Halo Infinite easter eggs and secrets

Halo games have always been known to house an abundance of easter eggs and the latest installment is no exception. Here are all the easter eggs and secrets found in Halo Infinite.

There are many hidden references and mentions of popular culture in the new Halo. Although the game is only currently in the Multiplayer Beta stage, the developers have put a lot of effort into the cosmetics, maps, and audio.

With that being said, here is every Halo Infinite easter egg and secretly found in the Multiplayer.

Halo Infinite easter eggs & secrets

Thankfully, YouTuber xGarbett has compiled every current easter egg and secret in Halo Infinite. There’s a lot to get through so let’s get to it.

First off, let’s take a look at all of the references and easter eggs to the Halo franchise in Infinite.

References to Halo

Halo Infinite novels easter egg

In Halo Infinite, players have found books on The Streets map that reference real Halo Novels.

These include “Silent Storm” and “Renegades,” which are both Halo novels that fans can purchase and read in real life.

This is a nice touch from the developers, especially for those who have read the novels.

Halo Infinite spartan easter egg

Next, we have a more obvious reference to the Halo franchise. Players can find Spartan Murals sprawled across the walls of multiple maps.

This art depicts the now-famous Spartan soldiers that have really become iconic thanks to the main man Master Chief.

Halo Infinite 202 reveal easter egg

This Halo Infinite easter egg is a reference to the 202 Halo Infinite Campaign reveal, where a cut scene ended with a crashing Pelican.

In the cutscene, the character says “Yep, this is death…” which is what is shown as your location when you enter the pilot seat in the multiplayer map “Deadlock.”

Halo Infinite odst easter egg

Players have also found a reference to the previous Halo ODST.

On The Streets, you can find ODST art on the wall, referencing a cult-classic Halo game that many fans will definitely enjoy.

Halo Infinite 8 bit easter egg

The last and probably most interesting Halo easter egg players can find on The Streets is this Halo Infinite arcade machine.

This machine plays various songs from Halo Combat Evolved in 8 bit, a great addition that will be noticed and appreciated by hardcore Halo fans.

Leading onto easter eggs that reference popular culture outside of Halo, next to this machine is another game that references one of the most popular arcade games of all time, Space Invaders.

Halo Infinite popular culture easter eggs

Halo Infinite cat easter egg

First off we have a picture of a cat that can be found on The Streets map. The image is pretty random, but considering it’s an image of a real cat, perhaps this is actually one of the developer’s pets.

This wouldn’t be the first time game developers have included images of their pets as in-game easter eggs. Recently, players found an image of a developer’s dog on the Apex Legends map Storm Point.

Halo Infinite 343 easter egg

Behind the arcade machines on The Streets, players can look behind some glass and see a clear reference to the developers behind Halo Infinite.

The numbers that show up are “34:3,” which is obviously a reference for 343 Industries.

Halo Infinite evangelion easter egg

Once again, The Streets map is host to another easter egg. This time it’s a reference to Evangelion, a popular Japanese anime series.

The image is displaying an 8-bit version of an Eva unit, which is a fictional biomechanical humanoid.

Halo Infinite sesame street easter egg

We then have a reference to Sesame Street in The Streets map. If you manage to find the little corner with two bins on the map, pinging the open bin will label it as “Oscar’s House.”

For those unaware, Oscar the Grouch is a character from Sesame Street who lives in a trash can.

Halo Infinite red vs blue easter egg

We then have a couple of references to the popular “Red vs Blue” Halo web series created by Rooster Teeth.

This series has increased in popularity massively over the years, but this is a reference to one of the early episodes where a Spartan is convinced their armor is “lightish red” and not pink.

Halo Infinite red vs blue easter egg

The next Red vs Blue reference is concerning another early episode where a Spartan is being told they have something blue stuck to their helmet.

Ultimately it’s a sticky grenade, but while trying to figure out what it is the soldier asks if it’s a spider.

Halo Infinite among us easter egg

This Weapon Emblem of the number 3 in Halo infinite is a reference to the hugely popular game Among Us.

In Among Us, when there are three players left, a decision needs to be made as to who the imposter is. This is why the quote for this cosmetic item says, “we need to vote someone off the ship.”

Halo Infinite fallout easter egg

Another cosmetic item easter egg references another massive game franchise in Fallout.

In Fallout 3, one of the opening lines is “War never changes.” This is spun as Wort never changes in Halo Infinite, Wort being the Halo universe’s word for “Go” when entering battle.

Halo Infinite Doom easter egg

Finally, we have a reference to arguably the FPS game that started it all, Doom.

The original Doom had many cheat codes, but one of the most popular was the IDDQD, which was essentially “God Mode.”


That’s all for every easter egg and secrets found in Halo Infinite’s multiplayer maps. If more are found we’ll be sure to update this piece with the information. For more on Halo Infinite, be sure to check out how the ranked playlist works.

Is Halo Infinite getting a battle royale mode? Leaks and rumors

Are 343 Industries working on a battle royale mode for Halo Infinite? Check out all the latest rumors and leaks here.

Whispers of a Halo Infinite battle royale mode have been around for some time now, but 343 Industries are yet to confirm or deny the rumors. Will Halo Infinite see a Warzone-style playlist? We’ve put together every leak and hint so far.

Halo Infinite launched to critical acclaim back in 2021, and the Season 2 update has brought a plethora of brand-new content for players to enjoy, including a new Battle Pass, maps, and more.

One feature that could draw fans back in would be a Warzone or Apex Legends-style mode, a concept that would be brand-new for the Halo franchise. Are 343 Industries working on a Halo Infinite battle royale?

Are Certain Affinity developing Halo’s BR?

Certain Affinity, a studio that has lent a hand in the development of plenty of Halo games in the past, announced on April 13, 2022, that they are “deepening” their relationship with 343 Industries, and will be “evolving” Halo Infinite going forward.

Responding to the announcement, well-known leaker Tom Henderson tweeted “where we droppin’ boys,” a popular phrase said by battle royale players.

Halo Infinite battle royale mode release date leak

Leaker ‘Sean W’ claims that Halo Infinite’s battle royale mode won’t arrive until Fall 2023 at the earliest. This is because the developers are currently playtesting the battle royale map which needs “a whole lot of work.”

The leaker added that this date isn’t definite, and the developers are trying to get this mode ready as soon as possible but it’s “definitely not coming this year.”

Halo Infinite Tatanka battle royale mode leaks

Reddit user ‘yutuyo’ discovered that the internal name for Certain Affinity’s project is “Tatanka,” which they pointed out is also the name of a professional wrestler known for winning a 40-man battle royale.

According to a report from data miner ‘Infiniteleaks’, Halo Infinite’s Tatanka battle royale mode will throw players into shrinking map zones. This leak lists drop pods, a containment zone, reviving knocked players, and bleeding out for downed players in the game settings.

You may be able to play multi-team as part of Duos and Quads with up to 100 players in Tatanka. This game mode is also said to support between 60 and 100 bots. Four different types of objectives have been leaked for this mode: Capture, Supply Run, Destroy, and Hoard.

Windows Central’s Jez Corden tweeted that Tatanka has been in development since Spring 2020, and is expected to be a “major feature” while 343 Industries focus on Halo Infinite’s core multiplayer as well as a new story DLC.

Corden described Tatanka as a PvPvE (player vs player vs environment) battle royale type experience. This lines up with the previous leaks claiming that fans will be able to battle bots as well as other players.

However, he also added that players should take that last part with a grain of salt. Corden tweeted: “Just to add, still not 100% on the PvE part, conflicting info on some of the gameplay details.”

While this all seems exciting, it’s worth keeping in mind that this information is based on leaks and speculation, so it’s best to wait for the Halo Infinite developers to verify all of this themselves.

Dr Disrespect leak Halo battle royale

Dr Disrespect and Halo spartan

As early as September 2021, before Halo Infinite had even launched, streaming superstar Dr Disrespect claimed to have “inside information” on a new battle royale mode.

He stated on-stream that the BR would have a staggering 300 players, and that power weapons would take center stage.

“From what I’ve heard, 300 players, set loop, power weapons on the map, the map designed around the power weapons and locations and points of interest,” said Dr Disrespect.

This many players would dwarf the lobby sizes of its rivals, but the creator believed this shouldn’t affect performance, adding that the mode will feel “really good, supposedly, super optimized.”

Audio file leak Halo BR

Halo Infinite Ghost fighting

Although it’s yet to materialize, it appears that 343 had at least considered including a battle royale in Halo Infinite long before it was released. In August 2021, shortly after the first technical preview, data miners uncovered audio files that strongly hinted that a BR will arrive one day.

In the short clip, fans could hear the familiar voice of beloved Halo multiplayer announcer, Jeff Steitzer, saying the words “battle royale.”

Steitzer’s lines player at the beginning of every Halo Infinite match, declaring which mode players are about to tackle. If the iconic announcer has recorded lines for a battle royale it’s safe to say that the mode is in the pipeline somewhere.


That was everything we know so far about the rumored Halo Infinite battle royale mode. For more on Halo Infinite, check out details on the upcoming Forge mode as well as the June 14 Halo Infinite update patch notes.

Halo Infinite leak claims battle royale won’t release for a long time

A new leak suggests that Halo Infinite is set to receive a battle royale mode but it won’t arrive for quite some time.

There have been rumors of a Halo Infinite battle royale mode for a while now, and a new leak suggests that we won’t see this mode arrive for quite some time.

Halo Infinite had a successful launch back in 2021, with many players considering the game to be a return to form for the series, and the Season 2 update added content like a brand-new Battle Pass, maps, and modes.

There have been rumors pointing to the arrival of a battle royale mode in Halo Infinite, and a new leak has emerged, suggesting that we might not see this mode get released for a long time.

Leaker ‘Sean W’ revealed new details about the content that 343 Industries have planned for Halo Infinite, and this includes the battle royale mode. According to this leak, this mode won’t arrive until Fall 2023 at the earliest.

The leaker stated: “They are gonna try to get it out as soon as possible but it’s definitely not coming this year. They’re playtesting the map right now, but apparently, even just the map needs a whole lot of work.”

Sean W claimed that the map for the Halo Infinite battle royale mode will feature an integration of two maps from Halo 2 and Halo 3, and these might be set on a halo ring. The leaker also added that the battle royale will include “lootboxes with tiered versions of all the weapons.”

While this sounds promising, it’s worth keeping in mind that this is just a leak, and Sean W stated that his source is not “anyone publicly associated with 343.” For this reason, you should take this information with a grain of salt.

We’ll have to wait for an official announcement from the developers in order to be sure exactly how much of this leaked information is accurate. Once there are any more developments, we’ll be sure to update you.
