One week after the release of Infinite Halo, modders were already redoing it. They turned the Warthog into a Tank Hog and made the Pelican dropship flythen replaced the intro with a halo dance party (opens in new tab). And after that, modder Opulent Halo modified the camera to make it third-person.
I didn’t realize it when it came out a few months ago, because honestly I went through the Infinite campaign and haven’t touched it since. But if you prefer to throw Halo over your shoulder, like with this one third-person mod for Halo: Reachhere’s a good reason to go back to Infinite.
This mod is for the singleplayer campaign only, of course. If you use it, you don’t have to worry about bypassing the anti-cheat or getting your account banned or anything like that.
First you need to download the Infinite runtime tag viewer (opens in new tab) and extract the zip to a folder of your choice. then download the All 3rd person mod campaign weapons (opens in new tab) and place it in Tagviewer’s mods directory. Start the game, open the weapons station on a Forward Operating Base, then press Alt and run InfiniteRuntimeTagViewer.exe. Click Load and select the Mods dropdown at the top. Find the entry for All 3rd Person Campaign (click on reload mods if it’s not there), select Add to Pokes and then Poke All. here is one video tutorial (opens in new tab) if you need.
Assuming all goes well, you’ll be able to face Banished in third person. Unfortunately, there’s no way to switch to first person when you aim at crosshairs, and you’ll have to repeat the process every time you restart the game, but you can’t have everything.
Mods are one of the main reasons I prefer to play games on PC when I have a choice, and it’s great to see that the Halo series’ return to our platform of choice has been embraced by modders. Heck, here’s a mod to put the Gravity Weapon in Halo Infinite (opens in new tab). The only thing more PC games than that was when someone put Dust2 in Halo 3.
