Original story [Sat 15th Jan, 2022 03:30 GMT]: There's a new free event coming to Halo Infinite multiplayer next week called 'Cyber Showdown'. It kicks off on 18th January, but nothing else has been officially revealed about it just yet.
While 343 hasn't shared much, dataminers appear to have already uncovered what will be on offer, and players will once again have to complete key challenges in order to unlock these items.
The event is expected to run up until January 31st, which will then be followed by the Fracture: Tenrai event. So you should have enough time to unlock the Cyber Showdown rewards.
