Web Requests Module

I am working on the Web Requests module in HTB Academy and am getting stumped pretty early on. On the 3rd page, HTTP Requests and Responses, there is a question at the bottom, “What is the HTTP method used while intercepting the request? (case-sensitive).” From what I can tell online, to figure this out I am supposed to go to BurpSuite. But how do I know to do this? This is my first module and so far it has never mentioned BurpSuite. I am brand new to this so I guess my question is two-fold:

  1. Did I miss something? How am I supposed to know to go to Burp Suite?
  2. Are we just supposed to know that? In which case, as a very beginner, are there some easier modules that might teach me more about this stuff before Web Requests?


There is no need to do this using Burp Suite. you can use cURL only to get all the needed information to answer the questions. even by opening the site using the IP they are given for example “” it will tell you in the page that you should do it in cURL.

Usually as a rule, use the tool given in each lesson/module if Burp-suite is not mentioned then most likely is not needed to complete the task. and use the tools & methods mentioned.

it should be very straight forward from here. but if you need help let me know.
good luck.
