Halo 2 Cheat Codes
The fight to save humanity from the Covenant continues in Halo 2. In the first game, you could only control the Master Chief, yet in the second title you get to take the controls of Covenant forces. Skulls in Halo 2 make the game easier or more difficult for the player, depending if you know the right Halo cheats to use.
If you wish to play the game without seeing the Master Chief's weapons, shields, armor or health, have the master chief use a crouch jump to reach the light on the top of the door. Touch the skull that says "blind". The lack of displays may make things more challenging for certain gamers, but most people find this method annoying. Turn off blind mode by saving the game and turning off the Xbox. You can also exit this mode by going to the campaign select mode. Choose the Cairo station mission and skip the cut scenes. Master Chief will enter the game with his heads-up display intact.

Get Ready for Halo Wars
These cheats should help a player get through the first person shooters that make up the Halo series. The real-time strategy game has its own series of cheats, but offers players a chance the opportunity to command the Flood, Covenant and UNSC units that make up the Halo universe. Halo Wars, sadly, unlike the other Xbox titles was not made available for the PC. Xbox 360 emulators can overcome this problem for those who find console controls difficult to use when they need to control many units at the same time. People who do not like the RTS genre may wish to skip Halo Wars entirely.
