Halo Infinite multiplayer’s Fracture: Tenrai event returns today, so Spartans once again have a chance to earn the samurai-themed Yoroi Armor Core and its many add-ons. Following player feedback, the event looks a little different this time, as developer 343 Industries has addressed some of the early criticisms with more progression changes.
On Halo Waypoint, 343 detailed the event’s new adjustments. The event is still designed to be completed throughout Season 1, rather than all at once, but players can now earn 10 rewards per week whereas before rewards capped out at 7.
And the biggest change is the event now guarantees that players always have at least one event-specific challenge in their challenge rotation, opposed to the event’s first run-through, where there was no such guarantee.
When the event originally appeared in November, players had issues with Fracture: Tenrai’s gated progression and padded event pass, mostly over how someone could play for hours without seeing a single event-related challenge appear in your rotation.
343 also added 11 new cosmetic items to the event, replacing the XP and Challenge Boosts that were originally available in the event pass. 343 says it hopes these changes give players more reason to invest time into the event. The Fracture: Tenrai will last from today until January 11, and will keep returning periodically throughout the remainder of the season.
Battle Pass adjustments have become commonplace for Infinite’s multiplayer since it dropped back in November. Most recently, 343 added a collection of new challenges for players to complete across its newly-added suite of Slayer playlists. And, while it’s still not available yet, 343 has said it’s still working on adding performance-based XP to reward players who have a great match.

While fans are trying to figure out what the scene could mean for Infinite’s story, the plot for the future of Halo is changing hands, as Infinite’s Lead Narrative Designer just left 343 in favor of Riot Games.
