Halo Infinite | Echoes Within Intel
Season 3 of Halo Infinite is here, which means it’s time for another round of Intel!
For those not in the know: Intel is a series of data drops that provides some additional lore and context to some of the narrative elements of each season.
Intel can be found both here on Halo Waypoint and in-game in the message of the day carousel in Halo Infinite. You can catch up on Season 2 Intel and the Winter Update Intel in their omnibus collections.
This blog will be updated over the course of Season 3 with new Intel.
INTEL 1: CURIOSITY & CASUALTY
DATE: [REDACTED], 2553
RE: Operation: INTERIOR EXILE
Initial field reports are in from agents Dinh and Padraig and the initial insertion went about as well as we expected. The lead drop onto [REDACTED] went smoothly enough, but conflicting recon assessments for ingress put all three main squads in a compromised position. Just as we feared, there was enemy activity already at the dormant vessel site; casualty reports indicate that it’s definitely going to take a larger force to drive them off and begin facility construction.
From the looks of things, they should have listened to Dinh from the very beginning—we might want to consider accelerating other avenues to put him in a position to have a greater impact. As far as this particular site goes, I’m putting the final touches on an expanded requisition request to try and secure it while we can. Letting these artifacts fall into enemy hands is not an option.
