Halo Infinite Players Aren't Impressed With Battle Pass Changes

The surprise launch of the Halo Infinite multiplayer beta has been relatively well-received by fans of the franchise, with many praising it as a true return to form for Halo. But while there's been a lot of praise for how Halo Infinite multiplayer plays, there's been some criticism aimed at its progression, with many complaining about how slow the Battle Pass levels up. 343 Industries has pushed out changes to the Battle Pass in response, but it seems like they're not enough to satisfy fans.

343 Industries has changed the Halo Infinite Battle Pass progression so now players will earn XP every time they complete a match, with wins worth 50 XP each. 343 has also fixed an issue with Halo Infinite challenges where progress wasn't being tracked properly, specifically addressing the problems with the Heat of the Moment, It Bears Repeating, Jorge Would Be Proud, and Ultra Tech challenges.

343 Industries has also made it so Halo Infinite XP boosts last 1 hour instead of 30 minutes, though let fans know that the in-game timer may still erroneously show 30 minutes. Unfortunately for Halo Infinite fans who have been grinding away at the game's challenges, implementing these changers has meant that 343 has had to reset its Daily and Weekly Challenges, though it's making it up to players by giving a free Sigil Mark VII Visor to anyone that signs on between November 23 and November 30.

While the general consensus seems to be that Halo Infinite's Battle Pass progression needs reworked, it seems many fans are still not satisfied with the changes. Some have complained about having their challenge progress reset, while others have argued that the changes don't go nearly far enough to address the slow progression issues. Some pointed out how there was already a challenge for completing two matchmade Halo Infinite games in exchange for 100 XP, and that 50 XP per match is still pretty low.

It seems many fans would rather see Halo Infinite ditch the challenge-based XP system in favor of something more traditional, where they are given credit for kills, objectives, winning matches, etc. like in most other games, with the challenges being optional to get extra XP.

It's worth pointing out that even though Halo Infinite Battle Pass progression moves at a snail's pace, that players have a very long time to complete it. Halo Infinite Season 1 lasts until May 2022, and even if players fail to complete the Battle Pass by then, they can keep working on it later. Unlike other games with Battle Passes, the Halo Infinite Battle Passes never expire and players can pick and choose which one they're working on at any given time.

Halo Infinite launches December 8 for PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X. You can also download the latest Halo Infinite Cheats from WeMod.
