New Halo Infinite modes shown off before Season 2 release, featuring return of fan favorite King of the Hill and more

Halo Infinite Season 2 is quickly approaching and coming with it are new game modes King of the Hill, Land Grab, and Last Spartan Standing.

In a writeup on Halo Waypoint, these modes are described in detail.

King of the Hill

“You know how the game is played, but there’s a little bit of a twist to this one. A neutral hill spawns on the map and two teams battle it out to control the hill and earn points. When a player enters the hill uncontested, it is captured and begins earning 1 point per second into a capture bar. When a team’s capture bar is full, they score 1 point and a new hill spawns somewhere else on the map.”

Land Grab

“At the start of the match, there are 3 neutral zones around the map. When a player captures a zone, it is locked and gives their team 1 point. When all zones are captured, there is an intermission before 3 new neutral zones spawn. The first team to score 11 points wins.”

Last Spartan Standing

“Last Spartan Standing is based around the Lone Wolves theme of Season 2.

In this free-for-all experience, 12 players spawn on Big Team Battle maps with a confined loadout and 5 respawns. Once a player runs out of respawns and can no longer participate, they can either spectate or leave the match without penalty.

If a player gets a kill in the match, they can upgrade to a different weapon—something players of “Escalation Slayer” will no doubt be familiar with. The match ends when there is just one Spartan left standing.”
