Knowing what to expect from the best guns in Halo Infinite multiplayer will give you an advantage in battle and help you stay alive for longer.

Fans can jump into Halo Infinite’s newest competitive mode with the launch of multiplayer. No matter how experienced you are with Halo, you’re likely to stumble a bit when you first try Infinite. Many elements have been modified, and new additions have been made–not the least of which are the guns in Halo Infinite. Many of these weapons are new versions of familiar ones, such as assault rifles and battle rifles. 

However, other weapons are either brand new or have had their ranges and functionality altered. You can get killed by someone with more experience if you try to figure out how your new guns work in the middle of a match.

We’ve put up a comprehensive guide to all of the best guns in Halo Infinite Multiplayer to help you understand how they operate and how you should attempt to utilize them. Whether up close and personal or at extended ranges. You may also try each pistol out for yourself in the Academy part of the main menu. It’ll almost certainly save your life.

What are the Best Guns in Halo Infinite Multiplayer?

1. MA40 AR

The original assault rifle from Halo is also your default weapon and the weaponry you’re most likely to use. It’s a simple assault rifle that’s excellent at close and medium ranges, slamming a lot of bullets on a target rapidly but spraying about a lot. 

Anything beyond mid-range renders the MA40 worthless, but in close quarters, it’s a formidable cannon for ripping away an enemy shield and finishing the job. As an opener or closer to a battle, combine the MA40 with a grenade explosion and aim to strike your enemy with as much of a magazine as possible. If you don’t stop firing and keep the rifle on the enemy, you’ll discover that it can efficiently rip through Spartans.

2. S7 Sniper

The sniper is a legendary Halo weapon that has remained at the top of the game for centuries. The sniper, as one of the original power weapons, is always worth pursuing. However, the new version of Infinite may be difficult to adjust to. Aiming with the sniper is a little more difficult than in previous entries. No matter where the shot hits, it will inflict a little over 1,000 damage unless it hits the head. With two shots to the body or one shot to the head, the S7 Sniper will drop enemy Spartans.

Nonetheless, it’s never an awful gun to have, especially if it means keeping it away from your opponent. It’s critical for securing regions and one-tapping opponents. You may even try a cheeky no-scope if you’re skillful enough.

3. Pulse Carbine

Halo Infinite features a new version of the Covenant plasma rifle, which has historically been favored by Covenant Elites. With the carbine, you can run longer ranges with greater precision and handle it without overheating, without the gun overheating in your hand. It can fire three rounds at once that track targets and drop shields, making it ideal for pairing with a straight weapon like the BR75 or Sidekick pistol.

4. Skewer

Skewers can be used in a similar way to S7 Snipers, but there is a twist to them. No matter where you strike your opponent with the Skewer, it is a one-shot kill. In other words, they’ll be taken out even if you shoot them in the toe.

Despite this, the Skewer has less ammo than a sniper and is harder to aim. This doesn’t mean it’s not a great weapon. Almost impossible to defeat in the hands of a skilled player, the Skewer is one of the most powerful weapons in the game. This is even more destructive in Big Team Battle, as it can destroy a vehicle in as little as one or two shots. It is worth keeping an eye out for.

5. M41 SPNKR

The rocket launcher in Halo Infinite Multiplayer stands out from the rest of the game’s potent weaponry. The M41 SPNKR Rocket Launcher has returned, bringing with it a great deal of mayhem and destruction. The rocket launcher is both highly effective and incredibly frustrating because it requires very little skill to gain kills.

The splash damage has the potential to cover a broad area, which may be both advantageous and disadvantageous. Even if the rocket does not make a direct strike, enemies can be hit, but if you aren’t careful, you can easily kill yourself. The Rocket Launcher may be discovered at various weapons spawns, although they have a 30-second timer before they can be used. The M41 SPNKR Rocket Launcher is without a doubt the greatest weapon in Halo Infinite, with two rockets in a clip and a large amount of damage it can deal.

There are also some other best guns in Halo Infinite Multiplayer, such as the Hydra, the Ravager, the Cindershot, the Stalker Rifle, and the CQS48 Bulldog. Check out all the above guns and see which one suits your style of play best.
