sidewinder3 The First Sidewinder Collection
Team 7HR33 racks up another first - they put everything but the Scorpions on top of Sidewinder, and they even lined 'em up all nice and pretty.

deimos.topofhalo Where the Twist Flops
Deimos™ was the first to photodocument the location at which the Warthog ceases to move on the level Halo. Any farther, and it all locks up, and you slide back down to the bottom...

deimos.2dtrees They're Not All There
Deimos™ gets a good look at those 2D trees up on the hillside. When people aren't supposed to be around, why waste polygons on full trees?

deimos.2betinwalls Going Where No Banshee Should Go
Deimos™ managed to flip a Banshee (accidentally) inside a hallway on Two Betrayals, and end up INSIDE a wall inset. There ain't no way out... because you're never supposed to be in.

Roman and a friend were having a demolition derby on Blood Gulch, and both managed to hit a Scorpion at the same time - one with a tank, the other with a jeep. It's not very stable like that, though...

Another shot of the Warthog down below the Halo light bridge - this is just a gorgeous shot, no two ways about it. Another Team 7HR33 creation.

More of a two-shot than a one-shot... but pretty dang cool. Team 7HR33 gets below (WAY below) the light bridge on Halo. See it up there?
