Halo Infinite Dev: Next-Gen Xbox Players Shouldn't Use Quick Resume for Now

Halo Infinite players on Xbox Series X|S should avoid using the Quick Resume feature to play its campaign, a 343 Industries community manager said Wednesday.

The newly released Halo Infinite (solo) campaign looks to take the iconic series to new heights, featuring a seamless, semi-open world design. With the Quick Resume feature on Xbox Series X|S, Microsoft similarly aimed to give players a new level of convenience by allowing them to jump back into their games right where they left off.

Due to a recently discovered bug, however, it appears next-gen Xbox Halo Infinite players should avoid counting on the latter of the two features at the moment.

343 Industries Community Manager Brian Jarrard took to Twitter to breakdown the issue Thursday.

"When playing #HaloInfinite campaign you will come across armor lockers that contain cosmetics for your MP Spartan," Jarrard Tweeted. "If you are offline, or disconnected from services — which can occur after Quick Resume — the cosmetics won’t show up in your MP inventory.

"The team is aware and we will eventually have a retroactive fix (you will get the cosmetics you've earned). For now, I recommend not continuing a Quick Resume session and making sure you’re online before venturing into Zeta Halo. Thank you!"

As such, for those on Xbox Series X|S who want to ensure that the cosmetics they earn in the campaign are properly transferred over to their multiplayer inventories, it's best not to rely on Quick Resume in between gaming sessions as it can cause the progress to fail to save properly, at least for now.

To avoid using Quick Resume, and since Halo Infinite auto-saves constantly (when properly connected online), players simply need to exit to the title's main menu, then go to the dashboard and close the app when they're done playing.
