TriviaEdit

  • In the room right below Shephard's dormitory (only accessed by noclipping) can be found an Easter egg, consisting in initials and a date ("DMM 1999"). "DMM" is the signature of David M. Mertz; "1999" is the release date for Opposing Force. Mertz did it again for Halo PC in 2003 (Halo ported for the PC by Gearbox), in the multiplayer map Timberland, where he signed "DMM 2003" behind a group of trees.
