Credits in Halo Infinite are a pretty unique turn for the franchise. Halo has not been known for the freemium currency model previously. The free multiplayer portion of the game, along with the open-world setup for the singleplayer, are also big departures for the series. The FPS genre has evolved a lot in 2021, so it makes sense that 343 would cash in with Battle Passes and a mountain of cosmetics.
Credits are the only currency used in the multiplayer portion of the new game. Players will be able to spend them on premium skins and other items. There are also armor sets, weapon effects and more. Along with the Battle Pass in Halo Infinite, players can use Credits to purchase exclusive armor, weapons, and vehicles.
Right now, the only way to get more Credits in Halo Infinite is to buy them. It may be possible that 343 adds special bundles of the premium currency at some point. It seems likely that the developer will hand small amounts of Creds for season events as well as possibly for completing huge milestones. This won’t happen often though, as it will cut into the profit margin of the game. Right now, there’s no plan for this to occur, we’re just expecting it.
