Catch Skull

I know everyone is getting tired of these questions. But the catch skull does not even spawn. I play on normal and up. I do not destroy the purple wraith. I start from the start of the level and do not die I have no idea what is wrong. I have tried destroying the AA wraith and not destroying it niether work. Please I really need help, I have tried everything, it's the final skull I need.
Thanks alot!

Comment:(Jan 21 2008) no what everyone is not getting is that the skull does not appear at all...the second i get in the area its not there

Don't destroy the wraith by the door the one that the phantom drops, maybe kill your partners, mine killed the wraith god knows how many times, and.. Go to theatre and check out where the skull is and when it dissapears see what you are doing.

Unfortunatly this is the most probalamatic skull in the game. Personally, I got it immediatly, but my friend had your problem. You can try a couple of things. One is to just keep restarting over and over it takes time, but eventually it'll pop up as long as you don't kill the wraith on the platform. If you playing on co-op that might also be the problem, soemtimes it doesn't show if your on co-op. I don't know for sure if theres any truth to it, but I've also heard that you might need to destroy all the other ghosts and anti-air tanks, but not the wraith, in the area.

When you go for the skull, do it quickly, because the purple wraith will shoot it's cannon at you and the explosion can blow the skull away.

Do it quick before the purple wraith shoots it.

Do it fast before the wraith blows it away.

Sometimes there is a glitch stopping you to get the skull the glitch stops you getting the skull unless you complete the campaign on normal

From what I've heard, if you've completed the campaign, the skull disappears.

There is no "best" armor. It's a matter of opinion. Personally I prefer Hayabusa armor.(Ninja armor you get for getting all of the skulls)

The skull itself has an accidental bug, although bungie are probably the best game makers, they still encounter graphic problems, specially with halo 3 as it's older than it looks. There are two main reasons:
-The skull does not spawn because you did not kill every enemy in the base before entering the cliffside where the AA wraith is, or, as you try to jump for it, the opponent wraith blocking the door with hit the side of the solo, the explosion causing it to go flying, but still can be fount on the ground.

Now from what I have heard you need to complete the campaign(on normal or harder)and then come back.Try looking through a scoped gun at the silo,if not there try destroying the AA wraith.not sure this will work
