Halo 4: Skulls List & Explanations

In the new Halo 4, every skull is available right out of the box, and below we’ll show you a full list of skulls and their modifying effects on your singleplayer or co-op experience. In previous Halo titles, players would have to hunt through each mission to find these obtusely hidden skulls, but with the departure of Bungie comes another change — the skulls are no longer a collectible. Before each solo of co-op game, you’ll be able to toggle on or off these skulls, each altering your game in minor but significant ways. Find the full list of modifications below.
