Actually, Endure was the first thing that came to mind for me! And imppa, we have activated it and looked around before (campaign only), but the fact that the charge gets activated for each individual person makes me think that something wouldn't spawn.

If something were to change, however, I imagine it would be the other charges littered around the site. I don't think we've ever tried activating it and then dying next to the other fharges.

Has Bungie ever made a secret that was activated upon player death? It seems to me like there might be a way to get past the death barrier to actually arm the charge by pressing (RB). The fact that the elevator you ride to the roof in CM: AS starts out below the main floor seems promising. But, that is in campaign, where the detonator is armed.

Something to note, all of my tests in campaign were done in split screen with a guest signed in, and firefight was done solo. It might be good to check what the state of the detonator is depending on solo or coop in campaign and firefight.
ODST is all about switches, isn't it?

Well the Mystery Gate switch of delta halo in halo 2 required death to switch. Dying didn't cause it to switch, it was a hold x kind of thing, but fallin to your death was a necessity to use it. Now that I think about it, this detonator really reminds me of that switch.

Yeah, I've been feeling the connection for some time now...This wouldn't be the first time Bungie left something in the game that has no function at all.

Yeah, could very well be a throwback. I wonder if this level designer also designed delta halo.

We could ask. I mean no harm there right?
A frog once said if you read this you'll die but how would he know you'll die. He's a frog and frogs can't talk. Who would listen to this frog. So to read this he just wasted your life for a few minutes meaning you are closer to dying anyway so the frog was telling the truth but frogs can't talk?
