Halo 3: Worst Betrayal Ever

Submitted by: fancylad 9 years ago in Tech

No possible explanation for this kill, you"re walked through 5 different scenarios, and still no clue how he dies.

The game lagged. He shot the guy in the head, but it lagged so it looked like he did it later. Thats what I think anyway xD

First off, probably lag, but it still makes an awesome video.

Second, to everyone saying "Get a life, go get a girl" or whatever, my boyfriend is a total Halo nerd (as am I) and we still have time to go hiking and fun stuff like that, along with playing many video games and looking at funny websites. So guess what? Just because this person made an awesome video about Halo does not mean he lives in his mother`s basement and plays video games all day.

NEWS FLASH!
It`s possible to have a life and play video games.

the sniper shot a bullet and the grenade exploded, thus making the bullet go the other way?

Firstly, I`d like to tell Nytewulf to go screw himself. He wasn`t complaining. Secondly, did you ever consider that it might be a glitch? After all, he may have installed an autoaimer, making sure he gets headshots every time. It could have malfuntioned and blasted you instead. Either way, that`s an awesome clip.

"Eddy, it was shown...

There is a feature in Halo 3 that lets you record your matches, smartass. And you can jump to other palyer`s perspectives too.

I think it was lag. Nothing more. Or maybe the hitboxes are really drated up in Halo 3 in online play.

The true answer to this lies in cheating...
I used to play sof2...
And when I`d shoot somebody in the head, the gun would glitch and shoot 5 metres above where I was aiming.
The guy you were fighting was using a hack.
It designed to ricochet the bullet into the path where no one would normally be... therefore decreasing its chances of detection...

but thats just my theory.

#2. The fact that this was posted almost makes me not want to come to this site anymore. Honestly what a friggin waste of time. If the kid dying cost him like a million dollars in a Halo contest somewhere I could see it but seriously who gives a F XXX . Damn.

This is obvious. He lagged for a minute, and when he regained connection the guy`s headshot seemed to defy logic, and the guy`s grenade went backwards because he threw it wrong perhaps, or off of the other guy who lagged. I dunno.

Seems more plausible than glitch.

Chuck Norris ran in front of the bullet in an attempt to get to China in time for bacon, coincidentally bitchslapping a bullet on the way there.

If you look close enough... wait... nope. He`s too fast.

"It`s called a glitch. Remember, the xbox /is/ still a microsoft product."

You /are/ an idiot. Don`t bash MS just because it`s the cool thing to do. If it is a glitch, it`s the software`s fault - the CD. The Xbox360 is relatively reliable, since they started to get rid of the ring problem (they`re putting in new CPU`s now, which supposedly helps.)

My guess would be that the bullet ricocheted from the nade, though I doubt it. Probablt just a halo3 glitch - in the commentary, they said that during beta/alpha testing they had all sorts of strange behavior going on (ie someone shooting a gun and killing someone that they weren`t aiming at). Maybe this is a trace that is left of that poor coding.

Generally, I`m not a huge fan of Halo3. I was there at 12AM, to get it upon launch, and I was really excited. And while single player satisfied me proper, the multiplayer is fairly mediocre. After beating the capmpaign, I got bored ot it - COD4 is better in multiplay.

Except.. He`s not complaining about ANYTHING.

Maybe your in a different universe, but, if you fire a bullet out of a gun, it doesn`t go straight back behind you.

Doesn`t that seem in the least bit strange to you?

If not, I hope I never meet you in real life within the vacinity of a gun.

dammit this is just another 12 year old trying to get that special armor evry1 is talking about online on that damn game, what happened i would guess is just a lag spike, the first guy actually killed him with the rifle while the kid was going in front of him, but the connection was bad so the kid is in the air when the host realizes what should have happened so the bullet was redirected, into his head.

sucks but it`s nothing amazing

i love how people always FIRST assume that a computer simulation is using complicated physics or some other amazing stuff and they try to be all scientific about the situation. Being a person who has programed and designed parts of video games it`s just funny that they don`t figure an error in the elements of the simulation in. The language of computer code is very similar to the language of english. It is SOOO flexible, then whenever an errorS are made, that instead of causing a null result they will instead cause another result such as this.

but nobody understands that and they immediately try to explain the situation in an uninformed way.

Guess that just means they dumb

there was a invisible robot infront of you. OR maybe the other person shot and hit the snipers bullet. because ive done that before you shoot and another person shoots a spartan laser or rocket at you and then it just blows up and goes the other way. OR. how about your enemys teammate shot you from some other location on the map. cod4 is more fun i think.

Hilarious how some people use Halo as the basis of whether a game is good or not. The only way Halo is the example of a good game is if you have low standards- or if you`re just another console junkie who won`t play a game with bad graphics.

A: Everyone saying that this needs to get a life, He`s better than you, he made a video of great quality, better ANY of you could make. Plus your complaining about him not having a life? your a site for when your bored, sure you watch vids, but should that just be it? no commenting if you had a "life".

B: Those saying it was boring, Maybe it was for those who don`t play or have never played Halo 3,So if it was boring get over don`t bitch to fancy that you don`t like, YOU find something better. the crazy poo that goes on in the online matches, it will blow your mind if you do stuff like this. This is maybe the top ten of weird poo i`ve seen.

C: I already know I`m ranting myself so don`t bother pointing it out, But I`m gonna just say it was the lag, might not allowed the bullet hole from the bounce on the wall to show or might not allowed the nade to explode.

Long story short, X-box is filled with crap. Literally. I opened one up once, and a tidal wave of sh*t hit me in the shoes. Where as PS3 uses kittens. Seriously. Open it up and a horde of kittens runs out. They`re cute and cuddly. So, you know. If you have a choice between sh*t or kittens...You know the right decision...

Ok, It COULDN`T have rebounded off the red guy`s `nade, firstly, it was too far away, and secondly, if you shoot a grenade in halo 3, it detonates, care to try it...?

It`s just a matter of lag, the sniping guy was lagging, he shot when the other blue was in front of him, but because of high latency, it didn`t send the action until after the guy had gone back and jumped, and because Microsoft made the game relatively fair, the bullet counted as a hit on the guy. Kapow, Betrayal.

Halo3 allows you to save every game you play so you can watch a replay of it, stop, slow down, detach your camera from a player and freely fly around while the replay is stopped or in full motion.

@xboxman
Xbox Live not laggy? On which (ring)world are you playing? If you happen to join a bad host or a good one quits and the next in line is a bad one you are most likely dropped from a green to a yellow connection status if not red.

@video
He was infront of the barrel when his friend pulled the trigger, to bad they had a lag spike right that millisecond, so he jumped back and got shot by the bullet in an upward angle directly from the rifle, because the trajectory is to steep to have bounced of the grenade already lower then the muzzle. And if you watch the part where he checks the walls for bullet holes you can see that the muzzle flash and headshot occur simultaneously because the host is "bending time and space" to make that betrayal register to th

It`s possible but I would figure grenades and bullets/rockets have ghost collision with one other. If they didn`t that would just be stupid and cause frame drops on occasion from people shooting grenades of accident with rapid fire guns.

Also, at the lag thing. I have never seen lag cause a round to do that. The round passed over the dudes shoulder. It would have still played the animation going straight. So long story short, lag would = bullet continue going straight not sideways and still result in TK.

Grenade ricochet sounds most viable actually now that I think about it.
