Halo Infinite Progression Is Being Worked on Says Head of Design

We Don’t Even Get Paid in Experience Now

Halo Infinite’s multiplayer beta has been out for a couple of weeks. The core gameplay is great. Halo’s back. Everyone and their mother has been playing it and streaming it, but everyone has also noticed something that need improving.

As we laid out in one of our recent features, Halo Infinite has a couple of glaring issues that it needs to work through, despite it being a ton of fun. It is still considered a beta, so these things should get smoothed out in due time. There is a distinct lack of game modes and the progression system is like a snail in slow motion.

As it stands right now, unlocking content in the battle pass requires XP, but the only way to get XP is to complete daily and weekly challenges. You could play every waking hour of the day (which is not recommended), but you would not gain any more XP than any other player.

343 Industries’ Head of Design, Jerry Hook has spoken about this and described it as “pain”. He also says that adjusting it would be his top priority this week. There is no timeframe on when players can expect an update though.

All you got to remember is that this is still a beta and some things are still being worked out. You can also take comfort in the fact that Season 1 has been extended until May 2022. Hopefully, you will not need all that time to grind away at that content though.

Halo Infinite multiplayer is available now on PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.
