Halo Infinite Twitch drops are now active and we’ve got you covered with a quick guide on how you can claim these exclusive rewards for yourself.

If you want to stand out from the crowd in Halo Infinite, there are plenty of options when it comes to Spartan customization. Whether it’s campaign rewards, items in the store, or even the odd event.

However, some of the more rare items can’t actually be earned in-game. Instead, you’ll need to rely on Twitch drops to a variety of exclusive Halo Infinite cosmetics.

If you’re new to the Twitch drop system or simply need a refresher, here’s how you can start earning Halo Infinite rewards on Twitch.
