Halo Infinite – 30 November 2021 Patch Notes | Performance issues fixed!


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

  • The Background Recording feature in Windows 10 and the Record What Happened feature in Windows 11 can cause performance issues when enabled.
    • Turning these features off improves performance. They can be turned off in the Capture Settings menu in Windows 10 and the Captures menu in Windows 11.
  • Some first-person animations may stutter at 60 FPS or higher.
  • In Ranked Arena playlists, completed matches occasionally do not count toward your rank and will not show in the stats at the end of the match.
  • Plugging in a mouse & keyboard during an active game session on an Xbox console locks the player to a 45 degree look radius.
    • This issue does not occur if the mouse is already plugged in when the game is launched.



An update for the Halo Infinite Multiplayer Beta was released on November 19th, 2021, at 8 AM PT. The following improvements and fixes were included in this update:

  • Halo Credits purchased outside of Steam, for example in the Microsoft Store, are now reflected when playing Halo Infinite on Steam
  • Oddball rounds now have a 5-minute timer in matchmaking

Challenge and Progression Changes

XP Boosts were increased to 1 hour. The in-game tooltip may continue to show 30 minutes, but the Boost’s timer will start from 60 minutes once activated.
