A bug was discovered during Halo Infinite’s most recent technical preview that causes endless wet floor signs to spawn when a dynamo grenade hits one.
A recently discovered bug in Halo Infinite causes endless wet floor signs to spawn when a dynamo grenade is thrown at one. The next installment in the Halo series is set to launch on December 8 of this year, following a notoriously large delay in 2020. Currently, a Halo Infinite multiplayer technical preview is in progress running from the weekends of September 23 to 26 and September 30 to October 3, giving fans a chance to experience the systems that the developers have spent so long refining.
This is not the first tech preview developer 343 Industries has provided for its player base as it attempts to iron out some lingering bugs before the title’s official release in about two and a half months. An earlier preview caught a glitch that prompted Halo Infinite bots to inappropriately taunt defeated enemies in a similar manner to a popular celebration from real-life players. The current multiplayer demo has also revealed some other existing bugs, and one really emphasizes to certain players that the floor is indeed wet.
Kotaku reported on a glitch that spawns a ridiculous amount of wet floor signs after one is hit by a dynamo grenade. Some users who have discovered the glitch take advantage of it by continuously throwing as many dynamo grenades at the ever-growing pile as they possibly can, which can make it seem like an infinite amount are spawning. The glitch only lasts as long as the grenade’s effect, however, and as pointed out by YouTuber Hotel, the signs do de-spawn a few seconds after coming into being.
Grenades in particular seem to be the focus of some player concerns during this go-around of the multiplayer technical preview. One player noted that the kickback on Halo Infinite grenades felt off when compared to other installments throughout the franchise. This particular concern, however, could easily be remedied by adjusting grenade settings in the game’s menu.
As for the wet floor sign glitch, it does not seem to be something that breaks the game in any significant way, and it’s actually quite amusing to witness. This could be something that 343 Industries lets slide or at least keeps in the game through some capacity because of how whimsical it is. If it is later discovered that it does somehow negatively impacts the overall experience like the Halo Infinite infinite melee exploit, then it should of course be removed from the game. Until then, 343 might want to allow players to make it rain yellow wet floor signs.
Halo Infinite launches on PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S on December 8, 2021.
