You'll need to hop into the expanded universe to get a little more clarification. Here's a few recommendations for reading, along with a bit of synopsis to get you started (some spoilers ahead but these books have been out a while):
  • Halo: Bad Blood. It's the sequel to a story about Buck and Alpha-9 (from ODST) called New Blood. I also recommend reading that because it's awesome. This book takes place after H5. And I mean immediately after. Like it goes back to when Blue Team and Osiris are still on Genesis and explains how they got back to Halsey on Sanghelios before jumping into the rest of the story.
  • Halo: Legacy of Onyx. This book is kinda marketed as a young adult novel, but honestly it's entertaining and fun to read regardless of age imo. It takes place around the same time as H5. The setting is a research facility on a Forerunner installation that is essentially the size of two Earth orbits... so unimaginably big. Anyway, the story hints heavily at something big going on in the galaxy, and ends with the protagonists fighting a Guardian.
  • Halo: Envoy. I'm going to assume this book isn't totally necessary to connecting H5 to Infinite, but it's a great book and it takes place around the time of H5. It follows Spartan Gray Team, a trio of non-conformist Spartan-IIs. They help out a human/alien colony world trying to rebuild in the aftermath of the Covenant War. The ending sorta hints at the events of H5.
  • Halo: Shadows of Reach. I'm not gonna spoil this one here since it just came out. I'll just say it takes place after H5 and is clearly intended to set up some major extended lore details that will likely be dealt with in Infinite. Like Infinite will probably be pretty straight forward as 343 have said, but us lore addicts might get some nice nods or Easter eggs from this book.
Hope this helps. I realize I just gave you a bunch of reading assignments, but the good news is you got almost a year to read them before Infinite comes out!

Gray Team is back? Thanks for the info!
Did Thel Vadam kill Jun?
Did Thel Vadam kill Jun?
Jun is still alive. He's the only member of Noble Team to have survived the Fall of Reach. He went on to become a recruiter for the Spartan IV Program and, as far as I know, is still in the UNSC.

Here's his Halopedia page. What made you think Thel killed Jun?

I remember reading somewhere that Thel had killed the spartan that was escorting Halsey off of Reach but I must have missed a piece of it or something. Anyways thanks for letting me know.
  1. What happened to the plasma based rhinos from halo wars?
  2. How did the forerunners make the ancient humans "devolve"?
  3. why have the falcons not been seen since reach?
Hi, I was wondering if in the canon Beam Rifles have an equal fire rate to Binary Rifles or if they would be considered slower? Also I was wondering if the Binary Rifle and Beam Rifles would be classified as having a speed calculated at being the Speed of Light? If somebody from 343 could answer this or point me to an official source stating the answer then i would be much appreciated.
