  • Infinte Camo

    After getting the envy skull go through a checkpoint while in active cammo mode. To be safe use "reset to last checkpoint" so you can check if you did it right. Save and quit; then turn off the xbox to remove the envy mode. When you reload your file you will find yourself with unlimited camo.

  • Overloading objects on the map

    It is possible to overload certain objects in many of the Halo 2 Multiplayer Maps. By overloading I mean removing it from the map altogether. You can overload most anything that is not actually connected to the map itself. Please note that it seems that you will need at least 8 others for this to work. The easiest example is in Zanzibar. There is a bridge that you can knock down to easily get to the sword on the large spinning wheel. Knock the bridge down and run to the end where it is squared off. You and all your teammates should bunch up as close as possible in the corner and look straight down at your feet. Make sure everyone is looking down and the bridge should overload and disappear. It will be gone for the remainder of the game/round. You can also use this overloading glitch on Midship(on the floating platform) and Headlong(there are two places in Headlong...the hanging construction beam and the hanging platform right next to the beam....however you may need around 12 others to overload that platform). These are the ones I have seen myself but there may be others in other maps so good luck hunting!!

  • Skip tough Brute battle before the end boss

    When you are flying around in the Banshee during the final level when you are giving support to your ally. You can skip directly to the final boss sequence if you are still in the Banshee after te door gets blown open. Fly to the right of the control centre building and aim towards the bottom right and if you fly close enough you should get a white screen indicating that you have started the cutscene. When it's over you will be at the final boss without fighting your way to him.

  • Unlimited Sword Ammo

    You can do this in any two-part Campaign missions (i.e. Outskirts and Metropolis). If you finish the first level of the two-part mission with a sword with no ammo, you'll start the next level with a sword that has unlimited ammo. Though the sword doesn't show up when you arm it, it still makes all of the sound effects and acts exactly like a normal sword.

Easter Eggs

  • Angry Mode

    When you are the Master Chief trying to recover the index from the Prophet of Truth on the Covenant Holy City go until you reach the first outdoor area with dirt and vegetation. Take a right as you enter this room and run up to the wall past the gravity lift that leads up to the sniper point. Get on top of the wall by going up the dirt mound on your left. Follow the wall until you reach the floating skull called "Angry". This skull makes enemies fire at a faster rate.

    Contributed By: Neo Alucard X.

  • Assassins Mode

    A skull similar to the one that activates blind mode can be found if you Start on "regret". After the first lift ride (before the first underwater elevator), grenade jump from the front awning of the lift to the ledge in front of you (the one with two turrets).

    Grenade jump AGAIN onto the next ledge.

    Make your way to the back of the building. On Easy, you'll only find the skull. On Legendary, however, 2 invisible Elites carrying swords just shake their heads wildly, ignoring you completely.

  • Blind Mode

    At the beginning of Outskirts jump on top of the light on top of the door with a crouch jump, then jump to the left platform. Turn to your left and go down the long dark corridor and pick up the skull; it will say blind and your screen will flash black for a while. In this mode you can not see your weapon, body, shields, ammo, or radar. To get rid of this feature use the following method: 1. Turn off your XBOX or Save and Quit. 2. Go to Campaign and select level and choose Cairo Station. 3. Skip the cinematics and then Save and Quit. 4. Go Outskirt and your hud is back.

  • Envy Mode

    On the level "Delta Halo" on Legendary Difficulty, Progress until you reach the area during the "Push through the covenant held ruins" where you have to clear a Landing Zone for the Pelican to drop weapons. You will know you are in the right area when cortana says "they're pouring out of the center building". Anyway that area has Plasma turrets along its borders. A little bit after the left side turret you will see the outline of a door in a wall, but the door has a solid rock slab in it and a rock in front of it. Jump on the rock then jump to the ledge above the door then jump on the ledge to the left. Now jump onto the building with the sealed door using grenades. Atop the building you will find two dancing elites and the "Envy Skull". Pick up the envy skull and you will be able to use Active Camoflage like the Arbiter.

  • Famine Skull

    After you get off of the slowly decending elevator in "The Oracle", you will come to a hallway where you see a handful of dead bodies. Continue into the next room, and you will be on the second floor of a room that has windows. When you enter this room, look to the right, and find the third pane of glass. It should be to the right of a wall that has some flood guts splattered on it. Shoot out this window, and either window directly across the room. If you look below you will see a platform that has four tall posts. On the far side of the room there is a column that is right in between the two windows, on the far side of the room. Turn on your active camo, and jump to the center platform. Jump on either of the posts on the far side of the platform and jump to the column between the windows. Make another jump through the window you shot out and make a left. Walk all the way to the end and you'll find four flood elites convulsing on the floor, with the Famine skull in the middle of them. When you have this skull all weapons will have less ammo.

  • Giant Soccer Ball

    It's on the level "Metropolis" on any difficulty I do believe. Use the same method to get a Banshee through the tunnels as you would if you were getting the Scarab Gun. (See the corresponding cheat for more details)

    Now take your Banshee away from that half-dome thing and fly through the level using the same path you would as if you were walking. Once you get to the highway where the Warthogs are fighting the Ghosts, keep flying straight toward the half-demolished building. Fly into it and go to the bottom level. Behold! A giant soccer ball! It's great fun to mess around with, especially if you have the Scarab gun.

  • Grunts Birthday Party Mode

    In the level Arbiter on Legendary. Once you get to the first banshee section, fly immediately straight down all the way to the bottom of the map. In one of the cracks where the large cylinders connect to the station. There will be a circle of grunts dancing around a skull. When you pick up the skull; it will say Grunt Birthday Party on the screen. Now when you kill a enemy with a headshot, they will blow up like a plasma grenade was stuck to them.

    To get rid of this feature use the same method as the blind mode.

  • Iron Mode

    On the last Master Chief Level, on Legendary Difficulty, when you enter the final Gravity Lift, look up. A skull will pass through you extemely quickly so you must start holding X a bit before you actually pass it to grab hold of it. Once you grab the Iron Skull, Iron Mode will be activated. This skull causes you to go back to the last checkpoint when you die in co-op mode.

  • Messages on the bomb

    If you play multiplayer and hide with the bomb, then you probably have noticed this already. If you stand somewhere long enough, the mastercheif will start to toss the bomb up and catch it. Eventually he will examine the bomb, and you can read what it says on the bottom. One message is "goodbye" and another is "xoxoxoxo".

  • Midship bunny

    On the level Midship, go to the top where the sword spawns. Now walk to the doorway which doesnt have a big roof. Look up and you should see an outline of a bunny!

  • Mythic Mode

    In "Sacred Icon" there is a semi outdoor area which has the same type of area right next to it. There is a large sentinal in front of each one. Go past this area and down the piston and you'll be in a vary dark and dank flood infested area. There's a stack of 6 or 7 boxes as you enter the room. Use them to jump up to the landing above. There are a handful of alcoves on your right hand side. The skull is in the third alcove, floating above a dead human flood.

  • Rex-In outskirts

    First start going torwards the blind skull way but when you go up there take a left instead of a right and jump on the ledge, then crouch jump on top of another ledge (which would be right above the wreckage) then jump on the ledge across the wreckage then continue the pathway intill you reach the area with the sword sticking out of the ground (It's inside a broken rooftop), right next to it is a rock with the word REX written on it.

  • Sign on Zanzibar

    On the beach on Zanzibar, you will see signs that say NO SWIMMING. Well, go to your xbox dashboard, go to the Settings, Clock, and change every number you can to 7 , then pop Halo 2 back into your xbox and load it up. WARNING: Do not sign into XBoxLive, it resets your clock. Now go to Split-Screen and start a game on Zanzibar. Go to the beach and look at the sign, it will mention something is missing, and there is a bloody dog's head.

  • Sputnik Mode

    At the start of "Quarantine Zone" on Legendary difficulty turn directly around, and you should see a tunnel. Head down the tunnel and go straight until you exit it. Go straight across the open area, and you'll come across a broken pipe tunnel on your right. Straight in front of you is a small ledge running across the wall, above the green pit. Carefully get onto that small ledge and walk all the way to the end of the ledge to find the Sputnik skull. In this mode explosion force and melee force is greater.

  • The Face of Chris

    On the map Containment, get a sniper rifle and go anywhere where you can see the part of the Halo in the sky that's closest to the Sun Base (the base with orange-yellow glowing buildings). Zoom in with the sniper on the part of the halo that's just below where it begins to get dark. In the clouds you should be able to see the face of Chris Carney (grinning happily), one of Bungie's developers.

  • Thunderstorm Mode

    On the level "Cario Station" on legendary, make your way to the "Priority Shift" checkpoint. Progress until the room with mounted plasma turrets, right after the armory with the Elites. Clear out this room, and get on the raised area with the plasma turret that is on the side of the wall where the window curves. Look for two parallel beams on the ledge above. Climb up the supports for these beams and crouch jump up onto the upper ledge, then onto the beams themselves. Walk in the direction you came from and there will be a small ledge sticking out to the left, jump on it and pick up the Thunderstorm Skull from inside the trash container. This turns all Covenants into their spec ops rank.

  • Unknown Skull

    At the begining "Armory" wait in the room until the Sarge starts telling you to get into the elevator. You MUST wait for him to say "Would it help if I said please?" When he says this, get into the elevator and go down to the tram. Get on the tram and face towards the INSIDE of the building. Press up against the glass doors towards the inside of the building. You should hold 'X' down, and you should pick up the skull. It's on a stack of green crates, near the end of the tram ride.

  • Weird Window Reflections on Headlong

    In Headlong, grab a banshee and fly to the part of the level with water. On the same side as the Warthogs spawn, almost at the end of the level itself, there are some windows. Look closely at them, they aren't reflecting the other side of the level, but showing concept art for Halo 2. (A would-be human city at night)

  • Why am I here? Message in Beaver Creek

    This easter egg is very simple. Go to beaver creek. Run to where the sniper rifle spawns. Jump up on to the ledge in front of you and push all of the rocks down. When you push the big rock down loook at the wall that was behind of it. If you look carefully, you should see "Why am I here?" Scratched in to the wall. (Note: if you can not see it then back away from the wall some and it should look much clearer.)

Secrets

  • Banshee In The Control Room

    To get a Banshee inside the room where you fight Tartarus first get a Banshee. After the Scarab destroys the front door fly inside and go straight up as soon as you enter. It's easy to navigate to the next door, get out of your Banshee and make the door open, then get back in your Banshee and fly through. Once the Brutes come through the next door you can kill them or fly past them, but it is important that you are not in your Banshee when the cut scene starts to make sure it is there when you walk back.

  • Changing Split Screen Type

    The multiplayer split screen type is determined by the video settings on the Xbox dashboard. For Horizontal split screen, the Xbox must be in fullscreen mode. For Vertical split screen, the Xbox must be in widescreen mode.

  • Get a Scarab Gun

    This is done on the level Metropolis and is easiest when done on Co-op. When you start out, cross the bridge. Take out every enemy and even your marines. When you're near the end, Cortana will say something about a "Welcome Party". Three Banshees and a few ghosts will appear. Take them all out. Then 2 Wraiths and 2 Banshees will appear. Take out both Wraiths, and only one Banshee. Have Player 1 continue through the tunnel, but have Player 2 stay outside and distract the Banshee. Once Player 1 reaches the area with the circular opening (a Jackal with a Beam rifle is present), take out the Jackal and head back to where Player 2 is.

    Here is the hard part. Get the Banshee to follow both players into the tunnel. Do not board it yet! The first few times it will come at you and fly back out, but stay where you are. It should come back after you. (If it doesn't, go back outside and try again). Eventually, you'll have to get it over two road blocks. Once it is past the second one, have both players stand near the entrance of the room where Player 1 took out the Jackal. It should fly at you and get stuck. Shoot off both of its wings so it can fit thru. Have Player 1 walk slowly in front of the Banshee, making it follow him. Player 2 should be behind it, gently pushing it. Take it to the left and get ready to board it. As soon as you hit the checkpoint, the Elite in the Banshee will disappear. You only have about a second to get in before the Banshee also disappears. Both players should press X quickly. If done right, one of the players will be driving the Banshee!

    Take it outside and directly up. Very high in the sky are two skyscrapers with two bridges connecting them. In the middle of the bridge closest to you, there is something that looks like a plasma rifle. It's actually a Scarab gun! It has infinite ammo, so have fun. Just don't aim at the ground.....

  • Skip Banshee Flight in the level ''Arbitor''!

    When you first get to fly the banshee, zoom towards the tower to your right. When you get closer, a nav-point will appear. Go to it and the game will automatically advance to that spot in the story. By doing this, you've skipped the grueling 20 minute-long Banshee flight. On the downside, however, you don't have much of a chance to grab a Fuel Rod Cannon.

  • Skip fight around the Delta Halo tower

  • skip half of outskirts

    (From the beginning of the level where Master Cheif is alittle dazed) Go straight out the door in front of you that leads to the street. kill the grunts and take out the sheild baring jackels. Head down the street towards the two dead ends. Look on your right and you will see two alley ways that will connect to each other in this little sort of "room" in the alley. Go into that room and look back towards the street. You will see a dirt mound that is in one of the corners. Get on the dirt mound and grenade jump up to the next ledge. Look left you will see another ledge (top of a building) you should be able to jump right up to the ledge ,but probably not on the first try. When you are on the building you can continue jumping from building to building all of the way through sniper alley. Once you reach the building that says "Zanzibar" on it is the point were you cannot get any farther using this way.

    Once you are on the first building walk over to the edge of the building that faces the street. Look right and jump onto the building next to you. Keep working your way back and try to stay as close as you can to that side. You will eventually come to the free part of the level where if you look right you will see a Pelican come. If you had to look fight to see the pelican you are on the left side of the freeway. if you had to look left to see the pelican you are on the right side of the freeway. If you are on the left side of the free way go left until you see a street (on your right side) that is torn up and the end it looks like. Jump off of the freeway into that street and you can walk over the damaged part of the sreet ( a hillish type thing) And that will put you at the building that says "Zanzibar" on it. If you were on the side of the right side of the freeway then crouch jump onto the buildings in front of you. Look on your right you will see a place were the height of the roofs drop and a certain roof is orange and red. If you don't see it go right and alittle bit forward until you find it. jump straight on to the roof. If you jump onto the slanted part an invisible barrier will block you from going up. once you are on the building go up the little slanted area (make sure it is the up hill one) You will see two airvent/airconditioning unit things on the roof jump on one of them and onto the next building. head straightyou will see the building that says "Zanzibar" on it. It is a good idea to kill the covenet below before jumping down. Then it is back to the normal level.

  • Skip Sniper Alley!

    Level: Outskirts
    How To: Once you have killed The first hunter pair at the start of the level walk through the hole in the wall they created. walk through and look around. there should a destroyed wall to the left of you. jump on to it and make your way upward by carrying on jumping upwards, crouch jumping when nessasery. you should eventually reach the roof tops (it may take a while to find and/or reach). from here head toward the left hand side part of the roof tops. you should see part of the destroyed highway that the first pelican flys along once it has picked up the sgt. jump onto this highway and walk across it. at the other side you should see a slope and in the distance the hotel where the next group of marines are pinned down. jump off the hight way and walk up this slope to reach the hotel skipping the sniper alley.

  • Two hidden swords on Halo Delta and a fight to skip.

    On Halo Delta, get to the structure where you can't go any farther with the tank. As you enter into the area, go left up the ramp and then up the little ramp until you come to the large block butted up against the wall. This is where you jump up to get to the Envy Skull (consult for more detail). There is a secret entrance behind this large cube.

    I found the easiest way to move it was with the tank, although grenades do the trick just as well. You can drive the tank up there with a little patience. Aim at the WALL to the left of the stone, The explosion with slowly move the stone out of the way. Once the path is clear, walk up the dark ramp and there will be two dead grunts and two swords. There is also a high ledge in the next room that you can grenade jump up to, and then frag grenade jump up one more level -- allowing you to skip the fight inside the structure.

Secrets

  • Assembly Skull

  • Black-Eye Skull

    Effect: Melee hits instantly recharges your shield.

    Where to find: Crow's Nest

    How to find: As soon as you start the level, head straight up to the higher level. Head toward the door with the red light, then turn around. Jump onto the racks, onto the red metal light holders, then onto the ventilation tube. The skull will spawn at the end.

    Contributed By: Lightliquid.

  • Blind Skull

    Description: "Shoot from the hip"

    Stage: First Stage

    How To Find: When you get to the area where you see the Phantom overhead (one of the marines will point it out) jump over the rocks and keep following the path on the right. When you get to the cliff there will be a rock over of the side. The skull is on the end of the rock.

    Note: This skull has to be Activated before you start a Campaign map.

  • Catch Skull

    Effect: all enemies have 2 grenades, throw more grenades

    Level: The Storm

    Location: From the start, go through until you go outside again. When you go outside look straight across there is a small round building straight out there, the skull is on top. In order to get up there you can either use a warthog as a platform or grenade-jump. DO NOT destroy the wraith near the door or the skull will disappear.

  • Citadel Skull

    In forge mode, fly around the map until you find the corridor with the overshield powerup (red). Go to the right side of the power-up (facing the power-up from the middle of the map) and stop just past the doorway. Turn around to face the power-up and stack up items (red and blue crates work best, usually about 3 or 4). Jump on top of the items and you should be able to grab the skull if you jump into the missing space on the ceiling.

    Contributed By: LiamMcluckie.

  • Cowbell Skull

    Effect: Explosive force increased (sputnik from H2)

    Level: The Ark

    Location: First pick up a grav lift from the small building near where you fight the scarab. Now proceed through the level until you reach the second sloping hallway (stairway), you should see some partitioned risers (platforms) halfway down. The skull is on the top level. Toss the grav-lift on the right side of the hall so it lands on the fourth little green dot from the door. Then run, jump, and use the grav-lift to propel you to the top. You should reach a ckeckpoint just as you enter the room so it you miss just try again.

    Contributed By: vjay8088.

  • Famine Skull

    Mission: The Ark

    Effect: "Trust us. Bring a magazine." -- Dropped weapons will have very little ammo compared to normal.

    When you first go into the valley to the right after the wrecked phantom, look to your left where you will see a huge boulder. Use a ghost and get to the side of the boulder that is closest to the bridge overhead. It is easy to pilot the ghost up the side of the wall using the thrust. To get the skull, pilot 2 ghosts up the wall to the top of the bridge and stack them one on top of another next to the beam where the skull is placed. Simply jump from the top of the ghosts towards the skull and land on the beam.

  • Fog Skull

    Mission: Floodgate

    Effect: "You’ll miss those eyes in the back of your head." -- Your motion sensor disappears.

    As you are walking down from the anti-air gun you destroyed in the previous mission, you encounter a ramp (next to a missile launcher). Around this ramp, you hit a checkpoint. At this point, you should also hear a marine yelling, “There! Over There!”. Look up and to the right, directly at the roof of the building next to the missle launcher. There is a single flood form (not to be mistaken with the two other flood forms jumping in front of you) which is holding the skull. Kill him before he jumps, and he will drop the skull down to the ground where you can retrieve it. Too early, and the skull will get stuck on the roof though, so just time it carefully.

  • Grunt Birthday Party skull

    Effect: Headshots on grunts cause heads to explode with confetti.

    Where to find: Crow's Nest

    How to find: Right after the first objective, while en route to the barracks, you will fall down onto a pipe. At the end of this pipe, look over the edge to see a small space a few feet below you. You must simply drop over and as quicly as you can, pull back to land under the floor you were just on. After that, the skull will be at the end.

  • Heretic Skull

    In forge mode, fly to the top of the room in monitor mode. Go the platform with the sword on it. It’s shaped like a letter c or pacman. Turn right and fly over to the open room. Place a grav lift just before you enter it and jump, the skull is on a ledge just above the doorway, just in front of some vents.

    Contributed By: LiamMcluckie.

  • Iron Skull

    Effect: When either player dies in Co-Op on any difficulty both players will restart at last check point or in single player if you die you restart the level.

    Where to Find: Sierra 117

    How to find: In the area where you rescue Sarge, behind the prison cell is a large ledge. Got to the far right side and jump on the boxes, then onto the pipes to get up on the ledge, goto the far end of the ledge, turning two corners the skull is at the far end.

  • IWHBYD Skull

    Mission: The Covenant

    Effect: "But the dog beat me over the fence" - Unlocks bonus dialogue throughout the game. For most, this is the last skull, so this gives you the Hayabusa Helmet as well.

    To get this, get to the room where you "fight" the Prophet of Truth. Let the Arbiter kill him, turn around, and kill all the Flood here as well; makes it a LOT easier. With all obstacles out of the way, you need to jump through the Halo holograms here in a specific order, listed below:

    4 6 5 4 5 3 4

    When you jump through the final hologram, they all light up in a sequential pattern. The Skull will be at the end waiting for you right before the energy bridge leading to Truth's corpse.

  • Longshore Skull

    In forge mode, look for a red sign with a fish on it. It says "Fronks". Fly right up to it in monitor mode, then turn right. You should find an air vent. Fly over to it, and the skull should be at the bottom. Go higher then turn back into your character whilst holding the RB button to grab the skull on your fall down to the ground. Alternatively, use items as platforms to reach it.

    Contributed By: LiamMcluckie.

  • Mythic Skull

    Effect: Every enemy on the field now has double their normal amount of health.

    Where to find: Halo

    How to find: As soon as the mission starts walk up the hill in front of you and into the cave. Hug the right side of the cave and after a large boulder you will see a path on your right, just take the short path and it will be at the end.

    Contributed By: oOMaverickOo.

  • Orbital Skull

    Load up Orbital in forge mode, find the open area (the place with the two traffic cones and a pit you can fall down). In monitor mode (press up on the d-pad), fly all the way to the top and the skull is lying on a vent in one of the corners.

    Contributed By: LiamMcluckie.

  • Sandbox Skull

    In Sandbox, fly to the heighest possible point in the map. Look around till you can see the sun (not the "red light" on one side of the map) on the horizon, inbetween two Guardian towers. Turn right and face inbetween the next pair of Guardian towers (so the tower on the right of the sun is now the tower on the left). The skull is located outside of the map in this direction. If you are having trouble spotting it, try and use the zoom of a sniper rifle or beam rifle. There are several methods of obtaining the skull. You can use bubble shields, tube pieces and shield doors to form a tunnel, or you may fly over the skull and drop a teleporter exit so you can teleport to it directly. There are also several maps you can download on fileshare to gain easy access to the skull.

  • The 7 Terminals

    The Ark:

    1. Start the mission and once you enter the first building take a left into another door and now you should be in a curved corridor. On the inside is a Terminal.
    2. After activating the bridge to let your comrades accross the gap, do a 180 and you should see it. (it does not open until you activate the bridge)
    3. In the third building after defeating the scarab, kill the group of sleeping covenant, then follow the corridor downwards. Once you reach a door in front that is locked, immediately on the left there's an open door. Go through and walk straight off, then do a 180 to find a secret room. It is in there.

    The Covenant:

    1. When in the first tower standing on the lift, face the access panel and turn left. Jump over and it's right there.
    2. Land your hornet on the second tower, walk towards the entrance but when you see the locked door, do a 180. Should be right in front of you.
    3. When in the third tower standing on the lift, face the access panel and turn right. Jump over and it's right there.

    Halo:

    1. After reaching the end of the first cave, hug the right wall and you will see a building. Jump up onto the walkway and hang a left once inside. It's right there.

  • Thunderstorm Skull

    Mission: The Covenant

    Effect: "Field promotions for everyone!" -- Upgrades enemies to their stronger versions.

    After you shut down tower 1 and get access to the hornet, fly to tower 2 (the one the arbiter shut down). While walking up the stairs, go to the middle part that connects both and there should be a stair leading up to a platform where the skull is.

    Contributed By: jed512.

  • Tilt Skull

    Mission: Cortana

    Effect: "What was once resistant is now immunity" -- Enemies have different body parts that may be resistance to certain bullet types

    When in the circular type room with all the flood look for a small structure piece next to two archways, jump on top if it and up on the rocks to the top left, turn left and jump up again, then do a 180 and jump to the rocks across from you. After that follow the the rock sticking out and leading up on top of of the original circular room, the skull will be in a pile of blood.

    Contributed By: jed512.

  • Tough Luck Skull

    Effect: Enemies do saving throws

    Where to find: Tsavo Highway

    On Tsavo Highway, about halfway through the mission (right after you are forced to walk through a large blue barrier), you will come out of a tunnel on the highway, and see a large pipeline on your left. Drop down in between the two, and run to the wall in front of you. Follow the wall all the way to where it connects with the cliff on your right, and turn to the left. There should be a few ledges--simply crouch jump from ledge to ledge, and the last one should have the "Tough Luck" skull on it.

Secrets

  • Extra Credits for Halo Reach + Bonus 11th Terminal Video on Waypoint

    At the end of each Terminal video, you are presented with a code comprised of 5 Forerunner symbols. Pause the videos at this point and take pictures of the codes or draw them on a piece of paper. Log in to the Halo Waypoint console app and press "X" at the main menu. You will then be presented with a series of colored circles on-screen. Press the face buttons that correspond to the color pattern from left to right (i.e. Blue-Green-Blue-Red-Yellow-Blue will translate to X A X B Y X). If this is your first time accessing this hidden section of the app, you will immediately be presented with the code entry screen. Enter the codes you copied earlier by highlighting the Forerunner symbols that correspond to the codes you logged and pressing "A". Then confirm the code by highlighting the 3-arrow symbol and pressing "A". For every code you enter successfully, you will 1) unlock the corresponding Terminal video for use in Waypoint, 2) earn 7,000 credits each for the first 9 terminals, from "The Pillar of Autumn" to "Keyes"; unlocking the Terminal video from "The Maw" will net you a whopping 32,000 credits. And 3) upon entering all 10 codes, you will unlock a special 11th Terminal video that can only be viewed in Waypoint. To go back to the Waypoint main menu, select "Reset Terminal" at the Secret Terminal menu. Note that whenever you do a fresh boot of Waypoint, you will still need to press "X" at the main menu and enter the color-code in order to access the Secret Terminal menu if you want to view the videos again. You will find them in the "Alpha Halo Archive" Data Set.

When you reach the very end of the level there is a door that opens and you would normally walk straight across a bridge and end the level on the elevator which leads to the Index; however, the skull is located beyond this (the opposite side of the level) so you'll have to take a small hike around to get there. Finally after a decade of Halo we can deactivate auto aim! You must have on the new graphics.

  • Malfunction Skull

    The Malfunction Skull is located on the level Assault on the Control Room in an under ground section (which is past the frozen lake with the two Wraiths and the Banshee). When you first arrive in this large subterranean area there is a turret on a broken bridge to the right. Walk toward the bridge and look down in the chasm to the left of the bridge; there you'll see a conduit with the skull waiting for you.

  • Piñata Skull

    The Piñata Skull is located on the level Two Betrayals. The chapter title "Final Run" will appear as you exit a tunnel from the underground (the area with the broken bridge) and Cortana will mark Pulse Generator #3 with a navigation point. The skull is located above the tunnel (where a Wraith was located on Assault on the Control Room). I recommend grenades or a Banshee to get up there; however, careful jumping will get you to the top on the left side (as you exit the tunnel). You need to have the updated graphics enabled.

Basically you need to keep this heading walking straight ahead and avoiding obstacles. You should come upon a hill with two trees and a bush in the middle. The skull is behind the bush. -alternate way- At the start of the level go forward and a little left to reach the downed Pelican drop ship. Jump on the Pelican. The Pelican is facing a tree with a large lower trunk and a rock at it's base; left of this tree is another tree a little farther away. Face the right side of the tree farther away and start walking. When you reach this tree you'll see a tree about straight ahead; you need to walk straight toward this tree and around it (don't change your bearings). After walking a ways you'll run into the steep hill that is the level boundary; to the right you'll see a hill with two trees with a bush in the middle. The skull is behind the bush.
