Inferno Clash

Inferno mode is making a comeback to the Crucible this week! As a follow up to its debut as a Control variant, we’re serving up a more challenging way to play Clash. To equip you with some knowledge, here’s Crucible Designer Jeremiah Pieschl with some tactical analysis you’ll need to excel.

“Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in that grey twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat.” - Theodore Roosevelt Jr.

Now that you’re ready to dare mighty things, let’s survey your upcoming battleground. Inferno Clash shares several traits with the Inferno Control mode. In case you didn’t dance with the fire last month, here’s a summary:
  • No Tracker
    • Players have no “radar” in the top left corner of their HUD
    • Super Good Advice: Please, please check your corners, Guardians
  • Simplified Scoring
    • We've removed as many scoring events as possible
    • The mode is solely about getting kills
    • Assists are good for teamplay but don’t net any points
  • Less Heavy Ammo
    • There’s only one set of Heavy crates per match
    • With no Tracker, it’s much easier to flank an aggressive opponent that’s pushing for kills because they have Heavy
    • Expect players to play more conservatively with Heavy ammo to try and get more bang for the buck
  • Communication
    • Though not specific to Inferno, communicating with your team can drastically push the odds into your favor
    • Whether you’re in a fireteam or using opt-in voice chat, remember to call out enemy locations and share other valuable intel with your team

The map lineup remains consistent between Inferno Control and Inferno Clash. Here are the venues of carnage you can look forward to:
  • The Anomaly
  • Firebase Delphi
  • Twilight Gap
  • Rusted Lands
  • Shores of Time
  • Blind Watch
  • Asylum
  • The Burning Shrine
  • The Cauldron
  • Pantheon

Happy hunting, Guardians!

Thanks, Jeremiah!

The Crucible heats up all over again at 11AM Pacific on Tuesday, March 31st. Bring along a Fireteam who will watch your back! Your enemies will creep up on you.
