What Music Works Best for Halo Infinite Montages

So its always been an interesting thing to work around in Halo games, figuring out what style of music works with what kind of gameplay. BPM matters a lot, and some of the slower paced Halos can get away with more laid back music. But Infinite is a little weird in that regards.

Its faster paced, but not so fast paced that a high octane jam or bubblegum pop really fits. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tz4kF56mw0o

I hear a lot of people using Trap music or Mumble Rap or something, but I’ve never liked either personally even though it might fit the pace they’re going for. My older montages were just made with songs I liked that I could kind of sync up the clips to, but I rarely had to worry about it because Halo 3 was a fairly slow paced game and more music fit it.

IDK, I was just wondering what anyone else thinks about this topic, if they even care in the first place.

Death Metal or Punk for me personally. But I know that the kids don’t like that.

Feel like any song will work depending on the editing. If the clips are a bit longer than the slower paced songs definitely give them more time to breathe.

If someone said I had to make a montage tonight I’d tell them firstly I suck and have no clips. Secondly, the song I’d likely use is SOS - Sueco ft Travis Barker.

Back in Halo 2, I was working on a montage with that song.

This was one of the last Halo montages I ever made, back in 2008…

I like all these things people are posting, feel free to keep it up

I know this might be odd but I’ve always felt like Mumford and Sons fit Halo MCC, Halo 3 specifically, and I can’t adequately explain why. The pace of the gameplay and music just seem to fit

I think this song here is just perfect:

It has a great dynamic and some clear “beats” to match your cuts…is that how you explain it? Don’t know how to describe… :smiley:

If it’s a fail montage, classical music is like the peanut butter to the fail’s jelly. The Thieving Magpie easily comes to mind for such clips.

For your trick shot or awesome play montages, any genre of song that has a nice beat drop to sync with that one or two plays usually works. Sometimes it’s cringe, but it’s more common than you think.

I had to look that one up but I get it now lol

Imo the less vocals the better. I feel like alot of EDM or House music are popular for making montages in general because of how the music complements the gameplay without someone crooning meaningless words in the background.

Or if you want SOME vocals, there are some EDM with minimal vocals.
