The Halo Infinite Battle Pass lets you earn customizations, vehicles, weapons, and other items as you complete in-game challenges during multiplayer gameplay. Performing challenges will provide you with experience points toward your Battle Pass and help you level up through its tiers.

As per 343, the first among these is “Fracture: Tenrai, featuring a limited-time Event Pass, playlist, and Samurai-themed rewards starting next week.” But is the Halo Infinite Battle Pass worth your cold hard cash?
