Halo Infinite Winter Contingency is an event going live Tuesday Dec. 21.

The winter event was announced with a teaser during 343 Industries' Holiday 2021 Community Stream.

The event will be similar to a previous Halo Infinite event, Tenrai, where players were able to complete challenges and receive in-game cosmetics. But where Tenrai required specific challenges to be completed, Winter Contingency will only require playing a single game each day to unlock that day's reward. The holiday event is described as an advent calendar for Halo to reward players.

"It's all daily challenges, so no one gonna have to grind your weekly challenges. Just log in and play," stated Jerry Hook, head of design at 343 Industries.
