Halo 5: Guardians grows today with the release of the sci-fi shooter's latest free expansion. Infinity's Armory is now available for the Xbox One game, adding new maps, additional Reqs, and more.

The new maps are Riptide (Arena) and Urban (Warzone Assault), while a Halo 2-era Battle Rifle is one of the featured Reqs; others include rare variants of the Carbine rifle as well as a new Achilles armor set.

A pair of new assassinations are also included with Infinity's Armory. You can head to Halo Waypoint to see a complete breakdown of what's coming to Halo 5 with the free update.
