Halo: Reach - Getting inside the Noble Subway Station

Recommended Posts

Hey guys Waffle here to showcase another Remastering the Classics. This is the Noble Subway Station. The Noble Subway Station was done around the summer of '11. We went through many methods and failed attempts before we finally got to the final method shown here. The problem that was present was that in the "abyss" there was an elastic barrier preventing you from actually being able to go to the station, so we were stuck up there looking at it from afar. The perfect "so close yet so far" situation. Another problem was finding a spot where you can clip into without just falling. This problem was solved quite easily with the discovery of "ground pounding". Now we didnt need an elaborate ghost clip setup to be able to even enter the area. We tried everything we could to try and break that barrier when suddenly, we thought about the banshee easter egg. The banshee easter egg is a easter egg left by Bungie where if you press a certain combonation of buttons in a certain order, 4 banshees will spawn and the elastic barrier will also be deleted. So you must be thinking "wow that was easy to think of, why didnt you do it!?!?" 

 

Well it turns out, when you do this easter egg, the game, trying to prevent you from continuing through the mission, creates some obstacles. First and the most easiest to bypass was making the AA guns invincible. Easy solution however, just destroy them before you activate the egg. The next and most important problem, the door that leads to "swordbase" wouldn't open. So how were we gonna be able to set up a clip when we couldnt get any vehicles inside the swordbase anyways?...

 

That's why the discovery of groundpounding jump-started this challenge. Even though the door wouldn't open to swordbase, the swordbase was still loaded. So this is where the whole "ground pounding a groundpounder" method came to be, and we were able to finally solve the elastic barrier problem. So thankfully, the whole banshee easter egg effect of the barriers not being there still was in affect thank god, and we finally were able to get inside the abyss without any barriers blocking our way. 

 

Next came a pretty difficult triple head jump, but obviously if we have came this far, we're weren't gonna let some stupid thing like a fall timer get in our way, so we tripled jumped inside and bada bing bada boom. Challenge done.

 

 

I thought that remastering this video was especially important to me, because the original is lost to time, and we are able to show this to a brand new audiance that didnt see it the first time around. So please enjoy and dont let my commentary bore you. xD

 

This is the Noble Subway Station

 

 

(P.S we have soooooooo much planned the next few mouths that your head will spin wink.png  )

This is one of the reasons why I play campaign. Not to wonder about Chief cortana nerdy crap. But stuff like this. Nothing more fun that exploring the inner workings of a game.

Nice find. Bungie did say that there were easter eggs that were going to take years to find. Supposedly there are easter eggs still on Forge World too.

One time I was looking at the texture of a random rock on forge world and I thought I saw the face of a bungie employee, I have no idea what rock though. :(

I've seen similar pics in the rock walls where people would draw the outlines of faces, but they were pics of MC and the like. There's even one of the Arbiter in the clouds supposedly.
