Halo Infinite's Winter Contingency event has officially launched and it features holiday-themed rewards for players to unwrap each day.
The "in-game Halo advent calendar" is rolling out at just the right moment, as the days are quite literally numbered on everyone's traditional Christmas calendars. Halo's virtual alternative will offer an exciting boost to those final days, with daily rewards up for grabs from December 21 through to December 30, per Halo Waypoint.
There are 10 unique Holiday-themed rewards to collect in total, which can be unlocked by jumping into Halo Infinite's free-to-play multiplayer and completing a match of Arena or Big Team Battle. The daily treats include festive "Peppermint Laughter" coatings for your armor and weapons, along with new shoulder pieces, emblems, and more.
The rewards will unlock over time, meaning they will not all be available on day one. According to this Reddit post, the first match each day will award one tier in the Winter Contingency pass, so players must log in to play at least one game per day for 10 out of the 14 days that the event is running, in order to secure the items and complete the pass.
Players will then have up until the morning of January 4, 2022, to catch up on any items they may have missed during their deck the halls brawls in December. Fortunately for you, we have a full campaign walkthrough, collectible locations, an interactive map, and a multiplayer guide to help you navigate the battlefield, whether you're donning peppermint-colored gear or not.
