A fresh maintenance update is now headed out to Halo 5: Guardians, bringing along a ton of fixes across the board. While there's no new content involved in this update, the fixes involved touch on quite a bit from multiplayer, sandbox and Forge.

Halo 5 update brings loads of fixes to multiplayer, Forge and more

Two of the updates that will probably grab the most attention include sandbox tweaks to lower the aim assist on the Sniper Rifle when shooting from the hip, as well as the AOE radius of non-charged Plasma Caster shots. 343 Industries says that both changes were meant to encourage more skill and precision when using both weapons.
