With the recent ongoing pandemic, lots of people are stuck at home. Whether they are students who have their classes canceled or adults who have to work at home, there are more people looking to spend time playing video games instead of going out. To help encourage this, Halo is unlocking Double XP for Halo: Master Chief Collection and Halo 5 to make your time indoors more fun and to get your head out of the coronavirus panic.

“To help make your time inside a little more enjoyable, we've turned on Double XP globally for MCC and Halo 5. Additionally, logging in to Halo 5 will also earn you free Arena and Warzone XP Boost Packs weekly," the Halo Twitter account posted. "Please remember to wash your hands and keep it clean.” This, of course, is a sneaky reference to one of the achievements you can unlock from Halo: Reach called Keep It Clean. To unlock this one, you need to kill seven Moa’s in the second mission of Halo: Reach.

Recently, gaming has become even more popular by a huge margin with games like Counter-Strike: Global Offensive hitting one million concurrent players on Steam and many other games hitting milestones due to the lack of activities people can normally spend their time on. Unfortunately, gaming tournaments such as Rainbow Six Siege Pro League Season 11, Overwatch League, and League of Legends LCS are being canceled, postponed, or even changing to an online-only tournament due to the coronavirus pandemic.

So, what are your thoughts on Halo’s decision to offer Double XP for Halo: Master Chief Collection And Halo 5? Are you excited to grind the game for a while and hit the Major rank? Personally, I think it’s a good idea, as it keeps the players engaged in gaming and we can have fun as a community. Whatever your thoughts may be, let us know in the comments below.
