AI Super Jump

From Halopedia, the Halo wiki

The AI Super Jump is a glitch in Halo 3: ODST and in Halo: Reach where an in-game AI runs into an object and is launched high into the air.


The glitch behaves differently in both Halo 3: ODST and Halo: Reach. In ODST, the glitch affects all in-game AIs whereas in Reach, it affects Grunts only.


Halo 3: ODST[edit]

  1. To trigger the glitch in ODST, simply attract an AI and get it to run towards an object (preferably a cargo box). Position yourself so that the object is between you and the AI.
  2. As soon as the AI touches the object, shoot it. If you did it right, the AI should launch into the air. It shouldn't take any damage once it hits the ground again.
Note: This will not work 100% of the time, there is only a chance that it will work.
Note: It may be that the AI has to be jumping in order for the glitch to work, but this is undetermined as of yet.

Halo: Reach[edit]

In Reach, the glitch is usually triggered when a Grunt fires their weapon or is shot while their model overlaps with a cargo box. Doing so will send them shooting into the sky, only to fall back down again. Fall damage may not apply, but collision damage does, so the Grunt may survive the landing, but not survive if they collide into a wall. If the shot that sent them into the air was a killing shot, the flight will delay the Grunt's death until they hit the ground.

The glitch can occur in any level, but most commonly does on the Firefight map Courtyard, due to the plethora of cargo boxes that are present.
