Changes in Season 2 patch anger Halo Infinite speedrunners: A new Battle Pass, more maps and modes, and many changes in the patch notes are all part of Halo Infinite‘s second season. Unfortunately, speedrunners don’t like a few of the changes. Most of them are good, but a few aren’t so great.
This is what MorrisonGamer, a Reddit user, wrote in a thread called “So…did I just see 343 kill the speedrunning sub-community in a single patch?” You can see a few of them in the patch notes. They’re changes that mess with the speedrunning meta.

All of these glitches have been fixed. We knew the Scorpion tank gun glitch was going to be fixed. Banished invincibility, Fusion Coil grapples, and First Strike exploits were also fixed. This means that any saved file that already has the tank gun will be able to keep it. Everything else has been cut.
Sim0x24 talks about how the campaign no longer had Pelicans that could be flown in another thread. This was also fixed. Even though 343 Industries is allowed to change the game as it sees fit, Halo speedrunners aren’t happy about removing glitches like these.
This is shown in the comments of both threads. Speedrunning strategies constantly change, but having to come up with entirely new ways to do things after a patch is understandably upsetting.
Fans of Halo were let down by other posts from 343, like this one. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like there are any plans for Cortana or Elites to be in multiplayer right now. But, at least there is the new Last Spartan Standing mode.
