There are several iconic collectibles throughout video games, some more infamous than others (looking at you, Assassin’s Creed flags, and Grand Theft Auto 4 pigeons). Out of all of them, however, arguably none are more recognizable than the Skulls from the Halo series. These collectibles that can give added gameplay modifiers once again return in the long-running FPS series’ latest entry, Halo Infinite. Among these 12 Skulls found across the Zeta Halo, one of them is the Bandana Skull, which will let you channel your inner Rambo or Solid Snake from Metal Gear Solid 2 and use some “Infinite Ammo.” For a Skull that is so powerful, it’s no wonder that players are having a hard time finding it. Luckily, this guide will show you the Bandana Skull location in Halo Infinite.
How to Get the Bandana Skull in Halo Infinite
While there are several Skulls that players can collect in the open world, there are five that must be found in story missions, with the Bandana Skull being one of the latter. The mission in question is The Silent Auditorium, the 16th and final mission in the story. To get this Skull, you will need to make your way through the level until you reach a certain door, found across a light bridge. Sounds easy enough, but the reason players might find this difficult is that you can’t kill any Sentinels, the flying type enemies in Halo Infinite, on your way to the door. There are no Sentinels in the first three engagements of the level, but when you reach the fourth room, a large open room that will also see Brutes, Jackals, Elites, and of course, even Grunts, appear to take down Chief.
While not necessary, it is best for players trying to get the Bandana Skull to not fight any of these enemies and simply get to the door at the end of the room to ensure that you don’t accidentally get a Sentinel caught up in the crossfire. You will then need to make your way through two more rooms that you need to run through until you reach a light bridge that takes you to a regular bridge that goes to the left. Ignore that bridge and look across the chasm opposite the light bridge you just crossed.
Approach the door that you can see and if you haven’t killed any Sentinels, it should be unlocked. If the door doesn’t open, you will need to reset the level. Make sure that you don’t complete the mission as, at the time of writing, there is no way to replay missions (though 343 Industries has announced that they will add it at a later date). You will need to replay the entire game to retry this mission so make sure to get it done now. Enter the door and climb up on the platform in the middle of the room, where you will find the Bandana Skull.
The skulls are just one type of the number of collectibles that can be found in Halo Infinite, which include audio logs and Mjolnir Lockers that contain different weapon and armor coatings.
