Halo Infinite players call for changes to “horrible” melee hit registration

Halo Infinite players are calling for the developers to make some major changes to the game’s melee registration.

Halo Infinite players aren’t particularly fond of how the melee functions and many of them are calling for 343 Industries to make some major changes to the hit registration. 

The multiplayer beta for Halo Infinite has a plethora of content for fans to enjoy, but the game also has some major problems. These include glitches that de-rank players after wins and a cheater problem that might be worse than Warzone’s.

One feature that has received criticism from fans is the game’s melee system. It isn’t functioning properly, as several players have reported problems with the hit registration and are asking the devs to fix it.

While Halo Infinite players have a wide array of weapons at their disposal, sometimes it’s better to get up close and personal with your opponents. The melee mechanic lets you dish some serious damage and destroy enemy shields.

This is helpful when you’re running low on ammo or in a close-quarters combat situation. However, the Halo Infinite melee hits don’t always register properly, and Redditor WonAte highlighted this issue in the Halo Infinite subreddit.

The clip they posted showcases the player hitting an enemy with a melee attack, but the game doesn’t register the hit and the opponent is able to take them down. Many of the commenters agreed that the melee system isn’t working properly.

“Absolutely love most of the gameplay… apart from the melee,” wrote one user. “As soon as people are near each other there’s just horrible teleportating[sic]/phasing lunges happening.”

The inconsistent melee hit registration often causes players to phase through their opponents, and many have reported this happening when they tried lunging at the enemies at close range.

“Melee is far too inconsistent on lunges and I feel like I’m always on the receiving end of someone lunging as if they have an Energy Sword,” wrote NoTransportation888. “The no collision is what does me in the most.” 

Now, Halo Infinite fans are calling for 343 Industries to fix the game’s melee hit registration ahead of its official release. We’ll keep checking for updates regarding this and will be sure to let you know about any new developments.

When you first launch FIFA 22, the game’s cameras will be set to the EA Sports GameCam. While this gives you the same standard view as other players, you can try tipping the odds in your favor.

Here are the options that we recommend :

  1. Launch FIFA 22
  2. Visit the Options menu
  3. Select the “Camera” tab
  4. Switch both Single Player and Multiplayer Cameras to ‘Tele Broadcast’ 
  5. Set ‘Camera Height’ to anything between 10 to 17
  6. Set ‘Camera Zoom’ to zero

Switching both the Single Player Camera and Multiplayer Camera to the ‘Tele Broadcast’ option will provide you with a better look at the pitch, and the camera height lets you see the field better as well.

Once your overall display has been improved, you can alter the Camera Height and Camera Zoom settings. You can try adjusting these however you’d like until you’re satisfied with the camera settings.

Fortnite is about to receive its first major update of 2022 which is set to bring the high-anticipated return of Tilted Towers, as well as major bug fixes.

We’re now well into Fortnite Chapter 3, which brought Battlefield 2042-inspired tornadoes and even more major characters from the world of pop culture such as Spider-Man and Boba Fett.

But the crossovers aren’t everything you should be excited about, as the fan-favorite Tilted Towers POI is set to make a return in the 19.10 update.

Here’s everything included in Fortnite Chapter 3’s 19.10 update, including its major bug fixes and downtime.

Fortnite shifted to a brand-new map with Chapter 3 and eagle-eyed players spotted a familiar POI under the ice – Tilted Towers.

Tilted Towers was a fan-favorite location from Chapter 1, offering the perfect action-packed drop spot for high kill games. A version of it returned in Chapter 2 with Salty Towers but players expect Chapter 3’s to be the real deal.

Epic Games teased Tilted’s return by tweeting “one more sleep” along with a city skyline emoji on January 17, 2022. We’ll just need to wait and see what Epic has in store for Tilted’s return.

Halo Infinite leak reveals 5 new maps coming soon

A Halo Infinite leaker has discovered five upcoming maps in the game’s files, giving us our first look at possible additions to the game.

Published

A new leak for Halo Infinite claims that players will have plenty of new arenas to compete in, with five multiplayer maps allegedly on the way.

Halo Infinite’s multiplayer dropped to widespread acclaim back in November 2021, with 10 maps included for players to battle on.

While the majority of Infinite’s maps are fun, players have still been asking for more to be added. Specifically looking for classic multiplayer maps to make a return to the game, although 343 have already stated they won’t be adding exact replicas of previous arenas.

Unfortunately, a new leak from January 14 doesn’t include any fan favorites from yesteryear but does claim that five new maps are on the way in the not too distant future.

In a tweet on January 13, ‘leaks_infinite‘ shared in-progress pictures of five new maps, along with their names. According to the leaker, Cataract, Forbidden, Beltway, Solitude, and Bath Salts are headed to the game, although some think the latter is actually called Basalts.

The images show the maps in early development, which means they don’t look like anything you would expect to see in the game.

Using existing in-game assets to give a general idea of shape and layout, we can catch our first glimpse at upcoming Halo Infinite maps.

According to one Twitter user, these images show the maps in the “blockout phase,” which is when devs create a basic layout of the map using low-poly assets. The maps certainly look interesting, with one featuring train tracks, and another inside what looks like caves.

Of course, just because these images have been found, that doesn’t mean we’ll definitely see them in the game. Developers often add assets that never see the light of day, so just keep that in mind.
