They're Random, Baby!

Halo 3: ODST Cutscene Library

The ODST Cutscene Library went up quite quickly; it was online within 3 weeks of the game's release, opening its doors on October 11, 2009. Thanks once again to Cody Miller for his help in recording.

While the flashbacks can be completed in any order (after the first one), we've presented them in the order they appear in-game. When there are variations (because of the difficulty level, or other in-game factors), we've provided all possibilities.

HD versions are 1280x720, SD versions are 640x360.

As of May, 2013, these have been upgraded to surround sound (with two exceptions - a version of the final scene in Data Hive that requires all audio logs to be found, and the easter egg at the very end; these are both still in stereo). Thanks, Cody!

You can view a streaming version of the cutscene by clicking on a thumbnail.
