    Don't flame me I am just trying to get some answers myself cause these days you don't know what to believe lol

    So what are your speculations on this?

    And courtesy of ONEARM ASSASSIN, here's a list of skulls, locations, and statistics:

    And thanks Superhotglue206 for this bit of information! You helped a lot!

    And Superhotglue, you have to keep working with us on this! There is a second skull on Floodgate!


    Ok so I figured if anybody is going to find this damn skull who else to go to then the cheaters/modders of 7S lol.

    So anybody have any news on this?

    EDIT: I have been searching around a bit and this is also what I have found. I honestly don't know what to think if its fake or not according to the pics its in the hex so Idk....That's why I came to the people at 7S :biggrin:

    Here is a theory about the Blind Skull in Halo 3 that might disturb you. Actually it concerns the three skulls I mention on the title, the Assassin Skull, the Blind Skull, an the Unknown Skull, but it mainly concerns the middle one. Some time ago, I was slacking on Halopedia searching board to board conversations and I found a conversation between two users (don't remember who) who were talking about a "hidden", might I say, Halo 3 skull, named Assassin Skull. An incredible link was provided by the first user to the second that lead to an image of the mainmenu.map file of Halo 3. On the image, skulls, and a brief description (clues) of the level they could be found. They all (the clues) start with the phrase "interred where..." and a two or three-word clue follows. But another clue, that had nothing to do with the text, is that the skulls were placed in an order that went:

    • Gold Skulls
      • Level
    • Silver Skulls
      • Level
    If my memory doesn't trick me, the Unknown Skull was not mentioned, but the Blind Skull surely was.
    You will now wonder: why doesn't that ***** JEA13 give out the link so we can solve this? Ok, here is the link. MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA (actually if your browser allows you to see the page tell me so on the comments)! But: issue:
    MOST IMPORTANT
    • The Assassin Skull was after the Mythic Skull and before the Blind Skull.
    • Clue for the Assassin skull is "interred where heroes fall"
    MOST IMPORTANT These suggest that it is:

    1. On Halo
    2. On Arrival
    3. On Sierra 117
    Other Clues and Facts:

    • The Assassin Skull can't be a gold skull since there is not an achievement on it. So all candidate levels on category gold skulls are stricken out.

    1. On Halo
    2. On Arrival
    3. On Sierra 117
    Me and Odysseas did search Halo for any possibilities and we found nothing. I searched the whole warthog run edges on theater mode but nothing. So its stricken out for sure.
    Interred where heroes fall could mean Arrival cause Master Chief and Cortana, who are indeed heroes, fall from the Dreadnought. Ya srsly! So Arrival fits. I tried the moment where that Marine checks the Master Chief. On his pad you can see MC's skull. I thought this could be the Assassin Skull, but nothing.

    1. On Halo
    2. On Arrival
    3. On Sierra 117
    So now only Sierra 117 remains. Surely it is not there, as it already has a silver and a gold skull, so nothing. But, after I reopened the link some days ago, and after some revisions on the Halo 3 Skulls page, I found out (remembered) that the Blind Skull's clue is "interred deep inside her tomb."...
    So, believe it or not, the Unknown Skull is not an oversight, but the Unknown Skull is the Blind Skull. So now we have a silver skull gap free on Sierra 117. It is the Assassin Skull with "interred where heroes fall". See why this isn't nonsense?!
    You might as well now say: The matching JEA13 did does not concur with what he said above:

    • Gold Skulls
      • Level
    • Silver Skulls
      • Level
    JEA13 says: But this is why we see what we see on Halo 3 now', my young apprentice. They made the changes very fast and without any attention. So a lot of oversights happened.
    CONCLUSION Original: Blind Skull on Cortana - Assassin Skull on Sierra 117 (both silver)
    Halo 3 now: Blind Skull on Cortana, Blind Skull on Sierra 117. See how messed up Halo 3 is? Bungie put the Blind Skull name on the Assassin, thus deleting the Assassin Skull effects along with the skull, left original Blind Skull unnamed, but effect remained on the original as well. PAY ATTENTION HERE: It's like copy-paste, but with skulls being the moving objects, not what moves objects. Hackers hack the game level by level, so they found the Blind Skull clone on Sierra 117 first. But original Blind Skull is on Cortana.

    What do you say?!

    Well just because it is in-game does not mean it can be unlocked. There are several items left in game code but never implimented, the assassins skull could be one of these items. It also helps to point out that the mainmenu's skull selector has a slot for all the skulls so-far unlocked, so there's no place for the assassin's skull to appear. I guess the second blind skull (the second one on Cortana) could be the assassin's skull, but since there's no in-game activator (because they decided to not use it), it's just sitting there. What also helps is the fact that it could have been originally inteded for use in-game, and even so-far implimented as to have been placed; however pushing it out the door, and with it not being tested (or for other reasons), it was removed, however its item in-game was forgotten about (aka the team forgot to remove it, but the activator script was still removed).

    The second skull on Cortana gives you a Spartan Laser on the level Halo, that is if you finish with it. I agree with Haxalot88, maybe they planned on adding it, but realized that it would be too beneficial for the player. Everyone makes mistakes now and then, even Bungie, my guess is they didn't remove it all the way. BUT it was interesting. Kudos.
