Once in a while a Skull comes along and punches you right in the face, giving you a big black eye in the process. Ironically, the Black Eye Skull doesn't actually do that. It's a fun little Skull that adds a little bit of challenge to the game in a way that doesn't take away from your enjoyment. Honestly, it's a fun little forker!

It is thus, with great pride and happiness that halfway through breaking down each of the vast assortment of Skulls in Halo Infinite that we stumbled upon this little baby. It ain't brutal like the Boom Skull, it isn't funny like the I Would Have Been Your Daddy Skull, but it sits in a gorgeously little spot right in the middle. Absolutely delicious! Let's get on with the guide...

What Is The Black Eye Skull In Halo Infinite?

The Black Eye Skull in Halo Infinite causes your shields to only recharge when you melee a foe. This is a pretty crazy system, as it means that you will need to be super heavy on the melee if you want to keep those shields in decent shape. It's also a lot of fun, if we're honest, opening up many opportunities for interesting combat situations. Seriously, it's a much-recommended Skull, this one!

Scan For The Skull To Locate It

You will want to, once facing the Waterfall, scan for the Skull. What this will do is give you an accurate signal as to where the cave is behind the waterfall, and thus make the next step easier. It's not necessary, per-se, but certainly makes things a lot easier.

Grappleshot Up to the Skull Cave

Once you have located it, use your sweet-as Grappleshot skills to pull yourself up into the cave at the back of the waterfall. This might take a few attempts as it is quite high up, and we recommend that you have upgraded your Grappleshot before attempting it. Alternatively, you can use a flying vehicle to get close, jump out, and grapple in.

Pick Up the Black Eye Skull

Once you are in the cave, you should crouch so that you'll fit and crawl into the opening. Once inside, grab the Black Eye Skull and enjoy!
