The Season 1 mid-season update for Halo Infinite is here and it brings a bunch of improvements for Xbox consoles and PC.

First, the developers have implemented multiple improvements to the Quick Resume feature on Xbox Series X/S. This includes increased reliability when reconnecting to multiplayer games and fewer prompts to buy the campaign if you’ve already purchased it digitally.

In addition, Halo Infinite’s cheat detection system has been improved, though how effective it is at thwarting hackers remains to be seen. Furthermore, sound effects for receiving damage as well as gunfire and enemy footsteps are now louder in multiplayer, allowing you to tell where the action is or whether the enemy is closing in on your location.

You can also take advantage of the color accuracy improvements if you’re playing on PC and are using an AMD GPU with a FreeSync capable monitor. If you’re going to enable HDR, make sure to have the feature checked in both Windows and the AMD Radeon software.


  • First-person animations, including reloading and clambering, now appear smoother at all framerates.
  • The following sound effects are louder in the audio mix for both multiplayer and campaign:
    • Enemies throwing grenades
    • The Needler's supercombine
    • Player Ravager completing its charge

  • Added new telemetry to help our developers gather more information on shot registration issues

  • The Optimal Polish Initiated armor coating is now available for all players who have submitted a valid code on Halo Waypoint
  • Players standing on destroyed vehicles will no longer experience stuttering or desyncs
  • Matchmaking playlists now reflect accurate Estimated Wait times
  • The Post-Game Carnage Report (PGCR) will now reflect the correct winning team after online matches
