Every game has its share of glitches, but some prove to be so serious that they can interfere with the game experience. Many players tend to think of unfinished products seriously when they think of these game-breaking glitches, but these problems can affect even relatively polished games. . As discovered by VG247, players have just discovered a game breaking issue in the recent release Halo Infinite, another title received lots of compliments to polish its technique. Specifically, this glitch can completely corrupt the save files of those unfortunate enough to encounter it, and it can even negatively impact multiplayer matches.
Players from both the ResetEra and Halo Waypoint forums have discussed this issue. According to ResetEra user 99humanity, the issue stems from an issue where the game displayed a prompt for players to log into their account even though they were logged in before. Players can avoid glitches simply by not clicking on the prompt.
Insanit_Sicario on the Halo Waypoint forum said the game asked them to “fix and reset the app”, then things went wrong. Upon loading into the campaign, Master Chief is dead and the game is soft-locked. They exited the game and came back, but they couldn’t reload the save file.
An unfortunate oversight
But what causes the reminder to appear in the first place? Apparently, a prompt will show up whenever the console or PC detects new input, such as when a player reconnects the controller after disconnecting. Users initially noticed this glitch happening on Xbox consoles, but it seems to be able to happen on PC as well.
For multiplayer, this bug can lead to problems such as players spawning in the floor midway through a match. That’s certainly not ideal, but wiping out campaign save files will likely be seen by players as a bigger problem. Until Microsoft and 343 Industries resolve the problem in some form, the players of Halo Infinite will have to try their best to avoid it. The video below can help players do just that.
Halo Support’s Twitter account didn’t mention the bug, but did share a link about how to report problems.
