The ONI Candidate Assessment Program V5.02A is a viral campaign for Halo 3: ODST, based off of the We Are ODST short [1]. It contains video footage of Gunnery Sergeant Edward Buck interviewing the future members of his team, Corporal Taylor Miles, Lance Corporal Kojo Agu, and Private First Class Michael Crespo.

Description

The interviews are live-action, and the characters are portrayed by different actors than their in-game counterparts. The interviews are set in a soundproof room, and a Neural Marker is used to monitor the applicant's thoughts during the course of the interview. In the beginning, the applicant is asked to think about a certain subject, such as a bird, river or a flower, the association of which will be the "baseline image" of the interview.

The program consists of a panel with video screens on the left and right sides, a search bar with multiple key words related to the interview, and various monitors of the applicant's status. The video of the interview itself is shown on the left side of the panel, while the screen on the right side shows the current thoughts of the applicant. Below the screens, interviews of the three Marines can be selected. A part of each interview is "Classified", requiring a hidden code in order to be unlocked. These clips open up in a new window, and can be viewed from different angles by click-and-dragging the mouse.

Interviews

    Hidden Codes

    There are four hidden codes located throughout the interviews, unlocking a short clip, previously only viewable for personnel with a Class Four clearance.

    • Dutch: Found in the live action video We Are ODST during the drop scene - 12-485-TA.
    • Romeo: Found on Buck's display during Dutch's interview - 15-926-PI.
    • Mickey: Found on Buck's display during Romeo's interview - 47-074-SN.
    • Wallpaper: To receive five screenshots from the We Are ODST short - 06-078-TI.

    Trivia

    • The part of Romeo's interview where he remembers an assassination mission, is likely filmed in the same location as the part with K. Stark's funeral in the We Are ODST short, which is inside a cooling tower of a nuclear power plant in Hungary. Several other filming locations appear to be the same as well.[2]
    • In Dutch's interview, the Prophet of Regret's Assault Carrier is erroneously referred to as "Cruiser".
    • In 01:38:49, a brief clip of Halo 3: ODST's intro cinematic, where the ODSTs drop into New Mombasa, can be seen, as a memory of Dutch's. Chronologically, this would be impossible, as the particular drop hasn't happened yet.
