How to view your Halo 4 CSR Rank on the Xbox

csr

Hi there, H3AsiiM made a video to show you all how to check your CSR (Competitive Skill Rank) in Halo 4 via the Xbox’s HaloWaypoint App. This is for all players who don’t have a smart phone or a computer next to their gaming console. Unfortunately in order to check your CSR via the Xbox you must exit the game, where as other devices that support HaloWaypoint App (smartphones and computers) don’t require this. The CSR system just went live as of April 8th and you can find more details here.

The post indicates this playlist will feature heavily modified and altered versions of the following gametypes.

Halo 4 CSR Visibility Details – 343 Statement

After much scrutiny and community outrage by a majority of Halo fans after the news in this weeks Halo Waypoint Bulletin (you can read here), bs angel, answered the hot topic question in the Halo Waypoint forums whether or not the CSR, Competitive Skill Rank, in Halo 4 would be visible in-game; similar to Halo 3.

She replied on behalf of 343 and stated that the “True Skill Rank” or CSR would not be visible in game, but instead visible on Halo Waypoint via the website and mobile apps. She had the design team make a mock-up player profile predicting the possible final product when the CSR rank will be released in April 2013.

You can read her statement here.

**Please note this is NOT the final product.
