The Halo community is having a field day with the freedom Halo Infinite’s open-world campaign provides, and it didn’t take players long to figure out how to skip many of the game’s story missions entirely.
Halo content creator Mint Blitz shows how one such trick is done in a new video, in which he credits the discovery of the skip to members of the Haloruns spreedrunning community. What’s notable about the skip is that it doesn’t seem all that difficult to accomplish. As long as you know how, just about anyone can probably pull this off.
The skip involves upgrading the grappleshot to the fourth level to acquire the First Strike ability, which allows players to perform a powerful melee in conjunction while grappling. Once players reach the Excavation Site mission, players should end the game and reload, ensuring a new checkpoint in case the glitch doesn’t go as planned. From there players need to perform a grapple melee in a very specific location near the Banished mining laser before immediately bringing up the game’s map and fast traveling to any location.
