How Does The Halo Infinite Ranking System Work?

Very similar system to a previous Halo title.

November 15, 2021

Halo Infinite multiplayer was not supposed to arrive until next month, but we were all surprised with the early launch of the free-to-play Halo Infinite multiplayer beta that includes a familiar Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond, and Onyxranking system.

The Halo series has had a variety of different ranking and skill systems over the years, with Halo Infinite offering a system similar to Halo 5 Guardians.

Those playing in Ranked multiplayer will want to know what they should expect before jumping in when it comes to the new system, so we have put together a guide with just the information that you need to know.

Halo Infinite Ranking System Details

The Halo Infinite ranking system keeps track of players’ progress when playing Ranked matches in multiplayer as always, with there being multiple levels within each rank.

When it comes to ranked mode in Season 1, there are some specifics to know. The game modes are Slayer, Capture the Flag, Strongholds, and Oddball.

Your starting weapon will be the BR75, while all weapons, equipment, and grenades on each map will spawn in the same locations each time and at the same intervals.

Motion Tracker and Grenade Hitmarkers are disabled as well, while Friendly Fire will be enabled. In addition

Halo Infinite features six Ranks that include Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond, and Onyx. Within each of the first five, there are also levels of 1-6 to earn.

If you missed out on Halo 5’s multiplayer, this does not work as it did in say Halo 3 where you start at the bottom and rank up to levels by earning XP alone.

Instead, you start by competing in 10 placement matches, which you will even get an achievement for completing. After playing all 10 matches, you will be assigned a rank that you can move up or down from based on your performance in matches there forward.

This goes along with the season system that modern shooters employ, so this ranking is something that will reset after the first season and almost certainly require you to compete in placement matches again and start anew.

Does Multiplayer Beta Progress Carry Over?

The Halo Infinite free-to-play Multiplayer Season 1 Beta just went live a few weeks early and allows players to experience the game right away.

When it comes to many multiplayer betas, the rankings and such get wiped away prior to the launch of the game and make it not worth dedicating as much time to said betas.

Thankfully, the Halo Infinite multiplayer beta will carry over completely for when the game officially launches in a few weeks on December 8th. This means you can play to your heart’s content without worrying about your hard work being completely wiped away when it transitions from beta to the full release.

One of the main reasons for this is the fact that this beta is available for everyone, rather than being limited to those who get a code or something. As a result, the multiplayer is essentially released for the game in an official capacity, though keeping the beta name until December 8.
