‘Halo Infinite’ Says Armor Shown In Season 2 Preview Is In The Battle Pass, With One Exception

Halo Infinite is trying to learn a lesson about setting expectations and trying to avoid replicating an issue they had before the game launched. That would be when they would preview a bunch of armor pieces that would eventually being expensive store items rather than things earned through the Battle Pass or limited-time events like Tenrai: Fracture.

Now, after dropping the Lone Wolves Season 2 trailer yesterday, the Halo Community Manager Ske7ch says everything shown in the preview is part of the battle pass, with one exception. Except we don’t know exactly what the exception is yet.

I have been told that the Elite Skull Shoulder Pad is actually the final reward in the battle pass, and will not be the item sold in the store, so no need to worry about that. But obviously it will take a lot of work to get there.

I’m guessing the shoulder pad in question might be this one, which was featured for a split second in the trailer, but we’ll see:

Beyond that, 343 said he will be working on cross-core armor customization so that all pieces are no longer locked to specific cores and there will be more mixing and matching. We don’t know yet how long that’s going to take, and because of the way the system was designed, 343 says they’re probably going to have to go through this and do it step by step, and not all of them are going to work. I doubt these battle pass items can launch with this new larger system in place, but we’ll have to see I guess.

As always, Halo Infinite seems to be heading in the right direction, but I don’t think the exceptionally long six-month first season did it any favors. It also looks like next season might hold some surprises, as Joe Staten made some…interesting comments based on the trailer.

Is it something like a live dust storm invading a map during gameplay? Or does a hint of some sort of story development come into the game during the season? I guess we’ll find out in a few weeks. Halo season 2 Lone Wolves launches May 3, and we’ve been promised more than just this short trailer before then. I would expect some pretty deep dives in what’s coming up by 343, because they don’t like anything but very, very long blog posts explaining things.
