  • Sergeant Johnson


Sarge, Grif, Simmons, and Church try on some new ODST armor for their Firefight match, when Church asks Sarge if Sergeant Johnson is going to be in their match. Sarge says it's a possibility since he's in the game. Church then says he's heard so many legends of the Sergeant: that he took on an entire Covenant Battalion by himself, he cannot be killed, and has laser eyes. However, Church is unsure if the last one is true. Grif is soon scared and Church makes some horrible analogies.

Church continues that Sergeant Johnson could be anywhere, at anyplace, and at anytime. They soon realize that Sergeant Johnson is right behind him. Sarge warns "Whatever you do, don't look directly into his eyes." Apparently, one of them look and Sarge says, "Uh-oh too late," and Sergent Johnson fires his laser eyes, proving the rumor to be true.


Fade in to the battlefield
Sarge: Alright, men, this is it. ODST. How's the new armor fit?
Grif: Good.
Simmons: Yeah, awesome.
Grif: Aw, hey look, turn on your visor.
Church: Uh, hey Sarge, you don't think Sergeant Johnson's gonna be part of our Scrimmage today, do you?
Sarge: He is in the game, so it's a possibility. Is that a problem?
Church: Wella- it's just there's so many legends about that guy, I mean, I once heard he took on an entire Covenant battalion by himself.
Cut to appropriate badass footage
Church: And rumor has it, he can't be killed.
Cut to footage of Johnson totally stuck with giant spikes, and still kicking ass
Church: And my friend's cousin's neighbour told me, he has laser eyes.
Cut to footage of Johnson killing an alien with his laser eyes
Church: I'm pretty sure that last one is fake though.
Grif: I'm scared.
Church: You should be. Sergeant Johnson is as tough as they come. They say he's as strong as an ox, and as agile as... a, smaller ox.
Sarge: What?
Church: He moves like a whisper, that you only say to the wind at midnight.
Simmons: Why would you, do that, that, doesn't make any sense.
Church: He's as cunning as a fox... taking a, pottery class at a, Ivy League university... that accepts foxes.
Grif: Wow, you're not really good at analogies, are you.
Church: The point is, he can be anywhere, any place, at any time. ... He's right behind me right now, isn't he.
Grif: Yep.
Church: Oh great.
Sergeant Johnson starts charging his laser eyes
Sarge: Whatever you do, don't look directly into his eyes. Uh oh, too late.


  • This marks the first and only time the characters appear in the Halo 3: ODST engine. Because the Halo 3: ODST engine does not feature a Forge mode, Rooster Teeth was forced to shoot the episode within the game's Firefight mode. This necessitated footage be shot while other players fought enemies to keep them away from the filming location, and likely discouraged future use of the engine from then on.
  • The characters wear different ODST Firefight Body types with their usual accent colors.
    • Church - Mickey (Ice)
    • Sarge - Buck (Red)
    • Simmons - Buck (Maroon)
    • Grif - Rookie (Orange)
