M on top of Coagulation

The pattern interpreted as a letter M.

On the Halo 2 map, Coagulation, there is a light patch containing what appears to be a large yellow letter M. Though it isn't likely a reference to the fast food franchise McDonald's, the egg is often connected to a pre-existing rumor that there was a McDonald's logo hidden in the level. Whether or not this is intended to represent the letter M or not is unclear. The existence of the Megg in Halo: Combat Evolved gives reason to believe that Bungie could want to add another letter M Easter egg in Halo 2, but it is just as likely that the M symbol pattern is coincidental apophenia based on players primed with the McDonald's rumor.


  1. Change your character model to an Elite (this is needed because they get out of the Spectre from the front) and make a gametype where you have some Spectres.
  2. Go to the Blue Base in Coagulation.
  3. Use the Spectre's boost to climb up the right part of the cliff near the base. There is a ridge on the wall as you continue left that forces you down, so stay clear of it by moving slightly down from it.
  4. By now, you should be completely sideways, and approaching a ridge on the cliff. Keep boosting on it, and you'll eventually get over it. It should take a few tries, but you should stay patient.
  5. When you get to the very top of the cliff, turn around in your Spectre, keep its left wing on the rim you originally approached, move the nose of the craft slightly over the rim, and search for a small notch in the cliff. Then, get out in a way so that you stay on the ledge.
  6. Walk along the cliff towards Red Base but make sure to not walk on the edge. There are notches in it that you can fall into, and never get out of.
  7. Once at the back end of Red Base's cliffs, look around for a light-colored patch in the rock.
