343 Industries’ latest update to the “Halo Infinite” battle pass XP system makes it more user-friendly and faster to climb, indicating that the company is still listening to and responding to player input. The new improvements dramatically enhanced daily XP gains after a previous change that had them come at a rate of 50 XP per match every time. With that in mind, here’s the newest and most effective approach to progress through the Halo Infinite battle pass.
The new Halo XP gains are front-loaded for players who log on for the first time each day, and they’re designed to entice you to come back every day. According to John Junyszek, Halo’s community manager, the team’s current fix rewards enormous amounts of XP for the first six matches of each day, as follows:
- 1st Game = 300 XP
- 2nd Game = 200 XP
- 3rd Game = 200 XP
- 4th Game = 100 XP
- 5th Game = 100 XP
- 6th Game = 100 XP
You’ll get 50 XP for every game you play after the first half-dozen in a single day, which was previously the very meager amount for any daily games played. As you can see, the gains have much increased, despite the fact that 343 claims that additional adjustments to the progression mechanism are in the works. This was one that the team was able to do quickly, according to the team.
How to level up even faster in Halo
While these gains are far more appealing than we’ve seen in the past, they can be further boosted with XP increases. You might already have XP boosts in your inventory—check the Boosts section of the Challenges menu—and each boost gives you one hour of double XP for all challenges completed while it’s active. If you don’t have any XP boosts right now, you can get more by either winning higher tiers in the battle pass or buying them as consumables in the game’s real-money store, which are sometimes combined with challenge swaps.
Playing your first six games every day under the new system will get you 1,000 XP, which is exactly enough to level up in the battle pass once without any XP boosters or completing any other objectives. Applying enough boosts for your first six games of the day—completing them all will take around two hours, so two boosts—guarantees you’ll level up twice per day in “Halo Infinite”, as long as you play at least six games—guarantees you’ll level up twice per day in “Halo Infinite”.
This doesn’t even take into account other challenges you’re likely to finish in that time frame each day, such as those that don’t involve PvP and are easier to complete versus bots. As a result of all of this, you’ll probably level up even faster than this.
We’re as excited as you are to see the “Halo Infinite” battle pass system improve over time, but in the meanwhile, this is a great workaround. Spartan, I’ll see you in the arena for at least six matches.
