Halo Infinite Winter Update Brings Many Weapon Balance Changes

343 Industries has revealed more about the Halo Infinite Winter update set to release on November 8, this time introducing numerous weapon balancing fixes that will arrive in sandbox mode. A few weapons will receive buffs to encourage players to use them more, while overperforming weapons will see small nerfs – here’s what’s changing.

Community manager Unyshek explains in the blog post that 343 has started looking at weapon balance in the Halo Infinite sandbox now that players are a bit more familiar with the gameplay. Looking at both player feedback and hard data on how weapons are used in-game, six of Halo Infinite’s weapons are tweaked for better or worse.
