Halo 4 Unlockables/Cheats

Alternate ending
Successfully finish the game on the Legendary difficulty to view a secret ending after the credits end, including Master Chief being unmasked.

Waypoint glyph codes
First, select the "Halo: Waypoint" option from the main menu and download Halo: Waypoint to your Xbox 360. Then, start Halo: Waypoint, press X to enter the classified menu, and press X again to enter the code input screen. Enter one of the secret glyph codes listed below to unlock the corresponding bonus. Note: To use the "Raider" codes, you must have finished the first three episodes in Spartan Ops mode. To use the "Oni" and "Wiseguy" codes, you must first locate all seven terminals in the campaign missions.

Raider 1 - Raider Torso Armor and 500 XP

Raider 2 - Raider Shoulder Armor and 500 XP

Terminal locations

Search the indicated locations to find all seven terminals:

Terminal 1
In Chapter 2: Requiem, you will arrive at a large tower towards the end of the mission. Before climbing up the tower, kill the armored Hunters, and find a main ramp leading up to the central tower's elevator shaft. Look below the transparent ramp to find the first terminal.

Terminal 2
In Chapter 3: Forerunner, at the beginning of the mission, while searching for the first of two objectives, after Master Chief's screen flickers, Cortana will say "What's that distortion?" The terminal will be straight ahead, on the ground floor of the central Promethean building, beneath a circular structure with three columns.

Terminal 3
In Chapter 4: Infinity, after meeting up with the UNSC allied soldiers, there will be a cutscene. After it ends, turn around to find the terminal.

Terminal 4
In Chapter 5: Reclaimer, after getting Cortana back, you will be instructed to escape using an elevator. Before taking the elevator, as you enter the hall leading to it, turn right and head down the hallway to find the terminal.

Terminal 5
In Chapter 6: Shutdown, you will fly a Pelican to multiple locations. After you reach the Production Tower (third tower), Cortana will ask you to find the control room. Ride the gravity elevator up, then use the energy bridges to reach the objective. After you reach two Hunters, head back across the energy bridge you just crossed, and turn to the right to reach a new platform. The terminal is behind the isolated platform.

Terminal 6
In Chapter 7: Composer, after killing the two Hunters, there will follow a long cutscene with the Dr. Tillson. After the cutscene ends, look straight ahead for a building with "ATRIUM" written on it. Go below that building, inside a small, rocky cave, to find the terminal.

Terminal 7
In Chapter 8: Midnight, after crash landing on the enemy ship, you will be fighting Protheans through several chambers. Once you enter the third room, check behind the central pillar to find the terminal.

Tea-bagging enemies
In Multiplayer mode, summon a hologram over a recently killed enemy to tea-bag it.

Double Rainbow Easter Egg
In Chapter 5: Reclaimer, after destroying the alien mothership and landing in the desert below, enter a vehicle, and keep looking to the left. As you go through the canyons, you will eventually see a large ravine with waterfalls in the distance. Get out of the vehicle, and look down. Zoom in between the waterfalls in the distance to see a double rainbow. This is a reference to the Double Rainbow viral YouTube video.

Avatar Awards

Successfully complete the tasks indicated below to unlock the corresponding Avatar Awards:

Knight Helmet: Get the "Knight In White Assassination" achievement by assassinating a Knight in any Spartan Ops mission.

UNSC Infinity Hoodie (male/female): Get the "Not Some Recruit Anymore" achievement by ranking your Spartan-IV up to SR-5.

Platinum Mark IV Helmet: Get the "Wake Up, John" achievement by finishing the campaign on the Normal or higher difficulty.

Easy "Digging Up The Past" achievement
At the beginning of the game, immediately after talking to Cortana outside the cryotube, go down the hallway, and look left to find a set of stairs leading down. Go down the stairs to find a computer. Interact with it to watch a cutscene explaining the story from the first three Halo games, and get the "Digging Up The Past" achievement.

Easy "Explore The Floor" achievement
In Chapter 6: Shutdown, you will fly a Pelican to multiple locations. Once you reach the Production Tower (third tower), Cortana will say you have to locate the control room. Take the gravity elevator up, then cross the energy bridges toward the objective. Once you reach two Hunters, stand near the ledge on the platform. When one of the Hunters runs at you, use the jet pack to get out of the way. When it falls off the ledge, you will get the "Explore The Floor" achievement.

Easy "Give Him The Stick" achievement
You can set the difficulty to "Easy" before going for this achievement. In Chapter 7: Composer, start at the "Rally Point – Alpha" checkpoint, if you have already completed the chapter. You will soon meet a scientist that will give you a Thruster. In the next room, you will encounter two Hunters. Run past the circular lowered area, and up the ramp to reach the gun rack on the opposite side of the room, and grab the Sticky Detonator. If you ran ahead fast enough, the two Hunters will not see you, allowing you to shoot at their backs. Keep shooting them in their backs with the Sticky Detonator, moving to a safe distance, and then detonating the explosives. Get near the Hunters, and use the Thruster to get behind them so you can shoot them in the back. You only need about three to four hits to kill each Hunter on the Easy difficulty. Note: Beware; the Hunters might get killed by the marine allies as well. If one of the Hunters gets killed, you will have to restart from the previous checkpoint, and try again to get the "Give Him The Stick" achievement.

Easy "Midnight Launch" achievement
In Chapter 2: Requiem, walk through the wreckage, and you will soon come across an overturned Warthog. Roll the vehicle over, and get inside. Drive forward while keeping close to the left wall. Keep looking to the left; you will soon see a half-circular entrance with a ramp inside. You must jump off this ramp at midnight to get the achievement. After reaching this point, save the game. Then, disconnect the Xbox 360 from the internet, and ensure your saved game file is on the hard drive, and not on the cloud storage. At the Xbox 360 dashboard, go to "System Settings", "Console Settings", and select "Clock, Date & Time". Set the system clock to around 11:50 p.m. to ensure you have plenty of time to reach the ramp again. Play Chapter 2: Requiem again, find the Warthog, drive it to the circular entrance. Press Xbox Guide to view the clock. Once the clock reaches midnight, drive through the entrance and up the ramp. Once you drive off the ramp, you should get the "Midnight Launch" achievement.

Easy "Roses vs Violets" achievement
In Episode 1: Chapter 5 - The Cauldron in Spartan Ops mode, take the DMR at the beginning of the chapter unless you have another scoped weapon. Kill the first group of enemies, then climb up the ramp. Go over some physical and energy barricades, and jump onto the ledge. Look down into the lava below using a scoped weapon. There is a small box stuck in the rocks. Shoot it, and you will hear a unique sound and get the "Roses vs Violets" achievement.
