Halo Infinite update release time, store updates, and battle pass not loading, explained


Halo Infinite

Halo Infinite has undergone changes after its multiplayer launch, and soon, one of the most frequently requested features will finally be added in a new update. This is, of course, the addition of a dedicated Slayer playlist. Ahead of this major update, however, players have been experiencing issues with the game’s battle pass. When will a fix for this become available, and when will the Halo Infinite Slayer playlist go live? Here’s everything you need to know about the latest Halo Infinite multiplayer update, along with steps you can take to fix the battle pass issue, and details for the new shop items.

When does the Halo Infinite Slayer playlist go live?

The dedicated Halo Infinite Slayer playlist will be available on December 14 at 1 p.m. Eastern. But this isn’t the only playlist that will go live following the update. Joining Slayer are Fiesta, Free-for-All, and Tactical Slayer (SWAT). This is great news, as you’ll no longer have to rely on quickplay to get into some of your favorite modes. This news comes by way of 343 Industries on Reddit.

No more Odd Ball!


As part of that Reddit post, the December 14 update will address “player feedback,” and will begin with “a basic Slayer offering to start,” with expanded “variants in a future update.”

How to fix the Halo Infinite battle pass not working issue

Ahead of the December 14 update, players have reported issues with the battle pass not loading, instead, getting stuck in an endless loop. This issue is tied to the upcoming update and has been resolved for many players, but if you’re still experiencing issues, there are a few things you can try.

Players have reported issues with the battle pass ahead of the December 14 update.

  • Try restarting the Halo Infinite app and your Xbox/PC. This has had varying results, but it’s worth trying. You can take it a step further by restarting your router as well.
  • You can delete your local Halo Infinite save the file, or reinstall the entire game itself.
  • Others have encountered an issue after purchasing the Premium Battle Pass Bundle. The premium battle pass bundle grants players 25 level unlocks, but they aren’t automatically applied. Instead, you must manually apply 100 XP Grant Tokens from the Boost menu to gain battle pass levels.
  • Unfortunately, the best thing you can do is wait for the December 14 update to go live, as this will likely solve the widespread battle pass issue.
