Halo Infinite currently doesn’t allow players to pick which playlists they want, but this trick enables you to check which mode you’re about to play, which can save you a lot of time. 

Halo Infinite’s Battle Pass challenges require players to get kills with certain weapons or vehicles and play select game modes to reach the next tier. This may not seem like a problem, but the lack of playlist options makes completing these challenges difficult. Not only does this lead to many players leaving online lobbies, but it can also waste a lot of time that could be spent leveling up the Battle Pass.

Instead, the game randomly selects from modes like Oddball, CTF, Slayer, and Strongholds. Fortunately, one Halo Infinite player has discovered a trick that can save you a lot of time when queuing up for multiplayer matches.

Halo’s Battle Pass has been an issue for players since the early test flights.

While Spartans can’t select the mode they wish to play, this Reddit user’s nifty trick can save you a lot of time. It’s important to note that the method above only works for unranked Halo Infinite matches, so it’s best not to try replicating this for competitive games. 

Hopefully, 343 enable players to select their desired game modes in the future, but until then, this method can make leveling up the game’s Battle Pass challenges less tedious.
