Halo Reach has finally made its way to the Xbox One and PC with a bunch of tweaks and adjustments to make it feel right at home in the 2019 landscape. Of course, the new release also means there’s a bunch of new achievements for players to unlock. One of these is ‘I’m Sorry, Dave’ which requires players to ‘Find the Hidden Binary Signature.’ Here’s how to find this hidden binary signature in Halo Reach.
Halo Reach Hidden Binary Signature Location
This signature isn’t something that you can go and pick up in one of Halo Reach’s levels. Instead, it’s literally right before your eyes. All you need to do is pick up a non-scoped weapon and zoom-in by pressing R3.
In the lower-left corner of the screen you’ll see a bunch of hidden binary that reads: “01000100011000010111011001100101.”
This is an ASCII eight-bit binary code that reads “Dave.” As long as you keep the non-scoped weapon zoomed-in so that this code appears on the screen for about a second, the ‘I’m Sorry, Dave’ achievement will unlock.
What’s the Story Behind the Hidden Binary Signature?
This is a reference to Bungie’s interface designer Dave Candland. While Bungie may no longer be the team behind the series, Microsoft Game Studios and 343 Studios clearly wanted to leave it in there for fans to uncover, and to pay tribute to the team that started it all.
The ‘I’m Sorry, Dave’ achievement is worth 5 Gamerscore and is just one of a number of Easter Egg achievements that can be found in Halo Reach.
