The GRD Helmet

 

       Well, it's official, the Halo Universe has gone crazy. The fabled BOB Helmet was said to be seen yesterday during Bungies "Bungie vs The World" livestream under the name of GRD. There are many theories surrounding the helmet, how to unlock it, and if it's actually on the disc waiting to be unlocked or not. This post will break some of the theories down and clear up some of your concerns and thoughts.





       This helmet was first seen months ago when it was shown off in multiple IGN screenshots when IGN visited 343 to preview the Defiant Map Pack. Soon, people noted the resemblance of this helmet to the BOBs from Marathon. Theories started to spread far and wide, and soon the whole world was calling this helmet the BOB Helmet. On July 7th, 2011, this helmet was seen in Bungies armory during a livestream and it was named the GRD Helmet.

       There are multiple theories around, and the original theories still stand firm. The first set of theories revolve around the Campaign BOBs and destroying them in certain orders, or destroying them totally and wiping them out. These theories are the oldest and have yet to be proven false.


       The second set of theories have just sprung up today. Some involve jumping through the holes within the multiplayer map Countdown. Some involve the rings found within the newly found Tribute Room Cave. Either way, these theories are spreading and spreading fast.

       
       Countdown has a series of holes spread throughout the level and people are trying to connect the holes with the helmet. Some people are saying there is a hidden skull on the level and after obtaining it you unlock the helmet. Countdown is a hot map right now, and this is due to Bungies webcam showing off a single TV sitting in a film of Countdown at one of the holes.




       The Countdown theories go as deep as people seeing the numbers on the radio on the upper level and trying to go through the holes in that order. Tonight, HRS found some interesting codes on the Countdown portion of the Campaign mission, "The Long Night of Solace". This mission contains Countdown, and the codes are as follows:


  • GRD M142008
  • GRD M01408
  • UNSC M0000813
  • 8475-191
  • M0000817
     
       The first two codes you see contain the GRD abbreviation and that is why people are connecting Countdown to the GRD Helmet. HRS will keep you all updated as we work around the clock to search and find more evidence and videos of the helmet!

    Bungie didn't make the GRD/BOB helmet , it was 343. So why would a 343 project be built into the Reach campaign? The whole concept doesn't make sense.

    If the helmet is AVAILABLE to unlock either now or in the future, it will be with 343 content most likely.

    I don't think this countdown thing is for GRD, if its anything its probably a little easter egg.

    Well countdown does have some interesting symbols under all the numbers may e that's the key to cracking a code for the holes but that's just my theory. My gamertag is R0FL W4FFL3Z if you have any ideas about that or can help with my theory...also why is floor number 4 have the unscdf? Instead of just unsc? Thers a site that I joined that has those letters but it doesn't give me any clues idk if this has just yet been given to players just yet and it's a riddle to be solved at a later time if this helmet is 343's then maybe bungie was just squealing on them as ther last goodbye?? Who knows but I'd wait a while before us gamers melt our brains trying to figure this out. But I must say there is something to do with countdown I don't remember seeing those symbols before

    Bungie definitely would not have the GRD helmet if 343 made it, esp. since 343 can't add armor to a game that's not theirs. Also you can't just add armor. Not even in DLC. For that you'd need a title update. Odds that it was shown while using a developers kit is slim since it was on the livestream. Only possible conclusions are that it was a bungie exclusive since the game came out, or its unlocked through an easter egg in the game, which would explain how 343 got it. I strongly believe in this statement. As for the campaign mission it would be, if not countdown then nightfall because it definitely looks like a sniping helmet. Where in nightfall to unlock it I have no clue. It probably help a lot to know what GRD stands for.

    I honestly don't see why people are connecting a PICTURE WITHIN A PICTURE of a moniter that was left on countdown.

    People seem to think that just because someone from Bungie takes a prolonged LOOK at something that it means it is somehow related to the Helmet/Some other easter egg.

    Nice theories. Now to just find the damn helmet, if it's even available!

    Truly, it is quite saddening to see such an enthusiastic post without even a single proof of the source of the "GRD".
    I wonder, does anyone have some?
    I have, but not to prove it right: it's to prove it wrong. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Lcai35CNCI

    hi guys this is just a thought but i think that the GRD HELMET could be part of the gungir helmet,if you took the front piece off,if that helps

  1. Anonymous said...:

    each helmet only has 3 types apart from the pilot (haunted piece)when reached top rank.maybe gungir helmet fourth piece will unlock that could be the GRD,but not at inheritor,as i can see the pilot haunted,so there needs to be something we do in the game

    what about the GRD dolls on the new anniversary map pack?

    Maybe if you spell out the codes you could make out a 25 Digit code to redeem it;so that's probably why modders aren't bragging their asses off about it.

    Hello all... I was one of the founding members of the group QTA XII/VI when NekoNoodle discovered the strange men of the same name. This search ended up leading to the search for BoBs and the GRD helmet. After a power fight we kind of ended the search and now after a year, I am going back in to search for clues. If anyone would like to help the search add GT s0urcr33m. My main efforts will be in the Anniversary maps and the GRD dolls, trying to find correlations with them.

  1. Anonymous said...:

    We need an exact location of the switch, how else are we supposed to know where they are. Seriously. EXACT LOCATION!
