Trivia[edit]

  • Unlike other Halo: Reach trailers, the armor color of Noble Six seen in the trailer is brown, his emblem is a pink "Brute" with an unknown background. Therefore, it can concluded that the cutscenes used in the trailer are from halo.bungie.org's Halo: Reach Cutscene Library.
  • The music used in the trailer is not part of the Halo: Reach Original Soundtrack, making it apparent that Bungie didn't create the trailer.
  • The trailer is used as the "Video Preview" for the game on Xbox LIVE.
