Is there something you have to do to capture the skull?
nope nothing special need just make sure the pointer goes from Circle to Square so it will pick it up

I've done a picture for each black box and skull location, showing where they appear. Did it mostly for my friend who was having trouble. I'm hoping it'll compliment the location guide a little more.

I'm no expert with photoshop and I don't have a capture card, so apologies if some are not such great quality. I hope they are of use for reference tho

Just a heads up on the Titan Guide.

I did the death match on Release, on Easy, as the video on the first page shows.

Couple of alterations.

Surrounding the top "release spot" I had 1 Wolverine and 5 Grizzles, 3 of them with Spartans. In the south, I had 6 Grizzles, and 1 Wolverine. I also had a Vulture.

In each of the 3 bases you capture, all I did was build Supply pads. In the "main base" I had a vehicle, barracks and air pad, and 4 supply pads. All turrets were maxed.

Inbetween hitting the north and south switches, I used the Vulture to harrass the covenent.

However, I only have 3 skulls which increase final score; Fog, Sickness and the first of the rebels. Realising it would take a long time, I decided to check how much score I would get. I activated the 3 skulls I had, and wiped out the Covenent base. At the time of it's death (Just after) I had 4298 points. My base score was 4358 on the calculation screen.

When my score was calculated I had a *6.00 multiplier, which AFAICTis much higher than those skulls would suggest.

FWIW my other stats were:

Built 21 units lost 3 (2 Hornets. I was experimenting.And hog.)
634 kills
60 buildings killed, none lost
25 buildings destroyed (All covenent and the flood bases)
72496 resources gained
91 in crates
4 bases
zero tech level
17 researches

Done in 39 mins. So you don't need 10k in points.

Should try to add a map for each level if possible some of the levels are hard to find with the descriptions given, still a great guide though. 5 Stars!

Once you finish the secondary objective to "unlock" the skull, you have to go and find it and pick it up.

Thanks for this, it really helped, but there is one really important thing I think you should add.

When you complete the requirement to make the Skull appear, on your Mini-Map, there will be a flashing green circle and a beeping sound to show and notify you the position of the Skull, I just used the flashing green circle to get me to the Skulls, I didn't need to use the directions.

Did I say you stole it NO so relax. I was pointing out the fact that both guides say the same thing. So you should not worry about it then if they stole it from you. I have had my work stolen also and it sucks. Nice guide btw sorry that someone copied it.

Play mission 1 on heroic, that's how I got it. There were actually more than 100 grunts in the mission, and I saw that a few marines got some of them before I did, but there were still plenty left.

If the marines that are still captive kill them when your warthogs arrive it doesn't count as a kill for you. Once your warthogs get there try kill the grunts straight away.
Also at the end when the carpet bombs come in they can kill grunts. The easiest way i found is if your lucky enough to have 100 to kill, send in one marine squad against the last squad which has an elite in it. When all the grunts are dead and the elite is left get your skull as the mission wont end but you should have 100 grunt kills, then kill the elite.

There is a squad of grunts just before alpha base. You have to run over those grunts because it does not count if your teammates kill them.
