DrBizz Runs Back Through ‘The Arbiter’ Level in Halo 2

July 26th, 2017
After some time off, DrBizz is back with a cool new trick on Halo 2. He had this to say about it:

Hello friends! Well, it's been quite a while since I posted a trick video but here is a project that was only streamed live and never put into a production video until now. This involves MCC on The Arbiter and a bunch of crazy physics skulls to travel way off course and actually go backwards inside the station from the banshee ledge where the heretic leader is later in the mission. It's a long run of difficult jumps, fall breaks and blasting through closed doors with grenade piles. Amazingly, the load zone trips work backwards allowing a very long travel and all sorts of things get triggered out of order.Thanks for watching, hope you enjoy it!

Also check out and follow his Twitch stream, where you can see him breaking and tricking through levels live!(MacGyver10 17:39:27 UTC)
