Halo Infinite is looking to be a huge multiplayer title for Microsoft, not just for online clout but also the competitive scene, as the company already has plans for the latest HCS, which is why 343 Industries decided to show off the Halo Infinite Competitive Settings during one of their blog entries.
This is something a lot of Esports players have been waiting for since the competitive scene in Halo continues to have a strong presence, so knowing the Halo Infinite Competitive Settings in advance will definitely help out, especially when Esports tournaments start to become more regular after the pandemic.
343 Industries Reveals Halo Infinite Competitive Settings
For now, here is what is expected of the Halo Infinite Competitive Settings:
- BR75 starts
- Motion Tracker disabled
- Grenade Hitmarkers disabled
- Slayer, CTF, Strongholds, and Oddball
- Friendly Fire will be turned on.
- Weapons, equipment, and grenades on maps will be set on static spawners, meaning they will always appear in the same location on each map and mode combination and will respawn at the same intervals.
Interestingly enough, the Halo Infinite Competitive Settings will also ensure that players won’t respawn with Secondary Weapons when they die, as 343 Industries wants everyone to hunt down for weapons, adding a more survival element to the game.
We’re sure that hardcore Halo players will be more than fine with these Competitive Settings, as it will make future games more exciting once they officially start.
Check out the video below of the Halo Infinite team going through the Competitive Settings.
Halo Infinite will be coming to the Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC on December 8.
