* "You're on your own, Noble. [[spoiler: Carter]] out." '''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2oNbixyGZ-Y&feature=fvst (BOOM!)]]'''(BOOM!)]]''' [[spoiler: Made sadder when after Carter tells the two surviving Spartans he's going to ram the Scarab, Emile just states unemotionally "Solid copy. Hit 'em hard, boss." It's almost DullSurprise, but then you realize Emile's been hardened so much by his team's deaths he's ''unable'' to show emotion.]]

*** Even more heart wrenching is that Six never even realizes just how important their sacrifice was and how much they actually did make a difference

*** [[spoiler:And then, directly after Jorge sacrifices himself to destroy the ship and tosses you off on your gravity propelled trip to terra, you look to the right to see that his sacrifice is rendered pointless as the [[OhCrap ENTIRE DAMN COVENANT FLEET pops out of slipspace]], filled to the brim with ships exactly like the one that was about to 'cleanse the taint' all by its lonesome. It was enough to propel this Troper into a 2 hour funk, curled up in a corner and crying. [[FreemansMind Because what do you do when something that big wants to kill you?]] It was made worse by my building hope that, maybe, we can defy canon! Maybe we can save Reach and survive and save them all!... Well, Troper, [[VideoGame/BeyondGoodandEvil you were wrong. Completely and utterly wrong.]] [[HeroicBSOD There's nothing you can do. There's nothing anyone can do.]]]]
*** [[FromBadToWorse Even worse,]] right after the new [[spoiler:Covenant fleet appears, Six]] lands, wounded on re-entry. With nothing but a pistol, they make it up a hill and spot a large city, mostly smoldering, with a huge Covie ship floating above, while some of the most heart-wrenching music in the entire series plays [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aBsHTZYtb3A (Up to 1:28 on this vid.)]] YMMV on this, but this moment nearly caused a Heroic BSOD for me.

* Understanding of the ''Halo'' universe will have some Fridge Tearjerker. Dr. Halsey's hostility towards the [=SPARTANs=]'s was engendered by suspicion, since they weren't "her" [=SPARTANs=]. Her attitude change is tearjerking stuff, especially her final farewell to Noble Six.

* Pay close attention to the bodies around you in Lone Wolf. The Spartan corpses' armor resembles the rest of Noble Team, just different colors. It's like they are all there waiting for you to join them in death. Can also double as a Crowning Moment of Heartwarming, if you look at it as the developers giving Six some familiar company before he dies, or that they are still with him until the very end.

*** For what it's worth... That Field Marshal is probably the same one you fight at the end of ''The Pillar of Autumn.'' It won't bring her back, but... killing him gives you, if not some small amount of Schadenfreude, then at least satisfaction.
