This hack is yet another useful way to clean up your screen for screenshots. This technique allows you to run around multiplayer maps without a weapon.
To reproduce this glitch quickly, start an Oddball game with the Plasma Pistol as your primary weapon and "None" as your secondary weapon.
Overcharge the Plasma Pistol by holding down the trigger. Then, with the gun still charged, pick up the Oddball (see ). Next, drop the Oddball. Due to this glitch, you will actually drop your Plasma Pistol as well (see ).
Figure 1. Charge the Plasma Pistol before you take the ball
Figure 2. Drop the ball and you will have no weapons
This glitch can also be triggered using a Bomb or the Halo 2 Flag.
To make sure that you don't immediately pick up the pistol again, you may want to back up as you drop the Oddball. If you do walk over something that can be picked up, you will lose your weaponless status.
