Halo Infinite’s getting the old radar back, and fixing most of our concerns from the preview

As it was clear from Halo Infinite’s small multiplayer display at Gamescom last weekend, 343 decided to get down to business and finish the game. It’s good news, as it will be out in December without campaign co-op, so it’s going down to the wire. Today, 343 posted a lengthy blog post on multiplayer. It outlined how Halo Infinite would change based upon feedback from the July technical test.
There were eight thoughts that we had about Halo Infinite’s potential improvements. 343 was surprisingly able to address many of these. Future test flights and updates after launch will likely include improvements to outline readability, voice customization, motion tracker resets, expanded weapon drills, and motion tracker reverts. A few minor but welcome HUD changes will be made post-launch. The weapon information in the bottom left corner will now be larger. You’ll also see your secondary grenade type.

These are the highlights of the update. 343 also offers his take on the changes.
The motion sensor has been restored to its original form.

The good news is for the Halo 1-3 players, but it’s not for Morgan. Infinite’s technical preview showed that the motion sensor could only show players firing or sprinting; anyone walking was just as good as a ghost. Morgan said that the motion sensor was not detectable if you were actively hiding. Morgan also claimed it helped to keep matches exciting and stopped people from crouching on corners. It seems that the majority of people thought the new sensor was bad.

Here are the thoughts of 343:

“We found that many players didn’t know the old properties of these social matches. The Combat Sensor has been updated to look more like the “Motion Tracker, ” showing all movements except crouching. We should have it ready for people to test on the next flight.
To make shield status more clear, the new friend/foe outline system is tweaked.

This is a great relief. Although the new friend/foe outline system is much more accessible than the traditional red/blue team colour, it has some serious drawbacks in Infinite’s technical preview. It was difficult to see if a player had an active regular shield or an over shield. This information has always been easily readable from a glance in previous games. 343 received feedback and has already implemented fixes for the next flight.

Here are the thoughts of 343:

“We have already made significant FX adjustments to communicate the target’s health. It is important to know whether a target has an Overshield or full shields. These improvements will be visible on the next flight. We will need to examine how realistic it is considering our launch timelines. While we are always open to offering more options to our players, it is very unlikely that this will be possible until after launch.

“Common observation was that players would see their Gamertags above their heads when they looked at them. We agree and can confirm that names didn’t show up because of a bug. Several of you noticed an option to display a Gamertag and/or Service Tag in the game. However, it didn’t work in this build. It may make it to our next flight, but we will have it ready for launch.
After launch, you will be able to tweak Spartan barks and AI voice lines.

Halo Infinite has a lot more audio than previous multiplayer games. There are musical cues to signal the end of matches, Spartans commenting on the action, and an AI assistant that offers helpful advice and less helpful commentary. It’s possible to turn off the excessive chatter if you find it annoying. You’ll get there eventually.

Here are the thoughts of 343:

“Players expressed interest in having control over how often their Personal AI speaks and what information they talk about. We won’t be able to do this at launch. However, we would like to allow players more control over flavour lines and informational lines such as weapon pickup lines. This is a great way for players to make the game more accessible or turn off different feedback.

343 mentioned that the AI and Spartans would have more voices to reduce repetition. Before launch, the AI will also allow you to see your AI choices before you jump into a match.
Weapon drills will be expanded to include a sandbox for “testing everything”.

It was what you and I thought, and 343 others thought it. Halo Infinite weapon drills are great but too limited. I don’t need a long list of time trials separated by loading screens when I’m getting ready for a hot night of Halo shootin. I don’t want to be confined to a map that contains every weapon, grenade and vehicle, but can train at my own pace. 343 states that something similar is coming to Halo Infinite soon, along with other focused drills, such as alt-fire modes.

Here are the thoughts of 343:

“Weapon Drills were similar to Bots and were an addition to the multiplayer experience. It was great to see the community engage with the feature, learning about the toys and pushing their abilities.
