Halo Infinite's campaign features a huge open world-inspired map to explore. It's called Zeta Halo and is a mysterious Halo ring occupied by The Banished. It's your job to slowly push back Banished forces by taking back bases, destroying key encampments, and rescuing UNSC Marines. As you do so, you'll earn Valor, which is essentially an XP system that unlocked new weapons and vehicles back at FOBs. In this guide, we'll explain all of the ways that you can earn Valor, and highlight some of the best and fastest ways to do so.
Halo Infinite: How to Earn Valor
Not every activity in Halo infinite will reward you with Valor. If you look at a mission or side-activity on your map, hovering over it with your cursor will reveal whether you'll get Valor from it, and how much. Here are the three main ways to earn Valor in Halo Infinite's campaign:
- Propaganda Towers - Destroying these will reward you with 10 Valor apiece.
- Rescuing Teams of Marines - Distress signals can be found around the map. Saving these squads of Marines will give you 30 Valor.
- Purple Military Encampments - There are several main Banished encampments littered throughout Zeta Halo. They appear on the map as purple icons and include Riven Gate. You'll get 100 Valor for clearing these.
- Main Missions - By completing the main campaign missions you will accumulate a lot of Valor. This is generally because it leads you through main objectives where you'll destroy key Banished structures. i earned around 2000 Valor just by completing the campaign.
Fastest Way to Earn Valor
The best and fastest way to earn Valor is to complete the main story campaign. Don't worry too much about hoovering up side objectives as you go, because you will be dropped back onto Zeta Halo after the final campaign mission, allowing you to travel freely and earn Valor. Once you're at that point, focus on the purple icons on your map. they will reward you with 100 Valor each. Then, you should have unlocked the Wasp Flying Vehicle and the Scorpion Tank. Use these to clear up the UNSC distress signals, you'll find yourself overpowered with these vehicles in tow. Finally, if you need to unlock the last few Valor items, go around in the Wasp or a Banshee and shoot down Propaganda Towers.
