According to the Kotaku website in an article written by Isaiah Colbert, here is the explanation about Halo Infinite Glitch which permits for campaign couch co-op. On the Kotaku website, it is explained that there is a player who has found a glitch that makes playing locally with a friend possible even though in a limited capacity.
There is a Youtuber named NobleActual who posted a video on Twitter on December 17th, 2021 where in the video, he shows the success of Halo Infinite glitch that permits him to be able to play co-op in the campaign of the game ahead of 343 Industries’s official launch of the feature. You are able to access Twitter and find the video and you will see that there are two players who are standing on the surface of Zeta Halo. One of the players moves and crouch in the other’s field of view. Same as most glitches, there are specific conditions that must be met so that you can finish the fight with your friend by your side.
NobleActual made the steps to be able to do the glitch. The first thing that you have to do is to get Halo Infinite’s status offline. After that, you have to connect your second controller and sign into an Xbox account. Then, you have to begin a campaign with your first controller. After you are in the game, then you have to press the start, back out and press start with the second controller and you need to add yourself to the fireteam.
It is explained that this glitch permits for some good old-fashioned couch co-op ahead of 343 Industries’s official implementation of the feature next year. However, player two will be limited in how their game will look and what they will be permitted to do during the campaign. Let’s take an example. The second player will be playing, but it is without a HUD. Seasoned players who use game-altering Skulls like the Blind Skull regularly, which removes the HUD of the game may find this caveat to be a feature rather than a limitation.
There are also some other limitations such as having broken lighting and not being able to progress in the story campaign or use the UNSC Forward Operating Bases. In addition, in case one of the players dies, the game will lock up and players will need to return to the main menu. However, it is important for you to know that this glitch does not work on PC or permit for online co-op play.
In the SVG website, it is explained that NobleActual shared that the glitch version of campaign co-op is broken and this mode is still incomplete at this time. Also, it was found that if you try to get the glitch to trigger, it can fully wipe a player’s save file. So, if you want to try this, you have to think twice. NobleActual as written on SVG site reported that saves refused to load after about 10 hours of trying to reproduce the glitch. And even the player said that they would not recommend to try this.
The Steps to Play Halo Infinite Co-Op Campaign
The steps to play Halo Infinite Co-Op Campaign have been explained above, but here I want to make it in bullet so that it will be easier for you to follow. However, once again, it is important for you to know that if you perform this glitch, it can ruin your saved data. So, if you are in the middle of the campaign or you have not completed it yet, you have to note that you may lose your current save when you are trying this glitch.
However, there are a different way to perform this method. As explained earlier, if you want to perform this glitch, the status of Halo Infinite must be offline. However, according to Charlie Intel site, it cannot be true offline (disconnecting from the network) from his current testing. Joseph Pascoulis, the writer in Charlie Intel site who wrote about it, believes that it must be that weird stage where Infinite disconnects you after quick resuming.
So, according to the Charlie Intel site, here are the steps to play the Halo Infinite campaign in co-op mode.
- First, you have to sign into a second Xbox live account with your second controller.
- After that, you have to load the Halo Infinite campaign.
- Now, the thing that you have to do is to press start on the main controller.
- And here, you have to hit the back button.
- In this step, you have to press start or back on the second controller so that you can join the fireteam.
- Now, co-op is enabled and you can enjoy it.
However, according to some other online sources such as Kotaku and NME, Halo Infinite must be offline so here are the complete steps for playing Halo Infinite campaign in co-op mode.
- The first thing that you have to do is that Halo Infinite must be offline.
- Then, you need to connect the second controller.
- After that, you have to sign in to an Xbox account.
- Now, you need to start the campaign with controller 1.
- In the game, you have to press start and then back.
- Now, on the second controller, you have to hit start so that you can add the second player to the fireteam.
- And now, you will see that Halo Infinite co-op is enabled.
