Who does not love a good achievement hunt in games? The latest installment in the iconic franchise of Halo is one of the best games to try to 100%.

How to Get All Achievements in Halo Infinite
If you’re looking to get all the achievements in Halo Infinite, there are a couple of important things you need to know before you start your journey. First, to get that sweet 100% you’re going to have to finish the story more than once. While the story is an enjoyable experience, some of the challenges you will have to complete will take quite a lot of time.
Also, another big thing is that some achievements are missable. If you miss any of the ones you can get only at one time, you’re going to have to restart your playthrough and get to that specific mission again. Luckily, there are only a few missable achievements in Halo Infinite.
The saving grace for missable achievements is the fact that collectibles DO carry over to other playthroughs. This means even if you miss some collectibles in your first playthrough (they are required to 100% the game) you can collect the rest in the next playthrough.
What Are the Missable Achievements in Halo Infinite
Although not many, there are a few collectibles and activities you can miss, and completing the game relies on collecting them. Sadly, unlike in past Halo games, you can not choose to replay missions after you finished the game. Once a mission is done, it’s gone until you start a new playthrough. Although 343 has announced they are working on this feature for a future update, this has not yet been implemented in the game.
The Missable achievements in Halo Infinite are:
Wars With Friends – Bring some rescued UNSC Marines along for the ride into the main mission.
Gun Runner – Take down all three Banished AA guns in under 20 minutes. (Attempt this during the Pelican Down mission)
Bring Sheila Home Safely – Get the Scorpion all the way to the “House” without it blowing up (Attempt this during the The Road mission)
Forza Veloce – Complete all 14 main missions in under eight hours.
Don’t worry about things you can collect in the open world. If something can be collected while a mission is not active, you will always be able to come back to it. Also, you can only miss achievements in singleplayer. In the multiplayer mode, all achievements can be completed without limitations.
Hardest Achievements to complete in Halo Infinite Single Player
There are 69 achievements players can work towards and complete in Halo Infinite’s campaign. While some of them will be unlocked naturally, especially since you’ll be looking to finish the story multiple times, others are very hard to achieve. Here are some of the hardest Halo Infinite achievements you will have to complete.
A True Test of Legends – Finish all main story missions on Legendary difficulty.
Halo Infinite is not an easy game on the hardest difficulties. Its approach to an open world makes traversal dangerous since many enemies are waiting at every corner. You will also have to fight tough mini-bosses to get upgraded versions of your base weapons. And you will need them in your journey. With only 10% of players completing this challenge, the achievement is the hardest to earn in the entire list.
Catacomb – Discover All Hidden Skulls
The hidden skulls have been a feature of Halo for a long time. They are special collectibles that give the game some spice by adding an extra layer of challenge. For example, one of the skulls turns off your HUD when it is activated. Another gives you unlimited weapon ammo and grenades. And, armor abilities no longer have a cooldown. They are a fun addition to the game meant to reward the most persistent of players. Only 11% of players who own Halo Infinite have collected this achievement.
Headmaster – Complete all main missions of the campaign with ALL skulls active
This one is pretty brutal. There is a total of twelve skulls in the game. Each in a different part of the game. So, to complete this achievement you will first have to complete a playthrough and get all of them, and then start a new one and play each mission with all skulls active. Since there are six good and six bad skulls, the game will be much more difficult to complete this way. If you want to 100% the game, this one is by far the hardest to complete. Only 4% of players have managed to collect this insane achievement.
Hardest Achievements to complete in Halo Infinite Multiplayer
The multiplayer is what made Halo such a beloved franchise. With an increased interest in the esports side of Halo and the introduction of an MMR-based rank system, the game is at an all-time high in terms of competitiveness. Alongside the rank, players can show their mastery and skills with some of the best achievements in the franchise’s history.
MEDIC! – Revive 3 allies in an Attrition/Elimination round in a matchmade or custom game.
With the chaotic nature of Halo multiplayer, not many players focus on reviving their teammates, especially if they are having a bad game. As a result, only 4% of players have managed to complete this achievement.
Greased Lightning – Complete the Movement Yard in under 25 seconds. (SECRET)
Not many people know that the tutorial in Halo Infinite multiplayer is home to quite a few achievements. To get this secret one, you have to complete the tutorial once, then go back to the starting room and redeploy. After that, try to complete the Movement Yard tutorial in under 25 seconds. Only 0.01% of players have collected this achievement.
New Kid on the Block – Earn “Perfect” with a VK78 Commando in a matchmade game
In a matchmade game, earn a perfect kill with one of the most iconic weapons in Halo to get this achievement. A perfect kill is killing an enemy with the minimum amount of ammo required without missing a single shot. In the case of the Commando, hit 8 shots in a row to kill your enemy and get the achievement. Only 18% of players have unlocked this achievement.
