Known Issues

Working with the developers, we have compiled a list of known issues. A few of the highest impact issues are:

  • The Background Recording feature in Windows 10 and the Record What Happened feature in Windows 11 can cause performance issues when enabled.
    • Turning these features off improves performance. They can be turned off in the Capture Settings menu in Windows 10 and the Captures menu in Windows 11.
  • Some first-person animations may stutter at 60 FPS or higher.
  • In Ranked Arena playlists, completed matches occasionally do not count toward your rank and will not show in the stats at the end of the match.
  • Plugging in a mouse & keyboard during an active game session on an Xbox console locks the player to a 45 degree look radius.
    • This issue does not occur if the mouse is already plugged in when the game is launched.

Resolved Issues

In future patch overviews Halo Support will list bug fixes in this section. If you find an issue in-game and would like to report it to the development team, please submit a ticket.

If you would like to provide feedback that is not a bug, we encourage you to post in the Halo forums.

Balance Changes

When there is a balance change in future updates, Halo Support will include these in our release notes.

I have never been one to take on playing Beta versions of any video games but my love for Halo Games had me give this Halo Infinite Beta Multiplayer Beta version a good go and it wasn't that bad. I'd rate the Beta version of the game 7/10.
