Halo Infinite recently hit the ground running with their Fractures: Tenrai event that helped players unlock some cool samurai-style armor. Now, a dataminer may have uncovered the armor players can earn in an upcoming event for February 2022.
The dataminer in question goes by @_FireMonkey on Twitter. And as an early Christmas present, he revealed what may be in store for Halo Infinite players in a little over two months.
What can players expect from this event? It looks like you can earn the following rewards:
- Claw Patrol Spartan Pose
- Scorpion Punch Amor Coating
- Mark V Zeta Helmet
- UA/Mauros Helmet Attachment
Of course, you can expect the usual assortment of challenge swap tokens and XP boosts. Hopefully, there will be more surprises in store for players. The dataminer gave us 10 tiers of awards, but the Fractures: Tenrai event had 30 tiers. Time will tell whether the dataminer’s information is incomplete or whether this signals the shift to smaller events.
Interestingly, @_FireMonkey provided some additional insight into this event. According to him, it is called Tactical Ops because it will feature the following game modes:
- Tactical: Slayer Commandos
- Tactical: Slayer Sidekicks
- Tactical: Slayer Stalkers
- Tactical: Slayer Manglers
Given the “tactical” name, some players think this event will bring SWAT gameplay to Halo Infinite. However, this mode of rolling out different game modes has been divisive.
As of this writing, players cannot choose to play specific game modes (such as only playing Slayer games or only playing Skirmish games). This is a far cry from being able to play the exact modes you want in The Master Chief Collection, and it may indicate 343 isn’t above limiting fan-favorite modes like SWAT to special events to keep players coming back for more.
