And now, your new challenges!



Give the Mantis a Custom Paint Job!

You work in the UNSC’s first ever custom vehicle shop, and Scribbles has brought his mantis along and wants a sick custom paint job on it! You will find below a basic drawing of his Mantis – go ahead and apply any decals/designs/colours/patterns to it, and then Scribbles will decide which he likes best!

The winner will receive 3 points, and a runner-up will receive 2 points. All other entries will receive 1 point.

Game Based

Remember Reach: Part 1

Complete mission 1, “Winter Contingency”, from Halo: Reach’s campaign on Heroic difficulty – with any 5 skulls on. Solo only.

Make sure to enable scoring! The person with the highest score for the mission will receive 3 points, the runner up will get two, any other people who complete the mission regardless will get 1 point. Should there be any ties, the person who got that score in the fastest time will win.

QWOP Competition

Put your running skills to the test in the hilariously awkward and frustrating game, QWOP. Head to this site to play.

The person who gets the furthest will receive 3 points, the runner-up, 2 points, and anyone who gets over 5 metres will receive 1 point.

[Recommended Evidence: Submit a screenshot showing your highest score; make sure it’s windowed with some kind of RUL page open and visible in the screencap, to verify it’s your score]
