Skulls in other games

this is a page to talk about potential skulls that can be added to each campaign. i’ll share what i am thinking about in regards to new skulls as well as bringing skulls from other campaigns, but i’d love to hear what new skull ideas you may have!

Just one for Reach: A skull that grants the cracked visor from Lone Wolf to all missions for an insignificant score boost. I think having that permanent effect from damage could be really fun and interesting, without being too drastic.

Halo Combat Evolved: Anniversary was going to have a skull where weapon sounds would be replaced with verbal nonsense sounds, and 3: ODST was going to have one that changes the camera to a third person view, any and all unused content would be incredible.

Swarm for all games, Tilt for CE, and a Thirdperson skull for all games would be lit.
Also swarm making Hunters un-headshottable in CE would be fun.

I think it’d make sense for Bandanna to do that.

A skull for all Halo games where if enabled co-op only enemies will be enabled in single player for an extra challenge, similar to UV + from Doom.

yeah, i suppose the bandana skull could do that, that makes sense. what is the swarm skull? i’ve never heard of that skull. i’m assuming it’s from halo wars?

that would be a nice challenge! using coop scoring skulls makes it too easy to finish challenges that require score skulls

i didn’t know there was any cut content for regarding additional skulls! it would be nice to introduce those into the respective games. a third person skull would be a blast and would serve as a refreshing new way to play the halo games

It’s in H2A. It increases Hunter’s health and makes them a lot more dangerous in combat too. You gotta watch some video to unlock it I think.

Really it’s still locked behind Halo Nightfall? I thought that was a limited time thing… They recently brought it to Halo 3 as well.

I have no idea if it still is, it’s just what I remember. And when I looked it up earlier to make sure I was thinking about the right one, it said the same thing on the wiki page. Maybe it’s changed now though.

I think all Halo Nightfall unlocks were recently granted, even the special emblems are available if I remember correctly. Swarm was available the moment I got Halo 2 on PC, so I know for certain it’s available there.

are there any skulls from the halo wars titles that could cross over into any of the mainline titles?

Yes, I want Paintball, Things That Go Boom, and Wuv Woo. I cannot see skulls such as Bountiful Harvest and Pain Train making it though.

Boomstick would also go well, giving ALL NPCs a small chance of exploding violently. That, with the skulls that blow Grunts and Brutes up, alongside cowbell and Boom, would all go together beautifully.

that would be so chaotic! i’d love to see that at work

How about a skull that makes it so it’s like that modded fast-firing game mode for Halo 4 where it’s just total chaos.
