Halo Infinite has had a troubled first six months, but things are starting to look up now that Season 2 has dropped. Adding a number of maps and a great selection of new modes, Season 2 has a lot going for it. With the Interference Event coming to a close and Last Spartan Standing getting its own permanent playlist, it's time for something else to come along. Something big...
Fractures: Entrenched, the second of the Fractures Event series, features a massive Event Pass with a great selection of cosmetic items. Entrenched follows the first Fracture, Tenrai, which turned out to be pretty darn cool in Season 1. Now that we've got a better picture of what's in the first week of Entrenched, it's time to dive in.
Featuring a ton of different challenges over a number of different weeks, each with a slightly different theme, the Fractures Events are an interesting addition to Halo Infinite's multiplayer offerings. They add to not only your potential choice of great cosmetic items, but also to the variety of the Weekly Challenge pool.
In this article, we are going to address the Fracture: Entrenched-specific weekly challenges, the brand-new Land Grab game mode, and the rewards available through the Event Pass.

What is the Land Grab Game Mode in Halo Infinite's Fracture: Entrenched?
Land Grab is a brand new mode that has been brought to Halo Infinite in Season 2, with Fracture: Entrenched. In Land Grab (the Entrenched version, of course), you are required to control three different areas of the map. Unlike other similar game modes, in Land Grab when you have captured a zone it will disappear, and you will need to head to the reset location.
Each capture will get your team a single point, and the first team to eleven points will win the game. Therefore, it isn't about getting lots of kills per-se, but more using those kills to stop your opponents from grabbing different sections of land and instead capturing the zones for yourself.
That's everything there is to know about Halo Infinite's new Fracture: Entrenched Event, including all of the associated challenges, rewards, and the brand new Land Grab game mode.
