Bots of Halo: Infinite won’t be toxic promises 343 industries

According to a report by Shacknews, Halo is going to take a different route with the bot’s behavior in the latest iteration. Toxic bot behavior used to be one of the most iconic things that Halo offered. There was simply no replacement for a bot quick scoping your head and then tea-bagging the corpse. Now, it seems like this behavior of bots is going to become the thing of the past. However, a curious clip of bots acting rowdy and also toxic, immediately after securing a frag.

On the flip side, developers of the title confirmed that it was not intentional behavior. The studio does not wish to discourage newer players from picking up the game, and hence the team has planned to keep the environment healthy for every skill level. He also stated the bot was trying to do something else and a certain glitch made it look like the infamous toxic teabagging.

” The bots are meant to be welcoming and fun for players of all skill levels, and a feature designed to taunt a player would oppose that goal. If that happened to be observed shortly after a kill, or near a player’s body, it can definitely feel like an intentional behavior. In reality, the bot was just struggling to go up the stairs.”
