Take a Deep Dive into the Seasonal Storyline of Halo Infinite Season 2 – Lone Wolves – Xbox Wire
This week, Halo Infinite Lone Wolves – Season 2 launched for fans across Xbox, PC and with Xbox Game Pass, and today we’re excited to dive a little deeper into what you can expect from the seasonal storyline in “Lone Wolves.”
“Lone Wolves” is the start of an engaging, multi-season storyline that puts your personal Spartan in the thick of the unfolding action. Season 2 begins with two battle-scarred Spartans arriving at the Avery J Johnson training facility bearing a dangerous prize … and vital information about Banished plans. As Season 2 progresses, you will unlock the next chapter of your Spartan’s story.
Not every Spartan operation benefits from more Mjolnir-shod boots on the ground. Headhunter assassinations, deep reconnaissance, information sanitization, and “off the books” black ops require Spartans with a very particular set of skills and minimal signature in the conflict zone. The recent conflicts have also introduced a new factor: Spartans who find themselves completely cut off from the UNSC, forced to scrounge for ammo, food, and power cells deep behind enemy lines. With luck, they can link up with other survivors, creating ad-hoc packs bound by their Spartan training and indomitable drive to achieve victory in humanity’s darkest hour.
“Lone Wolves” puts your Spartan in the center of all-new storyline in humanity’s war against the Banished. As you discover long-buried secrets, including one of the Banished’s most fiendish innovations, your victories and accomplishments in these pivotal events will pave a new path for a new generation of Spartans, ensuring the pack will endure.
Sigrid Eklund honed her calm and reserved demeanor during her service as a UNSC army Ranger supporting human resistance groups on Covenant-occupied words. As a Spartan, these attributes – as well as Eklunds’ deeply strategic mind – are invaluable assets in the current conflict against the Banished and their rapidly expanding influence.
Before joining the SPARTAN-IV program, Hieu Dinh was a field analyst with the Office of Naval Intelligence’s Section III tasked with capturing and re-purposing Covenant technology. However, these same skills – combined with Dinh’s high tolerance for risk and penchant for improvisation – may have just landed him in his most dangerous plight yet.
As part of the Lone Wolves season, you’ll be able to earn and unlock the items worn by Spartans Eklund and Dinh themselves though the battle pass. Here’s a sneak peek at some of the gear up for grabs!
Spartan Eklund is a quiet professional, adept at both covert surveillance and kinetic strikes. She has adopted the STRIBOG helmet as the core of her loadout, making use of its extensive reconnaissance capabilities to direct precious UNSC combat assets at the right place, at the right time.
Spartan Dinh wears a custom ensemble shaped by brutal close-quarters engagements against Banished boarding parties and extermination teams. His helmet is an ARTAIUS model, co-opted from a small run of prototypes originally intended for a new class of combat exoframe.

But that’s not all.Season 2 of Halo Infinite will also introduce players to a new Fracture armor set that once again puts a unique alternate-universe spin on the Halo universe.
The Entrenched Fracture is a world scoured by super science aether-bombs and alchemically enhanced soldiers. Though its lands are ruined, the Unified Nations Security Confederation fights on in blind obedience to orders from long-dead generals. Their sworn foes, the zealots of the Covenant, survive only as hordes of rad-poisoned mutants bickering over the remnants of their once-proud civilization. Survival on the front lines requires EAGLESTRIKE energized plate, a marvel of war-smithing that protects against both radiation and Covenant plasmatron weaponry.
