[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]It has been a few weeks since Halo Infinite’s free multiplayer beta was dropped by surprise. The game came three weeks earlier than expected and there has been an endless loop of feedback.
The game has received overall positive feedback, but there have been quite a few complaints from the player base. Mostly involving the battle pass and how grindy it is to level up. Slower than molasses in December comes to mind when it comes to progression in Halo Infinite.
When it came to the limited-time event, the complaints became even louder. The overwhelming majority of players claim they can’t complete the event until it returns in a couple of months. However, 343 Studios assures that they are listening and that changes are coming.
“Yes I am still playing Halo and feeling everyone’s pain on progression,” design lead Jerry Hook said. “We are back at it next week and this will be top of my list with the team.”
In order to level up, players have to complete specific challenges. These challenges can range from 200 to 350 XP upon completion and 1000 XP is needed to progress to the next level.
Why it’s a problem
But the problem is that there are a limited amount of challenges and you only get a measly 50 XP for completing a game. And we didn’t forget the awful design of swapping out challenges for loot you can just simply purchase. Come on, 343, let’s get it together here.
Hopefully, now that the official campaign and full game experience has been released we will see this developer support that we keep hearing about. Halo Infinite progression really shouldn’t be such a hotly contested topic. The ball is in 343 Studios court to make things right with their fans.
