A diligent Halo fan uncovered 14 previously unseen Halo Infinite modes, including Elimination and the SWAT-like Tactical Slayer, buried away on the PC version of the game.
While the free-to-play, beta edition of “Halo Infinite” allows players to choose from 17 distinct multiplayer modes, it turns out that if you play the game on PC offline – which would, in theory, make it impossible to play – you can access an additional 14 modes. They’ll also be available to play online with your buddies because you may save and file share them.
“Fun fact: If you launch Infinite offline, you can access the modes currently unavailable,” Redditor WickedSoldier991 explained on Reddit after they discovered the modes. “If you go online after, you can save them for yourself. Attrition, Tactical, and Fiesta’s other modes.
“If anyone’s having trouble getting the modes, add me and try to access my file share to get them. If that doesn’t work, [let me know] and I’ll try to host some customs with people and pass the mode around that way.”
Attrition, one of the modes, appears to be fresh new. It allows you to perform unique kills that replenish your respawns and let you recover dying teammates, according to our colleagues at PC Gamer. Unsurprisingly, it also has a Danger Zone, which is a Battle Royale-style ever-decreasing circle.
Here’s the full list:
- Arena: Attrition
- Arena: Attrition Dodgeball
- Arena: Elimination
- Fiesta: Attrition
- Fiesta: CTF
- Fiesta: One Flag CTF
- Fiesta: Strongholds
- Ranked: Elimination
- Ranked: One Flag
- Tactical: Slayer
- Tactical: Slayer Commandos
- Tactical: Slayer Manglers
- Tactical: Slayer Sidekicks
- Tactical: Slayer Stalker Rifles
ICYMI, “Halo Infinite‘s” most recent cross-promotion package — this time with the Los Angeles Lakers – is selling for 10 times its initial price on eBay.
The $140 bundle – which was available for a limited time yesterday, but only at the Team LA store at Staples Center ahead of the Lakers’ game against the Clippers – is the latest in a series of offers for Xbox’s tentpole shooter, Halo Infinite. A Lakers Master Chief 117 Swingman jersey, a Lakers special Xbox wireless controller, and a Master Chief figure are included in the package.
As is customary when companies limit the quantity or availability of highly desired items, dozens of the bundles have quickly appeared on auction sites, with prices ranging from $660 to – wait for it – $2,599, when it’s bundled with the similarly sought-after Halo-themed Xbox Series X and Elite controller.
ICYMI, “Halo Infinite” is already the most-played Xbox Game Studios title on Steam, despite the fact that it has yet to be released in its entirety and only a beta version of its multiplayer is available to play right now.
