What you need to know

  • A glitch in the Halo Infinite beta allows you to rapidly beat people up with multiple melee attacks at once.
  • The glitch is performed by melee attacking, then swapping your weapon and immediately melee attacking again at the same time. You can then chain the melee attacks with each swap.

Since the Halo Infinite beta is a work-in-progress version of the full game that's coming later this year, players were bound to discover new bugs and glitches when they got their hands on it this weekend. Most of these issues are boring technical bugs, such as problems with the game's performance or UI elements not working properly. However, some of the bugs are quite funny; for example, during the last beta test, melee attacks could send enemy players flying.

One of the funniest (and most game-breaking) bugs from this beta test is an exploit that allows players to melee attack extremely rapidly, essentially giving them rapid fists of fury that can annihilate any player in their way. With this glitch, you can beat down anyone — including someone who has an overshield — in a fraction of a second. Have a look at the exploit below:

If you're looking to use this glitch during the beta before it's patched, you can do so by melee attacking, then quickly swapping to your second weapon, then immediately melee attacking again. You can chain this insta-melee glitch as you continue to swap back and forth between your weapons, allowing you to rapidly beat the snot out of anything and anyone in front of you.

What do you think of this glitch? Are you excited to try it out? Let us know. For more on the Halo Infinite beta, stay up to date with our Halo Infinite beta schedule and check out our guide on how to download the Halo Infinite beta.
