Scope glint nerfed in Halo Infinite August 25 update

343 Industries dropped a Halo Infinite update on August 25, and the headline change is that the scope glint on “precision weapons” such as the S7 Sniper, Shock Rifle, and Battle Rifle has been nerfed. Now, the shooter won’t be completely covered by the glint and they’ll be much easier to see.

The devs made a couple of other changes too, where players who own both Battle Passes won’t see the “Congratulations” message after every match, and the Ranked Arena playlist image should now load correctly when in the menus.
