The Ghost of Foundry

Assembling a masterpiece in Forge can be a time consuming and lonely experience. One requiring absolute concentration. It’s easy to get wrapped up in your forging, and in the vast empty warehouse of Foundry, even easier to go a little ‘space crazy’.

Last thing you need then, as unlucky17 found out, is a visit from the Ghost of Foundry.

Unlike that friendly little Casper fella, the Ghost of Foundry is a far more malevolent beast, tossing grenades at the unsuspecting and just generally creeping folk out. Check out the video below to see the spook in action. Scary stuff indeed.

A glitch? A hoax? Who knows…? Has anyone else out there had the misfortune of meeting this explosive toting scamp?

*UPDATE*

Explained. Here’s the science bit, concentrate!

Apparently the ghost grenade glitch is a fairly common one in Forge. Simply throwing a grenade and immediately shifting into a monitor (before your Spartan has had the chance to finish his throw), prevents the grenade from actually going off. Turn back into a Spartan or simply wait long enough and the grenade will appear, detonate and freak out the unsuspecting.

Try it for yourself. While not quite the Ghost of Lockout style scandal of Halo 2, it’s a fun glitch all the same.

I acually saw this the day the new maps came out. Me and my wifey were making a spartan soccer field and she got fragged. Thought it was me, so i showed here the video. Almost exact same spot, just mirrored from the other side.

i found out hoow the glitch works,best with spike grenade

so i was on forge with my friend and i had just read this article,i thought of doing it on valhalla,so i did what it said,and i could hear the grenade spinning through the air,and it was right in front of a grav-lift,so 3 minutes roll by and the sound was still there,so mi friend was stupid enough to get in the the way of where it was supposed to go with his mongoose,and i never turned into a spartan,and the spike grenade stuck him right on the crotch
