Halo Infinite Multiplayer Has Some Hidden Modes on PC

Halo Infinite's multiplayer mode has some hidden modes on PC, which seem only to be accessible if you boot up the game in offline mode.

As spotted by Reddit user u/WickedSoldier991, Halo Infinite appears to include 14 additional multiplayer game modes as yet unavailable in the main online game, including unreleased Arena, Fiesta, Ranked and Tactical mode.

Players aren't typically able to access the hidden modes unless they launch the game in offline mode. However, as WickedSoldier991 points out that, once discovered, each of the modes can then be saved so that you can access them yourself when online at a later point.

As standard, Infinite's multiplayer mode currently has 17 different playable modes including the likes of Slayer, Oddball, and Capture the Flag. As well as bringing that total up to 31 different multiplayer picks, the secret additional modes include some brand new ways to play as well.

As per PC Gamer, one of the most interesting modes to come from the hidden list is Attrition. In the new mode, players will find that each team is given a limited number of respawns, while additional features such as revives and a Battle Royale Style closing circle are also said to be present. A full list of the hidden modes can be found below:

A Full List of Hidden Offline Modes:

  • Arena: Attrition
  • Arena: Attrition Dodgeball
  • Arena: Elimination
  • Fiesta: Attrition
  • Fiesta: CTF
  • Fiesta: One Flag CTF
  • Fiesta: Strongholds
  • Ranked: Elimination
  • Ranked: One Flag
  • Tactical: Slayer
  • Tactical: Slayer Commandos
  • Tactical: Slayer Manglers
  • Tactical: Slayer Sidekicks
  • Tactical: Slayer Stalker Rifles

At present, it seems that the modes can only be accessed on PC and not on Xbox. While it's likely that 343 didn't intend for players to find the modes at this point, the studio has recently been dealing with a number of other issues. As Halo Infinite's launch proper grows ever nearer, the studio has been hard at work tweaking the game's controversial progression system as well as addressing fans' complaints regarding an influx of cheaters in the game.
