The Storm Load glitch
Uh... How do you back in? Does the driver back in such that the driver is outside of the door (towards the Scarab), and the passenger is inside of the door? I mean, I haven't tried this yet, so I've no idea even which door, though I assumed it was the lakebed entrance and edited the article accordingly.

Load glitch is a bad name for this. It should be called level derendering. You can also see this in halo 1, absolutely everywhere. The number of instances is uncountable, but here are a few.
- When ledging, you can go blind, this is when the level completely derenders.
- When you fall out of the map, part of it derenders usually.
- When your ledging, parts of the level can be visibly derendered.
- When you launch extremely high, the level may begin to derender, this is visible on some campaign launches on The Silent Cartographer.
This isn't really a glitch or cheat, its just a mechanic of halo that can be messed with. Halo derenders parts of the level so your computer/xbox doesn't overload with physics calculations and bitmaps showing in the background when they aren't visible. Matortheeternal 23:34, 31 May 2009 (UTC)
- The parts of the level, however, are not "derendered" -- they're unloaded from RAM. To the game (that is, the gameplay-related functions like the physics and collision engines), they literally cease to exist. "Load glitch" is indeed an inadequate name for the glitch, but "Level derendering" is misleading. File:DavidJCobb_Emblem.svg|16px]] DavidJCobb 00:40, 1 July 2009 (UTC)
