Know your meme: Craig the Brute refers to a meme that began to spread after a Halo Infinite demo during an Xbox game showcase in July 2020. After taking a screenshot of the generic Brute, a Facebook user shared the image saying, “We call this guy craig idc what you say.” Craig then rose to fame with countless internet users posting even more countless memes featuring the creature and poking fun at the less than flattering graphics.
Microsoft and 343 Industries have taken the Craig the Brute phenomenon in stride, promising to put Craig Easter Eggs in Halo Infinite, and the previews just found one. YouTuber Mint Blitz posted a video on their YouTube channel showing how to find the first of Craig’s many Easter Eggs in Halo Infinite.

If you’d rather not ruin your Easter egg hunt, stop reading now and skip the video below.
Blitz notes that the Easter egg is not easy to find. It’s located at the top of a gigantic tower in the fourth campaign mission, and you’ll need enhanced grappling hook fire with a 40% cooldown reduction to climb to the top of the building.
Once you get to the top, you’ll find Craig is a rock star in the Halo universe. Plated on some machines, a concert poster reads “Craig Zeta Halo Tour 2560”, then lists various dates and locations.
Nearby on the floor is a “Greatest Hits” album cover with the original image of the meme. If you flip it to the back, you list all of Craig’s greatest hits, including memorable tracks like “I’m the Craig in Your Heart”, “Popped in the Chin by My Friend”, “I Can ‘ t Grow a Beard “,” I’m Famous “and, of course,” The Day You Became a Meme “.
While the Multiplayer Open Beta launched earlier this week, the Halo Infinite single player campaign won’t be released until December 8. However, 343 Industries have already sent preview copies to various media outlets, and Mint Blitz mentioned that they were lucky enough to get one.
