All Halo Infinite equipment items and how to use them

Halo Infinite Equipment items can really help you in combat by providing defensive support, extra agility, or even just an extra layer of protection. However, learning as much as you can about how they work and how to use them can help you gain the upper hand over your Halo Infinite opponents. You’ll find returning abilities on the battlefields of Halo Infinite, such as Thruster from Halo 5: Guardians and classic Overshield and Active Camo, as well as some new abilities like Graappleshot and Repulsor. Here’s what you need to know about Halo Infinite gear items and how they work in multiplayer.

Every equipped item in Halo Infinite is automatically picked up as you walk by, unless you have already saved an equipped item. You can see what you have by looking at the box next to the grenade counter in the lower right corner of the screen. Each device has its own icon, so be sure to learn to tell them apart. Press the team button to use your current team, which is RB in the standard controller layout or Q on your keyboard, or if you find another item you like, you can follow the button prompts to change it.

You’ll also see a number next to the gear icon indicating how much you’re using that gear. You can additionally use your current equipment item by performing another of the same item, but not all equipment gets the same amount of standard and maximum uses. Power devices are one-offs and provide passive enhancements for a limited time.You can only hold one at a time, but you can use an energy pack and pick it up right away another device.

All gear items except Overshield and Active Camo have short cooldowns between uses, lasting no more than a few seconds, but with some variation. Fighting Shot has almost no cooldown, while Falling Wall has a relatively significant cooldown, but it only lasts a few seconds, long enough to keep you from spamming the Shield Wall. Here’s our take on every piece of gear in Halo Infinite multiplayer.

Halo Gear Infinite Grappleshot Grappling Hook Swing to Ledge

Of course, Halo Infinite has a grappling hook, and it comes in the form of Grapleshot. The player can click the gear button to quickly launch the hook and be quickly pulled to the hook point. This is a very interesting piece of clothing that can be used in creative ways. You can grab an enemy to kill (which goes well with the energy sword), use it to zip across the map and swipe quickly, or you can reach hard-to-reach ledges very quickly. You can even pick up CTF weapons and flags from a distance!

When flying, he has some control in the air and can swing off the hook, but if he looks too far from the tip of the hook, he will break the catch line. Pressing the gear or crouch button while fighting will also cut the line faster, but if you cut the line by crouching down, you’ll slip on the ground. When you have the Grappleshot equipped, also look for the yellow dot in the center of the line of sight – it will appear when the surface or object you are looking at is within range of your grappling hook.

Insect repellent

Halo Infinite's team Repulsor returns plasma grenades

The Repulsor is the ultimate repeller for grenades and confined spaces. Using the Repulsor will cause your Spartan to quickly fire a wrist-mounted explosive device that knocks objects back. Its most obvious use is to keep enemies (probably those with swords, hammers, or shotguns) away from you, but it’s also useful against vehicles and even missiles and grenades. If you can react fast enough, fending off a plasma grenade thrown with a repeller will almost always cause it to fly backwards and stick to the thrower.

If you want to use the Repulsor for more lethal purposes, you’ll have to use the map to your advantage, as you can lure enemies to the edge of the map and launch them into the abyss. With incredibly low health, hitting an enemy so hard that hitting a wall is enough to kill him and earn the “Pancake” medal.

threat sensor

A threat sensor is a small device that fires like a sticky grenade to reveal the location of nearby enemies. When the sensor is attached to a surface or even other players, it will send out some pulses, marking enemies within range with a red outline, even through solid objects like walls and covers. Each sensor lasts six seconds after hitting a surface, so you have plenty of time to keep an eye on enemies and make moves or react to their attacks. Note, however, that threat sensors do not counteract Active Camo.

Standard number of applications: 2

Maximum number of applications: 4

propeller

The thruster gear item will give you some loads of thruster packs that will allow you to do quick side rushes up close. Its primary use is as an evasion aid, as a quick sprint back or sideways is enough to gain a little extra cover or throw off an opponent’s target. You can also use the Jetpack more aggressively to close the distance between you and enemies, or use it in the air to jump farther than usual and unlock new traversal routes on the compact 4v4 arena map.

Maximum number of applications: 5

Active camouflage

Halo Infinite Gear Item Active Camouflage Invisibility

Active Camo has been around in one form or another in most Halo games, but in Halo Infinite it’s pretty powerful. By using this power pack, from the moment you activate it, you will be almost completely invisible for about 30 seconds. When you move, you will hardly see only faint ripples. Invisibility temporarily stops when you fire, touch, throw grenades, or run, but become invisible again when you stop running or attacking. To make matters worse for your opponents, when you’re invisible, you won’t show up on motion trackers, and threat sensors can’t detect you, meaning the only way to be detected is through your opponent’s keen eyes.

overprotection

Overshield is a classic Halo power-up that returns in Halo Infinite. Using this Power Equipment item will add an extra layer of protection to your health bar, which will decrease over time. It takes about 40 seconds from Overshield’s activation to complete disappearance. When you have the Overshield active, you will see the health bar at the top of the screen turn yellow, but the yellow bar will shrink as the shield decays. Other than that, it works exactly like a normal shield, making you almost twice as hard to kill.

Halo Infinite Equipment items can really help you out in a fight by providing defensive support, extra agility, or even just an extra layer of shielding. However, knowing as much as possible about how they work and how to use them can help you get the upper hand over your Halo Infinite opponents. You’ll find returning abilities, such as the Thruster from Halo 5: Guardians and the classic Overshield and Active Camo, but also some new ones, like the Grappleshot and Repulsor in the battlefields of Halo Infinite.

Any Equipment item in Halo Infinite is automatically picked up when you walk over it unless you already have an equipment item stored. You can see what you have by looking at the box next to your grenade counter in the bottom-right corner of your screen. Each piece of Equipment has its own icon, so make sure you learn how to tell them apart. Press the equipment button to use your current Equipment – that’s RB on the default controller layout or Q on a keyboard – or you can swap it out by following the button prompt if you find another item that you prefer.
You’ll also notice that a number appears next to the Equipment item icon which indicates how many uses you have for that piece of equipment. You can pick up extra uses for your current Equipment item by running over another of the same item, but not all Equipment gets the same number of default and maximum uses. Power Equipment is single-use and provides a passive benefit for a limited time. You can only hold one at a time, but you can use a piece of Power Equipment and immediately pick up a different Equipment item.

All Equipment items, except for Overshield and Active Camo, have short cooldowns between uses, lasting no more than several seconds, but there is a bit of variation. The Grappleshot has almost no cooldown while the Drop Wall has a relatively significant cooldown but it’s still only a few seconds – just long enough to prevent you from spamming shield walls. Here’s what we think about each equipment item in Halo Infinite multiplayer.

Grappleshot

Of course Halo Infinite has a grappling hook, and it comes in the form of the Grappleshot. Players can tap the Equipment button to rapidly fire out the hook and get quickly reeled in towards the hook point. It’s an incredibly fun Equipment item to use and can be used in some creative ways. You can grapple enemies to close in for a kill (which combos well with the Energy Sword), use it to quickly cross a map with a good swing, or you can pull yourself up to hard-to-reach ledges very quickly. It can even pick up weapons and CTF Flags from afar!

As you fly, you have some mid-air control and can swing around with the hook, but you’ll break the grappling line if you look away from the hook point too much. Pressing the Equipment button or the Crouch button while grappling will cut the line early too, although if you cut the line by crouching, you will slide when you hit the ground. Also look out for the yellow dot in the middle of your crosshair while you have the Grappleshot equipped – it appears whenever the surface or object you’re looking at is in range of your hook.
Default number of uses: 3
Maximum number of uses: 5
Repulsor

(Image credit: Xbox Game Studios)
The Repulsor is the ultimate grenade and close-quarters repellent. Using the Repulsor causes your Spartan to quickly to fire out a wrist-mounted blast that knocks things back. The most obvious use is to keep enemies – perhaps those with a sword, hammer, or shotgun – away from you, but it also works against vehicles and even rockets and grenades. If you can react quickly enough, deflecting a thrown Plasma Grenade with the Repulsor almost always causes it to fly back and stick to whoever threw it.

(Image credit: Xbox Game Studios)
If you want to use the Repulsor for more lethal purposes, using the map to your advantage is key as you can bait enemies to the edge of a map and boop them into the abyss. Repelling an enemy so that they hit a wall while they are on incredibly low health can also be just enough to kill them and get a ‘Pancake’ medal.
Default number of uses: 3
Maximum number of uses: 5
Threat Sensor

(Image credit: Xbox Game Studios)
The Threat Sensor is a little device that can be fired off like a sticky grenade to reveal the positions of nearby enemies. When the sensor sticks to a surface, or even another player, it emits a few pulses that highlight enemies in range with a red silhouette, even through solid objects like walls and cover. Each senor lasts for six seconds as soon as it hits a surface, so you’ve got a decent amount of time to survey your enemies and make your move or respond to their incoming attack. However, please note that the Threat Sensor does not counter Active Camo!
Default Number of uses: 2
Maximum number of uses: 4
Thruster

(Image credit: Xbox Game Studios)
The Thruster equipment item gives you a couple of charges for a thruster pack that allows you to perform a rapid, short-range lateral dash. Its main use is as an evasive tool, since a quick dash backwards or to the side might be enough to get you a bit of extra cover or to throw off your opponent’s aim. You can also use the Thruster more aggressively to close the gap between you and an enemy, or use it in mid-air to jump further than usual and unlock new traversal pathways in tight 4 vs 4 arena maps.
Default Number of uses: 3
Maximum number of uses: 5
Active Camo

(Image credit: Xbox Game Studios)
Active Camo has been in most Halo games in some form, but it is incredibly powerful in Halo Infinite. Using this Power Equipment makes you almost totally invisible for about 30 seconds from the moment you activate it. You will become very difficult to spot with only faint ripples giving you away as you move. The invisibility temporarily stops when you shoot your weapon, melee, throw a grenade, or sprint, but you will become invisible again if you stop sprinting or attacking. To make things worse for your opponents, you don’t show up on motion trackers while you are invisible and you can’t be spotted by Threat Sensors, meaning the only way to get spotted is by the keen eyes of your opponents.
Overshield

(Image credit: Xbox Games Studios)
The Overshield is a classic Halo power-up that makes a return in Halo Infinite. Using this Power Equipment item will add an extra layer of shielding to your health bar that decays over time. It takes about 40 seconds to fully decay from the moment the Overshield becomes active. You’ll notice your health bar at the top of your screen turn yellow while you have an Overshield active, but the yellow bar will shrink as the shield decays. Other than that, its exactly like a normal shield, making you almost twice as hard to kill.
