Halo Infinite players now have the opportunity to purchase new and customizable merchandise as part of the new Halo gear reward system. The gear can be earned by completing specific in-game tasks.
Players of all games will be used to getting in-game rewards for breaking achievements. Skins, banners, maybe a trophy or two – that’s the usual range.
However, in-game achievements that translate into tangible physical rewards are a rarity. However, 343 just announced a new system for Halo Infinite players that does just that.
The new Halo Gear Rewards system offers players the chance to purchase real-life merch and content from the Halo Gear store. The news was revealed on July 26, with 343 announcing that the first item on offer is the Fracture: Entrenched Tanker Jacket.
They describe the garment as a “high quality jacket” with “embroidered logo patches, beautiful screen-printed Halo art and a personalized removable Gamertag patch.”
The jacket also comes with an additional UNSC patch for a “stealthier option”.
The Fracture: Entrenched Tanker Jacket is the first item to be purchased through the new Halo gear reward system
How To Unlock Halo Infinite Fracture: Entrenched Tanker Jacket For Purchase
First, players must complete the Fracture: Entrenched Event Pass in its entirety by November 1, 2022, in order to purchase the jacket.
Once the event pass is completed, players will need to log in to their Halo Waypoint profile. From there, a unique code must be uploaded to the account within 24 hours of completing the required task.
It’s important to note that you still have to pay for the merch – completing the event pass doesn’t mean you can get your hands on the Halo Infinite rewards for free.
There is a “one code per account” limit for items. For those who qualify, codes for the Tanker Jacket should already “roll out to qualifying players”.
After the code is sent, players can customize their jacket, choose the correct size and then order it.
343 seems to have a lot of new content in the works for the Halo community. Halo Infinite game modes Forge and co-op are coming. Also coming soon is a new novel that tells the story of the events leading up to the main story of Halo Infinite.
The Fracture: Entrenched Tanker Jacket is on sale until November 15, 2022. Those who do buy it can expect it to ship in the first quarter of 2023.
