Balance Changes Several adjustments have been made to weapons and gameplay mechanics for improved balance.


  • Improved stability for Halo Infinite on both Xbox consoles and PC.


  • Restored functionality to the Limit Inactive Frame Rate option for newer NVIDIA graphics drivers.
  • Swapping between the Lore and Attachments tab of a helmet in the Armor Hall no longer results in a framerate dip on PC.


  • Improved stability when navigating through the Armor Hall menus on Xbox consoles.



  • Dropping a weapon is no longer faster than swapping between weapons.
  • Vehicles no longer play their “doom state” sound effects prior to reaching the actual doom state.
  • Scorpions will no longer be dropped off by Pelicans on the map Deadlock.
    • Developer Notes: “Players gave us feedback that the Pelican vehicle drops on Deadlock did not feel good when dropping off Scorpions and Wraiths. We liked the focus on tanks, but agreed that the power of the Scorpion was too much and noticed it could dominate matches. To help address this, we’ve updated to vehicle drops on Deadlock to only bring in Wraiths, while the rest of the vehicle pads still spawn in their normal vehicles.”
  • The Skewer has received improvements to improve its feel on higher latency.


  • Using the Clear Filters shortcut listed along the bottom of a menu will now consistently result in the onscreen filters being cleared.

Custom Games

  • When setting up a Custom Game with the Firefight: King of the Hill game mode, adjusting the Auto-Revive Timer option in the Firefight tab of the Mode Editor menu now functions as expected when selecting a value below 10 seconds.
  • The Ranked: CTF 3 Captures game mode no longer requires teams to capture the flag 5 times to win when played in a local offline match.


  • The standalone version of the OpTic Gaming visor is now the same shade of green as the visor seen in the OpTic Gaming Armor Kit.
  • 54 Multi-Use Armor Coatings have been updated to work with all available Armor Cores and Armor Kits. Open the accordion below to view the full list of updated Armor Coatings and the Armor Cores and Kits they are now compatible with.
