** [[ActionSurvivor Las]][[BadassNormal ky]]'s distraction shouldn't be discounted, either. This is a kid who had one foot out the door on a potential medical discharge for a severe allergic reaction to the chemicals used in cryosleep, something he has to deal with his entire career. When the Chief needs a distraction, [[IndyPloy he comes up with a plan on the spot]] while holding [[spoiler: Silva's tags]], then psyches himself up by yelling "Axios!" and ''willingly running into the line of fire to buy the Chief some time. Tough kid.

* Several of the dialogue characters get in "Firefight" also count. Sergeant Stacker, the easiest character to unlock, has some real gems.
-->*Kills an enemy with a headshot* "Closed casket for ''you.''"
-->*Kills an Elite Zealot or other high ranking Covenant soldier* "Man, all those pay grade increases for nothing...*
* The "If They Came to Hear Me Beg" achievement is automatically going to be this. A reference to the above line from ''Halo 2'', it requires the player to survive an otherwise lethal fall by landing on top of an Elite ''and killing them with their knife using the game's new melee kill mechanic.'' One video on Rooster Teeth's ''Fails of the Weak'' series (originally intended to showcase people doing stupid or awesome things in ''Reach'' but later expanded to the entire ''Halo'' series and then any game) features a Spartan having a Banshee shot out from under them and surviving the resulting free fall by landing on an Elite who just ''happened'' to be running past and killing them. The best part? This was during an "Invasion" multiplayer match, and that Elite was another player.

** This squad's sergeant is Peter Stacker, who commanded the Marines who helped the Master Chief attack the Silent Cartographer in the first game and escaped Halo ''without any help from anyone else,'' simply showing back up as ''In Amber Clad'''s chief NCO during the Battle of Cairo station. Before ''that'', he also escaped Reach.

* The anniversary addition gives us a beautiful cinematic of a group of soldiers shot down in the city, and are approached by a Covenant ground team. Cue these seemingly-normal soldiers giving them an utter thrashing, taking no losses beyond the initial crash... Well, except for one of the soldier's helmets.

* Cortana gets one of her own at the very end. As the Gravemind slithers aboard High Charity, flood forms filling the halls to the brim, he begins mono lounging to Cortana, coming to a close when he basically tells her he will torture her for information in a very intimidating and scary way. And Cortana isn't impressed in the least.
---> "I will ask... And you will answer!"
---> (Cue Cortana appearing in the middle of the Floodmatter and tenticals, looking determined and not at all afraid.
---> (Sarcastically, but utterly calm) "Allright... Shoot."

** This troper thought the role Catherine-B320 had in ''Long Night of Solace'' is way, way underrated. For the [=SPARTANs=] to go from the surface to [[spoiler: orbit, blow some shit up]] and get back down in just a few hours must be one hell of military maneuver. It goes to show that being a SPARTAN is also about ''using the brain'' alongside the muscles.

* The beginning of ''Tip of the Spear''. You are probably embarking on one of the ''largest'' UNSC offensives in the games! AND IT IS AWESOME, especially when a pair of ships come in after you destroy an anti-air turret and start shooting down at the larger battle below you.

AND IT IS AWESOME, especially curt, stoic NOBLE leader is ''so'' darn cool and collected even when a pair of ships come in after you destroy an anti-air turret Reach is tearing apart all around him and start shooting down at the larger battle below you.
NOBLE members not being particularly nice to each other. Case in point...
-->''After [[spoiler:Jorge's HeroricSacrifice]]''
-->'''Noble Six''': [[spoiler: "Sorry I came alone."]]
-->'''Carter-A529''': "Make him proud, son." *Walks off calmly*
