Halo Infinite is holding a Winter Contingency event over the holidays

Halo Infinite Winter Contingency

An advent calendar, but with armor pieces and cosmetics

As everyone goes home for the holidays, it looks like you’ll have reason to boot up the Xbox between annual festive traditions. 343 Industries announced the Winter Contingency event for Halo Infinite today: a series of daily gifts just for logging on and playing.

Starting today, Dec. 21, and running through Dec. 30, there will be ten unique Holiday-themed rewards to acquire. Just log in and play a match of Arena or Big Team Battle. And while the rewards roll out in December, the event runs until Jan. 4. So if you miss a day or two, you can get right back on track later on.

It’s essentially an advent calendar, but with Halo cosmetics. And the rewards look pretty fun, including some festive peppermint colors and emblems.

It’ll help tide you over until the Fracture: Tenrai event re-opens in the new year with its new progression. And with those new playlists adding in Slayer, SWAT, Fiesta, and FFA-specific modes, it’ll be easy to hop in for a quick match of Fiesta and snatch a festive cosmetic in the process.

Just make sure you set a reminder or something, because while there are a few days of leniency, the Halo Infinite Winter Contingency event only runs through Jan. 4, 2022.
