* Let's start with the basics: The Jackals ''[[AliensSpeakingEnglish speak English]]'' for the first time in the franchise. It hits UncannyValley territory ''hard'', as they don't speak in high-pitched squawks like you'd expect, but rather a raspy, scratchy, stilted voice, like a dying old man yelling at you.
** The Jackals are also laughing a few times in campaign. It comes across as LaughingMad. Remember how they said Jackals were "too bloodthirsty" to serve as proper snipers? Now we get to ''hear'' why.
* The truth about what happened on the Office of Naval Intelligence's science vessel ''Argent Moon'', which Blue Team was sent to secure after the Covenant captured it: [[spoiler:the Covenant never had to fire a shot, as the crew had already been killed by a bioweapon that ''liquefies skin off the body''. The worst part? This was manufactured by ONI for use against humans, and was used in an unauthorized experiment that escaped quarantine, got into the air vents, and killed the entire crew]]. At this point, one really has to wonder just ''what'' ONI is fighting for.

* Let's start Legendary Ending. [[spoiler:Rogue!Cortana has ''a [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt Halo]]''.]]
* It's hard to say which is worse: [[spoiler:Cortana is still rampant, or she's ''not'' rampant and just [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity mad
with the basics: The Jackals ''[[AliensSpeakingEnglish speak English]]'' for the first time power]]. Either way, when she shows her true nature to Fireteam Osiris, her ranting and sneering is just ''chilling''. Even worse is that she's utterly convinced she's in the franchise. It hits UncannyValley territory ''hard'', as they don't speak right, that the Spartan-IV's and their kind deserve to ''die'' and that Chief will agree with her when she wakes him from stasis in high-pitched squawks like you'd expect, but rather a raspy, scratchy, stilted voice, like a dying old man yelling at you.

ten thousand years.]]
* The truth about what happened on the Office of Naval Intelligence's science vessel ''Argent Moon'', which the derelict ship of the eponymous second mission that Blue Team was is sent to secure after recover from Covenant forces. At first you could be forgiven for thinking that the Covenant captured it: [[spoiler:the found it and killed everyone aboard. But it turns out, the ''Moon'' was already a GhostShip long before Kig-Yar scouts stumbled upon it. ONI scientists had been working on an airborne bioweapon, and it somehow got loose. The result, as hinted by numerous dessicated corpses with an odd residue beneath them, was everyone aboard the entire vessel dying horrifically - according to a record by the shipboard AI, those who were at ground zero for the containment breach (who died instantly as their soft tissues ''liquefied'' as a result) were "the lucky ones".
** The presence of perfectly healthy
Covenant never had to fire a shot, as aboard the crew had already been killed by moon shows that the bioweapon only affects humans. Which begs the question: why in the hell did ONI approve the creation of a bioweapon that ''liquefies skin off only affects the body''. The worst part? This was manufactured by ONI species it claims to protect?
* Hearing the Jackals [[AliensSpeakingEnglish speak English]]
for use against humans, and was used the first time in the franchise is a little jarring.
--> FAAAALSE ARBITER! KILL! KILL!
* There's
an unauthorized experiment EasterEgg on the multiplayer map "Rig". While the trigger for it is simple [[labelnote:*]] After GroundPound-ing a platform in the BottomlessPit in the middle of the map, you shoot two cores coming out of their silos, on the edge of the map.[[/labelnote]], the result isn't. [[spoiler: You hear [[HellIsThatNoise a piercing screech]] as a rig on the horizon is suddenly lifted from below by '''''[[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever a titanic]] [[PrecisionFStrike fucking]] SandWorm that escaped quarantine, got into the air vents, and killed the entire crew]]. At this point, makes Literature/{{Dune}}'s sandworms look like maggots.]]''''' One can only hope that no one really has to wonder just ''what'' ONI is fighting for.was on that rig.

*** The infection forms seem to bounce off your shields causing only minimal damage, a burst from the assault rifle can take down a lot of them at once. Surely the flood are only a true threat for unarmored Marines, not a Mjolnir equipped super soldier like you. This is going to be easy. The combat forms show up...

** In addition to the graphic descriptions and chilling implications, the Flood's ability to corrupt is shown to extend far beyond mere biological matter.
*** The Flood's ability to subvert A.I.s was hinted at via Cortana and Mendicant Bias in Halo 3, but this ability was taken to it's logical extreme when warring against the Forerunners, who were hit with a full on ''logic plague''. Essentially, the flood was able to dominate and enslave A.I.s and non-sapient data even faster than biological beings, and since the Forerunners utilized ancillas in almost every aspect of their lives, everything they relied upon started to betray them even before the flood attacked. Imagine a evolving, self aware computer virus that doesn't just corrupt data, but turns it ''actively malevolent''.
