Halo Infinite Winter Contingency Event

Winter Contingency is here, but unlike Fracture: Tenrai before it, the Halo Christmas event doesn't bring too much new to the multiplayer game. What it lacks in new modes, though, it makes up for with plenty of rewards.

Winter Contingency Start Time

Winter Contingency is live now and runs through 4 January 2021. There are only 10 days of rewards, though. The remaining days are buffers where you can pick up rewards you might have missed before.

Halo Infinite Contingency Event Challenges

Winter Contingency challenges are handled a bit differently. The menu says you have event challenges, but earning rewards only requires you to play either a Quick Play or Big Team Battle match once per day. You can only earn one reward per day, so there's no grinding involved - unlike with the Tenrai event.
