Catch Skull: Pull pin. Count to three. Throw.

Catch Skull, The Storm, Halo 3

The Catch skull is on the level The Storm. The effect is it makes EVERYTHING get more grenades. When I mean everything, I mean everything. One day while I was playing I had a flood throw a sticky at me. A STICKY+FLOOD=ldjfhglisudgbslbv

ADMIN NOTE: I've never seen Flood throw grenades, even on Cortana on legendary with the Catch skull on, so I'm not actually sure this is possible.

I couldn't believe it! Oh well, it only happened once so I doubt it will ever happen again. Anyways, onto finding the skull.

Step one
After you get into the first area with the two Wraiths (one normal, one Anti-Air) kill all enemy infantry.

Step two
Kill all the ghosts.

Step three
Kill the brutes in both of the Wraith turrets
!!!!!!WARNING!!!!!!
Don't kill the wraiths, only their gunners.

Step four
There is a big pillar to the right of the Anti-Air Wraith, grenade jump onto it OR take the warthog from the begining of the level and sit it next to the pillar. Once it is next to the pillar, jump ontto the pillar.

Step five
The skull is right in front of you. Unless you don't want the skull, pick it up.

Another 10g=^_^
Happy Skull Hunting!

Also, I probably won't post another skull guide for a couple of days just to let some of you find the skulls on your own. ^_^

Re: Catch Skull: Pull pin. Count to three. Throw.

I've done some experiments, and it seems that the skull's presence is tied to the life of a single individual - the pilot of the standard plasma-mortar Wraith on the corner platform with the exit door. The skull disappears only when he dies. You can kill everyone else with impunity, or leave them alive.

It's pure coincidence, of course, that this individual has the means and opportunity to make it difficult to place a vehicle at the high point of the tower base for use as a jump platform...

I'm sorry to object but thats not possible. I killed everything all the enemies and saved the regular wraith tank (barely) and though it took me two chances to get it.

the first try it disappeared on me when I went to get my wraith to use as a stepping ladder. I saw it up there, you can see it in plain sight with a scope but when I finally got up it was gone.

My second attempt ran much quicker than the first.. so it may be a time limit you have to get it.

I think you've misunderstood. The above says that when you kill that Wraith's pilot, the skull despawns.

If you're jacking the Wraith, you're killing the pilot-- so the skull will despawn at that point.

The above suggests leaving that Wraith alone and killing everything else before attempting to get the skull.

It's not a time limit. But if you kill or jack that Wraith, it'll be gone. If you want to make a stepladder, use hogs and/or ghosts.

Then explain to me how I obtained the skull by jacking the wraith? My experience contradicts what has been said.

I'll go play the level again, and go through my whole procedure then upload the clip to bungie.net

Also I ran my skull collecting campaign on heroic instead of legendary.

Oh and I did say before that the skull disappeared the first time I jacked the wraith, why did it remain the second time?

UPDATE: Before anyone replies, I've been at trying to reproduce my original results for a good hour or so now... with little success. On a few occasions the skull would remain after hi-jacking the wraith but when the camera shifts to turn around the skull would disappear. Anyone willing to offer an explanation as to why my original attempt succeeded?

Re: Catch Skull: Pull pin. Count to three. Throw.

As the author of the contended post, perhaps I should explain how I reached my conclusion:

I observed multiple run-throughs of this section in replay, each time freezing the action just after the entry door opened, detaching the camera, flying it over to the skull platform, and setting it up to look back over the platform with a good overview of the arena, then re-starting the action.

The skull is not present as you enter. It doesn't spawn until at or about the first checkpoint after that, which appears to be consistent with the spawning of the Wraith pilot, off-scene, before the Phantom carrying the Wraith enters.

In every variant I tried, the despawn (thanks for the word, Narcogen) trigger appeared to be the death of the Wraith pilot.

It is, of course, possible that there are other factors at work. All I can say is that this theory accounts for what I have personally observed, in multiple cases.

Incidentally, if anyone does try to exploit this apparent linkage, most vehicles in the arena will very likely have been destroyed by the time all other enemies have been eliminated. However, there's an overturned troop-carrier Warthog on the lakebed just below the entry door which is screened from the Wraith by the central pier. The top of the roll-cage makes a perfect jump platform. Also, while the Wraith will quickly destroy any vehicle you place, it won't fire on you while you're up on top, collecting the skull.

If your skull never spawns in the first place, it's because you need to beat the whole game on at least normal. That's what happened to me

Word to the wise-- invite someone to play coop if you want their help getting the skull, but DO NOT let them recover your GT and get it for you-- you'll very likely either get your account stolen or banned.

IWHBYD Skull

The actual number is 4 6 5 4 5 3 4 and its much easier to just go on youtube and watch a walkthrough but just a heads up,,,,, the hardest part is actually jumping through the rings it took me like three times to do it because jumping through the rings is the hardest part... i suggest staring at the floor then jumpoing because then youll be sure you jumped through it.... but yeah thats the actual order, good luck. But also ive been trying for the past week to get this skull and it just isnt working and its leading me to believe that maybe you can only have one attempt per day/ 24 hours. So one attempt then it doest spawn again untill 24 hours... i dont have proof but its just a thought. Good Luck with both skulls!!!!
