Grab the Elder Signs achievement in Halo: The Master Chief Collection this Earth Day

By Sean Carey,
April 22nd marks Earth Day; an event celebrated around the world to drum up support for environmental protection. Halo also marks the occasion by making one of the sigils needed to obtain the Elder Signs achievement in Halo: The Master Chief Collection viewable.

To unlock this achievement, you need to find and view two different sigils on the Halo 3 map, Valhalla. These sigils only appear on certain days of the year and are located on the far wall behind the turret. On April 22nd, a skull with a recycling sign will be visible. The last time you could have viewed one of these special signs was on January 1st, so hopefully, you only need one more to grab this achievement. Yazite's guide details that you can do this in Forge, custom games or even in online matchmaking.
