In Halo Infinite, there is a fusion coil. Do you know what it is? If you are a Halo Infinite player, you need to know about it. So, let’s find out about Fusion Coil in Halo Infinite here according to Halo Alpha wiki and Gamepur.
What is Fusion Coil?
According to Halo Alpha Wiki, a fusion coil is a United Nations Space Command ground container where it is used for compressed plasma. It is made mainly of glass and aluminum.
The Operation of Fusion Coil
As also explained on the Halo Alpha wiki, the fusion coil is the safest and most intelligent way to transport and save highly explosive compressed plasma energy. As explained earlier, the materials for making the containers are glass and aluminum. In a fusion coil, there is high voltage and radioactivity stored.
Even though there has not been a confirmation, but it seems that the fusion coil may be related to the UNSC Deuterium fusion reactor. It is also the same as the Covenant Plasma Battery, but it is able to be detonated with fewer shots.
Pyrotechnics of Fusion Coil
If there are several shots from any weapon, it is able to explode these volatile coils. In multiplayer, usually players try to lay an ambush for a hostile near a coil and they do that by tossing a Fragmentation Grenade to the coil when the enemy gets closer.
As an alternative, they are able to be pushed from above onto passing enemies, exploding on impact with the ground or used as anti-vehicle landmines at vehicle choke points. Players also have used them for Explosive Jumping and in Forge to create perpetual explosions.
The Appearances of Fusion Coil
Fusion Coil appears in some series of Halo games.
In Halo 2, you are able to find fusion coils on six Halo 2 multiplayer maps including Foundation, Ivory Tower, Headlong, Tombstone, Waterworks and Zanzibar. In the campaign, they are not seen.
In Halo 3, you are able to find fusion coils in the Halo 3 Beta, in the multiplayer maps namely High Ground and Valhalla. They can be seen in several other multiplayer maps and also in a few Campaign levels. In Forge, fusion coils feature prominently where players are able to place a large amount of coils on any location in a map and detonate them. An incident where a beta tester used them is described by a Bungie Weekly Update along with the Instant Respawn trick, to turn an Elephant into a satanic pinata.
In Halo 4, you are able to find fusion coils in all of the maps in Forge. If a player is killed by them, that player disintegrates as if they were hit by a Forerunner weapon. In the campaign, you can also find a forerunner type Fusion coil on the level Forerunner.
Tactics of Fusion Coil
As explained on Halo Alpha wiki that several people may not think much about using fusion coils as an effective strategy. However, on Forge, fusion coils are good trap items. If there is a player near one that you see, you can shoot the coil. By doing it, it will be able to weaken the player or kill him depending on the amount of coils available nearby.
It is important for you to note that you have to be careful if the coils are near you. If you blow one up, it will blow up others and it can cause a chain reaction. If you find it in Campaign, you have to stick to Multiplayer tactics for there is not much difference. In Forge, if a choke point is found by you, often it is a good idea for you to place fusion coils in it and then detonate them with a long range weapon.
