How to find the Foundation collectibles in Halo Infinite

The second mission in Halo Infinite's campaign, Foundation, has four collectibles for players to track down. Here's where you can find them all.
Halo Infinite's campaign mode has finally been released and many players are sinking their teeth in the latest offering from developer 343 Industries. However, it has received plenty of criticism for the decision to make campaign missions non-replayable but a Microsoft representative confirmed to Polygon that it will work on fixing that issue.

This does make things difficult for players working on locating every single collectible available in-game. Nevertheless, those who have jumped into the game’s campaign mode will have come across the game’s second mission quest, Foundation, which has a few collectables for players to find.

In this guide, we have detailed all four Foundation collectibles available during this mission as well as how players can find them all.

Where to find the Foundation collectibles in Halo Infinite?

Below is every collectible you will be able to find during the Foundation mission in Halo Infinite. It's important to note that one of the collectibles will be added to your collection after completing a cutscene for one of the objectives.

Foundations Cowbell Skull

Players can find this collectible during the “The Weapon” objective however, it does require plenty of patience, dexterity and grappling as this collectible is quite out of reach.  Once players have eliminated a few Jackals and Grunts on the platform, use your Grappleshot and aim for one of the first two pillars to pull yourself up onto.

Once here, players will need to turn around to face the window hallway you had previously come from and look upwards to scan to uncover the Cowbell skull highlight. You will notice that it's resting on an unstable beam but using the Grappleshot once again and carefully jumping around the beam to reach the Cowbell Skull to grab.

UNSC Audio Log – Recovered Files: The Question

The next Foundation collectible can be acquired during the “Follow the Signal” objective. Unlike the Cowbell Skull collectible, this one is much easier to locate.

After picking up a Power Seed needed to charge up a light bridge, players can then retrieve data once they have successfully crossed the light bridge. This will activate a cutscene which once it has concluded, the first of two UNSC Audio Logs will be unlocked and added to your collection. Players can listen to the audio log, “The Question” by Dr. Halsey under Recovered Files.

Banished Audio Log – Cylix

The third Foundation collectible can be found during the “Reach the Surface” objective after players have safely ascended to the top platform in the Foundation. Here, you’ll be greeted by a group of Jackals and Grunts to eliminate but before leaving the top platform, quickly grab the Banished Audio Log - Cylix to add another collectible to your collection.

UNSC Audio Log - 01 Not My Fault

The final collectible to find in this mission, this UNSC Audio Log can be located during the “The Sniper” objective. Players will be tasked with finding yet another Power Seed to charge up an elevator, you will find an open door that will lead players into a fairly large room.

Continue down the bridge that runs through this room to find a Power Seed and the UNSC Audio Log. Make your way back to the elevator and place the Power Seed for the elevator to start working.

Those are all the collectibles players can find during the Foundation mission in Halo Infinite. We do hope this will save you time and patience in not having to create a new game save to replay the mission.
