Halo 5: Guardians has something similar to aiming down sights called “smart-scope”. It may look like aiming down sights that you’re used to from Call of Duty or Battlefield, but players retain all their mobility even while using this new view. It doesn’t affect the damage output of the rounds, but it does make the spread of bullets smaller. Smart scope is available for all weapons in the game and players can be “de-scoped” – that is popped out of that viewpoint by getting hit. Other changes to Spartan movement include clambering up ledges, infinite sprint, ground-pounding, and sliding. 343 Industries says they wanted to emphasize the series’ core strength which was mobility.
The Halo 5 multiplayer beta will be available for players who have purchased Halo: The Master Chief Collection. The beta will begin on December 29th and run for three weeks.
