Extraction Overview

Extraction is an objective-based game mode that was introduced to Halo over a decade ago in Halo 4, where Spartan teams were tasked with an asset retrieval mission. In Halo 4, players used a quantum marker tool to designate slipspace crates for extraction. In Halo Infinite, this beloved mode has a new coat of paint with the latest UNSC and Personal AI tech.

The mode goes as follows:

  • A neutral Extraction Site appears on the map, where players must enter the site and plant their Extraction Device (all players have one) within its radius to begin the process of Extraction.
  • Once an Extraction Device is planted, it is owned by that player and their team, and a timer will begin counting down to Extraction.
  • Enemy players can interrupt the Extraction process, and even convert it to their team by interacting with the Extraction Device.
  • If the opposing team successfully converts the Extraction Device, then the countdown timer will reset and the battle for that Site will continue until there is a successful Extraction.
  • Whichever team successfully completes the Extraction process earns a point, after which a new neutral Extraction Site will appear elsewhere on the map.

Simply put: players must deploy and protect Extraction Sites at different locations on the map to score points, the team with the most points wins.

If you listen closely to the trailer, when the spartan starts the extraction process it says "extracting relics". I wonder if that is supposed to go with the story or if it means nothing.
