Halo 4 Terminals

Where to find the Terminals in Halo 4? The in-game collectibles locations for the Terminals are described in this detailed voice-over video guide.

Does the game save each Terminal you collect?: Yes, right after you pick it up you should on-screen text confirming you’ve collected it. When you find one of these Halo 4 Collectibles, stand in front of it and hold the right shoulder button (RB) to download the Terminal. Successful activation results in a message saying “Domain video unlocked on Waypoint.”
Note: Once you’ve found and activated a Terminal, you can safely save & quit from your pause menu.

How to find Terminals?: You can recognize these upright computer kiosks by their handprint verification scanner and eye-camera-like globe in the middle. The white lights on it make it stand out, so once you’ve seen it, you’ll know what it is. When you get all 7 of them, you will unlock the on-screen “Terminus” Achievement as verification.

How to watch Terminal cinematics?: This isn´t done inside Halo 4. Instead download Halo Waypoint onto your Xbox 360, as it´s a free download off the Xbox Marketplace. After starting up Halo Waypoint, confirm twice with the X button on your controller, and you’ll arrive on the Code Input screen. You´ll need to have at least found a Terminal, and have a Halo 4 savegame on your Xbox 360, to be able to access the Terminal viewing area.
Alternative: We´ve also added the cutscene videos below each Terminal description so you can watch them right away if you want to.

Then you can watch the Domain Terminal by their names — like Jul ‘Mdama, War, Lord of Admirals, and Charum Hakkor — on Waypoint.

What if I didn’t grab the Terminal the first time?: Don’t worry, you can always replay the mission from the main menu to find it again!

Where to find Terminal #2 in Halo 4:

It’s at Rally Point Alpha. Soon after taking out a group of Prometheans (just a few minutes into the mission, depending on difficulty), you’ll notice a large structure with rocky slopes on either side leading up to an entrance. At the very moment where Master Chief asks Cortana, “What’s that distortion?” in regard to his HUD, you should be facing the terminal, which is at ground level.
