Halo 4
Follow our Halo 4 Terminal Guide, Unlock and See the Secrets Within
Written By
View author's profile

When we embarked on a mission to find all seven of Halo 4’s terminals, we never thought things would lead us to the depth and intrigue that laid waiting for us at the end of our journey.

Not only have we had the chance to whip up a Halo 4 terminal guide in the days preceding the game’s launch, you know, so you can get that 50G achievement with ease, but we’ve also had chance to check out the marvellous surprise waiting for us and now you can too. Below, in addition to the terminal guide, we’re able to bring you the very unlockable videos that serve as your reward for finding all the terminals. But wait, there’s more… or at least, there will be eventually.

Elsewhere in Waypoint resides what is described as a “Section 3 Archive Video,” but in order to unlock it, you need a code. The description says “Find all the Domain Terminals in the Halo 4 Campaign and pay attention to the “Cryptum” video – which is the last video in the set. See the symbols at the end? Yes, well, they form part of the code that unlocks said video. Notice the interlocking jigsaw puzzle like edges? They also serve as part of the puzzle. By the looks of it, it’s a 10 digit code, 5 symbols of which we have here. Now all we need is another 5 and the order, then we can unlock the video. Feel free to band together in the comments for the greater good.

343 has really outdone itself here with the brilliant animated shorts that you unlock for finding all the terminals and if Halo 4 wasn’t proof alone that the studio has the knowledge, passion and dedication to take the franchise to a new level, then this surely settles it. I recommend that you seek them all out for yourself and unlock the secrets on your own, but we understand that time isn’t a luxury for everyone these days so we’ve brought them all here for you to soak up should that be the case. As soon as we crack that code, we’ll bring you that video too. You know, because we’re nice like that.

For some invaluable tips on how to beat Halo 4 on Legendary, head here. For our definitive Halo 4 review, hit this here link.

@#1 - There is a pattern emerging here, you know... big games, big launches, lots of people playing them, lots of people want information that will help them, that's what we're doing, and after 6 and a half years of doing this, I'm fairly sure we know what we're doing.

If you've got a problem why don't you address them privately rather than being a prick and looking like a troll when expressing it on here.

PM them if you think it's so important but know that I would PM them saying I think their content is great

Okay, so I've ripped out the symbols and thrown them into this image. Three of them go together like a jigsaw puzzle. Notice, all the symbols have two dots above them. On the 343 forums, the guys have been piecing together a one dot sequence and a four dot sequence, no two dot sequence though.

@#19 - Jake, the two-dot code or another code? There are actually about 4 codes in all. Three of them have been solved, this one to the best of my knowledge hasn't.

There are at least two missing peices from the video code if you place the puzzle together there is not a beginning and a end peice. Lets assume its a ten digit code and say we are missing five peices

A little off topic I know but..
I just purchased the standard Halo 4 in GAME and the young lady that took my readies gave me a code to unlock the specialisations. Is this correct or should I have purchased the £70 behemoth to get this?!

I have to agree with #1 ive never seen this site make a article for getting achievements unless you was telling the public this achievement is glitch. I thought if we wanted a guide on how to get a achievement arent we suppose to go to the forum section then. Never seen you guys make a article on getting gears of war 3 collectables or even halo combat evolved ,cuz u know big games big releases right?

@#33 - The point was to bring you the reward videos in one easy to watch package and get people to band together to solve the last clue. We may as well bring you a walkthrough video at the same time, right?

Wish you had a written version with location of terminals, I usually don't have video handy when playing but can always read on my cell phone.. Oh well, guess I will have to get it somewhere else.

Sweet. Picked up my limited edition copy after work and played for a good 30 minutes. I found the first terminal. Believe it or not, I'm not that big of a Halo fan (Three was brilliant, I loved ODST, but I can't stand Reach), but this game is freaking beautiful.

Also, to the folks complaining about the this post...well, its a site dedicated to gaming, Halo 4 is the new hotness with a huge following, kind of makes sense to have more than usual articles on Halo 4. Just my $.02.

@1 If you don't like this site, then go? I love it, to be honest. The site is easy to use and yet, it's very effective. I love it more than IGN or Gamestop, and I think it's a shame this doesn't deserve all the attention it deserves.

Sorry people when I typed this up for you this is the Wiseguy code:

Wiseguy code: 9 W E 6 2 1 K N 8 F

I forgot to put in the K
For those who do not know the WiseGuy code is the name of the Archive Code that the author of this topic was trying to figure out.
