Red vs Blue Radios are Easter Eggs hidden in Halo 4's Spartan Ops mode. Shooting these radios will cause them to play Red vs. Blue's opening theme. In addition, as a consequence of triggering the easter egg, dialogue from key moments of a chapter will include humorous dialogue from the series' cast. Finding one of these easter eggs will award the Roses vs Violets achievement.



Near the beginning of the level, when Fireteam Crimson comes to a bridge and must activate a power source to progress, look over the edge of the bridge's far side. The radio is on a rock near the foot of a lavafall.


At the chapter's opening, walk to the end of the corridor and go to the left. Follow the tunnel of vines and the radio is on the left wall between two vines.[1]

Shootout in ValhallaEdit

The radio is at the very top of a pine tree at the start of the mission.[2]

Rally PointEdit

The radio is on the right side of the waterfront tower near the top.[3]

Spartan ThorneEdit

At the beginning of the level, turn around and look for the radio on a ledge along a cliff.[4]

Search and DestroyEdit

The radio is hidden on top of a structure straight across from the platform on the side of the main building.[5]

Engine of DestructionEdit

When the mission begins, follow the platform around to the left to a small control room. The radio is underneath the computer console on the right.[6]

Majestic RescueEdit

The radio is in an underground tunnel near the base on the far right of the map.[7]

The HammerEdit

Once Crimson has assisted Poker Squad, move on to the next area. Use a jetpack to get on top of the floating platform on the right. Walk to the end and the radio is sitting just over the edge.[8]

Seize the PowerEdit

After Crimson has stormed the first gate with Fireteam Forest, stick to the right side. Eventually, there will be a crashed Pelican with the radio underneath it.[9]



  • Commander Palmer: "Commander Palmer to Fireteam Castle. You're on Spartans, Dalton's got targets for you."
  • Caboose: "Um, the regular radio guy isn't here right now. Sorry."

While Crimson is defending the artifact.

  • Commander Palmer: "Fireteam Castle, this is Commander Palmer. I need an ETA on clear skies."
  • Caboose: "Seriously, the regular radio guy said he'd be right back. He's in the bathroom."


Crimson activates the first computer.

  • Caboose: "What does this button do?"
  • Church: "Caboose, don't touch anything!"
  • Caboose: "But I'm great at buttons. Oh, look at that explosion!"

Recording ends.

Crimson activates the second.

  • Church: "Great. You broke it."
  • Caboose: "No. The fire broke it - ah, see? Great, now I'm on fire too. Awesome."

Recording ends. Crimson activates the third.

  • Grif: "Hey, Simmons? What do you think this thing does?"
  • Simmons: "How should I know? It's a 40 foot, seamless alien monolith with one massive holographic button. It could be anything from a giant microwave oven to a weapon with enough power to-"
  • Caboose: [screaming] "I'm on fire!"
  • Simmons: "Hey, is that Caboose?"
  • Caboose: [screaming]
  • Grif: "Probably. He's on fire."
  • Caboose: [screaming] "It's like the armor! It does nothing!"[10]

Shootout in ValhalaEdit

Pelicans fly in with Mantises.

  • Simmons: "Hold tight, ground forces. We are inbound with reinforcements. Don't wanna say exactly what, but you'll like 'em!"
  • Grif: "It's giant robots."
  • Simmons: "What?! Grif! You ruined the surprise! You have no flair for the dramatic."
  • Grif: "They're in battle, idiot! How dramatic do you want it to get?"

Pelicans drop Mantises.[11]

Rally PointEdit

When Crimson reaches the waterfront tower.

  • Vic: "Hello? Hello? Commander Palmer, hello? Do you read me?"


  • Commander Palmer: "What are you even doing?"


  • Vic: "Oh, come on, dude! I thought you saved my number last night. You were really killin' at the karaoke. If you know what I'm saying, dude."


  • Commander Palmer: "Miller? Status?"
  • Miller: "Working on it, Commander."


  • Vic: "Yeesh! Easy there, Commander Buzzkill. I'm going to 80's night tomorrow, so hey. Give me a buzz after you save the universe and all that. Hasta luego. Luego bye bye."[12]

Spartan ThorneEdit

When the equipment drop comes.

  • Sarge: "I heard you boys wanted a lift, but all I've got are these guns. I suppose you could assemble some sort of primitive gun-like vehicle out of the parts... But who knows what the insurance rate would be on that bad boy."

Several gravity hammers marked "Sports equipment" are dropped.

  • Sarge: "Dammit, Grif! You dropped your cargo! Now how are we supposed to play Grifball?"
  • Grif: "I think the bigger question here might be why was a military vehicle sent into battle with sports equipment?"[13]

Search and DestroyEdit

After Crimson has reached the nukes.

  • Sarge: (mocking voice) "This is Corporal Switchback to Infinity!"
  • Commander Palmer: "Go ahead, Switchback."
  • Sarge: "Hey Infinity, is your slipspace drive running? Because you'd better go catch it!"
  • Commander Palmer: "Crimson, you're the closest responder. Fall out and help Switchback."
  • Grif: "Babba booey! Babba booey!"[14]

Engine of DestructionEdit

When Crimson disables the warhead in the server room.

  • Simmons: "This is Private Simmons! There was a big firefight down here, and the engine's all shot up! We need a maintenance crew ASAP!"
  • Miller: "Keep it together, marine. Spartans are on their way."
  • Simmons: (sarcastically) "Oh great, more people with guns! I'm sure THAT will fix the engine!"[15]

Majestic RescueEdit

When the equipment drop comes.

  • Miller: "I'm having Dalton send some more supplies your way, Crimson."
  • Caboose: "Six cases of elbow grease and headlight fluid inbound now."[16]

The HammerEdit

After Crimson activates a Hawk squad IFF tag.

  • Roland: "Alright, I've got a recording from a Hawk IFF tag, playing it now."
  • Elite: (speaking Sangheili)
  • Church: "Yeah, I have absolutely no idea what you just said."
  • Elite:' (speaking Sangheili)
  • Church: "Dude, listen to me! I do not speak alien!"

Plasma fire.

  • Church: "Oh, this is such BS!"

Energy sword.

  • Church: "Ugh... blarg!"

Recording ends.[17]

Seize the PowerEdit

When Crimson is about to board the Lich.

  • Miller: "Crimson, I'm not saying it's even sane. But get on that Lich at any cost."
  • Agent Georgia: "Cool, jetpacks. Those'll get us on that ship or my name isn't Agent Georgia."[18]
