Halo Infinite has a large selection of customization options. There are effects that can be attached to your Spartan, and friendly AI companions that will help out in game, but how do you get them? We detail how to obtain them all.

Halo Infinite has no shortage of customization options, with each being split into their own area. Halo Infinite Armor cores, armor pieces, armor effects and more are available to unlock, but keeping track of how to unlock them all may be difficult.

In this piece, we’ll break down each effect, along with a step by step guide on how to obtain it. All effects, past and present will also be included, so be sure to double check if the effect is still available to unlock in game.

This piece will focus on:

  • Halo Infinite Armor Effects
  • Halo Infinite Kill Effects
  • Mythic Effect Sets
  • AIs

Emblems, coatings, armor kits, visors, stances and armor will not be included in this piece. We’ll have separate pieces out soon for all other types of customization unlocks.
