Halo Infinite: bot makes teabags on defeated enemies during the technical beta

Halo Infinite

The technical beta of Halo Infinite, the new first-person shooter from 343 Industries, is currently underway, expected later this year on PC and Xbox consoles. The beta is allowing players to get an idea of ​​the new features and style of Halo Infinite's multiplayer mode. At the same time, however, it allows you to discover some curious details, such as the fact that bots are able to make teabags on defeated enemies.

The teabag is a movement that consists in making your character above the body of the defeated enemy. It is a goliardic way to taunt the opponent, typical of online games and shooters in the first place. The fact that a bot performs this action within Halo Infinite, however, is somewhat funny. You can see the video below.

In the comments to the tweet, other users also confirm that they saw a similar scene during their game test with Halo Infinite. This is clearly a gimmick by 343 Industries, designed as a sort of easter egg. At the same time, we must also consider the possibility that it has a practical purpose: if the bot "wastes time" making teabags, it gives us a better chance of targeting and hitting it. Perhaps the developers have combined business with pleasure.

Tell us, are you trying Halo Infinite? Have you seen or immediately seen a teabag from a bot? Finally, we would like to point out that the technical beta needs a lot of optimizations on PC, for Tom Warren.

Developer Warns Against ‘Halo Infinite’ Campaign Spoilers

Don’t worry, I won’t post any Halo Infinite spoilers here. But there are some out there, because apparently some campaign-related files wound up in the current technical test, and dataminers were able to grab them—as a rule, dataminers grab everything. 343’s Halo Infinite head of creative issued the warning on Twitter, saying that these sorts of things are ‘painful’ for the dev team:

So if you’re sensitive to this sort of thing, you know what to do: block some terms on social media, stay away from the forums where this sort of thing is likely to be shared, so on and so forth. Mostly, it’s important to know that it’s out there if you want to go ahead and shield yourself from it.

It’s particularly important this time around because we know very little about the broader strokes of the campaign: we’ve seen Master Chief picked up by this bearded pilot dude, we know that The Banished are going to be the chief antagonists, and we know some other little details, but there are, obviously, some pretty major holes to be filled in. I’m going to go ahead and assume that the leaks answer at least some of these questions, but I haven’t looked at them and don’t plan on seeking them out.

Major story leaks are endemic to the industry, and this is far from the first one we’ve seen: a major The Last of Us Part 2 leak had the internet roiling for a few weeks last summer, for example. Games are big, unwieldy things made by huge numbers of people. Things happen.

Halo Infinite is still on track to release this holiday season after a major high-profile delay following a widely-memed reveal. The technical test is our first chance to actually get our hands on the thing, and so far reactions seem to be positive, overall.
