How to Get Credits in Halo Infinite

Wondering how to get credits in Halo Infinite? Halo Infinite multiplayer's first season is live now, and with it comes the Halo Shop and a bevy of cosmetic options to help your Spartan stand out from the crowd. While you can earn some cosmetics through normal gameplay, most of the items in the shop cost credits.

343 handed out credits during the Halo Infinite test flight so you could get used to how the shop system worked. Now, however, you have to buy them with real money.

How to Get Credits in Halo Infinite

As it stands, the only way to get Halo Infinite credits is to buy them. Unlike in other games like Warzone, you can't earn credits from the Battle Pass to get the next one for 'free' if you complete the previous one.

At launch, here's how much credits cost:

  • 500 Credits for $5
  • 1,000 Credits for $10
  • 2,200 Credits for $20
  • 5,600 Credits for $50
  • 11,500 Credits for $100

It's unclear whether 343 will change its approach and make credits available through completing challenges or matches.

So What's XP for in Halo Multiplayer, Then?

Credits are different from XP, which you'll earn by finishing some of the many challenges in Halo Infinite's multiplayer campaign. XP unlocks Battle Pass ranks, but 343 said not every tier of the free Battle Pass will include a free new item. The free pass will have plenty of rewards, but if you want new items at every rank, you'll need to buy the paid Battle Pass with, you guessed it, credits.

On the bright side, Halo Infinite's Battle Pass never expires. If there's something you see and can't get at the time, it'll still be available later on.

There's also the occasional XP booster item you can pick up to double how much XP you earn. Obviously, that only applies to the free Battle Pass, but it helps in getting past the tiers with no rewards so you can get items you hopefully want.
