What you need to know

  • The latest wave of Halo Infinite Xbox Game Pass Ultimate perks include a new Battle Rifle skin.
  • The skin is sleek, featuring a black finish with sharp green accents.
  • A Challenge Swap and Double XP consumable are also included.

343 Industries has announced that the latest wave of Halo Infinite's monthly Xbox Game Pass Ultimate bonuses are now available to all players with an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription. The main perk is the "Pass Tense" coating for the Battle Rifle that gives the gun a sleek black appearance accented by a vibrant green stripe along the length of the weapon (parts of the weapon's scope are green, too). Players will also receive a Challenge Swap and Double XP consumable as well — the former allows players to switch one of their Weekly Challenges for a new one if they'd prefer, while the latter doubles all XP gained from completing challenges or finishing matches for an hour after use.

Currently, being a subscriber to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is the only way to obtain these perks. The subscription costs $15/month, making it considerably more expensive than a standard Xbox Game Pass membership. However, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate does include some big benefits, including access to Game Pass for PC as well as access to Xbox Cloud Gaming, which is Microsoft's rapidly growing game streaming service.

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members can redeem their Halo Infinite multiplayer perks in a variety of ways. If you're using your Xbox console to get them, you'll find your rewards in the Game Pass section of the Xbox interface. Alternatively, you can also redeem your perks on the Xbox Game Pass mobile app by selecting the Perks tab on your profile page. Perks are redeemable through the Xbox app on Windows PCs, too; they can be found in the Game Pass tab.

Halo Infinite's multiplayer is free to play and is available on Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One consoles, and Windows PCs. It's a ton of fun, and paired with the Halo Infinite campaign, it's easily one of the best Xbox games available right now.
