Halo Infinite: How does Shock Chain work

share to other networks share to twitter share to facebook

Halo Infinite's Multiplayer is out right now - a little bit earlier than expected - and we can't wait to jump into it. As much as it's the same classic Halo experience, it's also a new and fresh take on the arena shooting we know and love. One thing that might be confusing is Halo Infinite's Shock Chain - here's everything you need to know.

SHOCK CHAIN - What is it and how does it work?

In Halo Infinite, a Shock Chain is triggered when you hit more than one enemy with a weapon that does shock damage. The Shock Rifle and Dynamo Grenades are examples of this. If you're quick enough, you should be able to create a Shock Chain with any shock-damage weapon in Halo Infinite.

This isn't exactly something that veteran gamers will be strangers to, but it can be a complicated thing to trigger in-game if you're not paying attention.

Your opponents are going to need to be quite close together if you're trying to start a Shock Chain in Halo Infinite. In addition to this, a lot of challenges require kills with a Shock weapon in a Shock Chain - and they don't always do as much damage as you'd like. So, it might be worth tackling your enemies with something else and then dropping a Shock-based grenade on them to finish them off.

It's all about timing with the Shock Chain, really. With enough practice and a bit of luck, you'll be able to stack up Shock Chain kills in Halo Infinite in no time.

Halo Infinite's Season 1 Multiplayer Beta is out right now and Halo Infinite's Campaign is due to drop on December 8th. Expect more content, including maps, weapons, and armour sets, to be added by 343 Industries in the future. Halo Infinite is going to be around for a long time - hopefully.
