    Halo 4 Skulls Guide

    Our Halo 4 Skulls Guide will show you what (dis)abilities the Skulls activate. There’s no Halo 4 Skulls locations guide, they are all located in the menu, because all 13 Halo 4 skulls are unlocked from the start of the Xbox 360 game this time around! Like it was in Halo: Reach.

    Turning on Skulls to increase difficulty with game-modifiers during the Halo 4 Campaign will help unlock the following Achievement:
    * “Skullduggery” (15 Gamerscore Points) — Complete any Campaign mission with 3 or more Skulls on Heroic difficulty mode or harder.

    Halo 4 Skulls Guide

    The 343 Industries Community Manager Jessica Shea, via Halo Waypoint, confirmed that:
    “Skulls are a longstanding tradition in the Halo series and one we’re excited to continue. Modifying gameplay and multiplying difficulty, the Skulls in Halo 4 will behave like the ones you already know and love from Halo: Reach. In Halo 4, they will be available in Campaign and are automatically unlocked from the start. For the uninitiated, you can find the names and descriptions below.”

    1. “Black Eye” Skull — Activation enables: “Shields don’t recharge unless you melee enemies.”
    2. “Blind” Skull — Activation enables: “The HUD and the first person arms and weapon are hidden.”
    3. “Catch” Skull — Activation enables: “Enemies are grenade happy!”
    4. “Cloud” Skull — Activation enables: “Motion sensor is disabled.”
    5. “Cowbell” Skull — Activation enables: “Acceleration from explosions is increased.”
    6. “Famine” Skull — Activation enables: “Weapons drop much less ammo.”
    7. “Grunt Birthday Party” Skull — Activation enables: “Headshot a Grunt, HAPPY BOOM TIME!”
    8. “Iron” Skull — Activation enables: Co-op: “Back to previous checkpoint on death. Solo: Restart mission on death.”
    9. “IWHBYD” Skull — Activation enables: “Rare combat dialogue becomes more common.”
    10. “Mythic” Skull — Activation enables: “Enemies have increased health.”
    11. “Thunderstorm” Skull — Activation enables: “Major upgrade to the capabilities of enemies.”
    12. “Tilt” Skull — Activation enables: “Enemy resistances and weaknesses are increased.”
    13. “Tough Luck” Skull — Activation enables: “Enemies always go berserk, always dive out of the way, and never flee.”
