Halo Infinite has officially launched but even though it has been 6 years since the release of Halo 5: Guardians, Infinite is STILL making the same mistakes. It is mind-boggling how I even have to talk about and discuss this stuff.

I saw a post on reddit that did a great job of explaining why there aren’t more modes in Halo Infinite and why you can’t choose what modes you play. If you have an Oddball challenge, then you have to queue and wait until you get an Oddball match to try and complete. It could be argued that the lack of modes/playlists is by design to FURTHER lengthen the time it takes to complete challenges.

Halo 5 launched with so little content because (in my opinion) it encouraged people to play Warzone, the game mode designed around loot boxes and overpowered weapons.

So again, the fucking monetization is responsible for yet ANOTHER Halo games abysmal variety of content at release

    This is part 1 of 2 videos on Halo Infinite’s multiplayer and I had to make one on everything that’s NOT in Halo Infinite before I could make a video on it’s awesome gameplay and mechanics.

      Am I The only one that can tell the Gunplay Feels Completely different? Why does it feel like I have to use a Full Mag with The AR, BR, and Pistol to get a Kill? Were they trying to make this multiplayer Realistic with the Power Armor or something?

    Thank you for bringing attention to these issues Act Man, especially while progression & customisation have been the big topics of discussion right now. It’s incredibly disappointing to see so many features outside of the online matchmaking and academy broken or simply lacking in content. I am glad Forge isn’t out yet because it would of been a trainwreck in the games current state. I hope somebody at 343 sees this because it is a great video.

    • Flare says:

      @Elijah Longe Kid how old are you? 343i made Halo 4, Halo 5 and Halo Wars 2 where all 3 of them were garbage. Halo Infinite is the same garbage.

    • xX Fallout says:

      @Flare 343 didn’t make halo wars 2. Lmao

    • Ma5b gaming says:

      @Flare You are not a productive member of this comment section. The other humans are allowed, unfortunately you are not. Your arguments sound like if they were inspired by a new born crying because it didn’t get milk. L E A V E

    well-said. modern game releases are a joke compared to only 4-5 years ago

  4. Yaakov Okorley says:

    I’m with act man, I want to know why games can’t be finished when released. And when did gaming companies start this trend of not finishing games

    • A K says:

      to see how much they can get away with, making the most and spending the least, like any other company that exists right now.

    • Frank Sherbert says:

      Gaming companies need to stop announcing their games years before they’re done, and instead wait until they’re a year or less from release.

    • Christopher Fischetti says:

      @Kellen Richey It’s because companies are lazy and want money… what else do you think? Corrupt companies are corrupt. Whether it 343 or Microsoft themselves.

    • Cody Lambrecht says:

      @Ф SLOWED Ф Yeah I think it all mostly started when games went to digital release instead of hard disk.

  5. Matt 5G says:

    I just can’t believe we went away from pre game lobbies and game modes that were just honestly FUN. I really miss playing juggernaut, infection and action sack in reach. That game really had the community build their multiplayer up.

  6. gren thepkmnace says:

    I love the game and I really want it to succeed, but it still has its problems. I really hope 343 listens and sees this video. Also I really want to thank you Act Man for covering this I just really hope 343 does the right thing.

    Another factor of “Modern Gaming” that has plaguing us as of late has been this idea of making the game less “competitive ” and less “toxic” by removing things that make you able to compare yourself with other people ie: Death counters, Scoreboards, Levels, KDRs , Ranks, and the like. The actions of game companies to make their games more appear casual or less toxic whichever it may be, are removing parts of games that I see as vital to keeping players going as the watch themselves improve over time. Luckily Halo Infinite has seemingly been one of the games least affect by this but its still concerning for its future. The lack of stats visible on launch plus this new trend in modern games makes me really worried.

      From my experience, its the opposite, atleast for games like CoD. SBMM is literally a ranking system without the ranks. It doesnt protect new people or bad players because as those people get better they get put against harder enemies, so they can’t tell if they are getting better/doesn’t get rewarded for getting better, instead they get punished.

      When SBMMWZ was up I was in top 2% lobbies ALL. THE. TIME. I only have a 2KD and don’t really bother with the meta etc, but because I can still get around 2KD I will be in those lobbies forever, even though the vast majority of the people in there are only using meta, know everything about the map, never miss a shot. Yes, I can do all of this if I sweat, but the thing is I just wanna have a chill game with the boys, not be sweating all the time.

      They remove things like scoreboards etc, but that doesn’t mean the games aren’t competitive. They are more competitive than ever, to a point that comp CSGO is more chill to me than an average game of WZ or Vanguard.

      Like, when I played Infinite, I genuinely thought I was against bots for the first 10 matches because the lobbies where actually varied. Mostly average, some bad, some good. It was fun unlike the constant sweatfest of other games. It felt like good old times in CoD golden age.

      @Christian Bethel You mean you’re trash at it?

    • Christian Bethel says:

      @Rawb Mar Nope. I mean it’s trash. It was the result of progressivism. It was implemented as a cash grab. It was designed to enable the online disinhibition effect.

    • Christian Bethel says:

      @doc hendrix See above.

    • Rawb Mar says:

      @Christian Bethel So your comment is all because people say mean things online? Good god.

    “None of these decisions make any sense.” That’s honestly the theme for the whole company at 343 for me. Like, don’t get me wrong. They clearly prioritized the core gameplay and campaign over everything else, and it payed off. Infinite feels like a true to successor to Halo 3 and Reach. But this company’s decisions are just so bizarre and baffling. And a lot of times they LITERALLY provide NO REASON for those decisions. They just make the decision just for the sake of it.

    For example, like when they decided to remove Jeff’s kill announcements from BTB. Sketch talked about it in a video and literally said something along the lines of “everyone has noticed Jeff’s announcements are missing in BTB….BTB is a little different in halo infinite”………

    WHY?!

    It doesn’t make any sense to take out something like that, that is literally a core part of what makes Halo….Halo. And they have made so many decisions like that and have given similar responses (or no response) which you have clearly pointed out in this video. And I’m not trying to be super negative either! 343 has done a kickass job with infinite! They have really revitalized the franchise. I just don’t understand some of the decisions like removing Jeff, not being able to choose which game type I want to play, etc.

    And I don’t understand how Reach had way more stuff at launch and had half the development time. Infinite has had double the development time. Just doesn’t make any sense. 343 just needs to keep us in the loop a little bit more and explain the rationale behind their decisions.

      @peace& Love I miss the Plasma rifle…

    • TIMMEH! says:

      @peace& Love I agree like where are the rest of the classic Halo weapons like the plasma rifle, fuel rod, beam rifle, magnum, especially the pump action shotgun and the plasma carbine there not here in multiplayer and some of the brute weapons in Infinite are boring and they butchered the Plasma carbine design

    • Norse Lavenza says:

      343 and campaing don’t go in the same sentence. Halo 4 and the chosen thing? lmao, halo 5 and the evil Cortana? lmao, Sorry but 343 can’t make a good story if they could smoke pot

    • Rawb Mar says:

      Brother this is still a beta and not even the full release. I’m not sure what beta’s you’ve played where you literally get full complete access to the game?? Think about it would it not be smart to include all the playlists and such on full release to keep the game more exciting? If we had it all already people would get bored quicker which isn’t something anyone wants. TLDR Its just the beta and the playlists are coming.

  9. Jimmy Doll says:

    I’m ashamed that he said “If you carry the halo brand, and this is a mainline title, you have the halo expectation” instead of “you carry the mantle of responsibility”
    You have failed the halo expectation.

  10. Vintage Gaming says:

    The fact that there isn’t a progression system separate from the battle pass is a big problem
