Halo is a treasure trove of secrets, stories, anecdotes and laughs.

One of Halo’s most famous multiplayer modes is Grifball, a kind of sport. In the latest Did You Know Gaming video, embedded below, the mode’s origins are revealed. Turns out it’s named after Grif from Red vs Blue – I really should have realised that – and was in fact invented by the Rooster Teeth crew. Huh! Clearly I am a filthy casual.

There are other stories in this episode that may be more obscure, for the pleasure of hardcore fans. Enjoy.
