In this guide, you will come to know why the new Cindershot is funky in Halo Infinite.
The Backdraft Cinder Shot is very interesting; it can 1 shot a Spartan due to its ‘Firework’ styled explosion. This ‘Firework’ Explosion occurs after the initial blast and will cause damage to enemies near it for 1 second.
You want the projectile to bounce at least one to produce the ‘firework’ explosion. If you hit it directly, it will do significantly less damage and not cause the ‘firework’ effect.
The projects also detonate when hitting the ground; this example shows that projectiles will continue to bounce until they hit the floor.
