Halo Infinite’s upcoming Winter Contingency multiplayer event was teased during 343 Industries’ Holiday 2021 Community Stream. In this guide, we’ll run through what we know about the daily challenges and rewards. We’ll update this guide with more details once the Winter Contingency event launches.
Winter Contingency event
The Winter Contingency event draws its name from the second campaign level in 2010’s Halo: Reach.
We know from the teaser shown during the Holiday 2021 Community Stream that the Winter Contingency multiplayer event goes live Dec. 21, 2021 and runs for 10 days — finishing on Dec. 31, 2021. (The teaser is at 33:30 in the stream embedded below, followed by a little more detail.)
The Winter Contingency event promises an “advent calendar” of rewards for completing daily challenges across its 10-day run.
We were shown Halo-Days themed Armor and Weapon Coatings, a couple Armor and Vehicle Emblems, and a Utility pouch. With 10 days of the event, there will presumably be other rewards like Nameplates or Backdrops for your Spartan ID.
