A fan-favorite weapon could be making its way into the Halo Infinite sandbox in the future, if a recent leak is to be believed.
Via the reliable Halo Leaks Twitter account, a new precision weapon called the M392 Bandit might be coming to Halo Infinite in the near future. While the “Bandit” part of the weapon’s name is new, the M392 part matches up with DMR’s official name in 2010’s Halo: Reach, where it was officially called the M392 DMR (Designated Marksman Rifle). The DMR went on to appear in both Halo 4 and Halo 5, but was absent–along with numerous other fan-favorite weapons–from Halo Infinite at launch.
If the DMR (or the “Bandit” as it’s now apparently called) does come to Halo Infinite, it will join other human precision weapons like the Battle Rifle, Commando Rifle, and Sidekick pistol. Adding to the speculation is the discovery of a Halo 5 DMR in the background of a map used for the game’s recent Season 2 cinematic. As for when the new weapon may arrive, that’s anybody’s guess. The game’s current multiplayer season is set to last until November.
