The light side of the moon

The new Halo 3 maps may have only been out in the wild for a mere matter of hours but already we’re getting reports of people finding more of the elaborate easter eggs the Halo series has become famous for.

Remember the face hidden in the moon on Containment? Initially thought to be Frankie, it was later revealed to be Bungie’s Environment Artist, Chris Carney.

Well, he’s back… and still hanging around the lunar cheese, this time on Standoff.

A bigger version can be found here.

In a recent interview with Eurogamer, Frankie mentioned there’s at least two eggs hidden on Standoff alone. Anyone out there noticed the other one?


Ok, is this guy (found on one of the sattelite dishes) the second egg?

Certainly could be, I guess… but the thing causing the most head scratching at the moment is the all important question – who the hell is that??

Sure he’s similar to the floaty Jason Jones we met on Halo, but looks like a totally different guy to me. Marcus Lehto? David Dunn?

It’s time to whack those thinking caps on guys, let’s find out who this mysterious sat man really is.


Thanks to the detective work of Louis Wu of H.B.O, along with a little help from Frankie, we now know that the figure perched on the satellite is in fact, Bungie 3D artist, Travis Brady.

Case closed.

Looks like the sound guy, Jay Weinland

Two things
1.Has anyone noticed that the plasma rifle isn’t available in forge on Standoff???
2.Does Standoff’s secret item really exist, or is it just the soccer ball??

Comment by RabidMongoose

1)weird. but oh well, it won’t change. bungie has made that abundantly clear to me.
2)it’s the soccer ball.

Comment by D-thunda

Dang, what a let down!
ah well, the soccer ball is still sweet

Comment by RabidMongoose

Comment by D-thunda

soccerball is probably the most boring thing ever. I got bored with it within two minutes.

I have a tutorial on how to get out to that, and anywhere else out of maps.


there ya go, follow my tutorial and meet the fellow up close. it’s hard to do, but you’ll get it eventually.

Comment by D-thunda

The soccer ball is probably the dumbest thing in the game…

Comment by Jordonferri

that guy looks a hell of a lot like John Locke from Lost.

Comment by V M31573R NL
