Halo Infinite Melee Bug Can't Be Fixed Because There Aren't Any Devs
Halo Infinite has fallen off a little bit, but that's not something that has deterred the most dedicated among the shooter's fanbase. So, it's unfortunate that an apparent Halo Infinite melee bug can't be fixed because even the devs have abandoned the game.
A couple of seasons in, Halo Infinite is going strong enough to justify its existence, with players still loving the title that proved itself to be a return to form for the sci-fi shooter franchise that had seen some serious drop-off over the two games that came before it.
Even though it's still populated enough to make matches work, that doesn't mean it isn't squeaky clean, and it's got a fair few problems in the form of glitches and bugs. Case in point, the new melee bug, but… there's nobody around to fix it.
What Is The Halo Infinite Melee Bug?
There's a Halo Infinite melee bug making the rounds that is in dire need of a fix, but it won't be any time soon, because… the devs aren't around to fix it.
The glitch sees players seemingly implode and die when they try to finish off a player with a melee attack. It's so prevalent in gameplay, one user has been able to compile a whole video of it killing the original poster, and according to their caption, has "made me rethink playing this game."
The problem with the Halo Infinite melee bug is clearly widespread, as many players in the comments have recounted their experiences with it - and one 343 Industries team member has responded with a response which has baffled fans.
Will Halo Infinite Fix The Melee Bug?
In the comments of the video, 343 Industries' Senior Sandbox Designer Brian Berryhill has suggested that we might be waiting a while for a fix. "The TLDR of it is the devs that would work on these fixes have been allocated to other Infinite work."
He continued, "Their work has had some knock on benefit to our UCN solution, especially around movers on object devices, but not around the melee and 'around the wall' shots. These devs are coming home to Sandbox soon."
It's a bizarre response to a report of widespread bugs, and fans are feeling as though they're being told to just deal with it. It's pretty lame from 343 Industries, so we're just going to have to hope that the other work that the devs are on is worth the sacrifice.
