It’s official. Halo Infinite Season 2 is here and it’s bringing in some sweeping changes to the game. So far, we know about bug fixes, new content, and even new narrative magic that 343 Industries is bringing in the new update. We’ve gone out of our way to collect all the details you need to know about Halo Infinite Season 2 down below.

Halo Infinite Season 2 Patch Notes

Halo Infinite Season 2 New Gameplay

Halo Infinite Season 2 launched yesterday, bringing a swathe of changes to the game in numerous different areas. Some of the biggest changes are related to bug fixes. Since the game launched, 343 Industries has been using community support tickets to find and zap numerous bugs, including a bug that caused the Dynamo Granade’s ticking noise to repeat continuously. The Season 2 update also improves stability on both console and PC and addresses some balancing issues found in both campaign and multiplayer, such as nerfing melee damage by 10% in both modes.

Of course, while the bug fixes and rebalances are welcome, the really exciting stuff is the new content. Halo Infinite Season 2 is bringing a brand new 100-tier battle pass with rewards for both free and premium versions of the pass. If you bought the Season 1 premium battle pass and haven’t completed it yet don’t worry, you’ll be able to re-equip the Season 1 pass throughout Season 2 to claim anything you’ve missed.

Halo Infinite Season 2 New Story Content

As mentioned above, the new update will also include brand new narrative content. When you first load the Season 2 menu, a new cutscene will play that shows off the new multiplayer storyline revolving around a captured Banished AI. The cutscene is already available to view online, so you can check it out for yourself below.

Alongside the new story, we’re also getting some new multiplayer game modes. King of the Hill is making a comeback finally, and we can also look forward to Last Spartan Standing, a new mode that pitches 12 players against each other with 5 respawns and restricted loadouts to keep things interesting. Finally, there’s also the new Fracture: Entrenched event coming on May 24 that will add a new event pass with a new armor core for you to unlock throughout season 2.

Halo Infinite Season 2 New Maps

If you thought that there was already enough content in Halo Infinite Season 2, then you’re in for a shock. Another important element of the latest season update is the two new multiplayer maps coming to the game. The first is a Big Team Battle (BTB) map called Breaker that takes place in the Banished ship-breaking yard mentioned in the story cutscene. As you can probably imagine, the map is huge and has many interconnected areas with open and enclosed spaces to move through.

The second map, Catalyst, is an Arena map more aimed at playlists intended for smaller player numbers. Catalyst is set in an old Forerunner structure that has been left abandoned and has been somewhat reclaimed by nature. Both of these maps are already available for free as soon as you update and of into the game, while the premium Battle Pass will run you 1,000 Halo Credits or $9.99 USD/£7.99 GBP in real money. You’ll also be able to pay extra to get a 25-level head start, just like with Season 1’s Battle Pass.
