The UNSC Infinity is the largest and most powerful vessel designed by the UNSC, so it’s only fitting that Infinity’s Armory, the first Halo 5: Guardians update of 2016, contains REQs worthy of its name. With Infinity’s Armory, step into new battlegrounds for both Arena and Warzone Assault, equip weapons that are both intimately familiar as well as completely alien, and outfit your Spartans with all-new armor sets and weapon skins from some of the more…interesting parts of the Halo Universe.
Follow @Halo for all updates on Infinity’s Armory and Halo 5: Guardians.
NEW ARENA MAP
The Created have wasted no time in extending their influence across inhabited worlds, burrowing into Forerunner machinery and UNSC information systems to turn terraforming equipment and world engines to their own grand designs. Unbound by the limited foresight of mortals, the agents of Cortana can reshape worlds into verdant gardens teeming with life after only a few decades of manipulation, but at much short-term cost. Scarred by wars both ancient and new, the Created have judged this planet to be in need of significant remediation and remodeling; shifting continents and oceans after the AI constructs carefully balanced the drawbacks and benefits of both limited extinction events and damage to the existing colonial infrastructure.
Players will need to quickly learn the winding routes of steel and sand to excel in the weathered structures of Riptide. By controlling the top catwalks, Spartans can analyze, pinpoint, and track down the enemy’s location.
NEW WARZONE ASSAULT MAP
In the aftermath of the Human-Covenant War, the underlying fractures in humanity that had precipitated the Insurrection once more became apparent. A dynamic combination of social engagement, reconstruction, and security operations was embarked on by the UNSC to disrupt nascent rebel movements, contain extremist politicians, and deny the Insurrection freedom of maneuver. The most difficult of these missions took place in the sprawling and densely populated urban metroplexes of worlds such as Andesia.
Urban is one of Warzone Assault’s open maps with many sightlines. The Armory is a hard base to fight over due it being on top of the grassy hill. Get some good sharpshooters on the overpasses to get some height to help control the fight.
