    Blind Skull
    Effect: Melee hit recharges shield

    Where: Crow Nest

    How: When you get on the level, go to the higher level. Go to the door with the red light, turn around. Jump onto rcks, then onto the red metal light holders, then jump onto the ventilation tube. The skull will spawn at the end.

    Easter Egg: Cavemen

    On the Sierra 117 mission, the Pelicans will crash. After that, you should clear the area like you normall would. As the area narrows as you proceed, there are some rocks on your left that you can jump on. Continue along a ledge thereafter. Once it heads down, you'll pass a large boulder on your left. After you do, turn around and take a look where the wall and the boulder intersect. You'll see a family of primitive cavemen-like people!


    Easter Egg: Elephant Flipper
    In the Forge, edit the Sandtrap map and create a Scorpion. You can use the tank to lift and flip the Elephant (the large Sandcrawler vehicle). Once the Elephant is upside down (or undrivable), approach it to flip the vehicle and get a humorous message.

    Easter Egg: Funny Conversation

    On the second level of the campaign, when you're escorting characters to their ships, you can head the wrong away from where you're supposed to go to complete your mission. If you do, you'll run into two characters (separated by a door) having a humorous conversation.


    Easter Egg: Spartan 117

    When you beat the game, you will be shown a memorial for the men and women that died in-game. Spartan 117 is one of those considered KIA, but if you wait for the credits to end at the end of the game, you will see that Spartan 117 is very much alive (this only applies if the game is finished on any difficulty but Easy).

    Hint: Custom Power-up Usage
    The custom power-up you can add in the Forge will greatly make or break your game (depending on how many you put in your map and how fast they respawn). Since you can only adjust the custom power-up just before a match, be sure to jot down what effects you are looking for in a custom game.

    Custom power-ups can only be used in Custom Games. Press BLUE to edit the match options in a Custom Game. Go into Weapons and Vehicles, then locate the Custom Power-up Traits. Have fun!

    Hint: Skull Collecting

    While collecting skulls, keep in mind that you have to start the stage from the beginning (not from a checkpoint), but once you acquire the skull you're seeking, you can save and quit at any time without finishing the stage. This will allow you to collect skulls without having to worry about finishing the stage successfully.


    Hint: Terminal Locations

    You will unlock a secret achievement by finding all seven terminals listed below...

    Terminals: The Ark

    Go left through a door once in the very first building of the stage. The terminal is located beyond a curving passage.

    A terminal is located right near the device that activates the bridge on this stage.

    There's a secret room in the third building which holds the third and final terminal on The Ark. After you come across and kill a group of sleeping Covenant enemies, head down the nearby corridor. You'll reach a door that is locked if you do. To the left of the locked door is an open door. Head through the door, and then turn around to find the terminal.

    Terminals: The Covenant

    Head to the stage's first tower and stand on the elevator. Face the control panel, and then turn left. Jump over the obstacle, and find the terminal you seek.

    Head to the stage's second tower and walk towards the entrance. When you come across a locked door, turn around to find the second of three terminals here.

    Head to the stage's third tower and stand on the elevator. Face the control panel, and then turn right. Jump over the obstacle, and find the third and final terminal on the stage.

    Terminals: Halo

    Traverse the first cave, and then head right until you come across a building. Walk along the passageway towards the building. Once inside, run left to find the terminal.


    Plasma Burnout
    If you don't have an Energy Drainer item, the plasma pistol's charged shot can be used to stop vehicles (but doesn't stop vehicle mounted weapons). Pack a plasma pistol when there are vehicles around; it's the next best thing to a rocket launcher.

    Scarab Mangling
    Having trouble with a Scarab? Or maybe you don't want to get on board (and abandon your bright, shiny Scorpion). Try this strategy instead: on the back of every Scarab, there is a circular glowing spot you can shoot to do damage (it is similar to the glowing spot on the back of Wraiths).

    Locate the spot on the Scarab's rear armor that is below its rotating anti-air "ass" (or abdomen) turret. A few shots from Hornet missiles or Scorpion tank shells and the armor will fall off and reveal the critical system you normally need to board to wreck. Don't forget that shooting the Scarab's legs will stop it from turning.
