Halo Infinite isn’t all that far away at this point with a Q4 2021 release window. With the technical preview now available, fans are beginning to uncover how 343 Industries plans on handling some of the game’s features. In this guide, we’ll take a look at the battle pass system specifically, with details on the price, rewards, and Halo’s unique way of keeping season passes around forever.
Halo Infinite Battle Pass 0 Cost
We don’t yet know how much a battle pass will cost in Halo Infinite. In the Master Chief Collection, battle passes were a free experience and all you had to do was choose which one you wanted to progress. That won’t be the case in Infinite as there is a free and a premium track much like you’d expect from comparable games.
In the technical test it costs 250 credits though it’s unknown how much real world currency these will cost or if that is the actual price when the game releases.
None of the items unlocked will carry over to the full game.
Halo Infinite Battle Pass Dates
Much like the Master Chief Collection, 343 Industries isn’t handling season passes like you would expect. Unlike other titles, battle passes never expire. They won’t go away even when new season passes launch. You’ll always be able to go back and grind for whatever collectible you want. All you need to do is choose which one you want to progress.
Each battle pass will take roughly 30-40 hours to complete and rewards must be unlocked in order. If you want that cosmetic at Tier 79, you’re going to have to unlock the previous 78 ranks first.
How to Progress the Battle Pass
Halo Infinite does not award battle pass progress for playing matches. Everything is focused around daily and weekly challenges. These are meant to be easily completable as 343 doesn’t want people to need to play the game like it’s a full time job. For example, a daily quest may ask you to play any match. A weekly could task you with completing two matches, killing five enemies with the Commando Rifle, or finishing a single game of slayer. You won’t need to play hours of Halo every day just to keep up with the latest content.
