Winter Contingency is now over in Halo Infinite multiplayer, and to fill the void, 343 has reintroduced the Fracture: Tenrai event.
Once again, this is a completely free and limited-time event that returns multiple times over a season - offering unique cosmetics and rewards across 30 tiers. Tenrai is themed around the Yoroi Armor Core - a Samurai-like Spartan and is currently in week two of six.
343 has also introduced some changes based on feedback from the community and its own internal goals:
Where players were only able to progress 7 tiers of their Event Pass in the week of the first Fractures: Tenrai event (November 23-30, 2021), players can now progress 10 tiers per week. By design, you will still have to participate in multiple weeks to obtain everything in the Tenrai Event Pass, but we hope this extra buffer will help expedite progression for highly engaged players.
We recognize the frustration that many players felt where they would have to work through multiple non-Event related Challenges or burn through Challenge Swaps in order to get an Event Challenge to show up in rotation. We felt this too and have made adjustments to ensure that players are always making progress on at least one Event Challenge as well (provided you have active Event Challenges remaining for the week). What this means is that Event Challenges have been tuned to appear in your Challenge rotation sooner and they will have a higher weekly cap (originally 7, now 10).
Further, we also agreed with feedback around the actual content of the Event Pass regarding the amount of Challenge Swaps and XP Grants that made levelling up feel less rewarding. The great thing about these events are the cosmetics, that’s what everybody’s excited about and wants to pursue, so we’ve replaced all XP and Challenge Boosts above Tier 10 onwards with cosmetic items. That’s a total of 11 new cosmetic items that will be available completely free.
Content that was originally slated to be featured as premium offerings in the store for the remaining weeks of this event has now been added to the core free event pass. Please note that no content changes were made from the first week of Fracture: Tenrai – these changes only apply to week two onwards. Any premium store purchases made during week one will remain exclusive to the week one store – they are not being added to the Event Pass.
We hope that these changes are a strong first step towards providing greater value, a greater sense of reward, and more reason for our players to invest their time in this Event Pass. As always, we greatly appreciate your feedback and support as we continue to evolve the Halo Infinite multiplayer experience!
Here's how the reward track now looks:
Additional featured Tenrai customisation items will also be available in the Shop during this event.
