Power-ups are gameplay items that enhance player traits for a duration. They are commonly featured in multiplayer maps in Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo 4, Halo 2: Anniversary, Halo 5: Guardians, and Halo Infinite. Power-ups can be added via Forge in Halo 3, Halo: Reach, Halo 4, Halo 2: Anniversary, and Halo 5: Guardians. They are also featured in the campaign of Halo: Combat Evolved and Halo 2. In Halo Infinite, power-ups act more like equipment; they can be stored in the player's inventory and activated at will.[1]

The following is a list of power-ups throughout the Halo first-person shooter titles.

  • Overshield - Strengthens the user's shielding systems significantly. (x3 in Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, and Halo: Reach and x2 in Halo 3 and Halo Infinite)
  • Active Camouflage - Makes the user invisible for 30 seconds, and for 45 seconds in Halo: Combat Evolved.
