Campaign Kill Count Exceeds World Population

As of sometime late yesterday, the overall enemy kill count for Halo 3’s campaign officially surpassed that of the global population. That, is a lot of kills.

Looking at the stats from Bungie.net we can see that the current kill count for campaign is somewhere around the 6,725,020,446 mark – and rising all the time. While the global population (as noted by the U.S. Census Bureau) currently rests at 6,705,176,594 – incidentally, this is also rising, just nowhere near as fast.

So that’s a lot of dead bad guys, but there’s way more to Halo 3 than that. It would seem us Halo gamers are pretty damn good at killing the good guys too! With the number of friendly kills, though not quite as high, still an impressive 1,172,797,636.

A quick look at my own service record shows I’ve barely made a dent, contributing a paltry 2,151 to the overall amount of kills amassed so far… but then, here at 7th Columnist we like to think we’re more lovers than fighters, or something. Though it has to be said if I’m lining up a snipe and a careless marine just happens to step in front of me, I’m still taking that shot. That’s what 14.5x114mm Armor-Piercing Fin-Stabilized Discarding-Sabot bullets are for… right? Sure they are. I wonder what my contribution to friendly fire is…?

So how much of this epic slaughter is your doing? Are you the type who maniacally hunts down every last enemy on screen, genuinely trying to save the world, or do you blitz through Halo 3’s levels from start to finish as if performing a speedrun? Let us know below.

Thanks goes to Dubble and Omega for keeping an eye on campaign stats.

So, for every friendly fire kill, there is almost six regular kills. I haven’t played Halo 3 in a while, and I’ve changed my xbox live name since then, so my kills and deaths aren’t recorded.

Sad face :(

these are stats purely for when your in the game playing single player or co-op campaign? is there a stat for how many people have been killed in online matchmaking anywhere…. ? i dont want to guess but maybe add a zero onto the 6 billion?

These are stats solely for Campaign play. Single player or otherwise.

For matchmaking, damn… I’d add at least a zero.
