343 Industries Community Manager John Junyszek has taken to Twitter regarding concerns gamers have with Halo Infinite’s XP, progression system, and cheating.
This will certainly give a jolt to your progression and is a step in the right direction. It also appears that this may be the first of many tweaks to improve the system.
“We believe this increase will help address those slower initial payouts while also benefiting those of you jumping on each and every day…
We know many of you want even larger changes and we’re committed to doing so, but those will take time. We made this update based on data and player feedback, and we’ll monitor its impact after we push it live tomorrow morning. As always, keep sharing your feedback!”343 Industries Community Manager, John Junyszek
Regarding the situation with cheating, that is not going to be a quick fix.
There is currently no option to report a player from within the game yet, even though Junyszek said that 343 Industries knows this is a feature that gamers want. In the interim, he recommends that gamers report suspected cheaters using the following website. He even recommends that players provide video evidence of the cheating bastards in action.
Junyszek did not mention whether 343 Industries has any plans to allow players to opt-out of cross-play, as it appears the majority of culprits are coming from the PC side.
Halo Infinite releases on December 8, 2021, even though copies of the game are starting to appear out in the wild.
