Halo 2 cut dialogue

From Halopedia, the Halo wiki

The following pieces of cut dialogue can be found in the game files for Halo 2. The full reasoning behind some dialogue's removal is unclear, however, with certain lines referring to entities such as the Flood's Juggernaut, it's likely lines were cut as content was removed, the dialogue was deemed redundant, or as dialogue was consolidated into other lines and areas of the game.

Trivia[edit]

  • Dialogue for the both the levels High Charity and Gravemind have the same prefix, "l07". This is also the case for levels Sacred Icon and Quarantine Zone with "l06", and Uprising and Great Journey with "l08". As these levels were originally intended to compose single levels,[7] this could be an indication that these lines were added to the game before the decision was made to split most of the levels in half.
