How To Use The Stalker Rifle in Halo Infinite

The Stalker Rifle runs on energy and is capable of shooting powerful pulses. While its fire rate is relatively slow, the shots themselves are highly damaging and are capable of downing a Spartan in a few hits


On average, you can kill your foes with three headshots or five body shots, making it one of the strongest weapons in the game. Its recoil is almost non-existent, making it perfect for longshots. Make the most out of the Stalker Rifle's scope, which allows you to zoom in twice for precise hits, but make sure not to camp with it. Stationary snipers die fast in Halo.

However, be aware not to overuse the sniper. You can only shoot up to 7 shots before the Stalker Rifle needs to cool down, and this process takes time. Couple the long-range weapon with a close-quarters secondary, such as the Bulldog CQS48 or the explosive UNSC Hydra to quickly switch to.

Make use of the Stalker Rifle's sniping qualities in Big Team Battles. It's slow but powerful, so make sure you handle it with care!
