I know this may sound weird, but during the first swamp part on guilty spark, when I was on that tree that you have to walk over after the 2 downed dropships(for simplicitys sake, I'll be referring to that tree as going from north to south because I don't remember what way that tree went anyway), I noticed a yellow dot on my motion tracker about NE on the cliff. I turned to check it out and I saw a shape that moved for about a second, and it honestly looked like an elite flood form. I shall try to create some asiII art to demonstrate _____g__( | | )f | | ( |m| ) ___| |__( the m stands for the Master Chief (me) and the f stands for friendly (flood?) and the g stands for the gun turret on the other side. If it happens again, I shall try to take a picture of the elusive ally flood.

I notice yellow dots on the motion tracker as well. I'm sure they aren't really allies, they're just kinda there. Glitches in the Matrix, if I may.

There are actually several times when you can see the flood out in the swamp at the beginning of the level. There are two at the place you mentioned, I think one elite and one human. Also, just wandering around, I'm pretty certain that I saw another human one on a hill. At one point, also, you see a jackal get thrown off a hill, and although there is not neccessarily a flood form there, the implication is that there is. They're most likely there to add atmosphere to the level, not a bug. Bungie is big on things like that.

Ow, forum stretch! Put pics that huge into spoiler tags next time, so you don't expand the page.

And yeah, that's the one.

Well not that one exactly, but I always thought that was a grunt (for some reason.) There everywhere on that log, even a blip in the swamp, though I didn't see the jackel getting tossed (and that is the one I want to see now. jackels are evil and deserve to die horribly hidious deaths:micro: ..... slowly:KTA: ) But still, why did it show up as an ally on my motion tracker. I think it would have been freakyer if you saw a [COLOR=red]BIG RED BLIP [/COLOR][COLOR=black]on your radar, too big to be a grunt, or a vehicle, and it's all over the place. [/COLOR] But still, I thought that level was creepy before, now I'm never going into a swamp again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You can't really follow it anywhere.

I'm not a chicken, I'm cautious. Don't go crying to me when an infection form starts sucking your face because you went into a creepy swamp at night with creepy music in the background looking for your friend LOL

I ran after the Elite Flood and guess what! I got nothing!

Yeah I followed 2 flood forms that show up on the hill (kinda) with the debug_camera thing, and I found them dead a ways from where I saw them. I guess when bungie was done with those 2, they simply killed them LOL. That could be the fate of all the other ones on the hill: they show up briefly, make you nervous, run to a place that you can't get to normally, then bungie kills them. The ones in the swamp that you can reach could just be ghost blips or something, because I combed the swamp looking for the flood form in there, and I found nothing but more creepy music (besides, I didn't see any in the direction of the swamp when that blip went off, but there may be one in the swamp)
