As spotted by Exporter, Reddit user DanTheBloke posted video evidence of Halo Infinite working on the Steam Deck, followed by simple instructions on how to get it working for yourself. It'll require using the preview build of SteamOS and installing a third-party program. The instructions are as follows:

  • Open Steam and go to the Systems tab in Settings. Change the system update channel to the preview build.

  • Install Proton GE. DanTheBloke recommends this guide from Rock Paper Shotgun.

  • Launch Infinite, go to Settings, then Properties, and finally Compatibility. Set it to use the latest version of Proton GE: GE-Proton7-26.

  • Exit Infinite and go to desktop mode. Rename the videos folder or delete the Halo Infinite folder's contents.

Infinite should be playable on your Deck if you follow those steps completely. Playing Halo Infinite on Steam Deck comes with a few hitches. DanTheBloke noted some jank and audio clipping. There's also the standard risk of unauthorized modification, including potential platform bans or unforeseen issues. 343, Valve, and/or Microsoft have not released any statements on this workaround for Halo Infinite, so be careful and modify your Steam Deck at your own risk and expense.

The Steam Deck verification program currently marks Halo Infinite as unsupported, but also notes that Valve is working on adding support for the game. Halo Infinite’s multiplayer received a huge update in May of this year but had a troubled launch. The cooperative campaign is also being tested through a semi-public flight, which ends on August 1.
