The latest entry to the highly popular HALO series has got the whole world by storm and for the very right reasons. HALO Infinite was one of the most awaited releases of the year 2021 and the surprise release of the game early on has only made players more thrilled about the game. If you haven’t tried it out yet, the best way to get it is from Gamecamp where you can find all the available deals for the game.
On top of it all, the game’s out for the grab for the Xbox Game Pass players right from the very first day, which has surely played a HUGE hand in the rapidly growing popularity of the game. The developers also made sure that this new title carries over your progress, which definitely is a massive plus.
But the thing is, HALO Infinite seems to be nothing like its predecessor in terms of the ranking system. Developers have made some significant changes to how your rank in the game and players are already going crazy about it, not to mention, confused as to how it actually works.
HALO Infinite Ranking
HALO Infinite has changed the ranking system quite a lot, with players having to grind through the battle pass instead of earning the exp points to rank up. And from experience, we know that the Battle Pass in HALO Infinite takes quite a lot of time to get through.
Fortunately, we don’t have to worry about that as developers have made grinding through the Battle Pass a bit easier for us. But it still takes a lot of effort and skills to climb up the ranks. So the way HALO Infinite ranking system is going to work is you won’t be ranking up from the exp points that you earn from the matches instead you will have to complete the daily, weekly, and the monthly tasks to acquire the xp points in order to rank up using HALO Infinite’s Battle Pass with over 100 tiers in total.
How Does it Work?
So as you start playing the game, you will have to play 10 placement matches for the game to assess your level and assign you starting rank. The starting will be purely based on how well you perform in those 10 matches.
So once you have completed the placement matches and a rank is assigned to you, only then can you play the ranked matches, and based on your starting rank, the game will be able to match you with the players who are evenly ranked as you for fair competition. And you might also be restricted to use certain weapons and items based on your rank.
Currently, the game has 3 lobbies that you can play at the start of the game Queue, Solo, and Duo. You can play the queue to match with players using keyboard and mouse or the controller. The solo and duos work in pretty much the same way they sound.
What are the Ranks in HALO Infinite
Now that you know the basics of how the ranking system works in HALO infinite, we can move forwards and talk about the total number of ranks in the game that you will have to grind for.
So basically the ranks in HALO Infinite are divided into 6 different categories and each of these rank categories are also divided into 6 ranks or levels, except for the last one.
HALO Infinite Battle Pass
HALO Infinite isn’t the only FPS multiplayer title jumping to a more robust and grind-y system for the in-game rankings, we recently saw Valorant switching the rank system for ranked arena matches to make things fair for the players to rank up their valorant account. However, it will make the players grind hard in order to climb the ranks quicker.
As for the Battle Pass, HALO Infinite currently offers 2, free and premium Battle Pass that the players can have and both these battle passes don’t expire with time, so players will have plenty to practice and step up their game in order to match the difficulty. So that is how the ranking system works in HALO Infinite and I am sure you are as thrilled as we are to try out this system and come up with ways to rank faster in the game before everybody else. Just go easy on yourself, it might take a bit of getting used to but once you get the hold of it, you will be rocking the stage in no time.
