343 industries It no longer works in seasons in Halo: The Master Chief Collectionbut the developer The game is still supported. The next big update is coming Monday, which will kick off the fan-favourite Halo mode called ‘FloodFight’. Halo 3: ODST. As you know, the deluge added to the Firefight.
Firefight is a co-op survival mode where waves of enemies attack. FloodFight, as 343 Industries calls this iteration, sends waves of Flood into combat – changing enemies in normal mode from covenant to fearsome Flood crawl. The mode was beta tested last year, but the new update adds “several networking improvements” and fixes a lot of bugs. 343 Industries said the improvements “benefit Firefight across the board.”
The flood themselves in Halo 3: ODST It’s a little different too. Here’s how 343 puts it:
First, players will notice that Flood is accompanied by thick fog which gives each Firefight mission a new and frightening atmosphere. Players will see this fog dynamically fading when a Flood spell erupts and fading again when the normal Covenant wave spawns (in variants that mix Flood and Covenant enemies).
Floods can now power vehicles for the first time since Halo 2 Players will encounter (and potentially take over) across multiple Firefight missions. Flood enemies now have some new animations that allow them to drive these vehicles, traverse the environment more effectively, and even use support weapons like turrets.
at ODSTThere are also three new forms of flood control – civilian infected, infected patient, and injured elite Major who sports red shields and energy shields.
The Flood could use all of their familiar strategies as well. Stalker Forms can climb on walls and deploy as Ranged Forms in unexpected locations, completely changing the way classic Firefight missions are played. The flood can also fall on the map through the centuries of dispersal.
Finally, unlike the Master Chief, the ODST can be infected and revived by the Flood. Beware, you may have to fight against your own resurrected allies – or even yourself!
343 Industries added “yes” to help players, such as weapon racks with assault rifles or combat rifles. Some maps contain flamethrowers, or allied non-playable characters – like marines and allied elites delivered by pods.
Elsewhere in Monday’s update, 343 Industries added UI tweaks, changed Forge and mod tools, and added campaign crossplay for Halo 3 And Halo 3: ODST. There is also campaign customization in Halo 4new multiplayer medals in Halo 3And changes to monthly challenges and new skulls to Halo 2And Halo 3And Halo 3: ODST. The full list is available On the Halo Waypoint blog.
The developer also discussed new updates scheduled for the rest of the year, such as mod support for all games in Master Chef Collection. It said it plans to deliver “multiple updates distributed throughout 2022.”
