Halo Infinite’s Combat Shotgun Is Now Better In Ranked Games Than Social Games, And Players Aren’t Fans

A ranked-only melee buff for the Battle Rifle in Halo Infinite Season 2 hasn’t gone down well with fans, who find the idea of ​​different damage values ​​for weapons depending on the playlist confusing.

Halo Infinite’s new multiplayer season has just launched and, along with new maps and modes, has also introduced several balance changes to mix up 343’s shooter meta. These changes include nerfs to the Mangler , big Ravager buffs, universal melee damage reduction, and the aforementioned ranked-only Battle Rifle melee buff.


This move seems to be aimed at the game’s more competitive community, which would be upset if the battle rifle received any significant changes, but in the process upset the game’s more casual audience. Many fans wonder why 343 hasn’t just added the combat rifle melee damage bonus in social playlists.

Like Season 1, Halo Infinite Season 2: Lone Wolves will last six months, three months longer than originally planned. Along with new modes and maps, Season 2 introduces a new battle pass and events, like the current Interference event. Long-awaited and long-delayed features like campaign co-op and Forge will arrive later in Season 2, according to a recently released content roadmap, with a Forge beta slated to begin in September. The online co-op campaign is set to arrive in August.
