Prepare yourself for my best trick ever.
Back in 2005 PrinceOfTheSword managed to get to the bottom of the Index Chamber on Quarantine Zone. Although this already seemed epic enough, he issued a challenge to launch back out of the pit (=the prestige). Many have tried, few came close but all of them failed. Until now.
Getting to the bottom of the pit used to be a pain, but only a few days ago, xlax007 thought of a way to make the Index Chamber easily accessible by BAW. That was the key to make this possible.
The launch itself is very demotivating because you will (nearly) always hit ledges. There are no checkpoints at the bottom, so you need to make a new pile for each and every launch. After I figured out a reliable launching technique, I got one launch that showed me in black and white that it was possible. From this point, it was only a matter of time. About 4 hours later, I finally made it.

Here it is,a little over a year later it was completed, the tutorial has finally been released. Getting to the Black Spartan was thought to only be possible in Theater and using mods. This trick is insane, taking up to 100 min minutes just to set it up sounds ridiculous. There's loadzone manipulation, clipping, out of maps, and launching all combined to make this trick remotely possible.
The reason why this biped is here is because it is a placeholder for the masterchief cutscene easter egg. It has all the same X,Y,and Z coordinates as the location of the cutscene.
We hope you guys enjoy it.
