Halo 3

Halo 3 Achievements


Find and claim this skull when playing on Normal, Heroic or Legendary difficulty.   

Mission: The Storm
Effect: "Pull pin. Count to three. Throw." -- Every NPC carries two grenades and throws them often.

You can get this by performing a grenade jump off a warthog, or grab a ghost and go back to the ramp from which you first came out, using the ghost to push a big square crate back over to the front of the silo that the skull is on top of, then use the box as a place to jump from.

Note: Destroying the second wraith by the door makes this disappear.

it doesn't matter if you fuck up any of the anti aircraftguns just don't scratch the wraith by the door and use grenades to push you up(don't forget this can't be done on easy difficulty)

Actually, I killed one of the Wraiths and it was still their, I think it was the
one near the tower that the skull is on. Unfortunately, my memory is fuzzy.

So I finally got to the top of the tower and the skull is there but I can't pick it up. What gives?

Okay I tried again the next day and for some reason I was able to pick up the skull this time.

I drove a Warthog right up against the back of the silo so the Wraith couldn't see me. Then I got in a Ghost and drove it up onto the front of the Warthog. It took several tried but I was able to climb on top of the Ghost and jump to the top of the silo.

I think I've realized easiest way EVER.

The difficult part from the grenade jump technique is that you need to place the warthog in the front of the silo because the top of it is closer to the ground due to the terrain's inclination. But once you get there, you'll be right in the wraith's line of fire. :P

So, I did mine with no warthog, no grenade jump, no ghost stacking stuff. :D
Must be done in co-op.*

Here it goes:

1.Neutralize the ghosts in the battlefield.
2.Neutralize the brute in the anti-air's turret. (Go "Rambo style" on the anti-air. Jump on it and kill the dude.)
3.Leave the anti-air alone. (He will not attack you, as you don't fly and stuff.)
4.Leave the wraith alone, he will not come down. Just take care with his shots.


Then, you both go to the back o

You know, I tried so many times to get thyis one.

The thing is, if you get there fast enough to where it should be, you have to wait for it to spawn.

I don't know why they made it that way, but it's still a pain.

Drive the warthog ON TOP of the ghost. Easy peasy

Took me tons of tries, but this is how I did it:

1) start the mission in co-op with one other person on your team
2) destroy all the pesky ghosts roaming the area, and the other covenant standing around if you wish
4) drive over to the silo, and hide between the silo wall and the outer wall facing the cliff side
5) have your friend stand against the silo wall, then jump on top of his head
6) jump, have him jump, then jump again quickly

This double-jump technique should get you up there in no time.

Note that if the skull doesn't show, even if you didn't destroy any of the Wraiths, reloading the checkpoint or restarting the chapter will not fix it. You have to start a new game to get the skull.
