Halo Infinite: How To Defeat Harbinger
Finished Halo Infinite’s final boss, Harbinger? Your ultimate encounter takes place in a vast arena, much larger than any other indoor boss battle in the game. But that place isn’t entirely yours. Harbinger sends forth a horde of Banished and others to kill you. You’ll need every resource to beat her. Get Harbinger in Halo Infinite.
Halo Infinite Harbinger boss battle
The harbinger boss battle reverses the typical boss battle formula. Before you can even touch her, you must first fend off countless Banished forces of various kinds and sizes. Then, if you’re reading this before you’ve seen the whole story, kill every adversary until she eventually pauses inside her protection.
She’ll be exposed without her shield, so assault her with all you’ve got. You can whittle down her lifeforce to a predetermined area, at which point she will re-enter her shield and spit more Banished at you.
This procedure will go on for multiple phases, and it’s rather standard for gamers. But one thing is clear: each phase is more chaotic than the previous one. When Harbinger is nearly defeated and retreats under the shield, prepare for a Halo Infinite first. Every opponent class you’ve encountered in the 15+ hour game will be headhunting.
Watch out for charging Brutes, flying Sentinels, cloaked assassins, grunts, and more. Stay nimble, ideally with the Grappleshot, but a well-placed Drop Wall may also save your life, especially if it’s been upgraded.
This war has no specific science other than one simple adage: Keep moving. In the Harbinger showdown, inaction kills. To experience a final cutscene with more reveals and the post-credits scene, you must get her before she gets you.
