Halo Infinite Cyber Showdown New Game Modes

Like Fractures Tenrai, Cyber Showdown will be coming with its own new game modes that revolve around the event. 343 has been keeping a tight lid on leaking what new game modes are coming up exactly so we aren’t too sure.

We might be receiving more tactical slayer game modes in comparison to previous events.

Halo Infinite Cyber Showdown Rewards

Much like the previous events, Cyber Showdown will reward players who participate in its event challenges. 343 has noted that feedback from players who feel that the progression system for those seeking to earn cosmetic rewards was taking too long and it’s a sentiment that they have acknowledged.

Personally, I can agree to this since earning my Yoroi Samurai Armor took me two days just to get to Ranks 4. Hopefully, Cyber Showdown will make the progress much faster than before as to not frustrate players.

Cyber Showdown will have 10 Ranks, each rank having its own reward for your to redeem. You’ll have your chance to earn limited time cosmetics by participating in King of the Hill, Slayer, Capture The Flag, and Attrition.
