Halo Infinite developer 343 Industries has officially announced Announced “The Yappening”, a new event coming to the game next week on September 6, 2022. Data miners previously leaked The Yappening, but we weren’t sure if the event was actually legit or not. Now, however, we know for sure.
The Yappening, like other Halo Infinite events, will be free to all players. It’s currently unclear what kind of content it will include, but based on previous Halo Wars 2 Yappening events and Halo: The Master Chief Collection, we’re hoping there will be a dedicated Yappening playlist with a variety of silly game modes. The short comic used to reveal the event also hints that players will be able to earn rewards such as a metal Mohican helmet accessory, armor liners, a “Captain-Maker Pose”, a new visor color, and an amulet. banana weapon for completing challenges and progressing through a free Event Pass.

The Yappening is themed after Yapyap the Destroyer, a powerful and hilarious Grunt leader who was originally introduced in 2018’s Halo Wars 2. In both the Halo Wars 2 and Halo: The Master Chief Collection versions of The Yappening, Yapyap “gained access to 343 Industries’ and attempted to cause chaos by adding their own custom playlist and manipulating the game’s UI in comical ways. This is what we hope will happen in the Halo Infinite version of The Yappening as well, although the developers may also surprise us with some additional types of chaos.
We don’t yet know how long The Yappening event will last in Halo Infinite, but if we had to guess, we’d say you can expect it to stick around for a week or two. This is the standard length for Halo Infinite Season 2 events, and there’s no reason to believe The Yappening will buck that trend.
Halo Infinite is out now on Xbox and PC. Despite some of its problems, it is one of the best xbox shooters on the market right now for fans of arena-style FPS combat, and since multiplayer is free to play, there’s no barrier to entry. The campaign is also fantastic, featuring stimulating gameplay and an excellent story.
