"Siege of Madrigal" song
Play the "Assault On The Control Room" mission. When you start crossing the ice bridge (the last bridge in the mission) located in the same canyon as the final pyramid structure housing the control room, quickly snipe or pistol the Elites while ignoring all other enemies. Once the Elites are down, quickly hop in a banshee. Note: If the Elites remain alive, they will take off in the Banshee. Once you have the Banshee, clear out some of the enemies, then begin flying towards the control room entrance. There is a Forerunner structure extending straight up out of the top of the control room entrance. The structure is bound to the cliff walls by two half-ring-like structures. Fly up to the first of the two ring-like structures and carefully land your stolen Banshee on top. Hop out and walk to the edge of the structure on the right side (facing the cliff-wall). Remain still for a few seconds. If done correctly, a song titled "Siege of Madrigal" will begin to play. Note: This does not work on the "Two Betrayals" mission.
- Play "The Pillar of Autumn" mission until you receive the Magnum from Captain Keyes. When you walk out of the room in which you receive the Magnum, there will be a bulletin on the wall with things such as "Fist of the Unicorn" and "Have you seen my goose?".
