When a new game is released often there are bugs that cause players problems, and can be quite annoying. In a refreshing change from some of the overreaction on social media over such problems, players on Halo 5: Guardians have worked on a list of bugs found in the game.
The Reddit post can be found here and it does make a point that it is not a place to throw accusations at the developers and publishers about what they failed to deliver. What it lists instead are bugs that have been found, and a few major gripes.
Looking down the list it includes some things that will hopefully be fixed in future updates, some of the most noticeable are:
- In Warzone and Arena, often times you can’t see the icon that shows someone is using their mic. This is really annoying when someone has a kinect mic set up or is making a bunch of noise just to be rude. You have to mute every person individually until you find out who is making the noise, or just mute everyone.
- You can get kicked from games for betraying teammates, after the game has already ended.
- Rockets sometimes do 0 damage to enemies in their blast radius when they hit stairs. Likely a physics/geometry issue, stairs are tricky.
- Fireteams can’t talk to each other unless searching for a game, in a pregame lobby, or in a game. This is not good for community building and making friends, as it encourages players with mics to just use the party chat system to avoid the hassle of using a broken game chat.
These are just a selection of some of the interesting issues, if you are thinking of posting some you’ve found yourself be sure to check the list to see if it’s already been posted. If user feedback could always be this well organised, it may become more constructive to getting the problems fixed quicker.
