First off, Halo Infinite at its core is absolutely beautifully crafted. I feel like I’m back in the Halo 3-Halo Reach days. But, the sheer lies in deceit we’ve received from 343 about what we can expect with armor customization, xp, challenges, feels shallow of them. (YouTube Video: FootedGhost - This did not age well)
The fact that we absolutely do not have millions of customization options on day one irks me.
1: The battle pass armor can only be equipped on the battle pass armor set that was Noble Six’s armor.
2: For the anniversary you gave us a really dope Master Chief green legendary armor paint that can only be equipped on the base armor set. Such wow…
3: Weekly challenge grind fest gives us unique armor colors or visor colors, that again, can only be used on the base set of armor which AGAIN has no armor available to equip.
4: The fact that you guys specifically stated and I quote “All of these rewards are single sourced so you’re never going to be confused about where things comes from if you can unlock something in the battle pass, we’re not going to let any other players circumvent that by purchasing it out of the store front.” Yet, the event battle pass you just released for Yori Armor, literally forces us to wait 3 months to get armor, when people can just drop $20 and get a better looking set of the same stuff.
5: And I quote “A lot of our stuff is unlocked through playing the game AND ONLY THROUGH PLAYING THE GAME”. Sure, this is correct to an extent. But, when we have 20 weekly challenges that can easily be completed in 2 days, then earn a measly 50xp when we drop 37 kills 7 deaths, 3 captures is such a turn off I literally don’t even want to play the game unless I have weeklies. But, continue to reward us with armor paints, visor colors that can only be equipped on the base armor set and nothing else.
6: The fact that no matter how hard I try to make my spartan look entirely unique, there’s always 10+ other people in back to back matches that have the exact same setup as me. It sucks looking like someone else when you’re sweating your balls off to get a new armor piece, then find out 10+ other players have the same color shade and armor setup as you. You can’t express your spartan at all. We all look the same unless you’re one of the weirdos that drops $200 on the entire pass to have everything.
7: Nothing about your microtransactions, challenge system, xp reward system, armor customization is a “Player first mentality”. This was a “Cash grab and business first mentality” and it really sucks being a hardcore halo player right now trying to enjoy this game to its fullest potential.
I really would’ve much preferred to have paid $60 for this game to have a complete package then the mess it is in now. I hope you take our feedback seriously and make the changes us players want to see, and come through on the promises you have made, that were very clearly twisted.
