Your whole team’s dead. The clock is ticking and the pressure is on. It’s up to you to secure the win, and maybe you’re even hobbling along on minimal life. Did you make it?


Surely you all have memorable victories or comeback stories. Maybe they were unlikely. Maybe you made it by the skin of your teeth. I’ve certainly pulled off amazing feats rampaging across Halo matches demolishing the opposition. I’ve carried teammates through the toughest boss battles in Borderlands and hopped my way successfully across platforms not meant to be crossed after multiple failed attempts.

What’s your story? Set us up.

Halo 2 Team Slayer on Turf.

My team had 2 people quit so it's me and some other random guy against a full team of 4. Luckily my teammate is using his mic so we can communicate. We've managed to maintain a 10 point lead for most of the match but our lead has been getting smaller as the enemy gets more coordinated.

Me and my teammate decide that we won't be able to keep our point advantage for much longer so we decide to hide behind the crate in the warehouse section of the map, and agree to go radio silent since proximity chat is on. We spent the last 5 minutes of the match hiding behind some crates while the enemy team looks for us in confusion. The best part was that due to proximity chat we can hear the other team's frustration growing as they have no idea where we are. It was both comical and exhilaratingly intense, as we could hear them pass right by us several times.

At the very last second we both jump out and kill two guys right as the game ends.
