Now taking the Skulls into consideration, famous Twitch streamer Charlie aka ‘Cr1tikal’ has announced a tricky challenge for all the gamers of the franchise. He’s issued a $20,000 challenge to beat Halo 2’s total campaign on legendary difficulty by applying every skull modifier.

The toughest level in the Xbox classic is generally known as Legendary All Skulls On (LASO). Basically, it not only sets the game on Legendary but also reveals a range of modifiers set by the skulls. It means that the enemies will get more health during the combat while the player will have less ammo to fight with.

Speaking of the rules for the $20,000 bounty challenge, then they are very simple. One has to play the entire game by doing livestream, either on YouTube or Twitch. The participant has to make sure that 13 skulls are initially on with the Legendary difficulty. However, one skull which is known as ‘Envy’ needs to be turned off. That’s because the use of it will make the challenge less fatal.
