How to get the Halo Death Hex skin drop in Halo Infinite
It's pretty simple: All you have to do is tune into the HCS Charlotte '23 Kickoff Major to unlock the Death Hex skin collections. The skins are for four weapons in-game — the Sidekick, Commando, Bulldog, and BR75. The Major begins on Feb. 24 and continues for the next two days until Feb. 26. It starts at 12 pm Eastern Standard time. To claim these skins, all you need is a Twitch account that's connected with your Halo Waypoint profile (more on that later!) You can get the Sidekick skin by watching the Major for two hours on days one to three.
As for the Commando skin, it shows up after two hours of watching on days two to three.
The Bulldog Death Hex skin has a much shorter window to claim within, and you'll need to watch for two hours on day three.
The most difficult of the lot to claim is the skin for the BR 75, which you can only get by watching the finals for 45 minutes.
The official Halo Esports Twitter also announced that fans watching the event on co-streams of the tournament would unlock the Death Hex M40 AR skin. All they have to do is watch the event for two hours on any of the official co-streamers' channels. The co-streamers for the event have not yet been announced.
Days 1 to 3
- Watch the HCS Charlotte Major on the official Twitch broadcast for two hours: Death Hex Sidekick skin
Days 2 to 3
- Watch the HCS Charlotte Major on the official Twitch broadcast for two hours: Death Hex Commando skin.
- Watch the HCS Charlotte Major on the official Twitch broadcast for two hours: Death Hex Bulldog skin.
Day 3 (Grand Finals)

Day 1 to 3

Further, live attendees at the event will get a code in Charlotte featuring all of the Twitch Drops so you don't have to watch from your phone or miss out.
