Halo 3

Halo 3 Achievements


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

Mission: The Ark
Effect: "Trust us. Bring a magazine." -- Dropped weapons will have very little ammo compared to normal.

When you first go into the valley to the right after the wrecked phantom, look to your left where you will see a huge boulder. Use a ghost and get to the side of the boulder that is closest to the bridge overhead. It is easy to pilot the ghost up the side of the wall using the thrust. To get the skull, pilot 2 ghosts up the wall to the top of the bridge and stack them one on top of another next to the beam where the skull is placed. Simply jump from the top of the ghosts towards the skull and land on the beam.

I can get to where I need to grenade jump:) but can't figure out the timing!!I either blow up or get close but not all the way up before I fall all the way down:( any tips for the timing of the jump?

Never mind! I finally got it:) to any one else having a hard time with it all I can recommend is trial and error. Just keep restarting from a close checkpoint.

This one quite difficult. I found placing a ghost on the slope of the roof near the skull helped immensely. I threw a grenade on it, ran up it's wing and jumped, getting loads more air.

There is NO POSSIBLE way to "simply" stack 2 ghosts and jump so easily as they wrote here. Ive been trying for HOURS and still can't get the 2 ghosts to a position to let me get enough height to jump on the up and going to blow myself up now trying to grenade jump up *sigh*

I completely failed at the grenade jump tactic, but if you grab a portable cover thing earlier on you can go right to the edge near the skull, look back up the ramp and place it (if your not in its way it just falls off the ledge), then its a simple case of jumping on top and jumping to the skull.

I got this one on my second try. The grenade jump is easy. Throw a plasma grenade at the downward slope and jump towards the flat surface where the skull is.

The deployable cover technique works way way easier.

I tried to do the stack two ghosts recomendation and that didnt work so well, i felt like i was going to get enough air to land on the shelf but it never happened. Trial and air on the sticky grenade was how i got it done, didnt take too too long but still a real pain in the ass skull to get.

Had a hard time doing this without a drop shield. Managed to ride a chopper up the rocks to the side and then boost it onto the platform. Rode it over and parked it next to the pillar then just jumped onto it and off it. Easy. Way easier than nade jumping.

I did this the same way I got the "catch" skull on The Storm; go up to the roof with your friend and jump on top of him, then after you jump again, have him jump, then jump off of his jump to get to the beam.

If for any reason you don't have a deployable cover, suck at grenade jumping, and/or can't get the vehicles up the rocks on the left and onto the platform...

...You have almost a flat run up the cliff to the right. It's a very narrow path, but it's possible to walk up and jump onto the platform. I was able to get up there on foot, with a ghost and with a chopper, and jumped off the chopper to get up on the beam.
