Who dies in halo reach


This article is about the SPARTAN fireteam. For other uses of the term "Noble", see Noble (disambiguation).

"You know as well as I do that we wind up with some that she would have chosen—not just kids unlucky enough to survive a glassing. Orders are still being followed and those Spartans are in the field, but they are armed as SPARTANs—and they are making a difference."
— LCDR Kurt Ambrose to SCPO Franklin Mendez[1]

Noble Team,[2] more formally styled as NOBLE Team[3] and sometimes referred to as Team Noble or simply NOBLE, was a fireteam-sized unit composed mostly of Cat-2Spartan-III supersoldiers and one Spartan-II commando as of 2552. Unlike most Spartan teams which are subordinate to Naval Special Weapons,[4][5] Noble Team was under the operational control of the UNSC Army's Special WarfareGroup Three, although as Spartans, its members were still part of the Navy.[5]


Noble Team was primarily composed of SPARTAN-IIIs pulled out of their main companies by Lieutenant CommanderKurt Ambrose and Senior Chief Petty OfficerFranklin Mendez before large-scale operations where the companies were mostly wiped out, Operation: PROMETHEUS in the case of Alpha Company and Operation: TORPEDO with Beta Company.[1]

Prior to the Fall of Reach, Noble Team had managed to survive countless battles, always coming back from suicide assignments, but not without a cost.[6] Only two original members of the team were still living by 2552: Carter-A259 and Kat-B320.[7]

Noble Team also operated with non-Spartan military personnel more extensively than other Spartan teams. To grant them more operational freedom when interacting with regular military personnel, the member of Noble Team had been given higher ranks than most of the Spartans by their CO.[8] In 2552, the team was under the command of ColonelUrban Holland of the UNSC Army.[9]

The Spartan-IIIs of Noble Team were issued with equipment on par with the Spartan-IIs, such as the MJOLNIR Powered Assault Armor, which is far more advanced than the cheaper SPI armor worn by the majority of the Spartan-IIIs. The team was issued with the Mark V MJOLNIR armor on November 24, 2551. Unlike the mainline Spartan-IIs whose armor was fairly uniform in coloration, the members of Noble Team sported a variety of color schemes and field-customized armor variants.

Other SPARTANs were constantly kept on rotation for the team. When one member fell in the line of duty, a new SPARTAN would be brought in as a replacement.


"Wouldn't be a Noble mission if it were easy."
— Carter about Noble team's operations[16]

Human-Covenant War[edit]

Noble Team during the Fall of Reach.

Noble Team was formed sometime after SPARTAN-III Beta Company graduated, with Kat-B320 being pulled from the company shortly before Operation: TORPEDO in July 2545.[17] Eventually, she would become a founding member of Noble Team, along with Carter-A259—the leader of this new unit—and several other Spartans.[7]

Noble Team participated in several missions during the Human-Covenant War. By 2552, NOBLE Team operated under the command of Colonel Urban Holland, aiding UNSC Army teams in operations throughout the Inner Colonies.[18] On April 22, 2552, the team partook in an operation to destroy a Covenant battlecruiser during the Battle of Fumirole. The operation was successful, but at the cost of Thom-A293. Following Thom's death, Noble Team was assigned to the Inner Colony of Reach to hunt down an off-world rebel leader.[18] Some time after their arrival on Reach, the team received a replacement for Thom-A293 in the form of SPARTAN-B312.

During the Fall of Reach on July 24, 2552, Noble Team was among the first human forces to engage the Covenant on the planet after they were sent to investigate a communications disruption at the Visegrad Relay. Two days later, they were sent to defendONI's Sword Base, and were debriefed by Dr. Halsey afterward. In the following weeks, Noble Team split up several times, forming smaller splinter teams.

Two and a half weeks later, Noble Team conducted a night-time reconnaissance mission in Covenant-occupied territory, assessing the Covenant's deployments on the planet. The next day, they partook in the Battle of Viery along with numerous other UNSC units. After the supercarrierLong Night of Solace revealed itself, Noble Team came up with an operation to destroy the ship. The mission was a success, at the cost of Jorge-052 who sacrificed himself to destroy the supercarrier.[13]

On August 23, Noble Team fought in the Siege of New Alexandria and eventually regrouped in the ruins of the Olympic Tower. The Covenant soon began glassing the area, and Kat-B320 was killed by sniper fire before the team could reach a fallout bunker.[11] On August 29, the team was sent to demolish Sword Base to prevent the sensitive data within from falling into Covenant hands. After fighting their way inside, the team's mission was changed by Halsey, who assigned them to deliver a high priority package to the UNSC Pillar of Autumn to ensure that humanity would have a fighting chance against the Covenant and future enemies.

Jun left to escort Halsey to CASTLE Base, while the rest of the team headed for the ship-breaking yards in Asźod to deliver the package.[16] Once there, Carter sacrificed his life by ramming his Pelican into a Scarab preparing to fire on Emile and Six. Noble Six eventually managed to deliver the package to Captain Keyes, while Emile was killed by a team of Sangheili Zealots. Noble Six stayed behind, and ensured the Pillar of Autumn's successful escape by using a mass driver to destroy an approaching Covenant cruiser.[10] Not long after, Six was eventually overwhelmed and killed by Sangheili warriors, leaving Jun as the only surviving member.[14]


Spartan-IVswearing GEN2 Mjolnir based on NOBLE Team's armor.

The NOBLE, Intruder, Vigilant, Wrath, and Indomitable-classes of the GEN2 MJOLNIR line were created and named in honor of them.[19]

Sometime after humanity returned to Reach, a memorial for Noble Team was erected in Hősök tere in New Alexandria.

On January 15, 2610 a replica of the Reach War Memorial statue made by Big M Studio was sent from a former ONI agent to his cousin to be given to the curator of the Museum of Humanity, Ms. Bjarne.[20]


  • The flag in the Capture The Flagmultiplayer mode in Halo: Reach bears the emblem of Noble.
  • The voice of every Noble Team member is usable in Halo: Reach's Firefight mode.
  • McFarlane Toys created an action figure known as Noble Seven for Comic Con 2010. Although no such member canonically exists, McFarlane Toys representatives claim Bungie allowed them to create the unique figure.[21]
  • Noble Team was originally supposed to have two more members in Halo: Reach: the "sassy" Rosenda-344 and the "cowboy-like" Thom-293.[22] Both were later reduced to background characters, with Thom being a former member and Rosenda serving as a potential replacement for Emile in a counter-insurgency operation.
  • While the player's appearance is customizable, none of the members of Noble Team are able to be fully imitated in terms of appearance, in order to limit confusion. This is done by allowing Noble to have exclusive configurations the player can not have, such Emile's red security shoulder, or Kat's exclusive blue color and ability to have a prosthetic arm with the default Mark V[B] chest.
  • Though the player must pick up armor abilities to utilize them, the rest of Noble Team does not possess visible equipment on their armor to activate them. For example, in Winter Contingency, they are able to sprint for longer periods of time without the armor ability visible on their back. In all the levels, they will also use armor lock to avoid danger, such as grenades or vehicles. They could also use evade, an armor ability exclusive to multiplayer, to avoid heavy projectiles, though it is more common with Tough Luck skull activated. It is also worth noting that Jorge is able to use armor lock with his machine gun turret, despite the player not being able to do so while wielding a detached turret.
  • During gameplay, every member of Noble Team other than the player is invincible. However, their shields are breakable, and they will seek cover if they are popped.
  • On the cover of Halo: Reach and on the Noble Team statue in the Halo: Reach Legendary Edition, the team is lined up left to right in the order of their deaths. Jun is last, as he does not die in the game. Noble Six is not included on the statue.
  • Each Spartan-III's numeric tag is accompanied by a letter indicating their company of origin. Though the Spartan tags of the Spartan-III members of Noble Team were stylized in this fashion,[23] the letters are not displayed in Halo: Reach and its promotional material; instead, their tags are shown with only three numbers without a preceding company tag. The only exception to this is in Birth of a Spartan, where Carter's full tag is shown, though it is rendered as "a-259" rather than "A259". The letters were likely excised for the sake of brevity, both from an in-universe perspective and for the player's convenience.
  • In Halo 4, all members of NOBLE are hidden in the game files for Spartan Ops, on the desert map, but missing Jorge-052 because he's a seperate biped. The reason is: Halo 4's SPARTAN-IVs are based off Halo Reach's. They're all variants of the same biped. The things that are different are: They don't have any AI, armor color or dialogue. They also have their own tags, and are called "Midnight Spartans". [24]

Why did noble 6 die in Halo Reach?

As stated above by ExternalSword92, “Halo: Reach is about sacrifice”….so having 6 survive would have detracted from the overall story. I feel like the Covenant recognise the threat and would have made sure that he did die; he was vulnerable – Even Noble-Six couldn’t survive the endless waves of covenant.

What happens to Halsey at the end of reach?

I think Killswitch might be referring to the event in Halo: First Strike, though that wasn’t on Onyx, it was deep underground on Reach, safe from the Covenant’s orbital plasma bombardment. Though I was wondering what happened to Jun, since you never see him again after he leaves with Halsey.

[Locked] Noble Team's Deaths are Ironic


It's probably not twisted. It takes an observant mind to see things that way. It may be reading to much into it, but not twisted. But if it were just coincidence that would make it all the more . It would all depend on whether the situations were scripted that way intentionally by the developers, if so it adds that much more to the story of Noble Team, kind of like Japanese literature often does with it's characters.
highlighted part fixed by rabid kiwi, See above post.

also nothing happens by coincidence, in a scripted series of events. It was outlined, rough drafted and edited to death before being approved.

But if you think about it, most snipers, and recon units are taken out by anti sniping units ( AKA the other sides snipers ). CQC is over come by shear numbers, same with lone wolfs. Explosion experts killed by explosions ( Most the time trying to defuse, in place of plant. ) Leaders Through out history have been known to give their lives to allow their people to escape/finish an objective.

So the deaths well scripted and thought out, are in par with how most of the units with the same class of training meet their end. It is a great script and in fact really deep when you think about the philosophy behind it, and the emotions it installs in the viewer.

But again i must say that there is no "Irony" in it, due to the definition of irony, requiring a play on words or a double meaning.

Im not trying to troll, just trying in fact to help you understand the misuse of a word, so it does not make you look bad.
Its the same effect as putting "Extreme" on a bag of chips.
