Infected War Chieftain Glitch

I don't usually post here, but I was just messing around on The Covenant on Easy (I usually play on Legendary I was just having some fun here) and something unexpected happened. Before you start flaming this thread, why don't you read the following: So after I deactivated the third tower, I decided to keep some Flood alive so I didn't kill the carrier forms. Instead, I killed all of my marines and the Elites. I didn't get in the Scorpion tank since I didn't have time. A lot of infection forms were after me. So I ran to the location where you encounter the first prowler and I killed some Brutes and the War Chieftain. I don't know what happened next, since I wasn't paying attention to the War Chieftain, but when I saw the Chieftain, my first thought was that the War Chieftain was half-infected, but he was attacking the Brutes. He was still wielding the Fuel Rod, which should have been absorbed by the Flood and his body didn't change (he should have transformed into a Infected Brute Minor)except there were some Flood spores on his back. I approached him after I had helped him kill the Brutes and his melee was like when you take down a War Chieftain's shield, they do this melee with their weapon instead of their fist. If you didn't read through that, basically, the War Chieftain was completely infected, but his body didn't change, except for a few Flood spores growing on his back. He was still wielding his fuel rod gun and he could still hijack vehicles. He seemed faster though. Any ideas on how this happened? I will upload the video in a couple of hours. I need to record this first. [Edited on 03.12.2010 6:11 PM PST]

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Karl2177 That's really interesting, and I bet it has to do with the Arbiter relocating. The game couldn't handle it or something. Nice find![/quote]You can see the explanation here: [url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PEuvElmBIyQ[/url] [Edited on 03.29.2010 9:45 PM PDT]

Are you saying your body was 'possessed' by a Flood AI? [Edited on 02.08.2010 4:34 PM PST]

  • This was on Co-op btw. I was the only one playing and the Arbiter was still at the tower when it happened. [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] RKOSNAKE I tried to do it some minutes ago, the marines and elites kept killing them.[/quote] Did you try playing through The Covenant without destroying the Anti-air Wraiths? That will prevent the Elites from spawning. The second Arbiter will spawn with the Energy sword but he will be removed from the level. Also, try killing the marines with the Rocket Launcher. That's what I did. :-P Most importantly, do not destroy the Carrier Forms until the marines and the Elites are dead. [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] DarkAero Trooper wow that was hilarious and confusing i usually wake up early and since i`ve got nothin else to do i`ll have a little test i am a pro at keeping the flood alive after all mwahaha[/quote] I once kept a army of Flood alive. Preferably on Co-op on The Covenant at Revelation, just get the infection forms to infect the dead Brutes on the third bridge and then headshot all living combat forms. Then activate the light bridge. Finally, just get to the first bridge without destroying any Flood enemies and you'll have about 30-40 combat forms. [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] MR DROZ That's about as cool as the one were Johnson gets infected. Now that one is a keeper![/quote] Yes, it's badass. Thanks for the comment.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Mutoid Log [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] DarkAero Trooper there is a vid about this on youtube made my generalkidd i`ll link it soon it happened because a loading sequence happened during the chieftain being infected [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rP6UNeUG6Ws]glitch vid[/url][/quote]Wait, crap. Has anyone been able to replicate this, preferably without blind? The OP's video, I mean.[/quote]I did my research this morning and I found that there is one loading point nearby. However, the loading point is at 1:27 in generalkidd's video, and I don't think I transgressed that point. Also, it is interesting to note that the War Chieftain was already dead. The half infected Brutes in his video were still alive. If this is the same glitch, then this must mean the dead enemies retain their AI, and their AI is not dead, but they are allied with the Flood. To contribute to this glitch, I will upload the footage before and after the glitch to make sure. [Edited on 02.05.2010 10:13 AM PST]

It could be the same glitch since there was a loading point nearby. I had the Blind skull turned on so I didn't know if I crossed it or not. Apparently, I did. Still, it's badass to see a infected War Chieftain. [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Mutoid Log The game normally doesn't have War Chieftains and flood in the same area, so there's no proper form linked to an infected WC. Most likely it's a quick infection prototype that was left in. Instead of instantly becoming totally floody, freshly infected hosts would be almost the same as they used to be. The whole takeover would happen over time. Bungie then scrapped the idea for some reason, probably recognition issues, but one model was forgotten in.[/quote] Interesting idea. I never thought of that. [Edited on 02.05.2010 10:06 AM PST]
