Halo Infinite Update Makes it Faster to Earn XP in the Battle Pass

Halo Infinite Update Makes it Faster to Earn XP in the Battle Pass - News

Microsoft and 343 Industries surprise released the the free-to-play Halo Infinite Multiplayer Beta and Season 1 for all players on the Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC. The campaign for Halo Infinite is still set to launch on December 8.

While the majority feedback from players have been positive, the one consistent negative is how slow it is to progress in the Battle Pass. 

343 Industries have now released an update to the game to make it faster to earn XP to level up the Battle Pass. The "Play 1 Game" Daily Challenges has been added and is worth 50 XP each. The Challenge deck is also getting updated to be better for players of all skill levels.

A bug where challenge progress was not being tracked has also been fixed. The Heat of the Moment, It Bears Repeating, Jorge Would Be Proud, and Ultra Tech Challenges will now be tracked properly. 

XP Boosts for the game will not last for one hour, rather than the 30 minutes it was previously set at. 

Due to these changes, all progress on Daily and Weekly Challenges have been reset. Due to the reset, 343 Industries is now giving every player who signs-in between November 23 and 30 this week's Ultimate Reward of the Sigil Mark VII Visor.

Considering that the changes went live about 72 hours after launch, I think we can safely say that they were working on this ahead of time. Maybe they were hoping people would like the existing system so that they could leave it alone. But, they clearly knew there was a possibility that they would have to do something fast, and were prepared to make changes right away.

I know 343 originally said they were going to work on it post-launch, but with the amount of backlash, I knew priority was going to be given to improving the battle pass progression. Hopefully this'll be completely fixed by launch. Along with an ACTUAL progression system, but that's more unlikely lol

I think it's fixed with "The "Play 1 Game" Daily Challenge is worth 50 XP each." now player can play normally and actually see some progress every match. On top of increasing the XP boost to one hour. If you buy the battle pass you will eventually get 16 XP Boost.

Amazing news, I wasted my two XP boost last night and 30min was way too short. I would of like them to have a permanent 50 XP boost for Winning a game to encourage players to focus on winning the game rather than trying to get XP.

But, the new solutions give a little reward and prevent players from quitting match early. The weekly challenge reset is actually a big deal will make it easy to get an extra 1-2 levels.

That was my biggest complaint is that I couldn't play the game the way I wanted to. I could, but I wasn't getting rewarded for it because my challenge said I had to play Oddball when I wanted to play BTB lol. Hopefully they'll have additional improvements over the next several weeks leading up the official launch!

I got a challenge yesterday to kill enemy trying to take over my zone. Well it felt like I shouldn't be going around getting new zone and was a distraction from just playing the game.
