Halo Infinite Lone Wolves: Season 2 launch is set for May 3, 2022.

Folks have been asking about whether there will be any tie-in content coming to Halo Infinite. While it was indeed stated that this will be happening further down the road, we’re able today to let you all know that “Lone Wolves” will feature a series of show related cosmetic items for players to acquire.

We’ll have more to share on that soon!

343 Industries revealed three new modes coming to Halo Infinite Lone Wolves: Season 2 – King of the Hill, Land Grab and Last Spartan Standing.


You know how the game is played, but there’s a little bit of a twist to this one. A neutral hill spawns on the map and two teams battle it out to control the hill and earn points. When a player enters the hill uncontested, it is captured and begins earning 1 point per second into a capture bar. When a team’s capture bar is full, they score 1 point and a new hill spawns somewhere else on the map.


Control those zones, Spartans!

At the start of the match, there are 3 neutral zones around the map. When a player captures a zone, it is locked and gives their team 1 point. When all zones are captured, there is an intermission before 3 new neutral zones spawn. The first team to score 11 points wins.


Objective: Survive.

Last Spartan Standing is based around the Lone Wolves theme of Season 2. In this free-for-all experience, 12 players spawn on Big Team Battle maps with a confined loadout and 5 respawns. Once a player runs out of respawns and can no longer participate, they can either spectate or leave the match without penalty. If a player gets a kill in the match, they can upgrade to a different weapon—something players of “Escalation Slayer” will no doubt be familiar with. The match ends when there is just one Spartan left standing.

Get more insight from Zach Boyce, Halo Infinite Multiplayer Modes and Systems Designer, discussing variations to familiar modes as well as new experiences Halo fans can expect from Season 2.

Introducing Catalyst and Breaker, two new maps coming to Halo Infinite on May 3 with the release of Season 2, Lone Wolves.


Catalyst is a symmetrical arena map nested high up inside of an expansive, tunnel-like Forerunner structure. You’ll find waterfalls pouring down around suspended catwalks, overgrown cathedral walls, and a light bridge connecting the sides of the map together.

Even though the map is something completely new, there’s a ton of DNA from several legacy Forerunner locations in there. Most of that DNA is subtle, but there is quite a lot.

Catalyst was meant to expand the CTF (Capture The Flag) suite, but it proved to be a solid contender for several modes and was actually the first map that the new Land Grab mode was implemented on, which quickly became a favorite amongst the team.


Breaker is a pseudo symmetric BTB map set in a Banished scrapyard where each team’s base is a huge chunk of ship debris, divided by the plasma cutting beam structure in the middle. And yes, that beam is absolutely a dynamic element of the map that presents both opportunities and challenges in gameplay.

Breaker started out as a CTF map as well. The whole idea was to create high-tension flag moments around the laser beam.

This map was designed to embrace base versus base combat where territorial ownership is key to success. We love mixing environmental hazards with the Halo sandbox and Breaker offers an exciting variety of ways to melt your enemies. We’re also big fans of sniper battles, and Breaker’s sightlines and center lane offer risk and reward over key objectives.

The central feature of this map is the middle, which divides the spaces with ramps over a death pit which has given way to some pretty memorable vehicle runs.

That death pit you’re going to try to jump your Warthog over to get your flag carrier back to your base? You’re definitely going to want to time that right because I don’t think insurance is going to cover the damage that laser will do to your Warthog and teammates. Alternatively, grab a Repulsor and time your usage wisely so you can ruin somebody else’s day!
