Fall Out Banished.

Valor is an in-game currency that allows you to access a long list of unlocks in Halo Infinite while you're doing the main campaign.

As you fight against the Banished in the story missions, you'll be rewarded with Valor for your deeds, which can then be spent to unlock weapons, vehicles and more. It's vital to know the best way to obtain this as early as possible to get the most out of your expeditions.

This page explains all Valor sources list in Halo Infinite, as well as the complete Valor unlocks list so you can get your hands on the Wasp.

Valor in Halo Infinite explained and Valor sources list

Valor isn't a rare currency in the purest sense of the word, but it doesn't grow on trees either. Knowing when and where you can expect to find it is key to save up time, especially if you're looking for an specific upgrade.

In order to unlock this feature, you need to play the campaign until you the end of the second mission. Once the third mission rolls in, you'll receive Valor for the first time, and the mechanic will automatically unlock.

The Valor sources in Halo Infinite are as follows:

  • Main story missions (~350 Valor)
  • Destroying Banished facilities (100 Valor)
  • Saving UNSC marine squads (30 Valor)
  • Destroying Banished Propaganda Towers (10 Valor)
  • Found in containers or chests in Zeta Halo

These are all the existing Valor sources to date - luckily there are plenty of them, which allows you to diversify and avoid having to grind a specific activity or objective to get them. But if you want to get the most amount as quickly as possible, jump into the next section.

How to get Valor fast in Halo Infinite

By far the best way to get Valor fast in Halo Infinite is to play the main story missions.

Completing the second mission of Halo Infinite, for example, granted us 350 Valor, which is a substantial amount. It's by far the most effective way, but of course, it's the most time demanding depending on the mission.

We recommend to destroy Banished facilities as you're traveling from point A to B in Zeta Halo. These are in second place in terms of profitability, and you'll likely to stumble upon them without deviating too much from the main course.

In addition, you can access Zeta Halo after finishing the campaign, so you'll be able to continue unlocking stuff in the FOB menu.

Speaking of which, let's see what's in store in terms of Valor unlocks.

Halo Infinite Valor unlocks list

Valor is used to unlock weapons, vehicles and fire support from Marines. These unlocks can be done via the FOB menu.

It's worth noting that you don't actually have to purchase each item individually - instead, once you meet the required amount, the item will unlock automatically. This means that if you unlock something that requires 1000 Valor, you will still have those 1000, so there's no loss.

How to get the Wasp in Halo Infinite

The Wasp is by far one of the best unlocks you can obtain with Valor - and yes, this is actually the only way to access the Wasp in Halo Infinite.

In order to obtain the Wasp in Halo Infinite, you need to obtain 2,600 Valor.

This process will take you a long time, so don't expect to have the Wasp right away. That being said, it's definitely worth the effort - the Wasp is one of the best ways to move around Zeta Halo, especially if you're on the hunt for Mjolnir Armor Lockers and Spartan Cores.

Elsewhere, Halo Infinite's campaign missions won't be replayable. Again, this is intended to change - and fingers crossed that feature and co-op will arrive at the same time, allowing you to replay the entire game with a friend, and pick up any missing skull locations while you're there.

Best of luck gathering Valor!
