On the second mission, with the Grunt Birthday party skull.. the requirement is to destroy all the methane tanks AND kill 20 jackals.. im not entirely sure but i killed the jackals first and the skull wasnt there. I went and did the Endless fun achievement and went back to base to find the skull there.. So just letting you know.

FlameBall Warthog Counts as 16 Honor Gaurd Wraith is 17 but even if you have them it will say 15/17 and if you need proof to know they are 16 and 17 check my skulls out http://www.halowars.com/stats/StatsP...C125064CE1A648

Very good guide indeed!

I have a question about mission number 1, killing 100 grunts. Is there any hidden area with grunts? Because I never seem to find enough grunts to get 100, and as soon as I kill the ones at the end, the mission is over.

Thanks for the information, I am one of the unfortunate ones in North America who had to wait until today to get it! So as soon as the store opens (impatiently counting the minutes) maybe I will see a few of you online!

I left a Warthog at the front of Alpha base, and then proceeded to go in and kill the rest of the Grunts...

Got 100/100 and then switched over to the Warthog where the skull should have been and it wasn't there, then the level ended

Is it hard to see and maybe I missed it? Any help is appreciated, thanks

Hey, I've got a warning for the skull on Mission 1. If you don't kill the grunts quickly, any kills that the marines that you're rescuing get before you rescue them don't count to your total kills. If you have less than 100 kills it's because the marines stole too many kills.

o Mr Blobby's Gamercard
Can the missions be on easy most of the time to get skulls? or does it have to be normal and above?
Also can it be done in co-op

Skull Name: Rebel Sympathizer (Mission 7: Scarab )
Kill 10 Locusts
Special Effect: Non-player units recive 25% more hit points - Final score will increase by 20%
Once you have Killed All 10 Locusts, Get a Warthog And Take it to the Top Left of the Map where there was 2 Locusts and a Power Nod its right there. (A quick way to kill the Locusts is to Build up a Squad of around 5 -7 Warthogs and Charge around the Edge's of the Map to pick them off, You should find 8 the other 2 you'll need to wait for as the show up attacking your Base).

I can only kill 9 Locusts..... It seems there are only 9, I have ran all around the map with Warthogs and only found 9.......

Never mind, found the last one hiding behind a power node, so I thought it WAS a power node.... Then I ended up destroying the power node to get to the Locust so now I am not gonna get my Micro manager achievement.

So, I try for my first skull on Mission 4 where you have 20 minutes till launch. I kill all 50 elites and then go looking for the skull. It gets down to about 10 seconds and I see it. My guys run over it with 1 second to go and then nothing happens. They just stood around it for another 5 seconds or so before the mission was over and I didn't get it. Is there something you have to do to capture the skull?
