Halo 3 Player Gives Eulogy to Game in Final Capture the Flag Match

During the final moments of Halo 3 on Xbox 360 servers, a nostalgic gamer gives a touching speech about their love of the online multiplayer.

Over the years since Halo 3 was released in 2007, players have made many memories playing online matches on Xbox 360. Unfortunately, the opportunity to make more unforgettable moments has come to a close, as the servers for the game have gone offline on Xbox 360. Recently, some fans have been paying their respects to Halo 3 in heartfelt ways.

In a post on Reddit, a user known as JayDFW shared a video from a recent Capture the Flag match in Halo 3. However, this was no ordinary game, as it was one of the last ones before the servers on Xbox 360 were shut down. In the video clip, the Reddit user captured the final few moments of the match. Surrounded by many of their fellow Spartans, JayDFW watched as his teammate Xxminiman15xX-A15 unexpectedly decided to take a moment to appreciate the once-in-a-lifetime situation.


Holding the flag near the pedestal, Xxminiman15xX-A15 paused for a moment to address his comrades over game chat. Using a low-quality microphone befitting the Xbox 360 era, the gamer decided to reflect on their experiences playing the game. “Thank you for giving me the honor to do this,” they began. “It has been some of the greatest moments of my life.” They then mentioned the sadness they felt, as this final flag capture meant the end of nearly 15 years of Halo 3 online multiplayer on the Xbox 360.

However, Xxminiman15xX-A15 was determined to leave his Spartan friends on a positive note. According to the player, this what not the end of the Halo 3 experience. They pointed out that players would always have their memories of past games to fall back on in the future. In addition, he finished his inspiring speech by noting that they could continue to play together on the Master Chief Collection. The video then concluded with the player capturing their final flag and thus bringing to a close the era of Halo 3 on Xbox 360 servers.

This touching moment recorded by JayDFW made an impression on numerous members of the Halo 3 community on Reddit. With over 2,100 upvotes, many were touched by this eulogy delivered by the Spartan known as Xxminiman15xX-A15. Most nostalgic fans believed that the speech was the perfect way to end the Xbox 360 era. However, some fans thought a teammate would attempt to betray the player while speaking. “I was expecting a teamkill and teabag,” one person joked.

This news regarding servers shutting down for Halo 3 is doubtlessly disappointing for fans of the series. Besides this touching eulogy, another group of gamers recently helped a Halo 3 player finish their final achievement in the Xbox 360 game before the servers went offline. It will be interesting to see if more nostalgic fans share their experiences with the classic game in the coming weeks.

Halo 3 is available to play on PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
