[CMPS]                          Campaign Skull Guide
===============================================================================

Skulls are an interesting addition to Halo 3 and there are 14 skulls hidden
throughout the campaign. Each skull picked up will unlock a cheat that you can
use to modify game play. Here's some general information about the skulls:

  Skulls can be found on normal difficulty and above, and in some cases
  there may be more than 1 skull in a level.

  There are gold and silver skulls. Gold skulls give you achievements and
  add a meta game multiplier whilst the silver skulls do not.

  Skulls can be picked up in single or co-op mode and both players will
  receive the achievement.

  Each skull you pick up will alter the game experience in its own unique
  way. Some will make it more challenging, others will cause enemies to behave
  differently and some alter game play physics. Its up to you to try each one
  out and decide which ones you like to play with!

  Unlike the skulls present in Halo 2, the skulls will not activate on
  pickup. To activate the skulls you need to go into the skull section by
  pressing the "X" button whilst in the campaign menu.

===============================================================================

Skull 1: Blind

Effect: Removes the HUD,status indicators, guns etc.

Mission sub-chapter: Walk it Off

From the start of the level,work your way through the level as normal, follow
the river downstream and mow your way through 3 phantom-loads of brutes and
grunts until you reach the waterfall. When you are at the waterfall, follow the
cliff around to the right you should see it on the ground in plain sight... I
guess they forgot to hide this one.

Skull 2: Iron

Effect: Makes gameplay so that Checkpoints don't count. In single player, if
you die at anytime you will have to restart the level. In co-operative mode,
the death of one player will cause all players to reset to the previously
obtained checkpoint

Mission sub-chapter: Quid Pro Quo

In the final area of the level, where you need to rescue Sgt. Johnson and the
marines from the energy prison. After you cross the bridge, continue ahead and
instead of turning left to go to the prison go straight continue forward and
jump up on a platform to the right. Then up again to a ledge on the large
building. Follow this walkway all the way around to the left at the very end,
you will find the skull in a cramped, dark corner.

Skull 1: Black Eye

Effect: Shields don't recharge and you must melee enemies to get them back.

When you start the mission, instead of going down the stairs as you are
supposed to jump past them and go up the stairs to a red, locked door. Next to
the door you should see a red object. jump on it, then face the left wall and
jump onto one of the pipes here. Now look back into the room and up, you should
see a fairly thick,long grey pipe above you. Jump onto this and run along it
the length of the room, back to above the start area, here you should find the
skull.

Effect: Headshots on grunts will cause an explosion of confetti and cheering.

Mission sub-chapter: Gift With Purchase

On the way to the barracks you need to jump down a pipe. In this room you will
see smaller pipes on either side of the room, usually complete with bugger
covenant. At the end of this room you need to jump down again into a large
circular room. To get the skull you need to jump , but hold back on the
controller. You should land in a room, just under the one you were in, the
skull should be here.

Grab a warthog and go through the level as normal until you reach the first
blue energy shield that blocks your entrance to the tunnel. Clear the area and
disable the shield. Drive through to the next area and hop out. Look to your
left, you should see something that looks like a yellow pipeline. When you see
this, Jump over the left hand railing of the bridge and walk beneath it until
you see the supports for the pipleine. In the area where the pipelines supports
are positioned over the cliff, jump onto the closest support to the tunnel you
came out of. From here you should see the skull on a platform behind the cliff
to the left. Jump over and grab it.

===============================================================================

Skull 1: Catch

Effect: Everyone throws and drops more grenades

Mission sub-chapter: Ghost Town

In the area with the first AA wraith, down on the beach jump onto the circular
building closest to the far wall. You may need to grenade jump or use a warthog
to jump up. The skull should be there.

o~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~o
NOTE: After destroying the AA wraith, a covenant dropship will drop another 
wraith on the platform outside the door that exits the area. DO NOT destroy it.
Destroying the wraith appears to de-spawn the skull making it impossible to
collect.

Skull 1: Fog

Effect: You will have no radar

Mission sub-chapter: It Followed me Home

At the very start of the level, you will head down from the hill with the
anti-air battery that you destroyed in the previous mission into what looks
like a small, flood-infested commercial area. As you are coming down the hill
you should see a fence on the left, another, smaller A-A turret in fornt of you
to the right and a building directly behind it. As we move into the area focus
on the top of the building. You should see a single flood form appear and jump
from the building over the fence to your left. This enemy has the skull. Make
sure you hit it as it jumps and it should drop it so you can pick it up. If
not, just restart the level and try again.

usual amount of ammo

After the 2 pelican crash sites and the phantom crash site, continue on with
the level and head to the right where there is what appears to be a bridge
overlooking this small area. Destroy the 2 ghosts in this area and against the
back wall to the left from where you entered you should find a stone ramp
leading up to the bridge. Once you are on the bridge head as far as you can
along the bridge back towards the way we came into the area. The skull is on
the final support beam here. Use a grenade jump to get in there and the skull
is yours!

Skull 2: Cowbell

Effect: Explosions are more powerful

Mission sub-chapter: Real Men Don't Read Maps

After you kill the scarab, go back to the bunker near it on the beach. Grab a
grav lift - you NEED this to get it. Move on with the level up the spire and
inside the structure. Continue through the structure until you get to the
second downwards-sloping narrow hallway. on the right of the room you should
see small, green lights. If you look up to the left above the door at the
bottom of the room, you should see a series of platforms. Place the grav lift
around the 5th light on the floor from the foot of the ramp. Using the grav
lift jump up to the highest platform on the left, you should see it there.

===============================================================================

Skull 1: Thunderstorm

Effect: Transforms all enemies into their most powerful versions.

Mission sub-chapter: If You Want It Done Right

After you have disabled the first tower and get the call to disable the 2nd
one, head down to the drop zone and grab a hornet. make your way to the next
area to destroy the covenant fortifications, about 1/2 way there you should see
another structure built high up into the cliff on the right. Fly up to this
structure and look inside for the skull.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Skull 2: I Would Have Been Your Daddy

Effect: Gives allies/enemies additional dialogue

Mission sub-chapter: Revelation

Much like its equivalent in Halo 2, this skull is by far the most difficult to
obtain. After the cut scene where we see what becomes of the Prophet of Truth,
clear the flood from the area all the way back to the elevator, this will make
things a lot easier. From the elevator look back down the corridor to where you
encountered Truth,  look above it. You should see a series of glowing blue
rings suspended above the walkway. There are 7 rings in all. Lets name the one
closest to the elevator ring 1 and the one at the platform with the Prophet of
Truth ring 7, the ones between will be 2-6 respectively. The key to this skull
is to jump through several of these rings in a specific order to spawn it. Here
it is:

4 6 5 4 5 3 4

Once you have jumped through all the rings IN ORDER head back to the Platform
with Truth and you should see the skull sitting there. Enjoy!

clear it of baddies and then jump through the rings in the order above.

[ACT8]                                Cortana
===============================================================================

Skull 1: Tilt

Effect: Enemy resistances are modified

Mission sub-chapter: Rampant

About 1/3 of the way into the level you should reach a large circular room,
which most resembles the interior of a covenant ship (or whats left of one). in
this room you need to look around for a lichen-like growth on the walls. Using
these growths, you are able to climb up above the room and claim the skull.

- IMAGE: ----------------------------------------------------------------------
http://media.playhaven.com/cmx6HSOlimG0gSmQjaZtxQ/inline/90182622-Full.jpg

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Climb up the lichens and onto the roof of the covenant structure for the
skull.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Skull 2: ???

Effect: No effect

Mission sub-chapter: Rampant

Just before you reach Cortana, you should make your way into a huge, open
circular room with some exposed power cores (Which we will blow up later in the
level). At this point, you should notice that around the edges of the room are
slanted, diagonal supports. Jump on to one of these, and climb to the top of
it, then grenade jump up onto the ledge above. After you get up, walk around
the circular area until you reach a large purple platform that juts out into
the room. The skull is on the right side of the platform here.

Skull 1: Mythic

Effect: Doubles enemy health

Mission sub-chapter: Full Circle

From the start of the level head from the pelican crash site and through the
tunnel. Shortly after you enter there should be a path leading to the right,
make your way down here and round the corner to find the skull.

[MUPS]                           Multiplayer Skulls
===============================================================================

Thanks to the recent release of the Mythic map-pack and the freshly released
Halo 3:ODST, Bungie has given players some additional motivation to play around
in the new multiplayer maps in Forge mode by hiding skulls in them. The maps
with skulls included are the formerly released Sandbox, Assembly and Orbital. A
further three maps have been just added to Halo 3 with the release of ODST with
another three skulls to find. These maps are entitled Longshore, Heretic and
Citadel.

These skulls are a little different from the campaign skulls as they do not
unlock cheats for use in the main game. They each will unlock an achievement
once found and once all 6 skulls have been found, payers will unlock one of the
vidmaster challenges, required to unlock a set of the fabled Recon armor.

===============================================================================
[MPM1]                                Assembly
===============================================================================

Assembly is a fairly small map centered around what looks to be some kind of
power core. It is this central structure that is hiding the elusive Assembly
skull. From the central building, look for a large diagonal support branching
off from the main building, there are two of these. These structures will have
an accompanying black and purple cable dangling below them. The skull is hidden
on top of the cable, inside the one of the diagonal protrusions.

===============================================================================
[MPM2]                                Citadel
===============================================================================

The Citadel skull is probably the best hidden of the ODST included maps and can
be quite difficult to spot. First head for the small corridor that has the
overshield. Follow the corridor to the end, you should see a pair of large blue
triangles on the wall. At this point use the monitor to fly up, you should see
a gap in the ceiling, the skull is sitting on top of a ledge inside the gap
just behind the light here. Use the monitor to build a stack of crates, then
jump up and grab it.

===============================================================================
[MPM3]                               Heretic
===============================================================================

This skull is a fairly easy one to find. At the top, on either side of the room
are what look to be sets of air vents. You want to get up to the platform with
the sword and look to the side with the window looking out to a covenant ship.
From here look at the right-hand air vent and using the monitor, place a grav
lift on the platform below. Switch to your main multiplayer character and hold
down the right button as you go up the grav lift to pick up the Heretic Skull.

 Using the monitor, put a gravlift on the platform below it. Use the grav lift
to jump up and grab the skull.

o~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~o
NOTE: An alternate way to pick up the skull, much easier than the bove method
is to use the monitor to fly up above the skull. Switch to the multiplayer 
character and hold down the use button, you will grab it as you drop to the 
floor.

===============================================================================

Make your way to the very left side of the map and look for the red fish
poster. Next to it you will see what looks to be an air conditioning duct. The
skull is hidden between this and the wall. To obtain it, use the monitor to
build a tower out of various crates until using your multiplayer character you
can jump across and grab it.

===============================================================================

The orbital skull is found in the only real open part of the level. It is
sitting on a high up ledge above the only cliff in the level. To get to it, use
the monitor to fly up to the top of the room and place a exit teleporter on the
platform next to it. Head back down to the floor and place a sender teleporter
node. Head through the teleporter and crouch to move forward and claim the
Orbital skull.

This skull can be a little difficult. It is outside the safe area of play, well
beyond the beacons highlighting the boundary of the level. The skull itself is
at the bottom of the wall in the distance between the two towers closest to the
setting sun. To get it you will need to use the monitor to construct a safe
passage all the way out to the wall using any hollow objects you can. If you
have too much trouble, look on Bungie.com for a downloadable map capable of
getting you there in 2 seconds flat!

objects at your disposal.

===============================================================================

As well as unlocking some cool effects in game and giving us a good time
hunting for them collecting the skulls will also unlock a special amour class
called Hayubusa for use in multiplayer modes. Hayabusa is of course a reference
to the ninja character of the same name from the Dead or Alive fighting series,
or from his recent solo effort in Ninja Gaiden). Heres the order of the
skull-related unlocks:

1. Hayabusa Chest - collect 5 skulls

2. Hayabusa Shoulders - collect 9 skulls

3. Hayabusa Helmet - collect 13 skulls

4. Katana - to unlock this you must finish the game on Legendary, collect all
the hidden skulls and complete all the achievements.


Multiplayer skulls will each unlock an achievement when found. Once all six
have been acquired, players will be rewarded with the vidmaster achievement:
Brainpan. Along with the other six vidmaster achievements, players will be
able to unlock a new armor set for use in multiplayer - Recon.
