Halo Infinite players aren’t particularly fond of how the melee functions and many of them are calling for 343 Industries to make some major changes to the hit registration. 

The multiplayer beta for Halo Infinite has a plethora of content for fans to enjoy, but the game also has some major problems. These include glitches that de-rank players after wins and a cheater problem that might be worse than Warzone’s.

One feature that has received criticism from fans is the game’s melee system. It isn’t functioning properly, as several players have reported problems with the hit registration and are asking the devs to fix it.

While Halo Infinite players have a wide array of weapons at their disposal, sometimes it’s better to get up close and personal with your opponents. The melee mechanic lets you dish some serious damage and destroy enemy shields.

This is helpful when you’re running low on ammo or in a close-quarters combat situation. However, the Halo Infinite melee hits don’t always register properly, and Redditor WonAte highlighted this issue in the Halo Infinite subreddit.

The clip they posted showcases the player hitting an enemy with a melee attack, but the game doesn’t register the hit and the opponent is able to take them down. Many of the commenters agreed that the melee system isn’t working properly.

“Absolutely love most of the gameplay… apart from the melee,” wrote one user. “As soon as people are near each other there’s just horrible teleportating[sic]/phasing lunges happening.”

The inconsistent melee hit registration often causes players to phase through their opponents, and many have reported this happening when they tried lunging at the enemies at close range.

“Melee is far too inconsistent on lunges and I feel like I’m always on the receiving end of someone lunging as if they have an Energy Sword,” wrote NoTransportation888. “The no collision is what does me in the most.” 

Now, Halo Infinite fans are calling for 343 Industries to fix the game’s melee hit registration ahead of its official release. We’ll keep checking for updates regarding this and will be sure to let you know about any new developments.
