Halo Infinite updates will now start rolling out as the multiplayer mode has gone live early ahead of the campaign’s December 8, 2021 release date. With Halo Infinite ranks to chase, a battle pass to rank up in Season 1, and a collection of playlists to get stuck into, 343 Industries has its work cut out to keep the world of Halo Infinite fair and balanced for all.
And with the multiplayer mode also being free-to-play, the game is set to bring in an even bigger audience than ever before. As such, millions of players worldwide will be looking to work out what 343 is tweaking in the Halo Infinite update patch notes.
In this guide, we will give you the rundown of what has been tweaked with the latest Halo Infinite update so you know what you are in store for the next time you boot up the game on your Xbox or PC.
343 hasn’t confirmed the cadence of the Halo Infinite updates, but once we get a few weeks into the first Season of the game we should have a better idea.

Challenges have also been updated to better reflect all skill levels with Heat of the Moment, It Bears Repeating, Jorge Would Be Proud, and Ultra Tech being fixed. XP boosts now also last 1 hour, rather than 30 minutes.
