Halo Infinite’s Fractured Tenrai event is back, with improvements

Fractured Tenrai 1

Definitely worth playing now

End of 2021, Infinite halo presented their first event (Fractured Tenrai) and it was kind of a big mess. The rewards were underwhelming (and contained a bunch of soulless stuff like XP boosts and challenge trades), the challenge system was excruciating, and the event items were sold on the Paid Item Shop. Almost anything that could make the event worse has been implemented. Still, true to their word, 343 brought the Fractured Tenrai event back for “week 2” (January 4, 2022 – January 10, 2022) with some improvements.

The big improvements are:

  • Better XP / Challenge Stream
  • More actual rewards instead of stuff you can find on the regular season pass

As of this week, Event Challenges have ‘higher priority’ which matches my personal experience with week 2 so far. In the past, the challenges that actually advanced the Tenrai pass (indicated by orange flags for fiesta mode) were rarer, to the point where I had to play tons of regular matches (for no Tenrai progress) to get the Tenrai challenges. to arrive.” It completely eliminated the point of having an event and felt predatory to get people to keep playing for a random chance to progress on the Tenrai track. Now the cap for Tenrai challenges is higher (10) and they are more frequent.

The other change concerns cosmetics. In addition to moving the premium (cash shop) items to the actual pass in the future, the reward track is now a bit more engaging, with, you know more event articles in the mix. You can find the full breakdown of 343 industries here and the new track below.

The best part of the event? You can still earn the Armor Core (read: the “Samurai” style main armor base) at level five (out of 30) in the Event Pass. With these changes and the reward / XP bonus, you can basically play just a day or two of the event, unlock the big prize, and then quit. Or go ahead and polish it, now that the Icebeat is over. It’s still not perfect and as engaging as events in other games, but it seems a lot less predatory now as there is real hope to unlock some of these rewards without grinding.

Fractured Tenrai is currently underway with Week 2, which ends January 10. Week 3 will be implemented from February 1, 2022 to February 7, 2022.
