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.
