Yeah frame rate is absolutely garbage. A 3090 should be able to max this game out at 4K and get at minimum 60FPS but I'm getting around 40-50 FPS average. Lowering settings doesn't really do anything for performance either.

mid game, had scoreboard open when I died and when I respawned, the game was running fine, but I was stuck on one frame, unable to see anything else in the game. Running the game on an AMD Ryzen 9 3900X CPU, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080.

My Rig
Operating System: Windows 10 Home 64-bit (10.0, Build 19042)
Processor: AMD Ryzen 7 3700X 8-Core Processor
Memory: 32768MB RAM
DirectX Version: DirectX 12

The issues I found

1: Framerate Issues - No matter what settings I use be it max or minimum, or changing resolution, the game refuses to run at higher than 60fps and constantly hovers around 30-40, even when it IS at 60fps, it does not look or feel that way, it's choppy and this results in gameplay feeling like it's covered in muck.

2: Game crashes at settings menu when attempting to re-bind push-to-talk.

3: There is no option for dedicated fullscreen

4: When signing out and attempting to sign back in, the error of "This account is not allowed to play Halo Infinite", and there is no option to sign back in. Forced to restart the game.

5: When disconnected from servers, there is no way to initiate connection in-game, forced to restart the game to re-connect servers.

6: Field of View settings, mouse and keyboard settings, and key bindings reset to defaults on restart or if the game crashes.

7: Assets fail to load after a match. Missing icons, glitched out textures, missing player model, etc.

8: Unable to use mouse to change selection in customization menu.

9: When changing limb prosthetics, player model doesn't always change to reflect chosen prosthetics.

1. I lost some sound at the start of the game and it sounded hollow.
2. So far not the best optimization, I tried Low through Ultra and there is only a 5 to 10 fps difference.
3. I wish there was full screen not just window borderless or windowed.
4. I love how the bots feel like real players.
5. I sometimes have trouble connecting to servers.
6. Everything seems to load a little slow.
(I realize this is a beta/flight)

I am running Windows 11 and am wondering if anyone was able to install the Tech Preview on Windows 11? I install the game and when I go to launch it I get an error. The error says "Could not load 'CommonEventLoggingLibrary_Release.dll', it may be missing or corrupted."

The game just "crashed/froze" on me. I can still hear the music loading into the match but I am stuck on the black loading screen with the dots at the top left.

Me and my friend have the same issue when we try and change the push to talk key bind it crashes.
Other than that I have been having a great time. As stated above in the other comments the performance isn't the best but I know that will change in time. Thanks for letting us play early!

No matter what settings or resolution i put the game on it cannot seem to surpass 40-45 fps, even with he latest graphics drivers on a AMD XFX 580

there's no exclusive fullscreen, so there's inherent input lag. having to deal with that on top of the poor optimization makes the game close to unplayable. please for the love of god at least add exclusive fullscreen.

Struggling to get good FPS on a Ryzen 9 3900x and RTX 2080Super, 32GB of RAM

Along with this, the game crashes when trying to rebind Push To Talk, and binding "Throw Grenade" to the Scroll Wheel does not change it in Game and I have to use G.

Going well for me so far, 2070, Ryzen 2600x, 16 gb of ram. No crashes so far, fps are high, keep up the good work. Hope to get to try one of the big maps vs some other players down the road. The core gameplay is very good, smooth and satisfying combat.

I am running a RTX 3090, i9 10940x @ 4.8ghz, 64gb RAM(4000mhz), 970 pro SSD on Windows 11 Pro build 22000.100.. My cpu utilization stays very high in game and is hovering around 85-98% and my fps are low with the gpu utilization in the 50s. At 1440p my fps bounces between 55 and 75 and at 4K I am in the high 40s to 60. The quality settings don't seem to make any difference with the framerate or the high cpu usage either. Other than poor optimization, the game is very fun to play! Is anyone else having the terribly high cpu usage in game?

Others have mentioned some of the issues I've run into so far, here are some more:

1. The menu and settings screen will flicker.
2. I had the menu go to a grey screen instead of the nice screen with the spartan.
3. Turning off the spartan chatter doesn't actually turn it off
4. More of a complaint than a technical issue but your Spartan sounds like he was voiced by Sonic. Way too over enthusiastic and kiddy sounding. Also some of the dialogue isn't great. Hearing the spartans say "over yonder!" feels as out of place as much as it feels completely unhelpful.
5. I don't like the enemy outline system to far. Since all enemies are now red instead of their actual team color seeing a red teammate running around feels confusing. Also sometimes the outlines straight up don't show and since damage and shield breaking is also now red it feels far too saturated with red. It's much too hard to tell when you've broken an enemy's shield since they start glowing red from the first shots on them. Can we get the yellow/white glow of shields back?
6. Meleeing feels off. I think this has to do with the enemy spartans not being thrown away from you like they were in previous games combined with the current beat down sound effect.
7. I'm glad there are t-bagging physics :)
8. BR feels and sounds pretty good, but I think its ROF needs to be slightly increased. Shoots a bit slow. I don't mean the interval between bursts being lowered, but the actual burst firing three shots in a faster succession.

That's all I've got for now aside from what everyone else has mentioned. More to come but enjoying it overall so far!

My game is not even opening. It keeps giving me an error that microsoft basic render driver was chosen as a graphics device and that i need to ensure that i'm using a DirectX 12 compatible graphics adapter.

There's only one GPU (which it does support DirectX 12) on my pc and my cpu doesn't come with a integrated gpu, so why is it selecting this driver?

I did installed the latest drivers for my GPU and CPU, i even tried to check if there was another display adapter in the device manager (that was one of the supposed recommended fixes that i found) but nope, could only find my current GPU and everything ( according to my device manager) is up to date.

I also updated windows, and tried to check if older drivers for my gpu would work but still nothing.
