The popular first-person shooter game Halo Infinite has added three good maps and the best Halo guns since reach in Season 3 of this game. Check out the major Season 3 new updates.
The first-person shooter game Halo Infinite was developed by 343 Industries and published by Xbox Game Studios in 2021, the game saw a massive popularity since its release. Till now, there are players out there in the gaming community who finds this game the best game of all other first-person shooter game. Battlefield 2042 is really good now, but Halo Infinite multiplayer is starting to get better and better after the last week’s Season 3 update.
About Halo Infinite’s Season 3 Update
Season 3 of Halo Infinite adds some attractive content to the game, Season 3 added two new Arena maps, which are named Chasm and Cliffhanger respectively, and one Big Team Battle Map named Oasis. Fans are looking for some good maps in the game since the day it launched and it is great to say that all the new maps are winners so far. Especially fans are enjoying playing Chasm, which might take the award for Halo-est Halo map 343 has put out yet.
Chasm is actually two hallways situated in an unspecified alien facility which is divided by a bottomless pit, and it is connected only by a couple of light bridges along with floating hexagonal platforms which are arranged in such a way that it looks like a 3D platformer.
The rival hallways symmetrical staredown is ideal for mid-range fights with Battle Rifle bros or pistol pros. As most of the space between you is death pit, so you tend to stay on your respective side and side-strafe until the fight comes to an end, which is a nice changeup of the usual “run at each other while shooting and then punch each other in the face” Halo tactic. The place is more spacious than it sounds, but not that much that whoever grabs the top floor with a sniper rifle automatically dominates the round in the map.
Halo’s partially cold, geometric alien architecture reminds fans of Halo’s earliest polygonal days, but according to some fans, the map is blocky and more simplistic than any other modern first-person shooter game.
Halo Infinite Season 3 Updates, at a glance:
- There will be three maps in this season (Chasm, Cliffhanger, Oasis)
- One new weapon will be added in this season (M392 Bandit)
- New mode: Escalation Slayer (it’s Gun Game) will be available in the Season 3 of Halo Infinite
- New equipment: Shroud Screen used to shoot a dome of no-see-me will be available in the Season.
- 100-tier battle pass
- Ray tracing
Adding this Chasm also feels great as it comes with Halo Infinite’s first new gun, fans one of the favourite old Halo gun named the DMR. The infinite version is called the M392 Bandit, a semi-auto kinetic assault rifle used to destroy your opponents. Although it fires a bit slower than its iconic Halo Reach Predecessor version along with a more aggressive recoil than a battle field, but the time between shots locks makes it easier to land continous hits.
Across arena maps fans will find the Bandit in weapon lockers, but fans will be much more excited to see it in Big Team Battle. Developer 343 Industries added a “BTB Unlimited” playlist this week that exchanges the default pistol loadout to a Bandit/Assault Rifle combo, which looks more gorgeous.
Following this another exciting update in season 3 is Halo Infinite’s team-based twist on Gun Game. Previously there were hot swapping between single guns, but now teams cycle between 11 pairs of weapons with a loose theme. Gun Game in this game suits perfectly well as there is distinct weapons like Halo, and it also makes a team sport to a smart move too. Often this mode come to a weird end when one player who dominates the round with throwing snowballs to the end of the gun ladder. More than this there is also a free-for-all variant of Escalation out there for Gun Game purists.
The quality and quantity of content in Season 3 is better as players would love to experience the new interesting updates. For fans out there, finally it feels that there’s something good to do in Halo Infinite, as developers have added up some good amount of things to explore in the game. The mile-long playlist selection helps many players and it is great to hear that a player can now chase a tense ranked match with an equally tense Mongoose race on a faithful recreation of Mario Kart’s DK Mountain.
One part of Halo Infinite that still hasn’t improved and is stuck in 2021 is its new 100-tier battle pass. Fans may be nine tiers ahead into the thing and get bored to tears. Nowadays it is an easier task to earn XP, which sounds great, but fans are once again stuffed with individual armor pieces along with a few not-so-good gun skins. And if you’re a premium one, then the free track is a lonely road that is paved with terrible non-rewards like challenges tokens, which you should attempt.
Since no design change is out for 343 Industries, so you can work with yourself. To begin with, take armor out of the battle pass and make it its own thing. Dressing up your spartan in a personalized manner with a personalized armor like a Barbie may sound fun, but unlocking it in a proper way is a much more difficult task to give a perfect look and to work to achieve it.
Don’t waste your time unlocking some random shoulder guard, rather than completing unique challenges which will give you a cool samurai helmet. It is more or less like a system that is followed in Call of Duty for unlocking gun camos, which have inspired millions of people to grind in the game and to manage a separate battle pass. You can still sell those overpriced overhyped skins until 343’s monetization department knocks down.
Anyways, the update of Season 3 of Halo Infinite is quite good than the others and fans will definitely enjoy experiencing the new stuffs which are added to season 3.
Halo Infinite is available to play on Xbox Series X and Series S, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows, Xbox Cloud Gaming. So go and check it out.
