    Favorite halo moment was trying to kill a friend while he was being cheap and trying to get his ten kill with out dying achievement in a king on the hill match by sittin on a turret across the map and killing people.

  • My best memory of playing Halo has to be when Bungie was still doing humpday challenges. Bungie was facing against EGM and I was lucky enough to help the EGM team practice before the big humpday challenge. I got to meet some very cool people.Good Times!

    Two doubles kills to end a game on MLG Guardian. Second double kill involved a 2 for 1 no-scope. Still my favorite memory.

  • Most memorable moment playing Halo? had to be my first time playing! on my Powerbook on the train, played the whole game using the touch pad and one button, it was a amazing accomplishment for me… lol

    My most memorable Halo moment was My most memorable Halo moment was back in Halo 2. I would play that for hours every night with my friends for at least half a year. One of the times when we were playing, we were bored and playing CTF on Waterworks. My friend decided to drive over to the other team’s base in a Warthog and convinced them that he had defected from our team. He then told them to jump in the other two seats in the warthog, saying that he would drive them to our base to capture the flag and protect them the entire way. When they hopped in, he drove the Warthog to the cliff in the middle of the map, jumped out and drove them off of the edge. It was considered a suicide so they were down 2 men for 10 seconds, or whatever the penalty is, which gave us time to kill the other two team members, grab the flag, and score a point. Hearing them scream curses at him as they fell off the edge then suddenly get cut off was the funniest Halo moment of my life.

    best halo moment for me was when i first started playing (about 2 years after it was released) someone was trash talking about how he was going to kill the noob and i ended up with the highest kill count on either team. i am not great but that day i was.

  • DAMN YOU CROSS BORDER SHIPPING COSTS!
    If I were too enter, my most memorable Halo moment would have to be not playing Halo. Ever. Pretty memorable.

  • I had this beautiful moment with halo 3. It was a few days after the game was released as me and friends had pre-ordered it. But we were on the very last level, 4 of us online, and came to the warthog race. Everyone except me died, and I was the one to pull our group through the very end of the Master Chief’s adventure. It is hard to describe in words, but the best I can come up with is: EPIC

  • My very first time playing Halo was during the Halo 3 beta. In my first match I was running around just trying not to get killed while I tried out some weapons and grenades. I did not know that the spike grenade stick to things. I was on small bridge and below me I saw someone driving a mongoose. I threw the spike grenade at them and somehow it was a perfect throw and stick to their back. The mongoose went underneath me and out of sight. I turned around, ran to the other side of the bridge and got to see the person drive full speed back into view. The spike grenade went off and killed the driver and the mongoose flipped over. It was pretty amazing.

    My best Halo moment wasn’t online. It (I should say ‘they’) were offline.

    I was ecstatic when I won a limited edition Halo 3 poster from Microsoft in a giveaway. It was 1 of only 500 ever made. Tearing open the package to find the poster was almost orgasmic.

    Besides that, the best (though I could also say saddest) moment in Halo was when only half the ship came across to Earth and MC was left floating in space. I was also a bit saddened when Sergeant Forge had to sacrifice himself to deploy the nuke. But the Spartan trio vs Elites fight that preceded it had to be one of the most awesome sequences ever in Halo.

    Easily the best Halo moment for me was when I checked my Bungie.net inbox one night to find a Halo 3 Friends and Family beta code.

  • OREUS

    My most memorable moment is when a bunch of my friends got together on Halo 2 and we all had pink armor on and we would enter a free for all style game. there would only be one other person (not in my group of friends) in the game and we would kill only him. I’m pretty sure we pissed a lot of people off by doing that. Good times on H2! also when we played cat and mouse on Coagulation.

  • This is more of an awesome yet painful story. I went to the Halo 2 midnight launch and the excitement in the crowd was electric. Got my copy went home and played multiplayer all night with my brother in law. For whatever reason, I didn’t take work off the next day so it made for the absolute most excrusiating long day of work in my life. But it was worth it.

  • Andrew

    Since I haven’t played any Halo game yet, my most memorable moment would come when I win this game.

  • My favorite Halo moment would be playing through multiplayer with my husband @ckenny81. Also Firefight with good friends is just the best.

  • Brett

    My fondest memory is when Halo first came out. I popped that baby in my 80 lb xbox and it was pure bliss.

  • mataman906

    My best Halo moment was back in the halo 1 system link days. I used to hook up my dance dance revolution mat and try to pistol whip anyone I could see (which surprisingly worked a few times)

  • My favorite times playing halo, were when my friends and I started making some videos of ourselves doing different things in the game. Then we found Red vs Blue and our dreams of having the coolest halo videos were shattered. 🙁

  • Stuck

    My most memorable Halo moment would have to be on Halo:CE. My friends and I were playing a 4v4 team slayer match during a thunder storm. the game was a real heated match with scores nearing a tie, needless to say we were all into the game. It finally came down to the last kill, my friend curt stuck one of the opposing team members and right as the grenade went off a transformer blew up in my friends back yard. needless to say we were all in disbelief about what had just occurred. then of course the other team said it was a undecided match, which we all know was BS because the Danny was stuck before we lost power. End of story, literally.

    My most memorable Halo moment was the last part of the original game. The ship was going to explode and I was trying to get out of it when the Halo music started to play. I did not make it out in time but I tried again and did.

  • eathan

    my favorite moment was when my friend was out of ammo (retard) and was running to get some more and got his leg caught in a mountain somehow (glitch). he was stuck there the whole rest of the time. he wouldnt die either i unloaded like 7 clips into him. after a few grenades he finally died, his leg still caught in the mountain. oh, his guy was flippin out and twitching after i killed him lol.

  • Davide

    Getting into the Halo 3 beta, and realizing that Crackdown was actually really fun.

  • Josh L

    I got into Halo really late. I didnt even own a Xbox until the Xbox 360 was coming out. But when I got it & Halo I was hooked.

    Halo 3 though really got me into the Halo series. I remember playing that with my brother & his friends on Xbox live.

    I am also a organizer for a Lan party in Albany NY called Exile Computer Gaming. Every event we have hosted we have had Halo 3 running.

    I would love to win Halo ODST and run that at our next event.

    Thanks
