As usual, we don't want to spoil the Boom Skull's location in the thumbnail, do we? Oh, and as usual, there's a lot to get into in this article. A lot to breakdown. The Boom Skull is, much like the Mythic Skull, rather hidden from view, but not necessarily very hard to discover. Halo Infinite is a massive game (in fact, it was originally going to be as big as Breath of the Wild!), so even if things are easy to collect, if they are difficult to see then they are almost impossible to find.

That's where we come in, of course. Guides, tips and tricks are all critical to getting the best you can out of Halo Infinite, being it your goal to collect all of the skulls in the game, or to complete a fantastic LASO Playthrough. You will also want to prepare yourself for the potential story DLC by getting as good at the game as possible, and what better way is there than collecting Skulls? So let's dive in...

What is the Boom Skull in Halo Infinite?

The Boom Skull doubles the radius of explosions in Halo Infinite. So, yes, the Boom Skull's name is actually a very relevant one in this case. Now, this can be both a good and a bad thing for you when equipped. On the one hand, when you throw a grenade or blow something up it will cause double the damage. On the other hand, though, you will be far more vulnerable to explosions created by your opponent. Choose your poison...

How to Get the Boom Skull in Halo Infinite

Following are a series of tasks required to find and collect the Boom Skull in Halo Infinite. The Boom Skull is, in-fact, a missable skull, so you need to pay a lot of attention to what we're about to tell you. Let's dive in...

Start Mission 1 - Banished Warship Gbraakon

You need to begin the game from the very start, Mission 1, where you need to infiltrate and explore a Banished Warship that appears after the Pilot finds Chief.

Take the Elevator Up

As you are exploring the ship, take the elevator all the way up to the top and fight the five Jackyls that fill the room. This shouldn't be too hard (well, it is the very start of the game), and you now need to head into the next room.

Take Out the Enemies

In the following room, players will need to kill the various Brutes and Grunts so that they can safely find the Boom Skull. Once they are defeated, return to the entry of the room (where you came in) and look back as if you were walking into the room again for the first time.

Scan the Room

Use your scanner to see where the Skull is. You will see that it is on a little platform up to the right of the entry door, hidden from players' direct view.

Ride Up the Elevator and Collect

As we mentioned, the skull is on the second level, to the right of the door. Jump onto the second level, look up to the right and scan if you haven't already. Ride the little elevator thingy up to wards the skull and collect the Boom Skull from the small alcove.

So, we just showed you where and how to get the Boom Skull, but visual representations are also great, so here's a video guide from good ol' 360GameTV over on YouTube to help you out...
