How to Buy Halo Infinite Shop Credits
You’ll first need to buy some Halo Infinite Credits from the Microsoft Store or Steam if you want to purchase anything from the Halo Infinite Shop. Because these Credits are a premium currency, you’ll have to pay for them with real money.
For Halo Infinite players on Steam, If you have money in your Steam wallet, you can buy a battle pass or buy credits in the shop in-game. They will also appear in-game and in your Steam inventory.
Make sure purchasing is enabled in both the general Steam settings and the Halo: Infinite preferences. You can shift+tab to open the overlay. When you click buy credits and it asks to charge your current Xbox Live account, just click ok, then it will redirect to steam automatically.
Don’t worry, no matter how many credits you buy in Halo Infinite, no one gets an advantage or performance boost in the game as these Credits are only good in the Shop and only for cosmetic items.

Is the Cat Ears Helmet part of the Halo Infinite Battle Pass Rewards?
The Halo Infinite battle pass does not unlock the Cat Ears Helmet attachment for free, unfortunately. But as a consolation, if you buy the bundle, you’ll also get access to these other fun cosmetics.
All of Halo Infinite’s accessories are available through the armor hall. However, if you’re looking for a bit of extra protection, these might not be the best option.
Again, Purrfect Audio is only a cosmetic item that can only be obtained by purchasing the entire bundle from the in-game store. Although there are no cat ears in Halo Infinite’s new Winter Contingency holiday event, players can still participate and earn free rewards by completing daily challenges.
Battle Pass rewards can be earned by ranking up the battle pass for the Winter Contingency event’s battle pass, which ends on January 3, 2022.

Halo Infinite players can expect more seasonal challenges as the new year draws closer. If players are unable to obtain the cat ears cosmetic item, they will still have access to a plethora of other fun cosmetics.
