Moa statue (Halo 3: ODST)
From Halopedia, the Halo wiki
Moa statues are a collectible available in the campaign of Halo 3: ODST. The statues were added to ODST's campaign in the Series 9 December update for Halo: The Master Chief Collection, and is not present in the original Xbox 360 edition of the game.
Several moa statues can be found in each level on any difficulty and take the form of a small golden Moa. Upon being discovered, the statues can be destroyed, with the weekly challenge Eye Spy requiring the destruction of three such Moa for completion. Three levels are chosen to spawn Moa within each week (observable on the challenge itself), with each level getting three statues chosen, meaning they are not all consistently placed all the time. As such, this page lists all potential statue locations. Statues marked as (Broken) spawn every week and don't count towards the challenge, even when the challenge selects the level the statues are placed on.
There are a grand total of 29 Moa Statues found in ODST.
