Game Details

Adding to Halo: Combat Evolved and Halo 2, the epic saga continues with Halo 3, the amazingly anticipated sequel to the highly successful and critically acclaimed Halo franchise. In this third chapter of the Halo trilogy, Master Chief returns to finish the fight, bringing the epic conflict between the Covenant, the Flood, and the entire human race to a dramatic, pulse-pounding climax.

Get ready. The Chief is back.

HDR lighting, self-shadowing, and more make Halo 3 look and feel realistic.

Mystery abounds with the return of Cortana.
Halo 3

Earth is conquered. The Covenant is everywhere. Halo 3 promises to be an epic journey.
Game developer Bungie announced that Halo 3 will be released for Microsoft's Xbox 360 sometime in 2007. The game was revealed to the world at the Microsoft press conference held at Grauman's Chinese Theater in Hollywood, CA in May 2006. To gamer's delight, the announcement was a complete surprise. The rumors have been abound for the past year, as everyone wondered when the next installment would be ready. Bungie and Microsoft did a stellar job keeping their lips sealed, and fans benefited from their first glimpse of the hallowed third and final installment.

The short presentation was delivered in real-time on the Xbox 360 using the current version of the Halo 3 game engine. That's right, no studio production video, Bungie and Microsoft delivered the real deal: what they showed at the announcement is what gamers will see when they play Halo 3 in 2007. The HDR lighting, self-shadowing, GPU-run particle system and many other effects are rumored to show up in full effect in the final game. Needless to say, the gaming community is salivating.

CJ Cowan, Bungie's director of cinematics discussed one of the most startling moments of the presentation: the return of Cortana. "Given the variety of character and story arcs at the end of Halo 2, we wanted to boil down our announcement to a few key threads. Cortana and the Chief being a galaxy apart is a situation we haven't seen before, and is something that is a powerful component to Halo 3. We are using her transmissions in the demo to give the viewer a few subtle clues to her situation and state of mind, without revealing any specifics we want to save for the game itself."

Graphically, the game closely follows in the tradition of Halo 2, although it has been upgraded to take advantage of the Xbox 360's more prodigious visual abilities. As art direct Marcus Lehto explained, "[The presentation] was intended to be an understated announcement of Halo 3 -- the tone is that of mystery and suspense -- the calm before the storm. I wanted to make sure that we reintroduced the Chief, showed that Earth was thoroughly conquered, with Covenant everywhere, and that there is a glorious, ancient artifact buried under the Earth's crust which will provide Halo 3 with the epic journey which we all want."

Taking full advantage of the power of Xbox 360, Halo 3 expands on everything that has made the franchise great, adding a wealth of technical and gameplay advancements. The game design has evolved with next-generation, high-definition visuals, enhanced A.I., an advanced real-time lighting engine, and, of course, new weapons, characters, and challenges. Halo 3 promises an unparalleled first-person shooter experience and, in the end, the most compelling and engrossing story in the franchise's history. Last, but certainly not least, Halo 3 builds upon the unique social multiplayer experience and innovative, evolving online gameplay of Halo 2. Rest assured, you'll still be able to run with your clan and battle with (or against) your buddies from coast to coast.

On the covenant level on normal difficulty or higher, you have to get to the part after you kill the prophet of truth. You have to kill all the flood but don't go down the hole to the end yet. First you need to jump through the halo rings in this order "but remember that if you jump through any of the halo rings in the wrong order or the wrong time it wont work even if you just touch any of the halo rings to early or in the wrong order." First you need to know that there are 7 halo rings and the ring closet to the exit at the end is the number 1 ring and the ring closet to where truth died is number 7 ring. Ok finally we're to the part were i tell you the order and this is the order you have to jump through the rings "456576541232721346754654534" i know that its a big job but just do it got it punks. Oh yeah i almost forgot to tell you that just to prove that im right and that it works, when you do the jumps in the right order and do all of them, then the rings will change to a really bright blinding light. Oh yeah also read the whole paragraph otherwise you noobs will fail at it trust me. And the skull is located where truth got killed, it'll be right in front of the energy bridge. You can all find me on xbox live my gamer tag name is "The legendxxx95" exactly like that, send me a friend request and a message saying that you saw this cheat and we can play i'll beat you but still if you need teaching i also take on people as my apprentices like my current apprentice "ScarletSteam". One more thing, the effect of the IWHBYD skull is, that it makes grunts and brutes in the campaign say really funny stuff and i mean funny funny funny funny funny funnny fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuunnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnny. Well thats it noobs remember if you think your good enough then come face me and my clan and we'll destroy you.

On the last level if you go from start to finish on Legendary you can have ghosts for when you escape from Halo. After Johnson is killed by the orb and you walk out of the building take a left and there will be 4 ghosts under the stairs. Their is also a mongoose later on in the level. YOU HAVE TO DO IT ON LEGENDARY START TO FINISH

at the last level when you fight the robot go to the other side of the ring and jump over the right side and there will be a skull that will give you invincibility when enabled.note you can not see the hidden platform by looking down over the edge.

Halo 3 IWHBYD skull is on the mission 'The Covenent' after you kill the Prophet. You must jump through the rings in this order, 4654534. If you do this correctly the rings will light up and you will hear he Halo 3 main theme tune. The skull will appear on the light bridge by the prophet (Ring 1 is closest to the door and 7 is closest to the prophet). YOU MUST KILL ALL THE FLOOD BEFORE YOU LUMP THROUGH THE RINGS OR IT WON'T WORK!

About Skulls in Halo 3

Skulls can only found on Normal difficulty or higher, and you must begin from the start of the level to find them!

Skulls began in Halo 2, where picking up a hidden skull on Legendary difficulty would create an undesirable effect against the player (e.g. no HUD). Pick up Golden skulls to unlock an achievement on the Xbox 360. Skull’s effects can be enabled in Meta Games, which will multiply your meta game score.

Gold Skulls

Silver Skulls

Unknown Skull

And then there is the Unknown Skull, which is neither silver or gold, and has no effect that we have seen.

Iron Skull

If you die, you restart from the beginning of the level.

Iron Skull Location

The Iron Skull is located at the very end of the first level (Sierra 117). It's located behind the building where Sgt. Johnson is being held prisoner, on the roof. You can get to the roof on the far right side of the building. Go all the way over to the left side of the roof, and the Skull will be hidden in the corner.

Black Eye Skull

Black Eye Skull Effect: When you lose your shield, the only way to regain it is to melee an enemy.

Black Eye Skull Location

This Skull is located in the beginning of the second level "Crow’s Nest", in the starting room. Hanging from the ceiling is some piping. The skull is on top of the pipes, on the side nearest to the large display (the one that Hood appears on).

Fog Skull

Fog Skull Effect: "You’ll miss those eyes in the back of your head." You lose your motion sensor.

Fog Skull Location:

The Fog Skull is found on Floodgate, at the very beginning of the level. As you are walking down from the anti-air gun you destroyed in the previous mission, you will see a ramp beside a missile launcher. Near this ramp is a checkpoint. From here, you should hear a marine yelling, "There! Over There!".

Your window of opportunity is short, but it is fairly easy to get the Fog Skull. Look up 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) that has the fog skull. Kill him before he jumps, and he will drop the skull down to the ground. Warning! Kill him too early, and the skull will get stuck on the roof.

Tough Luck Skull

Tough Luck Skull Effect: Your enemies never back down, always make their saving throws, and always charge you.

Tough Luck Skull Location

The Touch Luck skull is found on the third level, where the huge covenant cruiser flies overhead. On your left are some large tubes or pipes following the road you are walking on. Underneath the tubes are some support beams that extend out over a cliff. Jump onto the first of these beams, and travel to the end of it. Look to your left, and the Tough Luck Skull will be on a rock extending from a cliff.

Catch Skull

Catch Skull Effect: All enemies throw TONS of grenades.

Catch Skull Location

The Catch skull can be found on the fourth level, in the first area where you destroy the Wraith Tanks. When you enter this area, do not destroy the Wraith Tanks. The skull appears when the tanks appear, and is destroyed when the tanks are destroyed. The Skull is located on top of the circular building next to the anti-air tank. You can't jump up on the roof without some help, use a grenade jump or a wart-hog.

Famine Skull

Famine Skull Effect: Enemies drop 50% ammo.

Famine Skull Location

This skull is very difficult to get and requires a some grenade jumping skill or luck.

The Famine skull is on the sixth level, near fork in the path. One way goes to the area where you need to let the tanks across the bridge, and the other way leads towards the area where you encounter the frigate. Take the right path, and you’ll see a structure above and to the left of you, just near the area where you encounter some ghosts.

You need to climb the rocks to the right of the structure, and then travel across it until you get to the fourth large support beam that extends into the cliffs. The Famine skull is inside of the fourth support beam. Hint: Try a grenade jump to get up there.

Thunderstorm Skull

Thunderstorm Skull Effect: All enemies are given a field promotion, and ranked up to their next available level.

Thunderstorm Skull Location

The Thunderstorm skull is found on "The Covenant", after you take command of one of the Hornet vehicles. Fly to the second force field generator and land there, this is the one that the Arbiter disabled. The skull is at the very top, at the end of the ramp that extends over the sea.

Tilt Skull

Tilt Skull Effect: Greatly increases enemy resistances. For example, Brute power armor becomes nearly impossible to take out with nearly anything except for plasma bursts.

Tilt Skull Location

The Tilt skull is found on "Cortana", in the circular room where Cortana mentions that she "Likes to play games too…".

It’s not easy to get to it, as it you will need to get on top of the ceiling of the room. When you enter the room, head towards the left side where the mushroom shaped extrusions are along the wall. Get on top of these, and then look up and towards the right for another set of extrusions. Get on these. From here, you should be able to jump on top of the ceiling of the room and get the Tilt skull in the center.

Mythic Skull

Mythic Skull Effect: All enemies have double health.

Mythic Skull Location

The Mythic skull is located at the very beginning of the final level in Halo 3. Begin by heading into the canyon and hug the wall to your right. You will notice that there is a turn to the right that is off the normal trail. The Mythic skull is just down this path.

Blind Skull

Blind Skull Effect: You will have no HUD when this skull is turned on. i.e. You won’t see your weapons, shield, radar, etc.

Blind Skull Location

The Blind skull can be found on "Sierra 117". After your first encounter with the Gold Armor Brute, Two enemy dropships will appear a bit further down the stream. Go towards the dropship that is furthest away, and stay on the right side of the stream. Continue along the right, towards the cliff. You will see a rock jutting out a over the large lake, the Blind skull is here.

Grunt Birthday Party Skull

Grunt Birthday Party Skull Effect: Every headshot on an enemy Grunt will explode into confetti, and you’ll hear children cheer "Yay!" in excitement.

Grunt Birthday Party Skull Location

The Grunt Birthday Party skull is located on "Crow’s Nest", just before the place where you join up with the Arbiter (it’s the piping area where you see Drones buzzing in and out of an array of pipes). Before you jump down the pipe, stop at the ledge and look directly beneath you. Along the wall that you drop down, there is a small ledge with a green arrow pointing backwards. Jump onto the ledge and go inside this secret room and you'll find the skull.

Cowbell Skull

Cowbell Skull Effect: All explosions become much larger.

Cowbell Skull Location

The Cowbell skull is found on "The Ark". It’s deep into the level.

Get to the part where you battle the Scarab. After defeating it, look in the middle of the desert area where you fought for a fairly large structure (it’s the building you see if you are at the bottom of the ramp you are supposed to go up, and turn to look in the opposite direction). There are several gravity lifts inside of this structure, grab one.

Next, go up the huge ramp and go inside the building (the one with the cartographer). Go through a few of the rooms, and you’ll eventually come to a room with tons of explosive crates. Right after this room is a staircase that leads to the level below. The Skull is located at the top of the room, where you turn on the staircase to head for the next part of the slope. There are four platforms above you, the Skull is on the top platform. Use the gravity lift you picked up earlier to jump up and get it.


IWHBYD Skull Effect: Unlocks hidden dialogue in the campaign.

IWHBYD Skull Location

Unknown! As best we can tell it is on "The Covenant" level. Please post if you find it or know where it is.

Bungie: "…IWHBYD (I Would Have Been Your Daddy) is hidden in ways you cannot yet even imagine. It’ll be a while, unless someone at Bungie leaks it. Good hunting, gentlemen."
