Every Xbox One S has a teensy Master Chief hiding inside and it's the best

If you just got a shiny new Xbox One S (opens in new tab), ripping it open is probably the furthest thing from your mind right now. Just know that if you ever do need to pop open that slim plastic box, a Master Chief Easter egg is waiting to greet you from the inside.

You can see YouTuber Austin Evans discover the little Spartan on his optical disc bracket at about 1:12 into the video below.

And you can check iFixit (opens in new tab) for step-by-step instructions on how to discover the Chief yourself. Admittedly, popping the console open just to look at a chibi John-117 is probably not a great reason to void your warranty, but hey! Do what you want. Just try not to lose any of those little screws.

I got a BA in journalism from Central Michigan University - though the best education I received there was from CM Life, its student-run newspaper. Long before that, I started pursuing my degree in video games by bugging my older brother to let me play Zelda on the Super Nintendo. I've previously been a news intern for GameSpot, a news writer for CVG, and now I'm a staff writer here at GamesRadar.
