Many improvements come from Halo Insiders feedback and Halo Support tickets submitted by our community. Thank you for participating and please keep submitting tickets!

  • Local Area Network (LAN) multiplayer is now available. There is a known issue for LAN multiplayer:
    • Match settings changed in the Mode Editor still show as the defaults. The changed settings work as expected once the match begins.
  • Players with AMD Radeon RX 500 Series GPUs no longer experience crashes because Async Compute in Video Settings is turned on. 
    • Players who have turned off Async Compute because of this can now turn it back on.
  • If Halo Infinite is launched without an internet connection, players can connect to the internet while on the main menu and play online. 
    • This does not resolve all scenarios where the game is launched connected to the internet, later loses internet connection, and is stuck offline until the game is restarted.
  • When launching in windowed mode on Steam, the window shows correct borders.


The following issues were resolved by the December 15 Hotfix.


  • Improvements to online service connections after re-entering Halo Infinite using Quick Resume on Xbox Series X|S consoles. Players should see quicker and more stable reconnections to our services.


  • MJOLNIR Armor Locker customizations collected in Campaign are now consistently unlocked in the Multiplayer Customization menu.
    • Players who did not receive their customizations, either due to losing their internet connection or using Quick Resume on Xbox Series X|S consoles, should now have their customizations unlocked.
  • Xbox Achievement reliability has been improved in this update.
    • Achievements no longer track progress toward their completion, but will unlock as expected when their conditions are met.
    • If an Achievement’s conditions were met prior to this update but the Achievement did not unlock as completed yet, it should unlock after installing this update and continuing Campaign gameplay.

Download size

Starting with no existing Halo Infinite installation:

Working with the developers, we have compiled a list of known issues. A few of the highest impact issues are:

  • When you purchase Halo Infinite Campaign in-game, there may be a delay of several minutes while the purchase is processed before you can play.
  • Equipment upgrades cannot be purchased in the Upgrades menu while using the Linear Navigation accessibility feature.
  • Fast travelling while dead may cause an endless load screen.
    • Workaround: Close Halo Infinite and reload the save game on the main menu.
  • Very rarely, players may be unable to progress the current mission. See Halo Infinite Campaign Known Issues for more details.
    • Workaround: Restart the mission.
