Having issues with the latest major update for Halo Infinite on Steam Deck or Linux desktop? Valve has already released a Proton Hotfix update to sort it.

The fix is available in "Proton Hotfix" which is a completely separate version of Proton compared with the default Proton 7 and even Proton Experimental. So if you have it set to Proton Experimental currently, which is where Valve initially got it working, you need to unset it (remove the tick in the compatibility menu) and so it will pick up the Proton Hotfix on Steam Deck. For desktop Linux, you will need to force it to Proton Hotfix manually. If you have any trouble, search for Proton Hotfix in your Steam Library to make sure it is installed and updated.

I tested Proton Hotfix on Steam Deck and my Fedora Linux desktop — works for both. Great job Valve and CodeWeavers on the compatibility fix there so quickly.

Some of the big stuff that's new in Halo Infinite includes:

  • Network Co-Op Campaign
  • Campaign Mission Replay
  • New Campaign Achievements
  • Forge Mode (Beta)
  • Progression Improvements
  • Winter Update Battle Pass
  • Upcoming Events
  • New Multiplayer Mode: Covert One-Flag
  • New Multiplayer Maps
  • Matchmaking Improvements

I remember having that same issue months ago, memory is fuzzy -- can you work-around it by using the Steam Friends list and right click your friend and try "Join Game" bypassing the game method? Are you both using EAC on or EAC off?

Only just heard of it recently. Fedora is such a solid pick, so I would probably just take whatever nifty things GE is doing with Nebara and add it to Fedora. :)
