A Halo Infinite player has discovered a glitch that enables local co-op in Halo Infinite’s campaign, months before the feature is planned to be officially released.

In a video posted to Twitter, and reported by Kotaku, user nobleactual posted a few seconds of split-screen multiplayer running in the Halo Infinite campaign. Along with the video, they also explained how you can pull off the glitch as well.

Before you get too excited to try this for yourself, it’s necessary to note there are serious limitations after activating multiplayer. First of all, you can’t progress the campaign’s story or access FOBs when a second player is in the game. And, player two won’t have a HUD, meaning they can’t see weapons, ammo, health, or the radar.

So basically, you’ll just be able to romp around the world with a second player, without progressing anything. Plus, nobleactual says this may put your save data at risk, as they found their saves refused to load after 10 hours of messing around with the glitch.

Still, to see this fun glitch in action, there are a few steps nobleactual pulled off to make it happen. After making sure Infinite is offline, you connect a second controller and sign in to an Xbox account. Then, you start the campaign with your first controller, hit start and then back, and hit start on the second controller to add the player to the fireteam. That’s how some users have been able to enable co-op.

1. Infinite must be offline
2. Connect second controller
3. Sign into an Xbox account
4. Start campaign with controller 1
5. In game, hit start and then back
6. On second controller, hit start to add the second player to the fireteam
7. Halo infinite co-op enabled!

If you’re still waiting for the official update to Infinite that will add campaign multiplayer, 343 plans to add that highly-anticipated feature along with Forge in May 2022 at the earliest. However, you can play online with friends in Halo Infinite’s free-to-play multiplayer, which just got more adjustments to the season 1 battle pass to improve progression
