Halo Infinite: How to get the Scorpion Gun
Halo Infinite is full of easter eggs and entertaining weapons. Until today, those were considered mutually exclusive. The third mission of the campaign has a secret weapon. It’s a portable variant of the Scorpion Tank’s cannon. The weapon is in Outpost Tremonius. But just in mission three. If you return later, the gun will be gone. If you’ve progressed further in the campaign, you’ll need to get it on your next game.
Where to find the Scorpion Gun
First, you must complete the objective until you go outside, marking your first visible ring in Halo Infinite. The mission then requires you to walk up a hill to a ship waiting to pick you up. There will be adversaries trying to kill you, so clear them out first.
After defeating the opponents, use your grappling hook to scale the wall seen below. This wall should be right behind your map’s ship/objective.
Then you’ll face the two cannons shown below. Make sure you climb the right one. The left cannon is purely decorative and serves no purpose.
After climbing the right cannon, stand like in the image below. On the right barrel of the right cannon is a prompt that says Pick Up.
Tips for using the Scorpion Gun
- The gun has unlimited ammo and will one-shot almost any enemy, making it useful for LASO or Legendary runs of the campaign.
- The bullets fired from this gun appear to shoot from your feet. Therefore, if you are on a slant or have your feet blocked, you must jump to shoot up.
- You can not melee, mantle, or use grenades when holding it. Thankfully, you can carry another gun and use that during traversal or times where grenades/melee are needed.
- Do not drop it at any point. If you drop the weapon, it is gone forever.
It’s worth noting that developer 343 has yet to fix this potential bug. So, use the rifle quickly to gain your Legendary or LASO achievements before it’s gone.
