Easter eggs are a time-honoured tradition in the Halo videogame series. From Sgt. Johnson giving an Elite a big ol’ hug in Halo: Combat Evolved’s Legendary ending cutscene, to the secret grunts that have been spotted as recently as Halo 5: Guardians, 343 Industries and Bungie before it have made sure to hide plenty of secrets in their games over the years.
Now, in Halo Infinite, the tradition is set to continue. After all, you can’t have the full new-gen Halo experience without a few oddities littered about here and there. Halo Infinite’s preview build has already paid homage to Craig – the Brute who became a meme after 2020s Xbox Games Showcase footage introduced us to him – with a pretty sweet tour set up on top of The Tower.
But will Craig survive through to the final build of Halo Infinite? And just where are the Halo Infinite easter egg locations? Well, if you read on then you’ll be sure to discover where 343 is stashing the goods. However, it may take some time for every Halo Infinite easter egg to be found – after all, if they were easy to track down then the studio wouldn’t be doing its job right.
With that said, here are all the Halo Infinite easter egg locations we know of so far, including Craig’s shrine from the preview build.
Halo Infinite easter egg locations – campaign
Below you’ll find any Halo Infinite easter egg locations that have been discovered, be they in its campaign preview build, the final build, or in its multiplayer mode.
Halo Infinite Pilot doll easter egg location
On what could very well be Zeta Halo’s tallest point lives a small, inflatable version of the Echo 216 Pilot. Nobody knows how he managed to find his way up there, though we reckon it was a tiny inflatable Pelican. Alongside the Pilot you’ll also find important survival supplies such as an oxygen tank, a water canister, and a tiny camping seat so he can keep a lookout for the Halo Infinite skull locations in comfort.
The mountain is very much traversable by foot, though we’d always recommend calling in a WASP or heading for a Halo Infinite Banshee location in order to save time and effort.
Halo Infinite Forerunner mural location
Should you find yourself all the way at the southernmost area of the map, you may stumble across some sort of Forerunner mural. According to the Circular Forerunner alphabet, the symbols translate as the letters ‘J’ and ‘H’.
Whether or not this is meant to be an acronym (if the Forerunners even used acronyms), or part of a broader secret yet to be discovered remains unseen.
Halo Infinite Craig easter egg location
Originally discovered during Halo Infinite’s preview build, this Halo Infinite easter egg location requires a little bit of finesse to get to if you’re without access to either a Banshee or a WASP.
By scaling The Tower all the way to its pinnacle – which requires the reduced Grappleshot cooldown upgrade if you’re on foot – you’ll happen upon a slick stage setup celebrating Craig the Brute’s 2560 tour of Zeta Halo. Alongside this is a vinyl record or Craig’s greatest hits, including such classics as ‘I smile inside’, ‘My mom used to love me’, and the seminal ‘I can’t grow a beard’.
Oh, and if you hop up to the platform just behind Craig’s shrine, you’ll happen upon one of the Halo Infinite skull locations.
