The Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary terminals are short videos accessible on all levels of the game, and feature animations and narrations by 343 Guilty Spark and have many connections to Halo 4. The terminals were produced by The Sequence Group, and were written by 343 Industries.

This terminal is located in the tunnel after you've saved the first squad of marines. Go into the tunnel to the part where you have to jump.

3.The Truth and Reconciliation

This terminal is located after you clear the bridge, look for a pink, flashing holographic console where the Elite Zealot once stood, it is the middle panel on the raised platform, hard to miss.

7.The Library

The terminal is found on the third floor. As you exit the blast door, look for a yellow light across the gap where the lift sits, then make your way there by jumping over the supports that ring the gap. This code translates to "RINGS".

12.Wake up John

This terminal was removed by 343 industries, however, if you unlocked the terminal before they removed it, you will have a video now labeled ???, and description ????. If you are lucky enough to have unlocked it in time, when you play it, you will recieve a color testing screen and tone as well as two lines of text. The two lines of text are as follows:For decades we have battled an alien enemy we do not understand. Unprovoked, they brought our civilization to it's knees, and forced us into hiding.
