The times, they have a-changed, as the ol' saying freaking almost goes (nuts to it, it's Monday morning, that's close enough).

In their original forms, the early Halos were bereft of achievements. After all, today's fancy-ass gamerscore business wasn't introduced until 2005. They were tacked on in later years, sure, but how nostalgia-tacular would Halo: The Master Chief Collection be? Would it remove them again?

Of course it wouldn't. That'd be a one-way ticket to Crazy Town on the what-the-shit-are-you-doing express. In reality, the Xbox One exclusive collection is now the biggest achievement hog in Xbox history. And it includes this little slice of weirdery.

One of them sports the enigmatic description ‘inscrutable, mysterious.' Naturally, this means slightly less than eff all, but it's worth checking out Kotaku's why, what and when guide to this mystery unlock. Turns out, it's a clever little homage to the series' past.

If you're the nerdliest of nerdly Halo enthusiasts, and talk of the .fortune easter egg means anything to you, you'd best hit the link.
