It's likely that no skull has provided more joy in a Halo
game than "Grunt Birthday Party,"
the toggle that makes headshots on the Convenant's Grunts explode into confetti while children cheer. An enterprising Halo
fan has recreated the charming little bit of flair in real life
, building a papier-mâché
grunt, loading it up with some confetti and an exploding rifle target, then shooting at the thing with a real-life gun.
As Bungie's official blog
says, "Don't try this at home." But we're glad somebody did -- you can see the headshot in slow motion, along with some making-of pictures, after the break.
