What should I report another player for in Halo?
Players who don’t follow the Halo Code of Conduct and Xbox Community Standards can be banned from the game for anywhere from a minute to permanently, depending on the severity of the violation.
The most common reasons for a ban according to these rules include:
- Frequently and repeatedly quitting
- Unsportsmanlike behavior, such as excessive idling, betrayal, or suicide
- Attempted playlist ranking manipulation
- Progression system manipulation
- Network manipulation
- Violating our licensing agreement
- Violating the Xbox Community Standards
Most of the time, a player violates the Code of Conduct purely by mistake. We want our players to have the chance to change their behavior, so the length of a ban is based on the type, frequency, and nature of the violation. In most cases, Custom Games are still available.
If a banned player uses alternate Microsoft accounts to circumvent their ban, that violates the Xbox Community Standards. Consequences include added penalties or ban time but can even result in a ban from the entire Xbox ecosystem.
What happens if I report another player?
Each Enforcement - Report a Player submission is reviewed individually. Our Enforcement Team verifies the claim, views any evidence, and reviews past bans to make sure the penalty is appropriate.
Reporting other players simply to try to get them in trouble when nothing happened is against the Xbox Community Standards. Doing this puts you at risk of being banned yourself.
Types of violation include:
- Unsportsmanlike behavior
- Idling through games
- Habitual quitting
- Dodging matches
- Impersonating a 343 Industries or Microsoft employee on the Xbox network with intent to defraud or cause harm to other players
- Intentionally represent yourself as a player other than yourself to cause drama
- Manipulating the matchmaking, progression system, and/or ranking system
- Filing false reports against other players
- Creating new accounts to circumvent a suspension
