Skulls Page

Skulls are found throughout Halo 2. All but one require you to be playing on Legendary to find them. The exception to this rule is the Blind skull. To get the effect of a skull, you simply have to pick it up by holding X. You don't have to hold the skull or finish a level with the skull to keep the effect. The effect of skulls last until you turn off your Xbox. The effects carry over into new campaign games, and work on all difficulties once you pick them up. Skulls do NOT effect Multiplayer games at all.
To remove the skull effect follow these directions:
Step 1: Get a skull
Step 2: Turn off your Xbox
Step 3: Turn on your Xbox
Step 4: Congratulate yourself on this newly overcome challenge, it was quite a task wasn't it?

Once he says this, get in the elevator, and go down to the tram. Get on the tram, and face towards the INSIDE of the building. Press up against the glass doors towards the inside of the building.

Once you've cleared the room, look towards the outside -- literally out into space. You should see the dual tram tracks, and some diagonal supports holding up the tram tracks. You'll also note that the diagonal supports in the center are close together. One of those supports goes down the side of the wall near where one of the glass railings is. You can jump on the post for the glass railing and jump up onto the diagonal railing. From here, jump to the tram track and follow it all the way down towards the door you originally came in.
