Tips & Tricks Presented by KIOXIA: Halo Infinite’s Beginner Guide (Part 1)

Looking for a new first-person shooter (FPS) game to play? Halo infinite might just be the game for you. Halo is a familiar childhood name with most XBOX players, and they have recently released Halo Infinite. Halo Infinite is the sixth mainline entry in the Halo series, and an open-world campaign. There are two modes, the multiplayer mode, and the campaign mode. In today’s guide, we will first discuss the multiplayer mode. 

For the previous Halo games, gamers will be used to paying for them. However, for Halo Infinite’s multiplayer mode, it is reimagined and free-to-play. Seasonal updates evolve the experience over time with unique events, new modes and maps, and community-focused content. 

In Halo Infinite, there are so many guns for players to choose from. Players will start with a handgun and an assault rifle, but there are hundreds more to choose from. Each has its own unique points and advantages. Running out of ammo quickly is common as taking down an enemy uses many bullets. Use Infinite’s training arena to train and familiarize yourself with the variety of weapons so you can get a better understanding of them.

Tip: Switch guns instead of reloading to take quicker shots!

Halo returns to its roots with fair starts, on-map equipment, and 4-player squads to offer the ultimate arena-shooter experience. In ranked mode, you can climb your way up from Bronze to Onyx. In big team battles, players can create endless combat possibilities by mixing and matching a rich variety of weapons, vehicles, and equipment to experience big-team mayhem and fun that embraces the full spectrum of the Halo sandbox. 

The current battle pass is Season 1: Heroes of Reach and it expires in May 2022. If you attain level 100 on the Halo Infinite Season 1: Heroes of Reach Battle Pass, you’ll be able to earn 166 rewards. This Battle Pass features a number of Halo: Reach-themed gear, such as armor, coatings, and kits for all members of the Noble Team. A notable item is the Judgement Flame Mythic Effect Set. 

Tip: Do challenges to gain XP and level up even if you did not buy the premium battle pass. 

To start off, the most basic tip is to always stick with your team. During game modes like ‘Capture the Flag’ and ‘Oddball,’ one of your team’s members will be holding on to the objective and unable to sprint. If you split from the squad to gain kills instead of protecting the flag or ball bearer, the opponent could simply hunt them down and attack the objective. As a result, sticking with your team is highly recommended. 

Tip: If you’re carrying the goal, use your friends as a shield.

Use your grenades! Spam your grenades at the enemy as they cause AOE (Area of Effect) damage, as well as split them up to make them easier for one-to-one confrontation. 

Tip: Pick up and use plasma grenades. You can throw and ‘stick’ them on your enemy, where it will explode and kill them. 

With beautiful 4K graphics and world-class cross-platform play, Halo Infinite delivers an incredible experience across the Xbox One and newer family of consoles, as well as PC. Enjoy upgraded features such as up to 120 frames per second (FPS) and significantly reduced load times for smooth gameplay that ushers in the next age of gaming.
