    - Mission: The Covenant (works in co-op as well)
    - Difficulty: Normal or higher
    - Mission has to be started from the beginnning
    The IWHBYD Skull will be at the very end of the mission "The Covenant". When you first come to the room ignore the 7 rings and fight your way to the end where you have to extend the bridge. This will trigger a cutscene and you will have to fight your way back. Once you are back at the beginning of the room you will have to jump through the rings in a specific order.

    The rings are numbered from 1-7, starting at the beginning all the way back to where you extended the bridge. (0:51)

    Always jump through the rings facing the extended bridge. If you make a mistake you can simply start at the first ring which is 4.

    4 6 5 4 5 3 4

    LONG VERSION: (Could be necessary in co-op but i'm not entirely sure)
    If the short combination doesn't work you will have to try this sequence.
    4 5 6 5 7 6 5 4 1 2 3 2 7 2 1 3 4 6 7 5 4 6 5 4 5 3 4

    If you did it correctly the rings will light up and you can collect the skull at the extended bridge.

    Thanks to Breadly Weapon, Pokutescurse and shelbygt5252 for the heads up and confirmation on the long sequence :)

    KozzayThanks for the long version. Was in co-op and did the short version about 6 times. Can confirm long version works if you use two people to hop through the rings. Thanks again!

    FearZaftYeah I’m having trouble with the rings spawning myself. Normal. Solo. I’ve repeated the mission twice

    ch1cag0steveThe rings did not appear, but jumping through the air in the correct order had the skull appear.

    Ninja ScrollThey’re always excellent for sure. This one was no exception. Took me a few tries. It was probably due to not jumping through them correctly. +1

    Leo AscendentThe rings didn't spawn, never seen that happen, nor can I find any record of it happening to anyone else.

    Mission: The Covenant - Skull (IWHBYD) - Inside the structure mentioned above, you have to play the Halo theme using the holographic rings near the end of the level. You’ll reach a room with these holographic rings and lots of Brutes enemies. Clear the room of enemies and activate the bridge at the far end, then kill off all the Flood that show up. When it’s time to head out, go all the way back to where you entered but do NOT drop down the shaft. Instead, turn back around. From here, the nearest ring is #1 and the furthest is #7. Jump through the rings in the following order: 4654534. This spawns the skull at the small light-bridge at the far end of the room past ring #7. Check the video starting at 06:09 for a visual example.

    I found this really well done video which explains step by step how to get the skull IWHBYD. The video is not for the XBOX ONE version of the game but it works fine. The credits for the video goes to its author.
