Patrol is a live action advertisement video used to promote the Halo: Reach release. In the short, three UNSC troopers from 3 Charlie are on patrol discussing about the engagement Noble Team had with insurrectionists, before being sent to investigate a disturbance in the Comm Relay Hub in Visegrad.
Three UNSC Infantrymen stand guard at night in a snowy landscape. An APC is seen in 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 immoblization to Visegrad. We've lost contact with the Comm Relay Hub. Possible insurrectionist activity.
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.
Troopers start walking towards APC.
Cut to planet Reach shown from space, with the star Epsilon Eridani falling behind the horizon. Screen fades to black, text shown:
HALO: REACH logo is shown.
- This trailer is 1:17 long. Another reference to Bungie's love of the number 7 (1x1x7=7, as well as the length, which is 77 seconds). It may also be a reference to Master Chief's service tag, 117.
- These are most likely the troopers that were found dead on the first level of Reach.
- Strangely, the troopers are wearing certain components of the ODST armor, specifically the shoulder and chest plates.
