Halo: Reach Skulls list

So Halo: Reach still has Skulls for you to use, but unlike Halo 3 they’re all already unlocked. That means there’s no need for you to schlep around the maps hunting for skull like some creepy goth hobo. For your convienence we've compiled a quick list of all the skulls and their effects so you don't have to bother yourself with looking at a menu like some sort of caveman.

Looking for some more Halo: Reach help? Check out our Complete Campaign Walkthrough right here, and our hints, cheats and easter egg page right here!

 

Iron

Effect: Reload checkpoint if teammate dies. Restart level if first player dies.

 

Black Eye

Effect: No auto-shield regeneration. Only melee attacks cause shields to recharge.

 

Tough Luck

Effect: Needler fire, grenades projectiles (ie. Rocket Launcher, Brute Shot) and vehicular attacks are more easily evaded by the AI. Brutes go Berserk and Grunts will turn Kamikaze more often.

 

Catch

Effect: NPCs throw twice as many grenades. NPCs always drop two grenades when dying.

 

Cloud

Effect: Motion Tracker is fully disabled.

 

Famine

Effect: Dropped weapons have much less ammunition.

 

Thunderstorm

Effect: All enemies are more difficult.

 

Tilt

Effect: Enemy defensive resistances/weaknesses are increased.

 

Mythic

Effect: All NPC's health is doubled.

 

Blind

Effect: Your entire Heads-Up Display is disabled. You can't see your weapon, shield meter, motion sensor or ammo/grenades.

 

Grunt Birthday

Effect: If a Grunt is shot in the head colorful confetti explodes out of it which causes minor damage to nearby enemies, and a sound clip of cheering can be heard in the background.

 

Cowbell

Effect: Physics effects are tripled. Explosions and melee attacks launch characters and objects farther. Damage does not increase.

 

IWHBYD (I Would Have Been Your Daddy) Skull

Effect: Unlocks new, funny, or unusual dialogue for the characters.

    Well, I don't care about skulls, so I wouldn't care to check them in the game. Reading what they do here was actually moderately useful.

    I wish I had a skull that replaced all DMR drops with shotguns. Just because I love the shotgun, and the absence of the DMR would change the game up alot.

    That's a lot of skulls

    who the "F" wants these fun killing skulls? What about ones that give more ammo, or make MORE ammo appear? Invincibility? slow-mo? what about fun shit like that? Not every player out there is a "Look how good i am at this game!" douchebag.

    Is this a power rangers game?

    This is kind of useless since the descriptions are pretty self explanatory. Why don't you put up an article with some fun combinations for custom skulls?
  • GoldenMe - September 17, 2010 7:54 p.m.

    Useless article is useless.

    Thank you! just what i needed, now i don't have to do this 'reading' thing on menus anymore. Good article!

    "...looking at a menu like some sort of caveman." (insert Geico commercial Caveman here) Kinda sad you didn't. :(

    Yeah I've been doing Legendary and I'm on mission 7, averaging 2 missions a night since launch. About 1.5 hours each mission. Rule #1 is keep your distance from Elites. Especially the high class Elites with yellow and white armor. Rule #2 Don't forget Rule #1. Tough as hell but I like a challenge. Definitely harder than Halo 3 and way harder then ODST on Legendary. Brutes are like giant teddy bears compared to the Elites.

    Most pointless feature.
  • abbottfrizzell - September 17, 2010 4:41 p.m.

    Stay back and let your other spartan do a lot of the work.. yeah I guess some people get confused by the skulls maybe? but quickly are the Data Pads the new skulls or terminals for Halo: Reach because I have found 2 randomly in levels. I'm to scared to look at the other News feeds because i've already had A HUGE plot point ruined by a prick you're noussion

    Thanks for telling us pretty much what the description did? Now, please make a help guide for soloing legendary. PLEASE.
