Halo Infinite’s Spartan Cores are arguably the most important resource in Halo Infinite. These collectibles are vital as they allow you to upgrade Master Chief’s gear, which are five tools that can give him the edge in combat.
As we have spent some time with the game, we have been able to find all of the Halo Infinite gear and equipment locations and also highlight some of Halo Infinite’s best upgrades for that gear, but to actually obtain them, you’re gonna need some Cores. Spartan Cores can be found in linear missions and in the open world so you will have to properly scour every level and corner of the Zeta Halo Ring to collect them all.
Read on for more details about Halo Infinite’s Spartan Cores, including how many of them are scattered around the game. On top of that, we will have the Halo Infinite Spartan Core locations, showcasing where you can find them.
