Season 5: Reckoning releases tomorrow and features a deluge of new customization content and updates—and we’re just getting started.
It has been said that one single Flood spore can destroy a species, so just think about how much damage you’re going to do playing as a primordial instrument of parasitic power. China Motorcycle Helmet
The Flood have come to Halo Infinite’s customization.
Embrace the Shaping Sickness and step onto the battlefield as a combat form of unparalleled might, the machine and nerve of a Spartan super-soldier—already a living weapon—reformed and refined into the greatest terror in the galaxy.
In Season 5, you can augment the appearance of your Spartan and your weapons with this dire infestation, as individual armor pieces, armor effects, and Armor and Weapon Kits will be available to earn through the Battle Pass and purchase in the Shop.
Do not be afraid. Peace and salvation have come, so join your voice with our timeless chorus and sing victory everlasting!
Battle Passes and Events are evolving in Season 5 of Halo Infinite.
For those who may have missed our showcase during the 2023 Halo World Championship event, you can take a closer look at the rewards you’ll be unlocking in the video linked below.
Coming in the Season 5: Reckoning Battle Pass is a selection of spooky and scary customization items—from emblems of Unggoy flying on broomsticks and a Banished scythe weapon charm, to some of the Flood-themed armor shown in the section above, and plenty more. Oh, and those gloriously coveted EOD and Security helmets as well!
Like with previous seasons, the Season 5: Reckoning Premium Battle Pass will cost 1,000 credits and it will still include 1,000 credits that can be unlocked—these are split into five reward tiers of 200 credits each.
The Season 5 Premium Battle Pass also includes the Defiled Bulldog weapon model.
Like the Events we have come to know, Operations are totally free activities that will include 20 tiers of earnable, themed rewards. Operations will run for approximately four to six weeks, giving players more time to unlock these rewards.
Unlike previous Events, the way you progress an Operation will be based on Match XP (not Challenges), which you can earn in Matchmaking or Custom Games. Here’s a look at the Operations coming in Season 5...

You’ve been holding out for a Hero—a green knight upon a fiery steed (in this case, undoubtedly a crashing Pelican). He’s gotta be strong and he’s gotta be fast, and he’s gotta be ready to finish the fight!
For those valiant souls who have already attained the rank of Hero, you shall be rewarded. For those of you who are either just embarking on this great journey through their Career Rank or are already underway, this is what you’re working towards...
Players who attain the Hero rank will unlock:
The Master Chief’s iconic GEN3 Mjolnir Mark VI armor from the campaign of Halo Infinite will not feature the 117 engraving, which can instead be filled with the emblem of choice that best represents you.
We are bringing the CE Mark V armor kit to Halo Infinite ahead of Halo CE’s upcoming birthday.
The Master Chief’s iconic Mjolnir Mark V armor from Halo: CE has been lovingly and authentically recreated as an Armor Kit in Halo Infinite, you can find it in shop on November 7. This offer comes with:
Both the Mark V and Infinite Mark VI armor will be available as Armor Kits, which have also been updated and enhanced for Season 5, as they now allow for coating, visor, emblem, and FX customization. That means players have more flexibility to personalize how their Spartan looks if they equip an Armor Kit, rather than being locked to any specific appearance.
In Season 5, we are making further progress on supporting customization flexibility after laying some of the foundational groundwork in Season 4.
You read that right. We have made adjustments to every helmet in Halo Infinite, which means that all 100+ helmets in the game are available on all Armor Cores.
We can’t wait to see what combinations you come up with—here's a gallery of a few we’ve put together!
From Season 5 onwards, all new coatings earned in Battle Passes, as Ultimate Rewards, or purchased in the Shop will be multi-core coatings (this includes coatings that are sold as part of Armor Sets or Weapon Kits). These will be marked with an identifying icon.
In the past, Ultimate Rewards (unlocked by completing all your Weekly Challenges and the Ultimate Challenge) have given individual customization items. This is changing in Season 5, as these will no longer be individual rewards, but bundled.
Oh, and speaking of which, complete all your weekly challenges when they go live tomorrow to unlock your first Ultimate Reward in Season 5: the Brushfire armor coating for all cores.
Secure the Flood super bundle when Season 5 kicks off on October 17 and enhance your Spartan's Mark V [B] armored casket with some horrifying new augmentations...
Corpses shift and offer room for defilement of your weapons with the Defiled SPNKr & S7 Sniper Rifle as well.
Oh, and, if you get the super bundle, you will additionally be granted two timed-exclusive Armor Effects.
This brings us to the end of our look at Season 5’s customization elements, so it’s back to counting down the hours until release!
From the blogs that have been releasing over the course of this week to the previews shown at HaloWC 2023 (and, for some, the hands-on experiences you were able to have at the event), we hope you’re as hyped for launch as we are.
Will you give yourself to the Flood? Are you planning to accelerate to FTL speeds to get that beautiful Infinite Mark VI armor for reaching Hero? Or will you be checking out some new looks with those multi-core helmets? Whatever your plans are, we can’t wait to see you on the battlefield tomorrow!
