Some general tips on collecting Skulls in Halo Infinite

  1. We suggest you often use Grappleshots in corners that might be high up on the map as these Skulls are very well hidden.
  2. Skulls will be highlighted in Gold when the scanner is used by the player. Players are required to pay close attention whenever they scan as the Skull highlights are very small and easily missable.
  3. Skulls give out a distinct sound effect when you’re nearby one. Be sure to listen carefully to make tracking the Skull much easier.
  4. Skulls will be marked on your map once they have been scanned successfully.
  5. In the open world, it is easier to look out for strange markings, unique enemies, etc. These almost and always lead to a Skull that is nearby.
