Halo's popularity is largely due to its expansive weaponry. Nearly every weapon in Halo is deadly in the right hands. However, not all weapons are made equal. For example, the sniper rifle is one of the deadliest weapons in Halo. The same holds for Halo Infinite, where the S7 Sniper Rifle can take out dozens of enemies with a single shot, as recently proven.
How did Sakana take out 23 heads in one S7 Sniper Rifle shot?
The S7 Sniper Rifle is a great weapon that can take out enemies with one well-placed shot - as long as it's in capable hands. This is why it's such a popular weapon among high-skill players who can pull off stunts like no-scoping players mid-air, making it seem as easy as breathing. But, while the S7 Sniper Rifle is one of the game's most rewarding weapons, most people wouldn't think that it can take out an entire platoon with a single round.

In a custom game, Twitter user Sakanayalugang posted a video on Twitter of themselves along with 23 other players. The video starts by showing us how all 23 players are lined up with Sakana counting each one. Then, once Sakana is in front of the line, they go and fire a single sniper round that goes through every other player in the line, which results in the total and instant annihilation of the 23 players.
So, yeah, Sakana didn't exactly take out all 23 players without help, but it's still amazing that a single bullet from the S7 Sniper Rifle can do so much damage.
What's interesting here is how much fun players are already having in Halo Infinite. The custom games are the perfect opportunity for players to blow off steam and unleash their creativity. More importantly, these custom games exemplify just how much potential Halo Infinite's sandbox has. This also goes to show that Halo is for everybody. Even if you're not a long-time series fan, you can still enjoy playing Halo Infinite with your friends, either by competing against them or goofing off in custom games.
It's safe to say that we can only look forward to more of these lighthearted shenanigans in Halo Infinite once the full game comes out on December 8.
In other Halo Infinite news, 343 Industries just confirmed all the bonuses that Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers will get in Halo Infinite. In addition, a leaked screenshot spelled good news for fans worried about Halo Infinite's file size. Unfortunately, it's not all good news for 343 and Halo Infinite. While players are enjoying the multiplayer, there are serious complaints about how rampant cheating is in Halo Infinite.
