Halo Infinite's excellent multiplayer suite has generally been going down a storm with players since the game launched back in November of 2021. However, there have also been some widely reported issues with how the mode's Battle Pass progression system works, the pace at which gamers earn XP and, more specifically, how the game's XP boosts work in real-time rather than only being used up whilst players are actually in-game and blasting away.
The nature of how these controversial XP boosts work, ticking down towards expiration from the moment you activate them rather than pausing every time you leave a match, has now been causing even more issues due to the online portion of the game suffering from recent server outages which have seen players lose out on their hard-earned XP boosts entirely.
It's not an ideal situation, especially given that Halo Infinite's XP boosts can be bought with real-world cash as well as earned, very slowly, by making your way through the ranks of the Battle Pass. It now seems as though it's also a situation which may not be something 343 Industries can actually do anything about, meaning fans are just gonna have to suck up those XP losses.
As first reported by PCGamesN, one irate player got in touch with Halo Support about the issue and received the following response over on Halo's subreddit;
As you can imagine, the responses to this post by 343 Industries haven't exactly been friendly, with players repeatedly bringing up the fact that these are paid for items in many cases, and that something needs to change fast to avoid this troublesome issue occurring again and again.
Have you lost out on XP boosts due to server outages in Halo Infinite? What do you think 343 Industries should do to help solve the issue in future? As always, let us know your thoughts in the comments!
