Finally. Now I don't have to worry about these guys ever again!

Putting an invisible block on the Pelican is actually horse crap since you can still easily kill the guy on it. All you gotta do is lunge at him from below.
These all sound great! Thanks for the info. Something else you could look into, there's that one glitch on Power Installation 484 where Arclight shots into walls get stuck and kill anyone who tries to move past them. I understand this is mostly a height advantage fix, however I (and no doubt many others) feel it is necessary for this to be at the very least acknowledged and looked at, if it hasn't been already. Thanks again.
Good thing the playlist is fixed but whats really needed is a map refresh since most of the maps don't play well at all.
edit: power installation 484 still has arclight glitches, and explosives are broken on Round 2 of Black Friday (rockets, grenades and voids tear do no damage)
This is awesome these things have been addressed. Now I can go back to playing Infection some more with all of these fixes!
Ok all you guys need to do now is fix lag lunge...oh wait...that would take more than 5 seconds fixing maps in forge :( Maybe you should open a patreon so people can donate to make halo great again

I agree on the lag lunge and think infection should always have its own dedicated playlist like Halo 4, but you don't have to be that mean about it. Lol

Hey Eagle, if you didn't know there is now a Carbine on Hellfire! It's pretty insane!
How's about fixing the issue when people joining a game appearing as infected but being unable to kill or be killed by humans?

I will admit, that Arclight glitch is rather overwhelming for most players. Granted, it's more of an area denial tactic rather than something that is unfair.
Fun fact: there are only 2 fixes unrelated to unfair height advantages in this patch. I think the important takeaway here is that height is just way too overpowered and should be scrapped from infection maps completely. No vertical axis at all please.

Glad that the maps were fixed infection wasn't fun with them. Hope arclight on power installation is fixed soon too.
Great changes, there is a lot of player without sports spirit who uses these places to get unfair advantage and still boast about it ... In youtube and what else you find.

Agreed. The railgun spot was fun while it lasted, but now...

also have you ever had the problem of not being able to pick up shotguns in black friday? Happens to me every time...
