Halo Infinite Credits can be purchased from the in-game store, accessible from the game’s main menu. If you’re on the multiplayer menu, you’ll first need to drop back to the main menu where you can swap between the Play, Customize, Community, and Shop tabs at the top of the screen. 

Open the Shop and you’ll see a variety of cosmetics currently available for you to purchase, with your Credits listed in the top right of the screen. To get Credits in Halo, select the Buy Credits button in the bottom left of the screen. On Xbox, you can tap Y to open this menu. On PC, you can press R.

This will open a sidebar listing all the available bundles of credits. Here are all the options available:

  • 500 Credits: $4.99 (£3.99)
  • 1,000 Credits: $9.99 (£7.99)
  • 2,200 Credits: $19.99 (£39.99)
  • 5,600 Credits: $49.99 (£39.99)
  • 11,500 Credits: $99.99 (£79.99)

Currently, the top three tiers of credits offer “bonuses” when you purchase them, adding in extra credits and making them a more efficient use of money if you think you’ll want that much in the long run. That said, only the 10,000 Credit bundle offers a decent bonus when compared to purchasing several smaller packs. It’s not clear if these bonuses are temporary or permanent incentives for buying the bigger packs.

Credits can be used to purchase cosmetic skin sets from the store, like the Zvezda Armor Set shown above. These can apply to your Spartan as well as vehicles like the Warthog. In addition, you can also purchase new emblems, challenge swaps, and booster packs to help you through the battle pass. Given just how many of the battle pass rewards are challenge swaps, however, we wouldn’t recommend purchasing them.

That’s everything you need to know about how to get credits in Halo Infinite. It’s a pretty straightforward system that thankfully isn’t too tough to decipher. Whether you choose to put any money into the system is up to you. For more Halo Infinite content, visit our hub page for the game.
