How to unlock the Orbital Skull achievement

    The following skull can be picked up in Forge mode on the map Orbital.

    In this almost symmetrical map, you'll want to go to the middle connecting bridges. From there you will see a large and long metal wall. While looking at this wall, if you follow up the right hand side, you will see two tiers of small platforms poking out the side of the wall. Use the forge mode to ascend to the highest platform, and you should be able to find this skull. You may have to crouch and land on a precise point in order to be able to pick it up.

    Exit forge mode and make sure you pick up the skull.

    It can be seen in the video below, and I have included a timestamp of its exact location:
    [0:39] - Skull 2 - Orbital

    Start up the MP map Orbital in Forge mode. This map is one big U-turn. Go to the turning point where the rocket launcher is. The skull is very well hidden high up here.

    Press cn_up and fly up cn_RB to a small ledge where you will be able to stand when you go back into the normal mode. Crouch and you can collect the Orbital Skull from here.

    Load up Orbital in forge and head to the pit in the middle. Turn around and you'll see a wall with red lights running up it. Fly up to the top right and you'll see the skull hiding in a gap. Go the the edge of that small gap and switch to spartan form. Crouch walk around the edge slowly, and you'll be able to pick up the skull without falling off the ledge. the video shows the exact location.
