Halo Infinite data-mined information exposes specifics on a secret game mode called ‘Tatanka,’ which appears to be a battle royale.
Halo Infinite has proven to be a difficult game to master. Its launch was historic, with 20 million people registered by the end of January, thanks in part to the game’s free-to-play concept.
Aside from its popularity, the most serious criticism levelled at the current instalment of the franchise has been its lack of content. The addition of a battle royale mode to the multiplayer options, on the other hand, might provide some much-needed variety.
According to new claims, Halo Infinite‘s battle royale mode will be a hybrid of several genres and battle royale principles. Infinite’s ambitious new mode, for example, combines multi-team and free-for-all gameplay with up to 100 players with conventional BR components like diminishing map zones.
Here is everything we know about the Halo Battle Royale Leak:

According to a popular Halo Infinite Twitter account InfiniteLeaks, the leaks are scripts from the actual game mode. The mode is dubbed “Tatanka.” InfiniteLeaks also revealed the following information:
- Duos/Quads multi-team
- 60-100 players
- Bots supported
- Shrinking containment zones
- Massive open-ended level
- Activities include Operations (missions), Capture (king of the hill, territories), Supply Run (escort resources), Destroy (attack specified zones), and Hoard (secure resources)
The most important takeaway from the above list is that Tatanka appears to merge aspects of Infinite’s story into a battle royale style. Forward operating bases (FOB) are locations in the campaign that serve as resupply points for ammo, grenades, weapons, and vehicles. These outposts are captured throughout the campaign by destroying the enemy forces that inhabit them, and they will presumably be used in the battle royale.
“Tatanka gear cache,” “Tatanka ammo pickup,” and “Tatanka weapon upgrade trunk” could all refer to FOB weapon pads, where players can win weapon upgrades and gear replenishment by killing and assisting other players.
Certain Affinity, the studio behind Halo 2’s acclaimed multiplayer, has been working on “Tatanka” for several years. “Tatanka” is a Lakota word that refers to a near-extinct buffalo as well as the renowned Sitting Bull’s first name. It also refers to a wrestler who won a 40-man battle royal event.
Neither 343 Industries nor Certain Affinity has revealed any specifics about the massively ambitious new mode.
