Halo Infinite Shock Chain Guide: How to Use It

Shock Chain is a mechanic that comes with the new electric weapons of Halo Infinite, but it can be a bit confusing to understand.

One of the more unique new elements to Halo Infinite is what's known as a Shock Chain, which players might see pop up during a match. If you're having trouble figuring out what a Shock Chain is, or how to activate it, we're here to help. 

How to Use a Shock Chain in Halo Infinite


Essentially a Shock Chain occurs when you electrocute kill multiple enemies at once by electrocuting them. The two main ways of this happening is by using the Shock Rifle or Dynamo Grenades, both of which are electricity-based. 

Dynamo Grenades are easier to create a Shock Chain with because they shoot electricity out over a wide area. The Shock Rifle, on the other hand, will spring electricity to enemies that are in close proximity to the one you hit.

The main thing to keep in mind with a Shock Chain is that enemies need to be grouped close to each other in order for it to really work. This means you're better off trying to get a Shock Chain in tight spaces and corridors, rather than out in the open. 

The other catch is that you might have trouble killing enemies at full health with just electricity. Because of this, you might want to use regular weapons or grenades, then quickly switch to your Shock Rifle or Dynamo Grenades.

One tactic is to throw a Frag Grenade in the middle of a group of enemies which will lower their shields, then use your Shock Rifle to create a chain and kill the group. If you're using electric weapons a lot, you're bound to get a Shock Chain at least a few times.
