In the Halo 3 level Floodgate, shortly after you can get the Flamethrower, there will be a Marine in the corner talking to himself about his squad's infection by the Flood, and how he just "did them a favor".[1]

After this, he says something about how he should do himself a favor too, and points his gun at his temple, seemingly about to kill himself, although he alternates between this and putting his gun down and shaking. Eventually the Marine will stand up in a combat ready stance, but will not accept other weapons. You can make the Marine stand by throwing a grenade near him.


  • If you go forward and leave the room for a little bit and come back, you will find him either dead or not even there. A pistol will lay on the ground. If you pick it up, you will find that it is missing one bullet. The Marine probably shot himself, although it is not possible for you to hear a gunshot.
  • The Suicidal Marine is a reference to the Halo: Combat Evolved's AWOL Marine.[2]
  • Interestingly, the Marine will sometimes not be armed with any weapon at all, raising his hand to his head as if he had a gun, even though he has no weapon. This is probably the result of a bug in the game.
  • If you look closely, the dead Marines lying around the room show no signs of Flood infection. It may be possible the Marine just lost it, and subsequently murdered his comrades in his crazed fear. On the other hand, it is also possible that he destroyed the visible signs of Flood infection. Another possibility is that the infection may just "disappear". It happens to bodies that aren't completely infected; after awhile, the infection just disappears off the body.
  • If you hold the camera in this room in theater mode, he will start to get up after a short wait, then simply vanish.
  • The Suicidal Marine has unusually low health, and dies after only a couple of bullets if you shoot him.


  1. Halo 3's Floodgate: "I... I didn't have a choice... (pause) The L.T... the Sergeant... they were all infected! (pause) I could see it crawling... sliming around beneath their skin!! (sobs) (pause) A-and then they got up... they s-started to talk! Oh, God! Their voices!! Oh, God! No, make them stop! (a pause, his speech turns maniacal) I did them a favor... y-yeah that's it; I helped them! (sobs) (pause, as his tone becomes quieter) Maybe... maybe I need to do myself... a fav... (breaks out into sobs halfway through the word 'favor')"
  2. Halo: Combat Evolved's 343 Guilty Spark: "Stay back! You're not turning me into one of those things!"
