The radar isn't going to be as friendly as it was during the beta.

'Halo 5: Guardians' drops this week, and 343 Industries wants to help you sharpen up your multiplayer skills before you dive into the fray.

Even if you think you mastered gameplay during the shooter's beta, you might want to catch up on what has changed since the beta ended. One of these changes has to do with the game's motion tracker radar. As the video details, the radar during the beta had a range of 30 meters, allowing players to keep better tabs on what enemies were doing. For the official launch, however, that radar radius has been almost halved to cut down on overly cautious players focusing on evasion instead of engagement.

The video also breaks down some of the game's Spartan abilities that give players increased movement options. Abilities like jump stabilization, along with the return of crouch jumping, allow dexterous players to jump to ledges that would otherwise be inaccessible.

The video also goes into the customization options of 'Halo 5' and the design philosophy behind the starting weapons of multiplayer matches. You can check out the whole thing below.
