Easter Eggs

Easter Eggs

Skulls

Skulls are a fan favorite addtion to the Halo franchise and they have been in every game in one shape or another since Halo 2. The skulls activate specific adjustments to gameplay and each skull alters 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! Unfortunately, unlike some previous games, these are not hidden throughout the campaign in halo 4 but are instead unlocked from the start. They can be activated from the campign menu.
