Banshee meets a trip mine and trip mine wins


Fresh from the Halo 3 beta's "that's freakin' awesome video clip vault" is a video we like to call Banshee Meets Trip Mine. While standing on a base in Valhalla a red team member decides to pick up a trip mine, spots an incoming Banshee, and tosses the mine into the man cannon. And as you can see in the video, the Banshee loses the fight. How amazingly great it is. Tune in next time for a brand new Halo 3 beta video straight from the "that's freakin' awesome video clip vault". Goodbye everyone and good night!

1. That was really sweet. This is why saved films are going to be really awesome...

No one ever knows when these moments will occur.

2. Haha, a friend of mine had the same thing happen to him, but that video looked sort of staged.

3. I went off the mancannon and jacked a banshee midair. It was way cooler than this.

6. there goes jack thompson...no wonder he's pissed about Halo3

7. You sure? Me and my buddies were playing BTB last night and had multiple matches on Valhalla, no one saw or fought a banshee.

8. Lol that was good. it only appears on big team battle training *to Number 4

Posted at 8:13AM on May 24th 2007 by Arron

9. Yeah im shure, it only appears on btb slayer.

and to number 6, its a lot less manuverable. it is now unable to shoot down beyond a certain angle, however it now has the fuel rod cannon

10. This is not impressive at all. No one was playing. All they did was try to see if they could blow up a banshee this way. Its not like this was in the middle of a heated battle and the guy got the best of the banshee this way. For all we know this was like 50th attempt at this. The banshee even flew into it cause it was possible going to miss the mine.


Not impressed.

11. holy shit! that ought to be an achievement!

Posted at 9:23AM on May 24th 2007 by h0mi

12. When I throw a tripmine into the mancannon, it just sticks to it and kills whoever tries to use it.

Posted at 9:55AM on May 24th 2007 by Aero

13. Gibber its just cool that it happened and they got it on tape. I dont know why you are so pissed about this. All the crackdown tapes are staged its not like they are trying to make it look realistic. There just playing with the physics.

Anyway the Man Cannon is starting to look pretty awesome with its propelling abilities. I wonder if someone has tried to Man Cannon a bubble shield or weapons. It would be cool if you could just transport weapons on the hill and let your friends use them when they need them.

14. That would be sweet #14, "Someone transport me a Missile Pod to take out this Hog!"

15. and in typical halo retardedness, then continues to smack around his teammates.

i've launched all sorts of stuff out of the man cannon, if the plasma cores were more powerful it would make a much sweeter projectile. and grenades usually blow up halfway through the air.

Posted at 2:05PM on May 24th 2007 by Grant

16. I wonder if you shoot a rocket at the man cannon would it swerve and go foward or something... That'll be kinda cool.

Posted at 6:40PM on May 24th 2007 by Justin

17. LMAO! That is freaking sweet. (insert Peter Griffin laugh here)

The Trip Mine has to be my favorite new item. There's nothing like tagging a passing Warthog full of guys and then watching them all try to hop out. Easiest way to a double kill :)

Posted at 9:32PM on May 24th 2007 by agelgamer

18. wait... there are banshees in the beta???
