Halo Infinite: How To Use The Cindershot

Each Cindershot magazine has a maximum capacity of 6 projectiles, where each missile is capable of high damage. The Cindershot is unique in that the shots bounce once before exploding into several pieces, unless it's been shot directly at a Spartan. This means that you can miss your shot, but it could still end up making contact with your target.

You can also control the direction the projectiles travel by zooming in. Shoot the grenade and focus on a specific location to divert the bomb to your intended target. This makes the Cindershot useful in making contact with large groups of people who are pretty far away, or for damaging groups of Spartans in a tight room that can't be faced head-on.

While the Cindershot isn't the best explosive option, it stills offers you the most creative way to take out your enemies. If you're struggling with progressing in Halo Infinite, check out our guide on how to gain XP fast.
