Halo 2 Anniversary Mobile and screen wallpapers

Halostarscope.com has been in the Halo community news lately with the cryptic message given via XBOX’s twitter account. Now it seems there are two Halo 2 Anniversary wallpapers you can get from the site.

My friend and fellow Halo enthusiast, ‘PensHalo‘ found two of them. No word on if there are more than these. I did try to find more and didn’t find any others.

These two screen and mobile wallpapers feature a Halo ring along with the Arbiter and Master Chief in the Halo 2 Anniversary graphics. Feel free to download both! Continue reading

HMCC/H2A Forge Map Awash: Detailed forge/playable space (It’s HUGE!)

I was curious just how big the foregable/playable space was in Awash. Awash is a new Forge map in the Halo 2 Anniversary Forge portion of the Halo Master Chief Collection.

Then to get the size of that, placed enough 1×1 blocks side by side on one of the sides of the grass tiles to get that measurement. It’s 30×30 (which is 300ft on one side). Continue reading

Halo 2 Anniversary Skulls

So the skulls for Halo 2 Anniversary have been found out.  This info was passed on to me by HFFL member Rythmic Warrior. There is a LOT more skulls than I had thought there would be.

I have to admit, some of these seem a bit ridiculous. And I can’t imagine have a LASO run with all of these active. That would be beyond cray cray… Continue reading
