With the end of Halo Infinite Season 2 drawing close, here’s everything you need to know about Season 3, including the release date, new weapon, a custom games browser, and more.

When the Season 2 update of Halo Infinite arrived, it brought new content for players to explore, such as in-game events, maps, game modes, and a 100-tier Battle Pass with 180 rewards.

Now, the Halo community is looking ahead to the next major content drop for the game in Season 3. We’ll go over everything that has been revealed about the update by the developers.

Halo Infinite Season 3 roadmap

Halo Infinite Season 3 release date

On September 1, the Halo Infinite developers confirmed in a Halo Waypoint blog post that the Season 3 update will go live on Tuesday, March 7, 2023, and is set to continue until Tuesday, June 27, 2023.

Of course, these dates could change if there are any unexpected developments. The new ‘Echoes Within’ season will bring a plethora of new content that the developers have detailed in the Season 3 roadmap.

Halo Infinite Season 3 new weapon: M392 Bandit

The Season 3 update will bring a new weapon to Halo Infinite in the form of the M392 Bandit. According to 343 Industries, this weapon has similarities to the DMR in Halo: Reach but is more effective in close-range combat.

The Halo Infinite version of the weapon has a few differences compared to the one in Reach, including the fact that it has no scope. Players will be able to use this weapon to cause some serious pain in Season 3.

Halo Infinite Season 3 custom games browser

In August, a leaked image showed a custom games browser option in the Halo Infinite menu community tab. This led to speculation that this feature is on its way, and the devs have confirmed its arrival in Season 3.

The custom games browser first appeared in 2007’s Halo 3 where players could use it with the Forge map editor. Doing so would allow them to make changes like faster movement, higher jumps, and more.

Halo Infinite Season 3 Shroud Screen equipment

Halo Infinite Season 3 will also feature a new Shroud Screen ability that conceals you in a high-tech smokescreen. This will keep you hidden from the enemy’s radar, even when firing your weapon.

However, this piece of equipment doesn’t prevent your enemies from damaging you altogether. You’ll need to be careful and keep an eye out for any opponents that spot you.

More Halo Infinite Season 3 content

The developers also confirmed the arrival of new Arena and Big Team Battle maps, VIP and Escalation game modes, Forge beta updates, and a Battle Pass with 100 tiers to progress through.

At the time of writing, they haven’t provided more details about these, but we’ll learn more as the Halo Infinite Season 3 release date draws near. We’ll be sure to update you as soon as more information is available.
