Halo Infinite’s Multiplayer is finally here for players to grind. For those looking to level up and gain XP fast, we have the perfect guide.

With Halo Infinite’s Multiplayer officially here for players to enjoy, there is loads of new content that fans of the franchise might not be too familiar with.

One of these new features is the Halo Infinite Season 1 battle pass, which brings an abundance of rewards. There’s a lot to get through, and those who haven’t had experience with a battle pass before may be confused.

With 100 levels to get through, here’s how you can earn XP fast in Halo Infinite.

How to earn XP fast in Halo Infinite Season 1

XP Boosts and XP Grants

First off, the Battle Pass features XP Boost consumables. These will give you an increase in the percentage of XP you gain over a certain amount of time. Usually, it is double XP for 30 mins.

There are also XP Grants, which are another type of consumable players unlock through tiers in the battle pass. These will give you a certain amount of XP upon use.

To use these consumables, players will have to do the following:

  1. From the main menu, open the Battle Pass menu by pressing R on a keyboard or Y on an Xbox Controller. 
  2. Within the Battle Pass menu, open the Boosts menu by pressing R on a keyboard or Y on an Xbox Controller.  
  3. Select “Double XP Boost” or “XP Grant” and confirm your choice. 

Weekly and Daily Challenges

Probably the best way to rank up fast in Halo Infinite is through completing the weekly and daily challenges. Halo Infinite sets players three weekly challenges. Having said that, if players purchase the Premium battle pass, they will get an extra fourth slot.

The challenges vary from “Kill enemy Spartans in Slayer” to “Complete a Total Control Match.” These challenges will increase in difficulty through three tiers.

You have 7 days to complete these challenges, and once all of them are complete, you will get an “Ultimate Challenge” known as a Capstone Challenge. An example of a Capstone Challenge is to kill 15 enemy Spartans with a headshot in PVP.

This will net you a bunch of XP through the week, and if you’re also completing the daily challenges each day you hop on, you’ll storm through the battle pass.


These are the best ways to do it, as in the new battle pass rank system for Halo, simply playing the game won’t bag you XP. For more on Halo Infinite, check out our piece on next week’s in-game event.

FIFA 22 Vardy SBC player moments

FIFA 22 players will have a chance to secure a 96-rated Premier League winger via SBC during the Shapeshifters promo. Here’s how to complete the Player Moments Vardy SBC, along with the cheapest solutions.

EA’s follow-up to Team of the Season has been an incredible success with players enjoying everything Shapeshifters has to offer. Players currently have their hands full collecting Summer Swaps Tokens, but you won’t want to miss this Vardy SBC.

EA have listed this SBC as a Shapeshifters Player Moments item which combines the promo’s position change with the celebration of an iconic moment. This Vardy SBC is set to celebrate his performance against Manchester United in the 2014/2015 season.

Here’s how to complete the Player Moments Vardy SBC, along with the cheapest solutions.

Vardy FIFA 22 SBC stats

For starters, Jamie Vardy has never felt like the most dynamic player in FIFA 22, but the 4* skill moves and 5* weak foot upgrade should add to his unpredictability.

Thanks to his LW position change, Vardy is an excellent option for Premier League squads. For most, Shapeshifters Ronaldo, Fantasy FUT Rashford, and TOTS Mane will be out of reach which makes Vardy a great alternative.

Of course, Vardy is known for his pace and prowess in front of goal which explains the 99 Finishing, 99 Positioning, 99 Shot Power, 98 Acceleration, and 97 Sprint Speed.

To complete this SBC, players will need to give up three squads: England, Premier League, and 86-Rated Squad. With a value of around 335,000 coins, Vardy is not as overpriced as previous Premier League SBCs in FIFA 22.

You can check out the cheapest solution below.

England requirements

  • # of players from England: Min 1
  • # of TOTW or TOTS players: Min 1
  • Squad Rating: Min 84
  • Team Chemistry: Min 70

The Player Moments Vardy SBC will be available for one week as it expires on July 5. The three squads shouldn’t set you back too much but you’ll need to expend two TOTS or TOTW players in total.

Vardy is not a meta-defining player at this stage of the game, but he can certainly improve Premier League squads that aren’t utilizing one of the top players in the game like Ronaldo or Mane.

Best H4 Blixen loadout for Warzone Season 4

The Warzone H4 Blixen is a great option in Season 4, especially with our recommended attachments, equipment, and Perks.

Published

Best Warzone H4 Blixen loadout

After being introduced last season, the H4 Blixen remains a strong SMG choice in Warzone Season 4. To make the most of this devastating weapon, check out our best H4 Blixen loadout.

Warzone Season 4 is here, and it’s gone through great lengths to shake up the CoD battle royale. Raven have introduced a new Rebirth Island-style map called Fortune’s Keep, and even major Perk changes.

Vanguard weapons have been dominating the new season, and the H4 Blixen is no exception. Despite the new Marco 5 SMG coming in strong, the Blixen definitely still holds its own.

This powerful and accurate SMG could easily challenge the close to mid-range meta, but before you drop straight into the action, check out our best H4 Blixen loadout for Warzone Season 4.

Best Warzone H4 Blixen loadout attachments

Warzone / Vanguard Operator with H4 Blixen
  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: Bergstrom 17″ F3
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: Removed Stock
  • Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine: 7.62 Gorenko 54 Round Mags
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
  • Perk 1: Perfectionist
  • Perk 2: Quick

We kick off our best H4 Blixen loadout with the Recoil Booster, as the SMG is relatively slow-firing compared to other guns in its class, so this increases the fire rate and lowers the TTK. Then, we went for the Bergstrom 17″ F3 Barrel, m1941 Hand Stop, and Polymer Grip to increase accuracy in mid-range fights.

Next up we opted for the Removed Stock option for a big boost in movement, ADS, and sprint-to-fire speed, all of which are vital at close range. In terms of Optics, we felt a standard Slate Reflector is a solid choice, but this can be switched for whichever sight you are most comfortable with.

7.62 Gorenko 54 Round Mags are a great choice for the H4 Blixen, as the gun’s laser-like accuracy pairs nicely with the attachment’s boost in headshot damage. Loading up with Lengthened ammo also raises the bullet velocity and lowers the TTK even further.

Finally, we recommend Perfectionist for Perk 1, to offer up one last boost in recoil control, and Quick to make you incredibly mobile in tight-nit situations.

Best Warzone H4 Blixen Perks & Equipment

Warzone Opertaor aiming H4 Blixen
  • Perk 1: Double Time
  • Perk 2: Overkill / Tempered
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Tactical: Stim

Equipping Double Time will increase the duration of Tactical Sprint, allowing you to move across Caldera much faster, making rushing enemy teams a breeze.

The H4 Blixen is an ideal Sniper support weapon, so we recommend running Overkill to bring along a HDR or AX-50. Then, for your second option, run Tempered to help you recover to max health quicker after a gunfight.

Finally, the Amped Perk is a must to let you switch between your two primaries as quickly as possible, so you’re never caught with the wrong weapon for too long.

When it comes to Equipment, Semtex are an easy-to-use lethal that can score quick kills, while Stims offer a useful health boost to get you out of a pinch.

How to unlock H4 Blixen in Warzone

H4 Blixen in Warzone

Warzone players can unlock the H4 Blixen by getting three Slide kills in a single match 15 times.

The easiest way to complete this challenge is by hopping into Vanguard multiplayer and racking up the kills. But if you only play Warzone, a mode like Clash is probably your best bet.

Best alternatives to H4 Blixen in Warzone

If the H4 Blixen isn’t cutting it for you, there are plenty of other meta SMGs that might suit you better.

Both the MP40 and Owen Gun are two of the game’s best Sniper supports, and can both hold their own at mid-range as well.
