Halo Infinite’s Content Update 29 brings with it perhaps the best-looking armor in the Xbox FPS so far – the classic Mjolnir Mark IV armor from Halo Wars. What’s more, with a variety of Halo Wars-themed items in the Spirit of Fire Operation Pass, it’s easy to get caught up in all the nostalgia. However, you don’t want to miss out on these limited-time Halo Infinite Silver Team helmets to recreate the amazing TV series’ Spartans before they’re gone for good.
With CU29 also bringing cross-Core shoulder armor to Halo Infinite at long last, dressing your Spartan for success has never been easier in one of the best FPS games on Xbox. And with all the new Operation items, bundles, and more, you’ve got a lot of new options available to you as well.
Beginning alongside the Spirit of Fire Operation on Tuesday, January 30, 2024, you can unlock exclusive helmets to celebrate the second season of the Halo television series. Beware though, these helmets are Ultimate Rewards from your weekly challenges, meaning you’ve got some grinding before you can grab them – and once they’re gone, they’re gone.
During week one (January 30-February 6), you can get KAI-125’s helmet:
As the final reward of week two (February 6-13), you can earn RIZ-028’s helmet:
Last but by no means least, week four of the event (February 27-March 5) will offer up VANNAK-134’s helmet:
Simply complete all your challenges for each respective week to earn Silver Team’s unique helmets, otherwise, you’ll miss out. Visors for each helmet are also available and will be given as free rewards just for logging into Halo Infinite on the corresponding week.
So, if you’re looking to dress up like your favorite characters from the TV series, you can do just that. Ironically, Master Chief is somewhat off the table as you can’t remove your helmet or armor in-game.
While you’re chipping away at these limited-time challenges for the exclusive rewards, you will also be progressing through the Spirit of Fire Operation Pass, running from January 30 through March 5, 2024. This will unlock various items to customize the legendary Mjolnir Mark IV armor which is unlocked for free as a new Armor Core during CU29.
It’s great to have so many new customization options, though 343 Industries moving on from Halo Infinite Seasons to work on new projects still stings. After all, the significant improvements to the game set Halo Infinite up to be a powerhouse Xbox exclusive in 2024. We can only hope that 343’s next Halo game is a return to ODST to offer a more profound single-player story than Infinite.
