D0223 T0053 Y2009The Art of Warthog

Playing the great game of Halo affords a gamer the chance to act out so many different roles of their choosing. The archetypes are the same that one may find on an actual battlefield. Sniper. Rifleman. Pistoleer. Heavy Gunner. Guard. And let us not forget the Pilots. Once a player embraces their favorite function on the battlefield, they can hone their craft until it is elevated to the level of art.

One such artist, a Gunslinger who we know as Fezzer, has compiled some of the finer moments of his performances in the various threatres of combat that comprise the Halo 3 Experience via Xbox Live. It has been said that a cat always lands on its feet. The same can be said for the Warthog, provided it is being helmed by a faithful member of our Roadkill Squadron.

Enjoy. Please refrain from flash photography, and hold your applause until the end of the show.

    Thanks for the post, Deej! Hope everyone enjoys it. I tried to take a different approach to the typical montage theme.

    @Zeuz: Every so often is right! You would not believe how many months of playing it took to get those clips. There were other crazy clips too, but these fit well with the theme.

    What a great video! I love the music you selected to accompany it, just perfect. I now expect you to land the warthog every time I’m gunning for you, just saying, ... ;)

    Fezz, that was so beautiful, it made me want to cry. Landings like that are right up there next to cross-the-map sticks for the most glorious moments in Halo.

    Very nice video! my favorite clip is at 1:50 where the ‘hog bats away the energy drainer. that was really lucky, or very well timed. either way, it looked great!

    Ahh, the ever unapreciated, yet always awsome driver. Not always the highest Kill count, but dang you feel good helping others get heres.

    I also laughed at the fact that, in a few of those clips, it cut to the next scene RIGHT before a fatal rocket impact after the stunt.

    @Sharp

    I have no idea what you’re talking about >.>

    @Mondo

    That was a strange occurance. I had to watch that from multiple angles to try and figure out what happened. Still not sure what the deal was. Some kind of strange Halo physics phenomenom I guess. It looks great though. Press X to deflect Power Drainer…lol.

    @Max

    You know it!

    Excellent montage, excellent music, fantastic Warthog control! I haven’t enjoyed a montage that much in many months. Thanks, Fezzer!

    too bad i have an almost perfect flip would have done nicely except for maybe that no one was sploding my hog at the time (http://www.bungie.net/Online/Halo3UserContentDetails.aspx?h3fileid=24053214)
    here it is if you want to take a look

    o wait if that was all Fezzer then never mind i thought he got some from others but if it was all him then that is far more impressive

    100% natural.

    Anyone can do it. Just takes a love for the hog and some patience.

    I liked the part where you rolled and landed on top of the ramp part by the satellite dish. That was friggin sweet!

    Glad ya’ll liked it. I loved making it. Or rather: I loved playing the game with you guys to get the clips and love the fact that Oboe made it. :)

    It’s… so… beautiful…

    There really is nothing more thrilling for a driver than openly mocking a plasma stick or oh-so-slightly missplaced rocket. Landing a trick like that is nothing but heartbreak for the attacker. ^^
