Welcome to the wide world of the Zeta Halo in Halo Infinite. Once Master Chief unlocks his first FOB, you’ll have access to a huge open-world area with multiple sub-objectives you can complete. There are fortresses full of enemies, squads of marines to rescue, and special High-Value Targets to hunt. Each area is packed with useful collectibles and finding them all can be tricky.
For this guide, we’re mostly focusing on the first large fortress — Ransom Keep. This Banished base is a scrapyard of UNSC equipment, including a Scorpion Tank locked up in the large facility. To disable the base, Master Chief will have to destroy all four silos, then sabotage the two scrapping machines while repelling constant Banished reinforcement. Before hunting all the collectibles in the area, I recommend clearing the area. Then you can freely explore in peace. The Audio Logs in Ransom Keep are especially tricky to find. They make a noisy beep, but you can still easily miss them.
