What is a Stockpile match in Halo Infinite is something that many players are wondering about at the moment as they try to complete their weekly challenges for the first time.

For those looking to get their challenges done before the next refresh, here's a breakdown of what a Stockpile match is in Halo Infinite multiplayer.

What is a Stockpile Match in Halo Infinite?

At the time of writing, Stockpile is a game mode that only be played at random while queueing up for Big Team Battle.

Stockpile is played on Fragmentation, Highpower and Deadlock, and essentially tasks players with delivering Power Seeds that spawn on the map back to their base. Once players get a certain amount of Power Seeds, they score a point. Players can steal the enemy team's seeds to stagger their progress.

Unfortunately, while many players are getting weekly challenges specific to certain game modes (e.g. complete a stockpile match), there is no way at the moment to queue up for just those certain match types.

As stated by 343 Industries in their initial Welcome to the Halo Infinite MP Beta blog post on Nov. 15, they wanted to start with a "focused offering" to ensure healthy matchmaking and are monitoring all playlists in order to adjust them "as needed."
