The Section 3 Terminal Archives are a series of hidden videos aimed at bringing in new recruits to the Section 3 fold and testing the skills of established members. Players download an initial payload of data and through successful solving of each puzzle unlock the address to a new video which includes hints and clues about reaching the next puzzle in the chain.


Created for the Section 3 community and hosted on TheGamerRefinery YouTube channel the Section 3 Terminal Archives were conceived as an in-Universe response to demand from the players of the Halo 4 ARG.
