Halo Infinite’s next limited-time event, Cyber Showdown, is now live and we’ve got a full look at everything you need to know from exclusive Challenges and rewards to an end date.

Halo Infinite kicked off with Season 1: Heroes of Reach, which included the game’s first battle pass. This was followed by the Fracture Tenrai event, which gave players the chance to unlock even more exclusive bits and pieces.

Now, 343 Industries has deployed the next one, Cyber Showdown. It has a totally different vibe from previous events. As the name suggests, it revolves around a retro cyberpunk neon-colored aesthetic.

Halo Infinite Attrition game mode explained

A new playlist is now accessible for the duration of the Cyber Showdown event. Attrition marks the latest game mode in Halo Infinite and puts a unique spin on the classic Slayer experience.

Teams have eight shared lives in Attrition. If you run out of these respawns and your team gets wiped one last time, you lose that round.

No, that Spartan isn’t teabagging, he’s reviving a fallen ally.

There is a new way to salvage your efforts, however, as downed teammates can be revived in Attrition.

Attrition is playable across the following maps: Aquarius, Bazaar, Behemoth, Live Fire, Recharge, and Streets.
