How to Play Halo Infinite Split Screen Multiplayer with Friends?


Halo titles have always been local play-friendly and geared towards multiplayer. With the exception of Halo 5, all of them had some form of split screen local multiplayer and even campaign co-op. In this article we’ll be looking at how to set up Halo Infinite on your Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S consoles for split screen multiplayer, so you can compete with your friends right at home on the big gaming projector screen, or join in together and take on the Banished in the campaign when the local co-op feature will be added to Halo Infinite later this year.

And if you want to learn more about Halo Infinite’s graphics modes to ensure the best performance, we have an article about that as well.

2022 Oct update:

343 Industries have decided to abandon local split screen and campaign co-op multiplayer for Halo Infinite, focusing instead on online multiplayer.

The community soon came up with unofficial ways to enable the campaign in co-op, although those could be risky. For now we recommend you do not use unofficial bypasses to enable co-op campaign. Those may cause you to lose save files or even get your Xbox account suspended or banned.

Although there is no official way to do co-op campaign, and split screen isn’t possible at all, this may change in the future.

How Many Players Does Halo Infinite Support?

Due to differences in processing power and development goals by 343 Industries, Xbox One consoles offer two player split screen while current generation Xbox Series X and Series S consoles allow for Halo Infinite four player split screen. That’s perfect if you have more people over, and of course means the newer consoles are an even better fit for low latency 4K HDR gaming projectors with screens in the 120” and bigger range. 

Setting Up Halo Infinite Local Split Screen

The one big catch is that unlike the good old days of Halo and Halo 2, now everyone needs to have a gamertag, which means a Microsoft account. To play split screen, each player needs to be signed in, since guest accounts are not supported in Halo Infinite.

So, the simple process goes like this:


  1. Prepare up to four Xbox One or Xbox Series controllers
  2. Make sure all are synced with your console
  3. Load Halo Infinite
  4. Go to the Multiplayer section
  5. Controller one will already be signed in as the host
  6. Press menu on the second controller, and sign in the second player
  7. Repeat this for controllers three and four as needed

More Tips for Halo Infinite Split Screen

Naturally, the more players you have on one display, the bigger the screen should ideally be. Projectors with their huge image sizes are far better for split screen than monitors or TVs, as you don’t have to crowd near to a smaller display with a bunch of friends. With gaming projectors like the BenQ TK700STi and TK700 you get 120” or more in screen size and sit back in comfort, all while maintaining extremely low total input lag. In 4K 60Hz, that’s just over 16ms, while 1080p 120Hz is as low as 8ms. And that’s handy, because Halo Infinite offers a 120Hz mode on both Xbox Series consoles. This is the mode you want to choose for split screen multiplayer, because it’s responsive and sleek, and maximizes your in-game performance. In the single player campaign, 4K 60Hz with the higher visual settings is preferred, but those aren’t all that important in multiplayer, where swift response counts more than anything else.

If you also want to take Halo Infinite action to your study, then we recommend having a 4K high refresh rate, low latency gaming monitor like the BenQ MOBIUZ EX2710U or EX3210U. But as mentioned above, for split screen enjoyment the bigger the screen, the better. A monitor is great if you’re gaming on your own, but for multiple players nothing beats a massive projected image that’s also fast and detailed.

Have fun with those local multiplayer matches!
