Watch the Halo 5 beta's rarest achievement, the Killpocalypse

New, 11 comments

While Xbox One players were busy duking it out in the Halo 5: Guardians multiplayer beta in December and January, developer 343 Industries was taking notes.

This week on Xbox Wire, executive producer Josh Holmes condensed some statistics into an infographic showing that the beta hosted 20 million matches and players pulled their triggers to fire more than 6.4 billion shots. Perhaps the most significant achievement was that exactly one player, Omnipression, earned the coveted Killpocalypse medal.

Better yet, Omnipression recorded the moment of glory. Press play above to watch the Spartan rack up kill after kill after kill. It's enough to make Halo 5's announcer go wild.

343's research amounts to more than a clever infographic. Those behind Halo 5 will use it to change and improve the game, according to the beta's executive producer.

"Throughout the beta we monitored feedback channels including web forums, reddit, Twitter, Facebook and our newly launched Halo Community Feedback Program," Holmes wrote. "From these sources we tracked literally thousands of pieces of detailed feedback. The team has spent the past few weeks poring over player feedback from the aforementioned sources and from this we have developed an extensive list of improvements for the game, including adjustments to Spartan Abilities, Weapons, Competitive Skill Ranking and much more."
