How To Get Yoroi Armor In Halo Infinite - Fracture: Tenrai Event Rewards, Start Time, More Details

The sought-after Yoroi armor is now up for grabs.


The first major Halo Infinite multiplayer event, Fracture: Tenrai, is here, and if you play it right, you'll be able to unlock the first-ever event-exclusive Halo Infinite armor core for your Spartan, the Yoroi armor. It will be only the third armor core in the game, and it will immediately make you stand out from all other players.

This special limited-time armor is designed to resemble a samurai's battle armor. It also serves to hint at the standout cosmetics that are to come in the years ahead for Halo Infinite as 343 makes its first push into the free-to-play multiplayer space which tends to be dominated by a rotating locker of cosmetic items for purchase or earning. Here's everything you need to know about the Fracture: Tenrai event and how to unlock the Yoroi armor core.

When is the Halo Infinite Fracture: Tenrai event?

The first iteration of Fracture: Tenrai began on November 23, and ends one week later on November 30. Tuesdays look set to be the content update refresh days going forward in Halo Infinite and it all starts with Fracture: Tenrai.

Now that the event has begun, you'll be able to unlock event-exclusive rewards while the event is live. Fracture: Tenrai includes its own totally free event pass complete with unique rewards you can't get in the standard Halo Infinite battle pass, though 343 has stated that you’ll have more than just this first event week to earn the Yoroi armor and other cosmetics, signaling that the event will reappear a la Destiny's Iron Banner, asking players to rejoin the event across several weeks in Season 1. That also seems to suit the seasonal battle pass’ way of never expiring, as 343 looks to adjust the way these commonplace live-service systems behave in its first free-to-play game.

Fracture: Tenrai event pass and rewards

The completely free Fracture: Tenrai event pass includes 30 tiers of exclusive cosmetic and consumable rewards, including the coveted Yoroi armor core. On top of that, you'll be able to unlock new colorways, called coatings in Halo Infinite, new visors for your helmet, a new belt that includes a Tanto (Japanese short sword), and more. You can find every Halo Infinite - Fracture: Tenrai event cosmetic and reward here.

How to level up the Fracture: Tenrai event pass

During the event, you'll have additional challenges to complete that you'll be able to see in your challenge menu. On Twitter, a Halo marketing lead clarified that these event challenges will be colored differently in the menu for easy reading, and added that completing these challenges will make progress on both the event pass and the Season 1 battle pass. That's not true in the other direction, however. Completing general Season 1 challenges will only add XP to your battle pass, not the event pass.

Future Halo events will follow the same format: Free event passes will be available to all players, and you'll never be required to purchase the seasonal battle pass to enjoy at least some of its rewards, such as challenge swaps and XP boosts. We'll be adding more details to this page as the event draws near, so keep it here for challenge help and a future Fracture: Tenrai fashion show.
