Orbital Insertion Pod glitch

From Halopedia, the Halo wiki

For the Halo 3 glitch involving Orbital Insertion Pods, see Drop pod glitch.

The Orbital Insertion Pod glitch is a Halo 2 Campaign glitch that occurs when players stand under incoming Covenant Orbital Insertion Pods. The glitch forces players into the pods.


In the level Uprising, kill all the Brutes at the beginning of the level. When the Elites meet up with you, look carefully where the friendly pods land and memorize the locations. Then, revert to the last checkpoint, push your ally off the ledge, and stand directly where a pod will drop.

If executed correctly, you will end up inside the pod. However, when the door flies open, you will be launched out. To stay inside, kill the Sangheili inside the pod. The door will not open, but you will be trapped inside.
