Got invited to the second Flight, Technical Test. Here's some info:

- install size on Series X is 22.9 GB
- The full game is supposed to have multiple modes, but only Quality is available in the test. No other option was available.
- PR mentioned that it supports 4K 60FPS
- No in game HDR option. Using the Auto HDR option on the Series X
- There is a training mode, where you can experiment with the different guns and practice against bots.
- There is a Bot Arena to play against bots if you want to
- The main multiplayer mode is a 4 v 4 Arena Slayer mode.
- 3 maps available, Live Fire, Recharge, and Bazaar, but I only kept getting the Bazaar
- Each match is 12 mins long, and first team to reach 50 kills wins.

Usually I have a ton to say, but I honestly haven't played Halo since 3, so It's been a while. I'll play a couple more hours and update the thread. Don't laugh at my gameplay haha. It's trash let's move on.

Is the map just too big, made for more player? Kind of feels "slow paced", had to crank up to 1.7x speed, to get the action going. The player playing the game was more running around and not doing the game any favor ...

Halo 1 MP on PC felt way faster.

edit: just noticed they added "speed lines" from a cartoon to emulate speed? Compared to Valorant, Apex etc. this is definitely one or two steps slower.

I watched Drdisrespect, timthetatman, zlaner and drlupo play it together in 4v4 a moment ago (maybe still live) . They seemed to really like it, and the game looked pretty damn good and solid.

Big team battle mode is next weekend.

Yeah i'm watching them and they really like the game. Doc isnt keen on the low power of the base weapons, and thinks granades should be more obvious to see where they are, but apart from that he's loving it.

I really liked the first flight so I was looking forward to this.
I absolutely love it. I haven't played Halo in a long time, I'm more of a COD/Doom player but I cannot really wait for it.
Maps, weapons and perks like the slingshot work really great. I feel like people who doubt 343 are in for a surprise. Battlefield needs to be awesome to match this one.

Shouldn't Halo just be a single big release instead of all these test phases? Kinda ruins the hype Id say.

Maybe merge with:


What's with this forum and making multiple threads about the same thing? It's so annoying.

Is this Halo set in the COD universe? I swear I've seen that map in one of the modern warfare games.

Anyone playing seeing the xp challenges not working? I’ve had “Play PVP 2 Xs” and just finished “win 3 PVP matches” but the first one still at 0/2?

other than that liking it so far

The battle pass/challenges stuff is borked right now. I leveled from 1 to 2 three times today and 2 to 3 twice.

Now I’m almost out of challenges and still lvl 3.

My progression counter reset to 0 after a match, not expecting much from that side

Why do I feel like I have been hearing about this game on every website for so long? Is it just people's mad desire to have a 16th Halo title release? Glad they are finally onto testing it and getting it out.

You're going to be hearing a lot more about it in the coming months.

Tell me you guys are seeing this insane ass texture quality. It's really surprising me. I really am thinking this could be Sampler Feedback Streaming in action for the first time. If it somehow, well shit I don't know lol. Why does it look so damn good in multiplayer?

Looks like destiny without the powers. Not really a guy that enjoys MP but I do like the flourishes and stuff they added since the Craig demo, that stuff was sorely needed. Looking forward to some single player gameplay before the delay is announced.

Gameplay looks fun, and the sound seems real nice

The poses before the match are stupid though. I get that it's just expected in F2P, but it's always looked moronic, or at best ironic.

Here's hoping there's a "do absolutely nothing" pose and victory dance.
