The latest patch for Halo Infinite, which is available to download right now, notably adds four new playlists to the game. Many of these playlists are ones that players have been asking for since Halo Infinite's multiplayer released last month and include Team Slayer, Free-for-All, Tactical Slayer (SWAT), and Fiesta. Team Slayer, in particular, is something that 343 originally said wouldn't be arriving until 2022. However, after receiving numerous pieces of feedback from the community, those working on Halo Infinite decided to add the playlist much further in advance.
Starting today, we've deployed new updates for #HaloInfinite's multiplayer including community requested playlist additions, challenge adjustments, and a quick look at the @HCS Spotlight in-game event!— Halo (@Halo) December 14, 2021

The other biggest tweak to Halo Infinite in this update involves challenges that progress the battle pass. 343 Industries says that is has not only added new challenges to the game in today's update, but it has also tried to "further alleviate frustrating challenges" that players haven't been enjoying. In addition, the requirements that are now needed to achieve each week's Ultimate Challenge have been lowered.
While these are the biggest things that 343 has altered in the latest update for Halo Infinite, by no means is this all that the patch has done. Further tweaks to ranked play and matchmaking have also been made today to go along with rank distribution.
