Fun with Halo's Physics

Someone has too much time on their hands

You're gonna need Quicktime to view this.

FYI.. It's 23.2MB. Ouch. Worth it though.

Yeah....this one was too good to pass up. It went around the office most of the afternoon.

I know it's a big download, but it is certainly one of the best fan made game videos I've ever seen.

That was pretty cool, and very funny.

For us non-X-box owners, what weapon was he using to launch the vehicles? Look like some kind of grenade with two explosions, or two grenades...

The part in the beginning was showing how to set it up. You back the truck against that rock and make the gunner guy get out and then you plug him in the head. His weapon and his grenades will fall on the ground behind the truck. Then you hit the truck so it backs against the rock and position it just right. Then you toss a grenade under the truck and it'll blow up all the other grenades sending the warthog into outer space.

Thanks,

I wasn't quite sure what was happening, as I've only played the first few levels at a friend's house. Cool stuff

So - I'm trying to do this, but the guys I shoot don't have any grenades. I've tried on all different skill levels too. What's the deal? Did he do this on multiplayer or something? I'd like to know. I want to do this too. Is there a specific soldier guy who has grenades? ALso - how did he get more than one warthog there? From further on in the level? Did he like go back or what?

There are a total of 3 warthog's available on the level as I recall.

The one that gets dropped in to you and then 2 more further up the beach.

The soldiers have somewhat random inventories. So it's a bit of a crap shoot as to whether they have grenades or not, but I would imagine that he went back to the beach battle area and picked up a few extras.

I guess it's also possible some cheat codes could have been involved, but I haven't even looked to see what codes are known for Halo.

Fantastic. I laughed my ass off watching this. I can't even begin to estimate how much time this took to do. Hats off to that guy.

Great soundtrack too.
