What is the new Career rank system in Halo Infinite?
Launching on June 20, 343 Studios is introducing a brand new progression system to Halo Infinite. Known as "Career Rank", players will earn a military-style badge that can be leveled up the more they play Halo Infinite. These will be displayed wherever you can see your Spartan with the Career Rank badge being displayed next to your player name and emblem.
As seen in the image above, there has been a heavy change to the way the ranking system will work in Halo Infinite. There is still your standard Bronze to Onyx ranks, but now players will have to make their way through a much larger ranking system to move up to the next tier. In an article shared by Halo Waypoint, the ranks are broken into fifteen military-style ranks.
To progress, players much go through three smaller increments known as "grades". An example is if a player is in Bronze and is starting at Cadet, they must go through Bronze Cadet 1 to 3 in order to rank up to Bronze Private 1.
