Halo Infinite to follow Fortnite by adding free credits to its Battle Pass

Starting with Season 2, the Halo Infinite video game will begin rewarding players with in-game credits as part of its Battle Pass system.

One of the biggest criticism facing Halo Infinite’s multiplayer since launch has been the high price point of its cosmetics combined with the lack of ability to earn credits by playing the game. Fortnite, and other video games that implement the Battle Pass/Season mechanic for distributing new content, often reward players with in-game currency along with items for completing certain tasks or reaching season milestones so it was rather odd that Halo Infinite launched without such as feature.

Most players are aware of Battle Pass systems used in other games after all.

“Thanks to your continued feedback,” 343’s Jerry Hook posted on Twitter. “We are happy to confirm Credits will be earnable in Season 2’s Battle Pass. That means you will be able to earn Credits as part of your Halo Infinite progression. We’ll have more to share on this as we get closer to Season 2.”

Halo Infinite’s second season is currently scheduled to begin in May.

A number of adjustments and changes have been announced since Halo Infinite’s launch in late-2021 such as the reduction of cosmetic prices, some strategies for combatting cheaters, and new playlist options.
