Hey, i was playing online with my friend on PC, just us, and he told me he had to get some food. so i was just jumping around. then, a grenade killed me. i thought he was back, but i found him at the same spot. i called him on the phone, he said he was picking up food from sonic. so i stood by his guy (killer001). i turned around for a sec ,and was a plasma grenade on him. then there was 1 on ME. it killed me, and, when i flew up into the air, i say a red spartan sliding on the ground. backwards. perfectly. when i respawned, i went to look for who ever joined my game. i looked on the score board real quick, and the only names were mine and killer001. then i got creeped out. then i saw it running at me, and when it LOOKED at me, and I died. after a while, i did not see it. then killer001 came back.i told him what happened. he did not believe me. then it came. he said he could not see it. it was rushing at me. it hit me, and my PC messed up. in white letters on a black screen came this= ERROR: UNABLE TO GATHER DATA::::: DUMPING........:::::::::: ERROR
Then i shut my PC of. whenb i called my friend, he said i turned red and died(im blue) so what was that???????????

This happened to me on Halo 3 Blackout once on forge. I am assuming that Bungie preys on small online parties once in a while and *injects* the ghost into the game. After the ghost haves it's fun, all players will disconnect and it will display an error....however, that's just what I think. I had a party of 5 people in forge and the ghost of blackout came and owned us. (We all had power weapons lol)

Well it's called Ghost of Blackout because this stuff happened more often on the map of Blackout so people gave it the name of Ghost of Blackout

#1. Blackout is a Halo 3 map, and no rellevance to Halo 2.

#2. There is no such thing as the "ghost", or an injectable character with crazy skills.

These supposed "ghosts" cannot exist within the Halo Vista system. For starters, there is no way for a 3rd person to enter a match that has no scripts or defined mods, then proceed to begin doing crazy mod style stuff. Even if their were mods on the server, if they were scripts, they would only sync for host. It just can't happen period. furthermore, a 3rd person cannot enter into a match with you and hide their status. There is no net code that allows you to do this, and doing so would require you to re-write the engines exe file. And for those who think Bungie is doing it..... why would they? They wouldn't even have access to any of the PC converted code, seeing as they never even were involved in the porting. That was done by PI and Hired Gun, and that converted code went into oblivion when the groups disbanded.

Injecting new code across a multiplayer connection is impossible. Noone can enter a match with hacks or mods that require scripts or additional map data that does not exist within the host's map file, and perform any kind of moddified behavior. Anything mod related has to be done on the hosts map file or server. Also, even if the server operators moddified their maps, you would have to have an exact copy of that map to play on the server. Servers check for map correctness. One single map with a tag that doesnt match the servers, get refused at joining.

SO to recap, noone is out to get any of you, and there is no ghost. This is just another propaganda story to get people spooked or to make other people look cool saying it happened to them. And for those who would disagree, then how about you post up some server logs for us to look at, along side some video of it?

Well, I wasn't recording but I can swear that I can prove it. I'm pretty sure a few people uploaded videos/clips about these "ghosts" on Youtube.

The ghost of Lockout is real. I've witnessed it.

I have also witnessed weird things like being able to play as a dead body, flopping around as you "walk" over somewhere, but not having the ability to shoot, and your shields never recharge...

Once I got in a vehicle as a dead person, i became frozen above the seat and able to do all driving actions, such as turning, moving, and shooting. Then after I got out, I was no longer a flopping dead person, but a floating, gliding person with no animations.

But of course Lockout has no vehicles, so....

I've seen something similar to a ghost in coagulation, but since the server was american and there were about 12 people around, I'm not sure if it really was a ghost.
Basically, it was an elite on our team in a ghost (the vehicle) near our base. When I aimed at him my reticule would turn red despite him being friendly, and I shot at him a couple of times but nothing happened, I think he ran over some of my team at some point. Might have just been a glitch with reticule and me not hitting him maybe have just been my aussie ping.

Yeah except for the fact that the guy who took that video is an idiot. Any number of networking issues could have caused that. I just find it funny how there is a grav lift pointing at the wall, just a mere inch from where the plasma grenade magically comes from. It is not that difficult to set things up, so that after you throw a grenade, it bounces around the map out of view, then magically appears to be coming from nowhere. Hell, you can't even verify the vid isn't taken on a modded console. FOr the love of god people, anyone who knows anything about the Halo franchise and how the engine and tag system works....knows that ghosts cannot exist, and noone can enter or inject players into a match. Can we please lock this pointless thread now!

They just do not get it Reaper. Its like they believe in magic or think that myths are completely true when usually they only hold a little truth.


You've got people in here saying its real because of something they saw in Halo CE or Halo 3 or Youtube or some AI map.

In a way its funny, you know, they just want to believe it so bad that it must be real, regardless of the facts.

I see your point...it could be just lag or some bug... but ehh. Sometimes it's fun to get owned bad by some "ghost" :P

Hmm, I can never get a kill with a battle rifle in halo 2, unless they have like no shields, or I manage to get them with a grenade. I blame the ghost of... all of the halo 2 maps.

It has happen to me, once in Zanzibar and another time in Bloodgulch. In Zanzibar I was alone running around and suddenly I died by the hands of something called the guardian, and as u guys know the map has no AI. And in Bloodgulch something called the guardian killed all of the players in the game. :/

thats a map glitch. if there are open edges or open faces then there is a good chance that you will get killed by guardians. Its a thing built in game. if there is glitch causing you to die then it will display killed by guardians message. Just like when you stand in teleporter when someone else is going through. you will get telefraged.
