The Halo Infinite campaign was like no other entry in the series, and as much as we loved roaming around Zeta Halo, one minor issue was that there was no mission replay system.
Once you completed a major mission in the game, that was it - you either carried on or would be required to start a new save file in order to relive the moment.
Fortunately, 343 has previously mentioned how it's aware of players who would like to replay missions, and now in the latest update on Halo Waypoint, it's detailed how the new "Mission Replay" feature will be delivered alongside the game's Network Co-Op update.
The game's 'Network Co-Op Preview' will target the week of July 11th and the Season 2 roadmap mentioned it would drop around "late August", so the "Mission Replay" mode should also be released then.
In 343's update, it explained how the "more open nature of Infinite" posed new creative challenges, compared to traditional mission structures. So in this game, the Tac-Map will be used as a "gateway" to interacting with individual missions:
"In both Solo and Co-Op play, you can open your Tac-Map, highlight a completed mission, and then choose Replay. You will then be prompted to select the difficulty and be offered to activate any Skulls you (or your teammates) have collected.
"Setting a mission to replay resets it and teleports you (and your fireteam) to the location to tackle the challenge. You are free to wander off to do something else, Fast Travel away, or resume your furthest main mission."
As part of this new mode, 343 will be adding in some new achievements - some of the Mission Replay achievements will be targeted at "immaculate play challenges". Co-Op will be getting achievements, too.

Finally they got there.
And it’s sounds like the replay mission structure, able to leave and pick up on your latest mission has been well thought out.
Hope it’s delivered and bug free of course.
Now all we need is some much needed campaign expansion and exploration of new areas.
Yeah I couldn't force myself to even finish the campaign just the once .... so not for me.
Cool for those folks who want to go back for more I guess.
Don't know how much truth there is to this but apparently the first DLC Story Expansion to the Campaign will be releasing post 2024.
About time too, especially when I think about how many times I`ve replayed The Silent Cartographer
Im glad they finally released this co op mode, its been far too long overdue, and I hope people enjoy it.
Astonishing its taken a year to possibly get mission replay into the game! I personally wouldnt replay a mission cause I didnt enjoy the game, but theres plenty that would.
I really enjoyed the Campaign and was disappointed that I'd have to start all over again to obtain some missed collectibles. I'm looking forward to being able to reply missions and 100% the campaign.
343 need to abandon the open world formula and the one take cinematic. So much personality and artistry has been lost due to these design decisions.
Either make a Halo/Breath of the Wild that’s full of environment storytelling, diverse locales and rich atmosphere, or carry on with linear missions. Infinite is such a crummy half step.
How does it take a year past a year delay to deliver co-op and replaying levels? Seriously? How? Doom had "WARP 2 4" in freaking 1993, and 343 takes years to add level replay in
