Halo Infinite Season 2 Blog Reveals Weapon Balancing, Melee Fixes, Maps & Game Modes

After a long period of silence, 343 Industries has revealed many Halo Infinite Multiplayer’s Season 2 details through its blog!

It’s safe to say that Halo Infinite Season 1 has been just a little lackluster, but 343 has more to reveal about the game’s launch.

Recently, fans have been doing little but complaining about Halo Infinite. At the time of writing, the Fracture: Tenrai event is back for the fifth time, and we’re still waiting on the roadmap that was originally slated for January.

In addition, it seems that fans are calling Halo Infinite desync ‘worse than ever’, meaning that the game is difficult to enjoy at times.

And while the Halo Infinite player count begins to hit a new low, we’ve still got another month to wait for Season 2.

Thankfully, at least we know what’s coming in Halo Infinite Season 2, with new maps, game modes, and more!

Halo Infinite Season 2 Upcoming Changes

Today, 343 Industries released a lengthy blog post explaining several weapons balancing changes, melee fixes, maps, and game modes coming to Halo Infinite Multiplayer Season 2 on May 3.

But while we’re still waiting on a new Halo development or two, leaks are coming in hot. The Halo Infinite Infection mode is leaking early, and we can’t wait to play it.

What’s more, it’s looking as though 10 maps are in development for Halo Infinite right now, if these rumors prove correct.

But with the absolutely insane-looking Halo Infinite Forge leaks, we might not need to wait for 343 to make the maps for too much longer.
