Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary Cheats


  • Extra Credits for Halo Reach + Bonus 11th Terminal Video on Waypoint

    At the end of each Terminal video, you are presented with a code comprised of 5 Forerunner symbols. Pause the videos at this point and take pictures of the codes or draw them on a piece of paper. Log in to the Halo Waypoint console app and press "X" at the main menu. You will then be presented with a series of colored circles on-screen. Press the face buttons that correspond to the color pattern from left to right (i.e. Blue-Green-Blue-Red-Yellow-Blue will translate to X A X B Y X). If this is your first time accessing this hidden section of the app, you will immediately be presented with the code entry screen. Enter the codes you copied earlier by highlighting the Forerunner symbols that correspond to the codes you logged and pressing "A". Then confirm the code by highlighting the 3-arrow symbol and pressing "A". For every code you enter successfully, you will 1) unlock the corresponding Terminal video for use in Waypoint, 2) earn 7,000 credits each for the first 9 terminals, from "The Pillar of Autumn" to "Keyes"; unlocking the Terminal video from "The Maw" will net you a whopping 32,000 credits. And 3) upon entering all 10 codes, you will unlock a special 11th Terminal video that can only be viewed in Waypoint. To go back to the Waypoint main menu, select "Reset Terminal" at the Secret Terminal menu. Note that whenever you do a fresh boot of Waypoint, you will still need to press "X" at the main menu and enter the color-code in order to access the Secret Terminal menu if you want to view the videos again. You will find them in the "Alpha Halo Archive" Data Set.

  • Eye Patch Skull

    The Eye Patch Skull is located on the level The Library. When you reach the very end of the level there is a door that opens and you would normally walk straight across a bridge and end the level on the elevator which leads to the Index; however, the skull is located beyond this (the opposite side of the level) so you'll have to take a small hike around to get there. Finally after a decade of Halo we can deactivate auto aim! You must have on the new graphics.

    The Famine Skull is located on the level Silent Cartographer. At the beginning of the level just turn around and walk around the island until you reach the large rock where the Pelican crash site is later located (where you obtain the rocket launcher and below the entrance to unlock the door).

You need to grenade jump onto a specific platform. Its the one that looks different front the other 3, and grenade jump onto it by first climbing onto the ledge behind it then throwing a grenade right at your feet. Once onto the platform you need to jump into the vent on top of the fog platform, the skull is located right inside here.

  • Foreigner Skull

    This skull can be found on the level Truth and Reconciliation in the large hanger before the brig (which has the Covenant drop ship that Keys will pilot at the end) on the lower level. The skull is inside the door farthest from where you initially enter the room and to the right. The door is locked and only lets enemies enter the fight, so you need to run for the door when it is opening lest you should lose your chance.

Climb onto it and the skull is right at the far end.

  • Malfunction Skull

    The Malfunction Skull is located on the level Assault on the Control Room in an under ground section (which is past the frozen lake with the two Wraiths and the Banshee). When you first arrive in this large subterranean area there is a turret on a broken bridge to the right. Walk toward the bridge and look down in the chasm to the left of the bridge; there you'll see a conduit with the skull waiting for you. The updated graphics need to be enable to find and obtain skulls.

  • Piñata Skull

    The Piñata Skull is located on the level Two Betrayals. The chapter title "Final Run" will appear as you exit a tunnel from the underground (the area with the broken bridge) and Cortana will mark Pulse Generator #3 with a navigation point. The skull is located above the tunnel (where a Wraith was located on Assault on the Control Room). I recommend grenades or a Banshee to get up there; however, careful jumping will get you to the top on the left side (as you exit the tunnel). You need to have the updated graphics enabled.

  • Recession Skull

    The Recession Skull is obtainable on the level 343 Guilty Spark. At the start of the level you'll get off Pelican E419. Turn left to face the left side of a very large green glowing tree. Basically you need to keep this heading walking straight ahead and avoiding obstacles. You should come upon a hill with two trees and a bush in the middle. The skull is behind the bush. -alternate way- At the start of the level go forward and a little left to reach the downed Pelican drop ship. Jump on the Pelican. The Pelican is facing a tree with a large lower trunk and a rock at it's base; left of this tree is another tree a little farther away. Face the right side of the tree farther away and start walking. When you reach this tree you'll see a tree about straight ahead; you need to walk straight toward this tree and around it (don't change your bearings). After walking a ways you'll run into the steep hill that is the level boundary; to the right you'll see a hill with two trees with a bush in the middle. The skull is behind the bush. You must have on the updated graphics to obtain the skull.

Easter Eggs

  • Easter Egg: Change Club Errera's Music and Brute Dance Party

    In Mission 7, you can change the music to the tracks "Never Surrender" and "Siege of Madrigal" in Club Errera. During Mission 7, once you get to the Club Errera part of the mission, head back to the hospital. Fly to a ledge below the usual entrance. If you chose the right one, when you get out you should see a green light. Once found, activate it and go back to Club Errera. Land and when you walk in the song "Never Surrender" will be playing. If you want to change the music again, go back to your Falcon and fly to the roof of Club Errera. Guess what, there's another switch. Activate it and the song "Siege of Madrigal" will now be playing. If you return to the dance club after you clear it out (Hunters included) then a Brute DJ will be spinning records, a Brute tends the bar and Grunts get freaky.

  • Master Chief Cameo

    Upon completing the final level (The Pillar of Autumn), you will see a cut-scene of the ship taking off. When the cut-scene starts, hold your aiming stick (it will be dependent on your control scheme) so that you would "turn right" normally. At the point when the UNSC shuttle docks at the Pillar of Autumn's landing bay, the camera will move to the right (if you were holding the stick to aim right) and catch a shot of a Spartan in a capsule. Should look familiar, right?
