Ugly Is Only Skin Deep

From Halopedia, the Halo wiki

Ugly Is Only Skin Deep

Ugly Is Only Skin Deep is an Achievement in Halo Wars that is worth 70 Gamerscore. It is obtained for beating Act 3 on any difficulty.[1] Act 3 consists of the missions Anders' Signal, The Flood, Shield World and Cleansing.


The name of the achievement is a play on a famous adage about beauty, and is a reference to the Flood, which are first encountered in this act. The phrase "Ugly is only skin deep" is a reversal and reference to the saying, "Beauty is only skin deep."
