8 Ways To Grab The OS Scarab Gun - 04-01-2011 , 10:54 PM


Actually there are at least 9 ways but I forgot about one when I put these clips together. I thought it would be nice to put one vid together to document all the ways to get that gun on Outskirts:

Here's a great one from RandomCTG; he does a frag rocket launch, then switches weapons so he can pick up the gun, then he switches back to the RL and breaks his fall-time:

Love that last one. Full of grumpiness.
The second-to-last one looked pretty old school.

I remember when I wanted to get the Gun in SP with a Rocket and a grenade from down the water. When I grabbed it, I always killed myself with it before I landed because it kept firing... Good old noob times :)

Which method is the easiest? I have never managed to grab the OS one.

Also, I found out that the second scarab gun on Metropolis really isn't that hard to grab either. You just have to know where to grenade jump to... I will try that next chance I get, also!

The 2p coop yank is probably the easiest, but the single player launch to the top of the building is also pretty easy.

Yup, the yank is the easiest but like boof said, in SP the RL launch is not that hard if you have a checkpoint. The CP is the most important part of this.

This is probably the best tutorial for the SP launch, by Terminator:

Edit: When I first got that gun I went uptop in coop and had one player jump off so I could plot where the gun appears, then I could do it in SP. It was excruciating to get that gun at one time because you had no CP but then Terminator figured out how to get CP's going and then it became fairly easy to get it.

I could never get that thing in single player until I saw terminators vid. I always found were to launch from by getting off the wall at the exact same spot every time (based on the sort of green lines on the ledge) and then counting my steps (some trial and error was involved at first to find the spot in the first place)

I used to have a sweet checkpoint right after the grab were I would play and just turn off my xbox instead of saving and quitting but unfortunatly I gave my xbox away for a christmas present cause I had a 360, by the time I realized I would lose all my saves (the skulls, the metro and os scarab guns, the armory pressure launch ect...) I was already comitted to giving it away to a 5 year old who doesn't even have halo and wouldn't know how to play it if he ever got the game.

I am currently trying to get all my skulls back but I only have one controller so I have to play through the whole game up to the level with the skull I want every single time, I am sooooooooo sick of armory and cairo station as you can probably imagine

I know I'm ranting but as there is only 3 or 4 days left to post on this forum youre probably going to get a lot of long rants from me until the end

also to relate back to the original topic I think the last method is the coolest, I would never ever try it myself but it is the coolest

Lol, this is the OS thread.

Yeah, I've already done X's partner bounce. I hadn't picked the Ghost raising one because it wasn't about the Scarab gun, even though it could have been. I tried to find one where you raised the Pelican and got off on the bridge but couldn't. That's what I focussed on showing, landing on the bridge.

The others are in my Metropolis thread except for the Banshee launch.

I thought so but because HIH was closing I didn't want to sit through a bunch of vids to find the right one.
