halo game ever had, there is a lot of room for experiments and many playlist options.”

“They are building systems to dynamically change/balance stuff and allow a diverse set of different multiplayer and Arena experiences, even more so when looking at the ridiculous options Forge will bring.”

My anticipation is at a fever pitch for Halo Infinite. While there's a good chance tomorrow's presentation will only focus on the game's campaign (rumoured to offer open-world elements), the multiplayer in Halo 5: Guardians is still worth checking out if you haven't played before.

One thing is for sure - just like the original Xbox relied heavily on the original Halo to find success, Microsoft has a lot riding on Infinite.
