    Map: The Covenant

    Directions:

    1 - After deactivating the first tower, there is a part in the level where you have to fly a Hornet to the third tower. As you hop into the Hornet, the title If You Want It Done Right will be displayed—if it isn't, then no skull will appear.

    2 - On your way to the third tower, you will see the second tower (which was disabled by the Elites). This is also the tower with the Terminal. Fly over to it.

    3 - There is a long, flat, semi-enclosed part of the tower that extends out over the ocean. There is a very tall ramp that leads up to it. At the end of the extension you will find the Thunderstorm Skull.

    Note: Restarting from Rally Point Alpha allows you to go to the skull's location, but no skull is present. Also, the "Too Close to the Sun" achievement can be unlocked from the skull location.

    GrumblejayTo find most of the skulls I believe that you have to first finish the campaign on normal.

    Here is my HD Game Guide for all the Skulls and Terminals in Halo 3. I have it in HD with in depth commentary to make the guide as easy to follow as possible. Every item has a timestamp in the video description. The timestamp for this skull is: 09:50
