Halo CE terminal locations: All Combat Evolved terminals in Master Chief Collection

Master Chief in Halo CE343 Industries

Here’s where to find each of the Halo Combat Evolved terminal locations in the Anniversary edition included in the Master Chief Collection.

Halo CE terminals were added to the first Halo game as part of its remaster for the MCC. The anniversary edition of Halo Combat Evolved borrowed the feature from Halo 3, which is where terminals first appeared, and they’re also found in the Master Chief Collection.

Terminals in Halo CE exist in the game’s campaign mainly for achievement hunters, but they also offer little lore drops for players keen to learn more about the Halo universe. Halo CE terminals can even provide clues to help players complete a level.

With that in mind, here’s every Halo CE terminal location.
