"HI BEN" Easter egg


"HI BEN" is an Easter egg written on the ceiling of a hidden room in the Halo 2 level Regret. There is also a "rock on" hand sign in the corner.


You will need a Sniper Rifle or Beam Rifle to see the writing.

Method 1

The Sputnik skull is required for this.

Start the level Regret and proceed until you kill the Drones and Elites. Go outside and to your right you will see a temple with a broken bridge leading to it. Grenade jump there and go to the room to your right. Activate your Flashlight and go to the left corner. Zoom in with your scope, and you will see the message.

Method 2

Continue until you reach the platform where the Hunters are dropped and walk to the side of the platform that is facing the temple with the broken bridge. Grenade jump, and you should be launched across and in through the balcony window on the other side. Then follow instructions from the first method above.
