From the original High Speed Halo News Post:

It has been a long time coming, but the Pacifist Runs Page is now on-line. There you will find a small collection of gems, new and old, which prove some problems can be solved without the use of superior fire-power.

We had to sweep several years worth of dust and cobwebs off goatrope’s 343 Guilty Spark 10:46 walkabout, which I then had to encode and colorize from black and white 8mm film. The effort was well worth it because this run is what Pacifist is all about. Goatrope uses cunning and guile to skillfully evade wave after wave of flood and does not lose even one bar of health until the final group of enemies. He also strolls through Uprising in 3:37. Be sure to watch to the end to see him take the long rappel to the bottom of the ravine.

Duelies makes a rare speedrunning appearance with a very respectable 5:04 on Outskirts. All that was required was a slightly different course and nerves of steel.

EnsnaredCadaver makes fools of us all with his 4:24 power-walk through Floodgate. I had to laugh as he just sauntered past enemies who would normally rip you to shreds. Demonstrating that enemies who normally respond aggressively to gun fire will often turn and watch as you run past.

Most believed Halo (Halo 3) could not be conquered Pacifist style. With the help of the Special Rule, some expert jumping, and a little load-zone manipulation, cheeseliker92 manages to get the job done in an impressive 15:32.
