So, u/Bruh_alt721 on the original r/Halo post encouraged me to make this list after the ideas I listed for Halo Infinite Skulls on his post.
What skulls would you come up with for Infinite? If they are too OP, list as non-scoring.
- (SCORING) Rip and Tear: No weapons equipped, only melee with increased damage. - (NON-SCORING) Menace: Grapple Shot range is increased greatly, speed acceleration increased, no cool down. - (SCORING) Bomb Swap: You throw suicide grunts and Brutes throw fusion coils. - (SCORING) Hail Mary: All enemies can throw suicide grunts, including other grunts. - (SCORING) CQC: The difficulty machete becomes a tertiary weapon, melee damage increased. - (SCORING) Foreign Exchange: UNSC weapons fire plasma, Covenant weapons fire hardlight, and Promethean weapons fire bullets. - (NON-SCORING) Broken Karma: Upon death, your equipment, grenades, and weapons are randomized. - (SCORING) Defect: All weapons randomly become jammed/dysfunctional after some use. - (BOTH) Hero Helper: A random hero will accompany you on your mission. (Jerome, Johnson, Buck, member of Noble Team/Blue Team, etc.) Two options: Immortal & Mortal; Mortal incurs a heavy detraction from your score when the Hero dies, Immortal turns the Hero invincible and this skull Non-Scoring. - (NON-SCORING) Civil: All AI including enemies are friendly/neutral until attacked. - (NON-SCORING) Hover: You are able to ride/hold onto sentinels. - (SCORING) UCON (Under Cover Of Night): Permanent night time set for the mission. Enemy awareness decreased, but do much higher damage when alerted. Stealth/Assassination kills worth double. - (SCORING) Classic: Sprint, Clamber, and Slide are disabled, traded for faster base speed for a classic experience. (Campaign gameplay will adjust accordingly.) - (SCORING) Combat Evolved: Current Shield and Health system switched to Combat Evolved’s Shield and Health Bar system. (Health Packs placed throughout according to difficulty.) - (NON-SCORING) Lunge: Energy swords have an insanely increased range; scope to aim for enemies further away. (Speed exponentially picks up as more distance is traveled.) - (SCORING) Who Am I?: Master Chief is replaced with your Spartan.
