What you need to know
- Halo Infinite Multiplayer is a solid product but the slow progression of the battle pass and the recent limits of the Tenrai event are not sitting well with fans.
- Brian Jarrard, community director at 343 Industries, says that they are listening intently, but need time for rolling all the changes out.
Halo infinite Multiplayer was a surprise to many fans earlier this month. For the first time in the series history, Halo offered a free-to-play multiplayer that offers crossplay with PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S players.
Unfortunately, after a little over a week, fans are annoyed with minor issues, with the most recent instance being the Tenrai event which launched yesterday. If you complete the current challenges in the event, you will have to wait for the event to return in January 2022 for you to complete it further, and this will continue throughout the first season of the game, which is exepcted to last until May 2022.
Prior to this, fans compained about the massively slow progression in the battle pass, and while 343 tweaked the XP gained and offered more ways to gain XP, it is still slow for many players. Lastly, fans are also not happy with the cost of the cosmetic items in the games.
Been traveling so slow to respond - but please know the constructive feedback is being heard loud and clear. Changes will take time and our priority this week is giving the team a much deserved break for the holiday after a long final stretch. Thank you for understanding. 🙏Been traveling so slow to respond - but please know the constructive feedback is being heard loud and clear.

Brian Jarrard, the community director for 343 Industries, weighed in with how crucial fan feedback is and that the team is actively listening. However, after how much work the team has done for the game so far, the studio is now focused on giving the team much needed rest as the holiday season slowly rolls in.
Fans are hoping that once the holidays are over, the game will get further improvements to it if it wants to keep the momentum going. However, the update from Jarrard also means that we shouldn't expect any major fixes or updates during the holidays.
Halo is back
Halo Infinite is the next chapter in this legendary first-person shooter franchise, and it sees epic multiplayer return alongside another Master Chief adventure. Halo Infinite's multiplayer is better than ever, and gives players a number of ways to personalize their Spartan.
"We hear your feedback, but we're on holiday, please be understanding" says the company that released a timed, gated event with terrible monetization during a holiday.
So what? I agree the battle pass needs changes but that could have been in the works already for months. Them saying they're working on it isn't mutually exclusive nor necessarily contradictory.
Looks good but to not have a choice of what to play no swat the cycle of the games ranked or not is always odd ball ctf any n everything else but slayer. You for a reason I can’t understand is y a person can’t adjust their sensitivity for the controller. There was also ample time to be able to make this new gem halo like the best ever it’s not that not not bad but I genuinely hope it gets better. Happy holidays!
