Skulls make a return in the latest Halo campaign, allowing you to apply modifiers to gameplay. In this Halo Infinite Skulls Locations guide, we will show you where to find all the skulls on Zeta Halo.
Halo Infinite Skulls Locations
Skulls can be used to unlock mutations in Halo Infinite and that is why collecting all 12 of them is super important if you want Master Chief or his enemies to be decked out with mutations.
Since main story missions in Halo Infinite cannot be replayed so, if you missed any skulls within those missions then the only way for you to acquire them again is by starting a new campaign.
Skulls can be distinguished by the noises they emit and once you’ve scanned a skull, whether knowingly or unknowingly, it’ll be added to your map.
We have described the location of each skull in Halo Infinite as well as the modifier they provide to make things a lot easier for you.
