->'''Willy''': Spriggs! Come back here and die you son of a bitch!

->'''Triple M''': Quote, I'll burn you all to get that son of a bitch?, unquote.
->'''Willy''': He was asking for it.
->'''Triple M''': But you missed him and HIT EVERYTHING ELSE!

A peace treaty between the humans and the Covenant Elites has ended the war. The Fifth Intergalactic Infantry stationed on Zambi 7 have relatively little to do but avoid Specialist Willy's attempts to kill Specialist Spriggs. However they don't realize that there is a reason that they have been stationed on this planet. The army is getting tired of all the chaos they cause and has shipped them out to this planet to get them out of their hair. As well, a group of Elites crashed on the planet and don't seem to realize the war is over.

Spriggs is a Machinima series set in the ''{{Franchise/Halo}}'' universe. It was created by [[http://www.spriggshalo3.com/home.php Running Gun Studios]]. The first season ran 14 episodes and it is unknown whether it will be continued at this time.

Episodes are available to watch on their youtube channel [[http://www.youtube.com/user/RunningGunStudio]]
