Deep into the second region of the Zeta Halo, you’ll find two more Banished fortresses — these two locations are found in the area around the Excavation Site, one of your main missions. The Armory of Reckoning and the Horn of Abolition are complex facilities packed with enemies and 5 collectibles each. If you’re hunting for everything in the game, you’ll have to stop at these locations eventually. And you’ll earn +100 Valor for each one, inching you closer to finally unlocking the Wasp at your FOBs. That flying machine is basically required to clear up the open world activities.

How To Find All Collectibles | Skulls, Audio Logs, Spartan Cores & Armor Lockers
There are multiple types of collectibles in Halo Infinite. Here’s a quick rundown.
- Skulls: Hidden cheats. Find a skull to unlock the corresponding cheat and activate it in the Campaign menu.
- Audio Logs: Audio Logs come in three types — UNSC, Spartan, and Banished. They made a beeping noise when you’re close.
- Spartan Cores: Singleplayer collectibles that are used to unlock Suit Upgrades.
- Armor Lockers: Containers that unlock customization armor for multiplayer.
Armory of Reckoning
Banished Audio Log: In a prison cell built into the rock wall in the northeast corner of the base. Blast the generator for the forcefield and you’ll find the audio log in the back of the room where the marines are being held.
Banished Audio Log: Inside the central armory of the base, near the holographic weapon blueprint. You’ll enter this room from below when using the tunnels gravity lift.
Spartan Core: To the right of the underground ammo manufacturing device, in the tunnels accessible near the southeast wall.
UNSC Audio Log: In a ravine crash site to the northeast of the base. On the map, you’ll see a small road going northeast from the center of the base — this road leads to the crash site.
UNSC Audio Log: Behind the large building in the northwest section of the base. There’s a crashed Warthog with the log inside.
Horn of Abolition
Banished Audio Log: Inside the main control room with the terminal that unlocks the rest of the doors in the facility. It’s the 2-story building along the western wall.
Banished Audio Log: In the back-left corner of the large comm building up the hill. Use the back entrance to the command chamber with the turrets — you’ll find it next to the weapon lockers.
Spartan Core: There’s a partially buried Banished building in the southwest edge of the base. Enter through the rooftop to drop down and grab this core.
UNSC Audio Log: Check the top of the tall mountain to the southeast of the comm base.
UNSC Audio Log: Found on the path around the back of the front gates, outside the base complex, near the southeast corner.
