Halo Infinite’s glitched and overpowered “tank gun” will be added back to the game’s campaign in a forthcoming update, developer 343 Industries announced Friday.
The tank gun is an extremely powerful weapon — essentially a portable version of a Scorpion tank’s cannon that has unlimited ammo — and it’s been popular with speedrunners and as a way to make the game a lot easier. But even though you need to know exactly where to look to find the gun (which is invisible, by the way), Halo senior community manager John Junyszek said in April that 343 would be removing the “tank gun glitch” alongside the game’s second season, which launched May 3rd. That decision wasn’t a very popular one with the community, and it seems there’s been enough blowback that 343 has decided to bring the tank gun back.
343 will also be adding back some skill jumps to the game’s multiplayer maps. The hard-to-pull-off jumps (like the “Pizza” jump) could give players an advantage in a heated battle, but it seems they may have done so in a way the developers didn’t intend.
“We originally identified these jumps as falling into a couple of categories: Places where the environment was poorly communicating the traversal options of the game world, places that created a combat imbalance, or a combination of both,” Junyszek said on Friday on the Halo Waypoint forums.
