This week saw the introduction of a new cosmetic bundle in Halo Infinite’s microtransaction store, and based on the number of cat ears present in multiplayer, it seems to be selling very, very well.
For $10, players can purchase the Cat Lovers bundle, which includes a cat ears attachment for the Mark VII Spartan helmet, the Tabby cat weapon charm, a pink armor coating, and a Kat (as in Catherine B320 from Halo: Reach) helmet weapon charm. It all looks more than a little goofy, but it’s not the first time Halo Infinite has sold silly armor and weapon attachments. Players could previously buy pineapples for their armor or a flower for their helmet, so this kind of stuff isn’t exactly new.
What is new is just how many people seem to be buying this latest bundle. Multiple players on the game’s subreddit have commented on the number of people in recent multiplayer matches that are wearing the cat ears on their armor, and Halo content creator Mint Blitz also recently released a video on the subject, remarking on how well it appears to be selling.
