As Halo Infinite fans get to experience more of its future multiplayer mode, a new glitch emerged, allowing many to spam melee attacks in sequence and in extremely high speed.
The glitch was found during Halo Infinite‘s current Technical Preview, on which selected players can test out the game’s mechanics and gameplay, as well as give their feedback regarding many of its current and upcoming features.
