[Updated] Halo Infinite Scorpion Tank gun glitched in LASO & HSC coating not showing for some, potential workarounds inside

New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on December 20, 2021) follows:

Developed by 343 Industries and published by Xbox Game Studios, Halo Infinite has managed to stay in the spotlight ever since its launch on December 8. The first-person shooter was scheduled to come out in 2020 but was delayed due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

That being said, players recently expressed their anger with the matchmaking server selection due to high ping and other issues as well as several bugs that ruin the overall gameplay experience.


Scorpion Tank handling and gun issues

Now, Halo Infinite players are complaining that the Scorpion Tank handling is really bad with many unable to drive it as they used to in previous Halo titles.


The Scorpion tank handling is garbage
And no I’m not just bad at driving. It constantly gets stuck on small rocks or brush, and occasionally it goes backwards when you’re trying to turn. Please fix this devs!! It used to be so smooth in the older games.

I have but one critique which is the scorpion. While it may be powerful it steers like crap. It use to be so much more streamlined in past games. It could also hold more soldiers than just a gunner.

Thankfully, a Reddit user has come to the rescue and shared a workaround for the Halo Infinite Scorpion Tank handling. It looks like toggling on the ‘Left Stick Control’ option in the vehicle control options fixes it to some extent.


Apart from the Scorpion Tank handling issue, players say that the Scorpion Tank Gun can be picked in-game and used as a regular mission. Many say that they completed the game using the tank gun at the highest difficulty (LASO) in a matter of hours.

Thank goodness it hasn’t been patched out. I just completed LASO and had it with me. While it made some things easier, particularly in the open world; it just made some of the main missions way more annoying. Hunters being shot into the air to rain fire upon me, always having to jump to fire and hit anything which got me shot to pieces a lot of the time. And it wasn’t actually all that great against the actual bosses. But I’m proud of completing my first LASO and I’m happy I had a fun gun to kind of help me out with it. Was fun, frustrating but fun. I hope the scorpion gun doesn’t get patched.

A Community Director at 343 Industries has commented on the matter and confirmed the fact that it is not an easter egg but a glitch.

Who are the real heroes who’ve beaten the #HaloInfinite campaign LASO without the wieldable tank turret weapon glitch? 🤔 (I haven’t yet)

However, they did not say if it will be fixed or left that way. Halo Infinite players are suggesting that the developers leave the glitch alone but instead disable achievements for those who use it.

If you want to use the Scorpion Tank gun, watch the video below to know where to pick it up from.

HSC coating not showing

Last but not the least, some Halo Infinite players say that the HSC weapon coating is not showing up after they claimed it from Twitch.


Does anyone know when the coatings will be distributed? I claimed them yesterday and it has not shown up. Am I missing a step?

It isnt showing up in game and I dont know what to do. Its showing up on my twitch and I claimed it it is not showing up in game. Help?

While 343 Industries is yet to acknowledge the issue, a user on the Halo Waypoint forum has found a workaround that seems to be working for some.


As always, we will be keeping an eye out on these issues and update this space as and when required so make sure you stay tuned.

Update 1 (December 23)

05:10 pm (IST): An individual claims this is the workaround they got via support to solve the Twitch Drop issue:

We have a few steps that you can try to make the items appear. Please do the following on your web browser:

Confirm that the reward is listed in your Twitch Drops inventory:
Confirm that the reward is listed as Claimed and that hovering your mouse over the check shows “Game account connected”
Go to your Waypoint redemption history and verify the items are listed:
Items should be listed as “HCS Launch Armor Coatings” and/or “HCS Launch Weapon Coatings”
If not listed on the Waypoint history, your account was not connected correctly. You can try reconnecting via Halo Waypoint account settings:
