Halo Infinite is on track to be one of the best multiplayer shooters this year, despite heavy competition from Call of Duty Vanguard and Battlefield 2042.

Halo Infinite technical test is now available to insiders who signed up before September 13, 2021. The game can be played on both Xbox and PC platforms and we dived into 343 Industries' highly-anticipated shooter on PC to see what the fuss is about.

After a couple of matches with OSDT bots on all three available maps, we can safely say that Halo Infinite is a prime candidate for the best multiplayer shooter this year. To say it simply, 343 Industries have absolutely nailed the multiplayer experience of Halo Infinite in every single way. 

Everything about it feels super optimised and polished - The visuals, the tactical combat, the gunplay and the amazing sound design make Halo Infinite multiplayer one complete package that will be a big competitor to other heavy hitters like Battlefield 2042 and Call of Duty Vanguard that are releasing later this year.

Of all the available maps, we had the most fun playing on Live Fire, which is the first test map but others like Bazaar and Recharge are fantastic too. This is another aspect of the game where 343 Industries have managed to deliver.

As for the weapons, the Needler is our favourite at the moment while the classic Assault Rifle does the job too. Also, if you are playing Halo infinite Technical test, go do yourself a favour and pick up Gravity Hammer. Combined with the grappling hook, you'll make some impressive kills as you slam down on those bots. Poor bots. 

All in all, Halo Infinite seems to be in really good shape and we hope that this will be the case when the game officially launches in December 2021. After a long wait and rumoured development issues, the devs deserve a lot of praise for what they've achieved here. Let's get this one to the finish line, 343.
