Machinima: Tactical Noobs
Honestly if I was teaching a class on machinima, I would present yours to the students and tell them, if you want to make a good machinima, take everything this guy did and do the opposite of what he did.Tactical Noobs is a machinima made using Halo 3 by a guy who calls himself Matt Sonic. It is a series of comical vignettes. And it's bad. Like, infamously bad. You'll just have to see for yourself.

This machinima provides examples of the following tropes:
- Axe Crazy - The Crazy Burger King Guy.
- Bring Out Your Gay Dead
- Disproportionate Retribution - A customer orders a Big Mac sandwich at Burger King, so the man at the drive-through window tells them that Burger King doesn't sell those—and then he throws plasma grenades at them.
- Driven to Suicide - The Fag.
- Ho Yay - The first skit is of Halo 3 players playing a custom gametype called "Capture the Fag."
- Jittercam - Probably not on purpose.
- Kill It with Fire
- Mood Whiplash
- "No! Ben, no! ... He's dead..." [Ben Astley music starts playing and a Burger King logo appears out of nowhere]
- One-Episode Wonder - Matt Sonic got enough negative critisism that he never premiered episode 2.
- So Bad, It's Good (YMMV)
- Word Salad Title - There's nothing "tactical" about any of this. And it's not the characters who are the noobs.
