Recently, a fan-made comparison video of fruit destruction physics comparison between Call of Duty and Halo Infinite went viral and invited a lot of uncalled scrutiny on the matter. In a statement issued to IGN, 343 Industries broke silence on the matter and responded in a hilarious fashion. Check out the full video below for more details.
The Halo Infinite engineering team responded on the matter by saying, “We can improve the fruit physics, but that means we’ll have to cut the Needler.” Of course, this is a sarcastic answer to a sarcastic question. Fruit physics aren’t the focal point of the experience, and hence it makes all the sense in the world to put attention first and foremost to things that matter most – gunplay, balance, and the like.
Halo Infinite‘s journey through development has been a long one, but not without any hilarity. Halo Infinite‘s last year’s showings featured the infamous Craig the Brute, who went on to become a posterchild for the game’s development status and a centerpoint attraction for fans to create memes on. 343 Industries responded with levity in a similar fashion, starting a merchandise lineup featuring the fan-favorite Jiralhanae.
