Halo Infinite Tenrai Event: What Is The Fracture: Tenrai Event?
The Halo Infinite Tenrai Event is part of 343 Industries' ongoing live service model for the shooter. Titled as Fracture, these limited time events allow armor sets, not typically a part of the Halo universe, to spice up the look of players. Fractures were first introduced in Halo: The Master Chief Collection, and will continue with Halo Infinite.
The first of these Fracture events is the Halo Infinite Tenrai Event, which begun on November 23. It will run for another week until November 19. If you miss the first week of the event, don't worry as it will continue again from January 4, 2022 - January 10, 2022, and then further from February 1, 2022 - February 7, 2022.
343 Industries released a blog post prior to launch that detailed their plans for the Fracture events, specifically the Tenrai Event. It stated: "This event will be available for all players approximately one week per month during Season One, and the event will come and go throughout the season; available for players to make progress. Each time the Fracture returns, your progress will carry over."
The Halo Infinite Yoroi Armor can be earned for free as part of the event. There are other armor parts that can be unlocked during the event and added to the Yoroi armor core, as well as skins, emblems, and XP grants. These unlocks come as part of the Halo Infinite Tenrai event battle pass. There are 30 ranks to work through, and you must complete Tenrai event challenges, with each finished challenge earning you one level. These are found on the challenge screen, and marked by a little orange flag with a star.
