Several skulls were added after one of the early patches to the game. In particular, the Iron skull wasn't in the playlist initially:https://www.halowaypoint.com/en-us/news/the-halo-bulletin-yo...The initial list was:Black Eye, Boom, Fog, Eye Patch, Foreign, Famine, Malfunction, RecessionThe new list is (bolded skulls are new):Black Eye, Eye Patch, Famine, Fog, Foreign, Iron, Mythic, Recession, Boom, Grunt Birthday Party, Grunt Funeral, MalfunctionThe Iron skull of course makes it so you have to quit and reload any time you die, which is a major annoyance. The Mythic skull gives enemies increased health, which means you have to go for headshots on the Covenant or you will run out of ammo; and the flood are much harder to kill as well. GBP doesn't do anything of note, but Grunt Funeral is probably the most interesting skull added as it actually can help you quite a bit especially in the first half of the game. Combined with the Boom skull you can strategically use grunts to clear out large swaths of Covenant especially in the first half of the game.IMO, it's actually a tougher call than it seems between the two sets of skulls. Not having Iron and Mythic on will save you lots of annoyance, but Grunt Funeral in the new list is actually a mostly beneficial skull that can really make some of the earlier levels in particular a lot quicker and easier. Honestly, I would probably just go with the current list and deal with the Iron and Mythic skulls. The hardest level of the game on LASO is Truth and Reconciliation, mainly due to a severe lack of ammo, and the Grunt Funeral skull helps there a lot, especially during the fight right after you get onto the ship. It's going to be hard no matter how you do it though, so good luck.
