Patrol is a live-action advertisement video for Halo: Reach, part of the Remember Reach advertising campaign. In the short, three UNSC troopers from 3 Charlie are on patrol, discussing a recent confrontation Noble Team had with insurrectionists, before being sent to investigate a disturbance in the Comm Relay Hub in Visegrád.[1]


Three UNSC infantrymen stand guard at night in a snowy landscape. An APC is seen on the foreground.

  • Trooper #1: Heard Noble Team had an interesting morning.
  • Trooper #2: Yeah, they surprised a couple of SCIs trying to hijack a supply transport. Innies never even saw them.
  • Trooper #1: Insurgents vs. Spartans? Ha! That's not even a fight.
  • Trooper #2: Well that's probably why-
  • Operator (radio): 3 Charlie. Come in.
  • Trooper #1: 3 Charlie. Copy.
  • Operator (radio): Prep your team for immediate mobilization to Visegrád. We've lost contact with the Comm Relay Hub. Possible insurrectionist activity.
  • Trooper #1: Roger. We're on the way. 3 Charlie, out.

Trooper #2 grabs his duffel bag from the ground

  • Trooper #3: It's not enough we fight the Covenant. We have to come back down here and get attacked by our own people as well.

The soldiers check their weapons

  • Trooper #1: That's the job. And you can bet there will be more fires to put out tomorrow... so stay focused. Let's move.

The troopers start walking toward the APC.

  • This trailer is 1:17 long, which could be a reference to John-117's service tag, 117.
  • The troopers are wearing the shoulder and chest plates of the ODST armor despite that they do not seem to be ODSTs.
