Halo 3 Easter Eggs

A marathon terminal

Marathon Man (All Halo 3 Terminals)

The Marathon Man is a 40 gamer score achievement in Halo 3 which you can unlock by finding and accessing all hidden terminals in the campaign. Terminals were a series of computers stations and teleporters found in the Marathon trilogy, a series which has contributed Easter Eggs to all of Bungie later games.

The Ark

Terminal 1
The first terminal is found the first time you walk inside (in a small hallway). The first time you go inside, you will see a door almost immediately on the left. Simply enter this area of the level to find the first of the seven terminals.

Terminal 2.
When you go inside the structure to let the tanks across the bridge of light, there will be a Terminal almost directly behind the controls for the bridge. It?s an easy find!

Terminal 3.
You?ll miss this terminal if you are not careful. After defeating the scarab, you will head into a large structure. There will be a room with several sleeping grunts. Nearly directly following this room is another room in which you can take two different directions. There is a door, and a staircase (both eventually lead to the next room). Underneath the staircase is an additional door that leads to the 3rd terminal.

The covenant

Terminal 4.
After you have shut down the first shield generator, go down in the lift as usual but when you get to the bottom don't jump off. On one side there will be a room you can jump over to from the lift. The terminal is in there.

Terminal 5.
After you have got your hornet do not fly to you objective yet, along the way there will be a forerunner installation jutting out of the cliff to your right. Land there and at the back off the building in a room you will find the terminal, you can find and claim the Thunderstorm skull if you haven't got it yet it's located near by.

Terminal 6.
When you have disabled the last shield generator come back down the lift and to one side there will be a room you can jump over to, there terminal is inside.


Terminal 7.
Near the beginning of the level continue as usual but when you come to the part where the path slopes down to the base of the control room take a right turn into a small passage. Cortana will say something like "Chief where are you going?", ignore her and keep going. At the end of the passage way Cortana will say "wait go back". Take a left and the terminal will be there.

Happy terminal hunting. And remember to stay in the terminal until it kicks you out or it will not save and you will end up not getting the achievement.

Suicidal Marine

Spawning in Floodgate, any difficulty, follow the path in town, once you get to the gates that are damaged, go into the left alley, and go into the courtyard with Marines and Flood fighting, go into the structure on the right of the ramp and see a Marine get infected, dodge him and go left into the big Marine and Flood battle go into the next big room and get onto the bridge in the middle by taking some stairs near the right of itself. Go across and into the room with a hole in the middle of it, jump down and a cutscene of Cortana is there, get out of the room by walking through some doors in the back, this will take you on the other side of where the ramp was in the courtyard. On the right wall of the room, there should be a door that leads to a small room, and some more Flood will come after you. And there will be 2 walls splitting the room, ignore the doors, you can't go through them. Once your done moving around the second wall, there should be an open door, and by now you can hear the Marine sobbing about killing his infected teammates. If you stay there long enough (I estimate 10 minutes or so, maybe less.) the Marine that was sobbing will shoot himself in the head with a pistol. You can kill him also.

Easter Egg Image

Lone Monkey Man

On Sierra 117, on the opposite side of the river where jackals may appear and shoot you, to the left zoom in and you may see a lone monkey man.

Spawn in sandtrap with an invulnerable shield. Be in forge to if you want to. But go to the invisable barrier and walk back and forth into it then end the game ok. Then go to theater mode put the camera at the barrier were you walked into it. Walk into camera until your body pushs the camera thru the barrier. Try a couple times until the camera goes thru the barrier. Then fly to one of the towers lining up around the level that have lights on it. at the top of each tower there will be an easter egg with letters and will be blue. But be carefull they're very small. Good Luck with it.

Longshore Date Messages

The words Suck It Fronk is an in Halo 3's DLC map Longshore. It is located inside the freezer and is easier to see with the turret glitch. The words are on the right hand side but must be seen at an angle in order to fully read, as it is hard to see when looking straight at it. It is a bitmap, and therefore takes no effect when a grenade is thrown in its direction or shot at. It's likely a reference to the food brand Fronk's

Like the Canteen's Chalkboard, Suck it Fronk also changes on holidays.

Christmas Day: Seventh Column
Bungie Day: The sign reads "7/7/7"
Halloween: A skull
July 4: The sign reads "Home of The Free"
Cinco De Mayo: The sign reads "Root Beer @ Bob's Place"
New Years Day: The sign reads "Flash Freeze This"
Earth Day: An image of Fronk is there with the words "Save me" above him and "Eat Beef" below him. This is possibly a reference to the popular Advice Dog images found throughout the internet, as two completely different and unrelated pieces of advice are listed above and below a dogs head
Veterans Day: A Spartan hand giving a "rock on" gesture.

We all know of the Food Nipple grunt of Halo:CE, but now there is another. While riding your Warthog through the end of the level, listen to what Cortana is saying.

(You'll have to restart from the last checkpoint as you wont have enough time to go back to your hog) Walk up to it and it will say the soon to be classic line, "Hey demon, the jerk store called, and they're all out of you!" and a few other things. He'll then say that if you don't kill him, he'll shine your boots. He'll shine your helmet. And then eventually say something about not knowing what he's doing half the time becuase of "the gas". Well what are you waiting for, go find him!
