To level up fast in Halo Infinite, you’ll need to know about a few strategies to maximize your XP gains as you play. The challenge-based progression system that’s tied to battle passes was a sticking point for Halo Infinite to start with but has undergone some changes to improve things. Even though battle passes don’t ever expire in this game, some players may want to finish off the Season 1 pass before the arrival of Halo Infinite Season 2. 343 Industries has said more changes to progression are in the works, but for now, here’s everything for you to know about how to level up quick in Halo Infinite.

The Halo Infinite Battle Pass isn’t an easy thing to level up fast even after the updates, mainly because there’s so few ways to level up that there’s not really any room for exploits and tricks along the way. Progression is achieved at time of writing by completing daily and weekly challenges, all of which gain you EXP, and that’s the only way of doing it right now – performance-based rewards from killstreaks, wins and clever play are non-existent unless they serve challenge completion.
However, while this is a very limited bracket to work within, there are some tips we can provide to make the whole thing a bit more efficient.
- Focus on specific challenges: Some challenges are so specific that simply playing the game means you might not get them for a while. Instead, check before every game, then see what seems feasible once you’re in the match. For example, if you have a challenge about sniper rifle headshots, see if there’s one on the map for you to use, then prioritise getting it ASAP.
- Play as much as possible: A recent update provided a 300XP reward for the first game played every day, with declining XP bonuses for subsequent matches until levelling out at 50XP until the next day. Playing regularly earns big rewards for players, in other words. The actual descending order of earning goes as follows (and this escalation resets every day):
- First match: 300XP
- Second match: 200XP
- Third match: 200XP
- Fourth match: 100XP
- Fifth match: 100XP
- Sixth Match: 100XP
- Seventh game and onwards: 50XP
- Use challenge swaps smartly: You can buy one-use Challenge Swap tokens from the store that allow you to exchange one challenge for another random one, but you can also get them for completing stages of the Pass itself. They’re rare enough that you want to use them when absolutely necessary – for example, one challenge might ask you to hijack multiple aircraft (not easy) while another simply asks you to complete a few matches (just a matter of time). Clearly some can be thrown out without regret, just make sure you don’t waste the swaps you have.
- EXP Boosts and EXP Grants: When all else fails, you can spend real money in the store on these single-use perks. EXP Boosts double the amount of experience you earn for an hour, so if you have a bunch of high-value challenges close to completion, this can do a lot for you. Meanwhile, the EXP Grants are basically payments for blocks of experience. Depending on your circumstances, either of these might be more effective, but neither is free.
- Use events to your advantage: As we saw from the Fractures: Tenrai event, these tend to come with a lot of easy, high-reward challenges. Stack up a bunch of these, trigger an EXP boost, and let the levels come rolling in. Applied right, you can go up five levels within the hour.
That’s the most we have to offer right now, but we’ll be sure to update this page as more information and updates come through. The changes to the Battle Pass have been well-received, but it’s likely we’ll see more refinements and changes over the coming months, as the developers have been receptive to player feedback and clearly want to maintain long-term interest in Halo Infinite.
How to level up the Event Pass fast and unlock the Yoroi armor core
When it comes to levelling up the event pass for the Halo Infinite Tenrai event, that’s a little different. This event isn’t tied to experience in any way, but the specific Fiesta-related challenges with orange tags on them. For each one you complete, you’ll raise a rank higher in that event pass. However, event-related challenges are limited for each week the even tis available, so players will have to return each time and rack up the few challenges that are there to progress the Tenrai pass a little further. The final Fracture: Tenrai event will run from April 19 – 25, so this is your last chance to get event rewards!
When it comes to actually progressing through the challenges as fast as possible to unlock the Yoroi armour core set, that’s not too difficult. Most of the Tenrai event challenges are pretty easy, involving playing the Fiesta game mode in some form – getting headshots, wins, or just playing it enough. However, they’re mixed in with other challenges and it might be difficult to get through those to fill it back with the upcoming event challenges. Our above advice to focus on specific challenges and use challenge swaps smartly both apply here – if you have event challenges, prioritise those. If you don’t, try and beat the easiest, quickest ones, or just trade them out for something more manageable.
