Halo Infinite features an exclusive armor coating that’s part of a collaboration between Xbox and OPI. Here’s how you can get your hands on the Halo Infinite shiny nail polish armor.

343 Industries added plenty of fun content in Halo Infinite, including some neat cosmetic items. After playing the game for a while, you’ll be able to unlock new armor and even get your hands on a cat ears helmet.

Now, a collaboration between Xbox and popular nail polish brand OPI has brought a new armor coating to the game. It has a shiny layer of purple paint that’s similar to what you’d see on nail polish.

Here’s how you can get the exclusive nail polish armor in Halo Infinite.

If you want to get your hands on this cosmetic item, then you’ll need to buy nail polish products from OPI’s Spring 2022 Collection. Once that’s done, you’ll receive a Halo Infinite code for the armor.

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Spend $20 or more on nail polish products in the OPI Spring 2022 Collection
  2. Send a clear photo of your receipt to the OPI rewards page
  3. Wait for the receipt verification (this can take up to 48 hours)
  4. Once verified, check your email for a code with the Halo Infinite reward
  5. Enter your Xbox code here or on your console

You have until Thursday, March 31 to get this done. The 12 nail polish hues in the Spring 2022 collection are inspired by Xbox, with many of them having names like ‘You Can’t CTRL Me.’

That covers everything you need to know about unlocking the nail polish armor in Halo Infinite. This exclusive cosmetic has a visually appealing look, and we expect to see many other players wearing it in the coming weeks.

Apex Legends devs respond to frustrating glitch that gives Rampage infinite charge

Apex Legends devs are working on a fix for the Rampage unlimited charge glitch, and may punish players who abused it.

Apex Legends player charging the Rampage

Apex Legends devs have finally responded to an annoying glitch that was giving the Rampage and Sentinel unlimited charge, confirming a fix is on the way, and threatening those who use it with a ban.

The Rampage LMG and Sentinel are two of the best weapons in Apex Legends, and with good attachments, these guns can become incredibly powerful in the right hands.

Unfortunately, in early December players found an exploit that allowed both weapons to carry infinite charge, removing the need to scour for Thermite Grenades or Shield Cells to boost their stats. This glitch quickly became popular, with many using it to dominate enemies.

While the devs have already attempted to fix it once, the issue is still happening. Now, Respawn Entertainment have confirmed they are looking into it once again and may punish those who have been exploiting it.

In a tweet on January 4, Respawn Producer Josh Medina confirmed that the team behind Apex Legends were back at work after the Christmas break, and were already working on a fix for this exploit.

This will hopefully mean that a patch to address this isn’t far away, although the developer didn’t give a possible release date.

On top of that, Live Balance Designer John Larson suggested that the team may look to take action against players who used the exploit.

“Infinite charge Rampage and Sentinel go hard, but in a way less fun way,” he tweeted. “While I don’t personally carry a banhammer, I’ll see what I can do…”

With so many players abusing this glitch, especially in Ranked, it may prove difficult to ban players for using it, as you may end up punishing a significant section of the game’s player base.

Regardless, it at least seems like Respawn are determined to fix the glitch, and hopefully, it will arrive in-game soon. In the meantime, make sure you’re using the best Apex Legends characters, and get the best settings for high FPS.

How to complete Halo Infinite Fracture: Tenrai event challenges: Weekly reward

Here’s how to complete all of Halo Infinite’s Fracture: Tenrai event challenges, as well as the Ultimate reward.

Published

Halo Infinite Fracture Tenrai Yoroi Armor

Halo Infinite’s Fracture: Tenrai event has returned, bringing even more samurai-themed cosmetics for your Spartan. These can be unlocked through a set of challenges, so here’s how to complete the Tenrai event challenges and earn the Yoroi Armor Core.

Halo Infinite’s multiplayer was one of the best-received shooters in 2021, with its classic map design, unique weapons, and ranked mode support. However, players were unimpressed with its first event, Fracture: Tenrai, due to the most sought-after rewards being locked behind a paywall.

Fracture: Tenrai has returned in 2022 with an overhauled free event pass bringing more samurai-themed cosmetics and far fewer XP bonuses and Challenge Swaps.

You’ll need to complete a series of challenges to earn these cosmetics as well as the Ultimate reward, so here’s everything you’ll need to do before Week 2 ends on Monday, January 10, 2022.

Halo Infinite Fracture: Tenrai challenges

Halo Infinite Fracture Tenrai event challenges

Halo Infinite’s Fracture: Tenrai challenges are marked by an orange banner on your Challenges list, and it’s only these that will progress the event pass.

Here are all of the Halo Infinite Fracture: Tenrai Week 2 Challenges:

  • Complete Fiesta Matches (2)
  • Earn Assists in Fiesta Matches (10)
  • Earn Assists in Fiesta PvP Matches (20)
  • Kill Enemy Spartans in Fiesta Matches (10)
  • Earn Double Kills in Fiesta (1)
  • Stop Enemy Killing Sprees in Fiesta PvP (5)
  • Win Fiesta Matches (1)
  • Stop an Enemy Killing Spree in Fiesta PvP (1)
  • Earn a Double Kill in Fiesta PvP (1)
  • Kill Enemy Spartans with a Headshot in Fiesta PvP (10)

You’ll need to solely focus on Fiesta if you’re looking to complete the Fracture: Tenrai challenges, as this is the event’s featured mode.

For the most part, how quickly you fly through the challenges is dependant on luck and your own skill. Most will happen naturally but if you pay attention to your challenge list then you’ll be able to focus on a specific goal fly through them quicker.

The only challenge that might prove time-consuming is ending Enemy Killing Sprees, as this is entirely luck-based. But play enough Fiesta and you’ll be sure to finish it before Week 2 ends on Monday, January 10.

This red-tinted visor will only be available during this week, so make sure you complete all of the challenges before they expire.

How many people are playing Halo Infinite? 2022 player count

Halo Infinite’s multiplayer released to critical acclaim in 2021, but how many people are still playing in 2022?

Halo Infinite players in-game

Halo Infinite was one of the most popular game releases in 2021, but how many people are still playing in 2022?

Halo Infinite finally launched in November 2021, six years after the last installment in the legendary FPS franchise. Unsurprisingly, the hype around the game was high and only heightened when the game dropped to widespread acclaim.

With a host of new maps and powerful weapons, there’s plenty for Halo players to sink their teeth into, while Infinite’s ranked mode gives competitors something to aim for.

Despite all of this, Halo Infinite’s player base has been shrinking. This has left fans wondering how many people are actually playing Halo Infinite in 2022.

Halo Infinite 2022 player count

According to SteamCharts, Halo Infinite has seen its player base sliced in half since its release in November 2021. When the game launched, it averaged over 102,000 players in-game at any one time.

Over the last 30 days, the average number of players in-game has dropped to 47,335. The game’s peak players have also dropped from 256,619 to 147,782.

Unfortunately, these numbers only reflect how many people are launching the game through Steam, and don’t include those on Xbox consoles. It’s likely these numbers are higher in reality, but Microsoft haven’t made console numbers available at this time.

While the numbers have dipped fairly dramatically, they are much healthier than Battlefield 2042, which currently averages less than 20,000 players at any one time.

343 Industries will be hoping to see things pick up with the start of the Halo Infinite Fracture: Tenrai event, which includes challenges and rewards.
