Halo Wars 2 Skulls

Halo Wars 2 Skulls list going over all the non-scoring and scoring skulls that are available to be earned while playing the campaign. Skulls have a long history in Halo changing the game up in fun or maybe hardcore ways. In Halo Wars 2 this tradition continues with a number of returning and new skulls. I've included an image of the skulls and a list of what skulls are present along with how they alter the game below.
