Halo Infinite Season 2 - All new game modes

Halo Infinite Season 2 is finally around the corner, and three new game modes have been announced for the Lone Wolves-themed content. King of the Hill has been the most anticipated for some time, but two surprise additions also made the cut.

Along with the three new modes that have been outlined in full detail, new variants will also arrive with the second season. These variants will be released for the new modes as well as the game modes that have already existed since Season 1. Of all the new additions, Last Spartan Standing may garner the most attention.

Each new game mode headed to Halo Infinite Season 2

In a new blog post for Halo Infinite Season 2, the three new game modes were outlined starting with King of the Hill. This mode is no surprise and is a classic to the franchise, but some changes have been made to the overall ruleset. Anyone who wants the classic rules can still do so in the custom games menu.

Game mode #1 - King of the Hill

When the match begins, there is a neutral zone that must be captured by either team. When one side gets to the zone, they will begin earning one point per second until they reach full points. Reaching full points will fill the capture bar and effectively make that hill a point for the winning team.

The zone will then move to a new location where both teams will fight for control once again. Of course, standing in a zone with both teams will make the area hotly contested and stop points gains.

Game mode #2 - Land Grab

Land Grab is a new spin on the Control mode for Season 2. This mode also spawns three neutral zones on the map, but once one is captured, it is locked. Capturing a single zone will award the team 1 point. Once all three zones are captured on the map, there will be an intermission, and three new neutral zones will spawn.

Getting one point sounds low, but the game mode moves fast. Teams will need to earn 11 points in total to earn a victory. If both teams are only one point away from winning, then only one zone will spawn, making the action far more intense.

Game mode #3 - Last Spartan Standing

When rumors appeared for a Battle Royale in Halo Infinite Season 2, this is likely the mode that leaked. In Last Spartan Standing, 12 players will be placed on a Big Team Battle map for a free-for-all match. Players will load in with fixed loadouts.

Everyone has a set amount of lives, and XP can be earned to level up to some degree and get new equipment. Weapons will be scattered in drops, and the final Spartan standing will win the game.

Those are all the main game modes that you can expect in Halo Infinite Season 2! The new Season will release on May 3, 2022. For more coverage, make sure to check out the rest of our dedicated Halo section.
