Halo Infinite Season 2 has arrived, bringing with it new maps and modes for players to enjoy. There's also a few notable fixes for issues players previously noticed.
According to the official patch notes for Halo Infinite Season 2, multiple issues have been fixed, such as the clamber animation and various reload animations, which notably ran at a lower framerate than the rest of the game. Other issues fixed include faster loading for models, fixed progression issues in the Campaign, and general stability improvements across all platforms.
There's also restored 120 FPS support on Xbox Series S. Halo Infinite initially supported 120 FPS on Xbox Series X and S, but this was removed from the final Xbox Series S version of the game. Additionally, for anyone who wants image quality at all costs, there's now a 30 FPS mode on Xbox Series X.
