Subject: Hard to Find 'Easter Eggs'

Let's see how many we can come up with.

Pillar of Autumn: The Megg - for an employee's girlfriend. Very tricky to get to.

AotCR: Johnson's Speech - You have to slide down the wall from the first bridge. This isn't heard in the game unless you do this trick.
Siege of Madrigal - Fly high up outside of the control room and land on the right side of the 3rd structure around the light beams. Wait a few seconds to hear the music.

343 Guilty Spark: Dead Marines in start area - You have to go down the lift, then come back up immediately. Dead Marines are scattered from the structure entrance all the way back to the crashed Pelican. Some Grunts stuck in a tall tree and the Spirit too.

The Maw: Rex(not in CE:A!) - Land just to the left during the big jump and head into the left corridor.
Food Nipple Grunt

Before that, when you first come across the Sentinels vs. Covies fight (it's the only one). There should be some infection forms chasing a Spec Ops Grunt. Believe it or not, infection forms will leech on the human combat form, killing it.

Friggin deal with it

AotTCr- Landing a banshee on the third tier of the control room on the right side to hear "Seige of Madrigal".

  • 09.24.2012 6:45 AM PDT

343GS - Unarmed Marine. It's kind of creepy to be honest...

Johnson's speech

It's funny, i've encountered almost every single easter egg on Halo since it's release, even the bridge jumping trick but now after 10 plus years, i finally see an easter egg i've never seen before.

Thankyou SG for showing me this, looks like it's time to recreate that for myself tomorrow xD

"I will show you how a true Prussian officer fights!"

"And i will show you where the iron crosses grow..."

- "Cross of Iron"

Great post OP! I have never heard Johnson's speech on AOTCR before.

343 Guilty Spark:
If you stay in the Pelican and wait til it lands you can drop down on the elevator room from above. When the Covie flee from the room in panic you can actually see AR's jutting from the walls of the room hosing bullets into their backs. No signs of who is firing them though.

They're not in the walls. They're floating in the air. This is associated with the lone Marine standing out in the middle of nowhere on the edge of the map, as you find him the same way.

Would the dead Flood bodies that appear if you go to the locked door (but don't approach it) and go back up the lift count as 'hard to find'?

Getting to the cutscene room on 343. That clip is so difficult...

1. Marine & Grunt bodies, not flood.
2. You only need to go down the lift and back up.

Funny, I recall seeing a bunch of Elite combat forms all over the place.

Have you tested it in the manner I suggested? Maybe it's a PC exclusive?

Actually, come to think of it I found one combat form a few years back up on the cliffs somewhere, but never found it again.
