Halo Infinite: How To Use The UNSC Hydra

The Hydra carries a maximum capacity of six missiles, allowing you to lock onto enemy vehicles and Spartans too. With its two modes, you can easily change between fast rocket and homing options with the press of a button.

It's a little difficult to lock onto enemy Spartans, especially from afar. So it's best to use the Hydra in close-combat scenarios in the dumb-fire mode if you're attempting to take out your foes.

It's not as strong as the SNPKr, as the launcher will need to fire 3/4 missiles to remove an enemy. Due to its subdued damage, we'd recommend utilising the Hydra to target vehicles rather than enemies, especially in Big Team Battles.

Though it's not the best launcher, the Hydra is still great against vehicles and big groups of people. If you're finding the Halo Infinite's gameplay a little wonky, check out our preferred controller and mouse/keyboard settings.
