Halo Infinite‘s multiplayer will let players earn Credits in its Season 2 Battle Pass that they will be able to use in the in-game shop to buy items, cosmetics, and even a new Battle Pass.
Shared by 343 Industries Head of Design Jerry Hook and following “continued feedback” from the community, 343 has decided to make it so Credits will be earnable in Halo Infinite’s next Battle Pass, which will begin after Season 1 comes to a close in May 2022.
It will be welcomed news for Halo Infinite fans who have, up until now, only been able to unlock Credits – the only in-game currency players can use to purchase items from the store, including Spartan skins – via real-cash microtransactions.
“Thanks to your continued feedback, we are happy to confirm Credits will be earnable in Season 2’s Battle Pass,” tweeted 343 Industries’ head of design, Jerry Hook earlier today.
While Hook could not elaborate on this further, it will likely be as a small amount of Credits as an unlockable reward in the Battle Pass instead of a cosmetic. Over the last week, 343’s head of design announced changes to store pricing and a further fix to Big Team Battle – as the last one didn’t work.

Hook also confirms that this will be a permanent change going forward, so all Seasons from two onwards will have Credits as a Battle Pass reward.
