[Update – January 14 @ 2:30 PM ET]: Earlier today, community director for 343 Industries, Brian Jarrard, posted an update on the Big Team Battle (BTB) hotfix on the Halo Waypoint forum. According to Jarrard, Halo Infinite will have a hot update for BTB in the “middle of next week”. To make up for the issues, 343 will provide 5 XP boosts and 5 challenge swaps to all players once the hotfix is ​​implemented. There will also be a patch mid-February, with more information coming soon.

The original story, published January 11, is as follows.

It didn’t take long after the launch, scams popped up in Halo Infinite. With Shooter by 343 Industries is free to play, some degree of cheating is to be expected. But Infinite have suffered in this department to a large extent. Thankfully, the developers plan to roll out the improved anti-cheat detection to Halo Infinite. Along with the news, the game is also receiving a fix for the long-broken Big Team Battle – or BTB – mode.

As posted by Community Manager Brian Jarrard on official Halo Forum, an anti-cheat update is coming. The developer claims that cases of fraud have been identified and 343 Industries has been “working on a patch for mid-February”.

Jarrard also explained why players will have to wait for the patch. Matchmaking has “other dependencies” that can affect parts of the game.

Furthermore, a BTB hotfix is ​​live and will be available on live servers in the near future. This hotfix will resolve a number of issues with the game mode including random disconnects and difficulty joining lobbies.

Cheating is inevitable

This is not the first time an employee of 343 Industries has spoken out about the anti-fraud situation in the country Halo Infinite. Before, HaloJohn Junyszek’s senior community manager also gave thoughts on Twitter. A tweet posted in November explains that cheating is a natural part of supporting a free PC game. However, Junyszek wrote that he and the rest of the team are “prepared and committed” to tackle it as best they can.

The specifics of InfiniteThe anti-cheat detection of is not known but it is not thought to be well done. Strange, Halo: Master Main Collection launched with Easy Anti-Cheat support, but there is no known equivalent tool in Infinite.

It’s frustrating for all involved. Playing with cheaters is never fun and until this promised update arrives, the situation is unlikely to improve. Meanwhile, 343 Industries encourages players to report cheaters as quickly as possible through Halo Support site. It’s not an ideal system, but will have to work for the time being until a better alternative is implemented.
