343 Industries has outlined more changes for Halo Infinite’s progression system in multiplayer following feedback from fans. Community manager John Junyszek explains on Twitter that your initial six matches each day will now offer more experience points to ease the battle pass grind.
You’ll now get 300XP for your first match, 200XP for your second and third, 100XP for your fourth, fifth, and sixth, and 50XP for seven and beyond. “We believe this increase will help address those slower initial payouts while also benefiting those of you jumping on each and every day,” Junyszek says.
343 Industries’ initial changes to progression included daily ‘play one game’ challenges, updated weekly challenges, and doubled duration for some experience boosts. While this helped, Junyszek notes that the team felt that players weren’t getting enough experience points at the start of their play sessions. “After seeing how XP was earned with those changes, we noticed that players were starting their sessions with slower payouts than we’d like,” he says. “To address this, we will be increasing the XP payout for the first six matches of each day.”
