The Eaglestrike core in Halo Infinite.
Survival on the front lines requires EAGLESTRIKE energized plate, a marvel of war-smithing that protects against both radiation and Covenant plasmatron weaponry.[1]

The Eaglestrike is an armor core used by the Unified Nations Security Confederation in the Entrenched Fracture.[2]

In-game information[edit]

The Eaglestrike armor core is unlockable by attaining level 5 on the Event Pass during the Fractures: Entrenched event in Season 02: Lone Wolves, the second season of Halo Infinite multiplayer. Customization options for the Eaglestrike are unlocked by attaining later levels of the Event Pass or purchasing Shop Bundles from the Halo Infinite in-game shop during the weeks when the Fracture: Entrenched event is live.[3][4]
