In news that shouldn’t shock anyone, it looks like Halo Infinite weapon skins and weapon charms will be an actual thing! Remember when we posted a story on how a Halo Nerf gun included a “digital asset?” Yep, it seems that’s a weapon skin/charm for the game.
This little nugget of info was confirmed by Reddit user Cizlin who got a code from the Mega Construx Halo Infinite Energy Sword set, and it gave a code for players to redeem at the official Halo site that now accepts the codes that uncloked a weapon charm!
Over on ResetEra, Coolduderedux opened his Mega Construx Halo Infinite Energy Sword, and it came witha “ULC” code for Halo Infinite, and it mentions he got a weapon charm that will be unlocked when the game ships!
Given how almost every multiplayer game features weapon skins and whatnot, this isn’t really surprising. If you factor in that Halo Infinite’s multiplayer will be free-to-play, well, weapon skins and charms will most likely be one of the main sources of revenue for the mode.
Unfortunately though, we don’t know just when will Halo Infinite will be released, as it was pushed from its original holiday 2020 release date to sometime in 2021. Given the delay, that means we might be getting a beta before launch.
