According to a data leak from Halo Infinite Leaks & News on Twitter, the Cyber Showdown event is set to include a new list of cosmetic items, some of which were teased in the official Halo Infinite | Cyber Showdown Teaser Trailer. The teaser showed a neon pink spiked helmet cosmetic and a rave-like visor cover, which fits in with the event's neon "cyber" aesthetic. Players can expect new armor cosmetics, weapon skins, weapon charms, backdrops, and AI colors included in this event.

The event is also set to debut new game modes in Halo Infinite Multiplayer. Game modes called "King of the Hill" and "Attrition" are expected, the latter of which is assumed to be the answer to the elusive "Medic" achievement in Halo Infinite.
