Halo Infinite Tactical Ops and Cyber Showdown Event Rewards Leak
For those who are curious about the future of Halo Infinite events and the exclusive cosmetics they contain. The list of available rewards for both Cyber Showdown and Tactical Ops has been leaked on the internet. Though a list of probable unlocks is provided, there isn’t much information about what playlists will be included with those two events, or whether or not those playlists will be exclusive. This is significant since the Fiesta playlist was an important aspect of the Fracture Tenrai event, dictating the mode in which players had to grind in order to win event-related goodies.
Halo Infinite’s multiplayer mode is gaining traction on a variety of platforms, including Xbox and Steam. Though the game’s reviews have remained favorable, praise has been heaped on the inspiration it garnered from classic Halo from Bungie’s heyday. As a result of aggressive microtransactions and slow-to-unlock cosmetics included within the game’s battle pass, the developer 343 Industries is grappling with complaints concerning the game’s multiplayer section.
All of this is due to the multiplayer element of the game being free-to-play. Aside from responding to and dealing with player feedback, the Dev team’s methods for maintaining player interest revolve around the time-limited event that they have planned for Season 1, in which players can earn exclusive emblems, armor colors, and new paints for their weapons throughout the event’s duration.
However, as can be seen, leakers have already obtained the list of possible awards for two future Halo Infinite events. The two are Cyber Showdown and Tactical Ops, as indicated above. In comparison to Fracture: Tenrai, both events are only two weeks long and do not include any further reruns. However, as a result, they have a far narrower list of available awards, with only 10 tiers instead of 30. Cyber Showdown is said to have its own playlist, featuring King of the Hill (a return mode from previous Halo games), One Flag, Capture the Flag, and Slayer in rotation. But there was no mention of a Tactical Ops playlist in particular.
According to the framework of Fracture: Tenrai, increasing the ranks of both events’ list of rewards will include fulfilling certain event tasks during the event’s lifetime while playing on the specified playlists released concurrently with the event. Given the number of obstacles mentioned by players when it comes to finishing the Ultimate challenge for Fracture: Tenrai, it’s conceivable that obtaining all of the rewards won’t be easy for everyone.
Halo Infinite’s multiplayer mode is currently available on PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. While the Campaign mode is set to be released on December 8th.
