How to unlock the Citadel Skull achievement

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

    From the middle of the map, go towards the blue side, and turn left in the hallway. You should see an arch as you turn. If you follow the wall to the top of this arch on the right hand side wall, you should be able to spot the skull sitting on top of a small beam.

    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:
    [3:12] - Skull 4 - Citadel

    ScribblesJawsIf you're having trouble with the timing like I was for some reason, you can just make a stack of crates or any other big objects like that to make a staircase up to it.

    Load up forge mode on Citadel. Follow the video below to find the skull. Once you find it, you might need to be creative to get it. You can try grabbing it while falling, but what I found easiest was to build 4 Forerunner Crates and stack them on top of each other under the skull. They are on page 4 of 7 in the forge building menu. Once you have those stacked, fly to the top, switch to spartan mode, and jump and hold RB (or X depending on your control scheme) to pick up the skull.

    olanmillsYou don't need to build anything. You can simply fly up close to it, look straight at it, and then switch to Spartan mode and hold cn_X to grab it as you fall.

    I have just made a map with the Boxes piled up to where the skull is. You can add me as a friend and download it off my File Share.

    The name of the map is "CITADEL SKULL"

    MAJORPOOPYSame here Bear. That's why I suggested the boxes in my solution. Good work

    DriftinDropBearI saw your solution Major, and I thought I would upload the map for other people having trouble.
