The above link is to the webiste of murphy's laws. If you do not know of Murhpy's Laws, I recommend checking out the site before continuing. What I would like to do is create a list of Murphy's Laws of Halo. Make your posts and I will add the best to the list. First, I shall post the fundamental law of halo.

NOTE:i've been fixing some grammatical issues with some of the laws on the list for better clarity.

I don't join any group that spams me in PM so don't try it.
SPAM applies to anything that is copy and pasted, it is very obvious when you do so don't say you wrote it. Also if you argue with me on the nature of things contained in this signature, you will be blocked and never removed. If you send to me in XBox live you will be Avoided, Blocked, and a complaint will be filed for harassment.

5. Master Chief wins. Always....

I,m the lord of the covenant.

If your only hope is a bubble shield then it is your attackers best friend.

  • 09.15.2008 9:18 PM PDT

Just because it is an Elite, does not mean you can't headshot it from behind.

I wish I was still legendary.

The only thing more dangerous to you than the enemy, is your marine with a rocket.

The terms Protective Armor and mongoose are mutually exclusive.

If you're close enough to actually hear an scorpion battle tank running, while in combat, and not part of the crew, you're too close.

Just because you have nearly impenetrable body armor and a hard-ass Elite helmet, doesn't mean you don't have exposed areas.

If you lose the game, then it is Stosh's fault.

If the enemy is in range, so are you.

If you can see the enemy the enemy, the enemy can see you.

The word "sniper" and "mine" will always be used in the same sentence.

If you know someone who tortures animals and wets the bed, he is either a serial killer or he works for Bungie Studios.

If anything can be romoved from a game, it will.

hackers always side with the hidden flaw.
Corollary: The hidden flaw never stays hidden for long.

Undead scarabs only have to walk on 2 legs.
Pancam x10000000000 gives you a seizure.
Equipment lasts 2x as long for brutes.
Trying to kill an enemy with fusion coils kills you instead.
