Halo 5 is getting a lot of great post-launch servicing. 343 Industries has been very responsive with timely updates that have fixed performance and added in some value.




The newest patch coming soon, called Infinity's Armory, is all about new weapons and armor making an appearance. You'll find three new sets of armor with one of them based on one of the legendary pieces worn by the Master Chief in Halo: Combat Evolved, the Mark V Alpha. And for those that don't want a classic set, they're introducing an Achilles and Atlas sets of armor, designed to intimidate your enemies. Well, they both have a very cool and distinct visual style.


And why would they include some classic armor if they didn't also want to bring back one of the more iconic weapons in the series as well. So the battle rifle from Halo 2, though it's more of a modern interpretation of it. It does differ significantly from the current one, however.


And of course new updates to Halo 5 means more maps. And this time we're getting Riptide and Urban. Riptide is a map that's been designed for Arena Mode while Urban has been designed for Warzone Assault, an has a lot of great hiding places for snipers. It's a new location on Noctus.


Inside the new patch are also a lot of new weapon skins and emblems so you can make your Spartan unique.
