The primacy of humanity has ended. The age of the Unggoy, of true Grunty greatness, has arrived, heralded by the launch of The Yappening II—sponsored by Glibnub!

This new Operation brings the bountiful boons of new Grunt-themed customization rewards, a new map created in Halo Infinite’s Forge, the Gruntpocalypse playlist, and more.


“Y’know, you demons could actually do a big learn from the Unggoy! One of the things you gotta do better at is lookin’ good. So Yapyap has personally made some cool new armor just for you. Only thing is, I dropped it in this acid pool so, uh... you’re gonna have to jump in there and fish it out.”

The Yappening II Operation Pass features 20 tiers of free customization rewards that will turn your seven-foot-tall super-soldier into a god among Grunts.

Progress your Operation Pass with Match XP and Challenge completions, and unlock new armor, coatings, weapon charms, emblems and nameplates, and visors to Gruntify your customization.

Additional premium options for the Operation Pass include:

  • 500 credits will make the Operation Pass durable (it will not expire), offers bonus XP during the Operation’s live window, an extra Challenge slot while your pass is equipped, and comes with an exclusive customization item.
  • 2,000 credits instantly unlocks all 20 tiers of the Operation Pass at purchase and includes the exclusive bonus customization item.

The bonus item in the Premium Operation Pass for The Yappening II is Glibnub’s Golden Guns.

NOTE: Glibnub has sent a missive regarding any humans who point out that the coloration of these weapon coatings “looks more bronze or orangey to me” will have their Grunt privileges revoked and must spend an hour in the acid pits to understand the error of their ways.


“You ever notice that we do a lotta shootin’ in refineries, factories, and in places with big crates? Why can’t the humans at least make the crates more fun—make ‘em round instead of square. Imagine a whole buncha humans runnin' around to stop their crates gettin’ away! Perfect for Unggoy target practice!”

Set in an abandoned mineral refinery within the vast deserts of Zeta Halo, Corrosion is a new Arena map created in Halo Infinite’s Forge.

Watch your step during on-foot skirmishes, as not even Mjolnir armor will be able to protect you for long if you venture into the boiling green pits of acid around this site.

Corrosion will arrive in-game later* this Operation with a bespoke 24/7 Playlist to let you splash around and get your feet wet (at your own peril) for Glibnub’s amusement.

*Timing revised April 03


“Four of you against a thousand of us? Surely we gotta win this time!”

Along with The Yappening II, Firefight: King of the Hill is evolving into its ultimate form: Gruntpocalypse!

For the next two weeks (from April 3-16), it’s all Grunts all the time. Skulls are guaranteed every round, and there’s also a Fiesta version that features random loadouts with each spawn—so get ready to jump into the Gruntpocalypse playlist tomorrow and face the mightiest bravest most numerically superior army in the galaxy.

Glibnub has been instructed to shower you with Grunty gifts for your display of loyalty to the great Yapyap and celebrate your completion of The Yappening II with a new Halo Gear Reward!

Similar to the pins offered back during Season 3, the limited-edition Yappening pin is accompanied by additional patches for the Spirit of Fire and Cyber Showdown III Operations.

Players that complete any one of the three Operation Passes for Spirit of Fire, Cyber Showdown III, or The Yappening II will earn access to the reward. Qualifying players will automatically receive a code in their Waypoint notifications.
