Halo Reach just dropped on Steam as a part of Halo: The Master Chief Collection with a few notable changes aside from M/KB support, visual overhaul, and more. One of these in-game changes is the introduction of seasons and grinding for Season Points. In this Halo Reach Seasons Guide, we’ll go over everything you need to know about farming Season Points in the game.
Season Points Farming in Halo Reach
Similar to modern titles like Fortnite and Destiny 2, seasons in Halo Reach will give you access to new themes, game modes, cosmetics, featured playlists, and more. As you farm for Season Points, you’ll unlock these items.
Unlocked items will stay with you forever and you’ll have the choice of unlocking items from previous seasons. For doing all this, you’ll need to have Season Points – a lot of them. The following is a quick rundown of what Season Points are and how to earn them:
Earning Season Points
You can think of Season Points in Halo Reach as one of the currencies in the game. You need this currency to unlock seasonal items. But how do you earn Season Points efficiently? Honestly, it’s just playing the game to increase your Global Rank. Everything from participating in multiplayer matches to playing Firefight and completing challenges will increase your Season Rank.

To give you an overview, you’ll earn XP by completing multiplayer matches. The amount of earned XP depends on the match duration and the number of medals earned by you. Medals are further categorized into two types:
The first one is performance-based medals, which are earned by long killstreaks, assassinations, and playing the objective. The other type of medal comes from assists, playing around objectives, and watching your teammates’ back. Each time you rank up, you’ll earn a Season Point.
At any given time, you can check the top-right of your screen to see your current rank, next to your nametag. Those of you who’ve played Destiny 2 after Shadowkeep will immediately grasp how it all works. It’s all very simple, to be honest.
