2. Halo 2 Skulls > 8. Eliminate the HUD

Eliminate the HUD

The Blind skull will clean up your view and allow you to get great screenshots.

The Blind skull has a few advantages over the other skulls. For example, you can activate it on any difficulty setting, and it’s right at the beginning of the Outskirts level. When you pick up this skull, the message “Blind” will appear onscreen and your Heads Up Display (HUD) will disappear.

This skull is Bungie’s non-modded gift to Halo 2 screenshots (the modded version is Aztec’s Spectator Mod [Hack #87] ). Instead of the busy look of the HUD, this skull allows you to hide all of that information. The downside of the clean look is that you won’t have the benefit of information such as your reticle or your motion detector. In fact, you won’t even know how much ammo you have or how many grenades you are holding. Although it makes playing the game harder, the Blind skull is a real treat for those of us who take Halo screenshots (see Figure 2-7).
